It's really weird - noone knows the launch is coming...there have been NO ads - so the only people in the know are those that are on the web. So why havent they started them yet!?

For example for the Wii they had those cool Wii sport ads playing way soon as you see that you go and type in google how much it is to get a Wii. I wonder why they are holding pack on ps3's not our campaign. Who cares. 220,000 units is loadsssss compared to previous launches

I think millions waited for PS3 due to the Sony execs hype and now they see the realality, more and more Europeans on XBL every day with no or little gamer score from counties i all but forgot about (means they have just bought the console).

Consumer interest down on expectation for PS3, just wait untill after the launch.

so funny to see the xbots started to panic as the Euro launch approaches. they will say just about anything to make themselves feel better at this point. How bout just enjoying gaming and not worry so much about which machine it is on.

I think the bad reputation of sony is spreading, a lot more people are finding out that the PS3 has the same performance as the XBox while the Xbox is much cheaper. Based on that logic, what decision would the average gamer make. Except if you want a blu-ray player

"Comet Head of Games, Ross Edwards commented that, "whilst demand for PS3 has been in line with market expectations pre launch- as the Official launch date looms closer interest is really building."
Excellent news for the ps3

There seems to be such conflicting news over whether the PS3 is gonna do well or not on the European launch. I don't know what to believe.

I'll let the hard facts speak for themselves when the PS3 is released next week. Hopefully whichever side gets it wrong (those expecting it to do badly and those expecting it to do well) will admit their predictions were wrong and apologise gracefully.

Although judging by the comments over the last year, I don't think any side will back down or eat their words!

Time will tell. we will know soon enough if we will see people selling their newborns to get their hands on a PS3.
