The UK can expect to get 300k PS3s at launch on March 23, semi-official blog ThreeSpeech has reported.
Please read things correctly before posting. One million to PAL territories and out of that figure, 300K appears to be the UK`s allocation.
sorry miss read.
so based on prior sony statments about how many systems said country will get, all of europe should get about 100k and then sony will go on to say "HURRAY! we met our goal of 100k units shipped for europe" and then pat themselves on the back just like they did for the US and japan with thier 6 million sold bla bla bla "we met our goal of 1 million shipped".
Sadly true. Sony promised 2million for the US, and dropped it to 1million when they didn't make it. So yeah, ~150K units if history is any guide.
Now for Sony fans to come in and claim that screwing Europe with delays has been a good idea all along, when the console was supposed to launch this time LAST year.
Sorry guys, but all your PS3's are gathering dust on USA and Japanese retailers shelves. :-(
That's 299k more than needed
if by phenomenal demand they mean only a.j. styles wants 1. ;)
i looked online futureshop in canada and they have 140 (thats national) but what surprised me is they upped the price to $699 from $659. WTF? Another strange thing is the description of the console on Bestbuy site. it mentions games once then goes on to describe it as a bluray device and talks about movies nothing about games at all. Looks like it should be called Raystation 3.
“The PS3 is not a game machine “
Sony Europe CEO David Reeves:
"PS3 would sell millions even if it had no games"
