Playstation 3 makes subdued debut in Aust, Europe

SYDNEY - The much talked about PlayStation 3 (PS3) was met with a subdued response today as the gaming console hit store shelves in Australia and Europe.

While a handful of die-hard gamers made the midnight trip to pick up the new device, the Australian, New Zealand and European launches went without the riots and stock shortages that marked the US and Japanese releases five months earlier

what did they really expect to sell out with that lack luster list of titles. But cmo'n of course they had to hype it up, what other choice did they have.
In any case come the end of the year gaming should be better for all consoles alike, only good things can come for the consumers from competition between the companies.
Just enjoy the games folks , anyhoo back to work.

the difference is that the 360 was the only next gen console out at that point, it didn't have to have a great games lineup, becuase they beat the competition to the market. now that the 360 has been out for a year, and some great games are out now, the more expensive ps3 needs to give buyers an incentive to purchase one.

shotputking3592d ago

sony can't expect to keep up if they don't start moving some consoles and getting some games out there. they need to hurry up and get some top games out there so they can move some consoles, and not lose anymore exclusives... otherwise, blu-ray players will eventually drop in price, and the ps3 will just be thought of as an expensive blu-ray player.

Games on 360 When some of them are all using Unreal Engine 3 Gears of War was hyped about the graphics BioShock doesn't even look fun at all and Mass Effect and Too Human doesnt even look like tripple A titels its just going to be like the rest of the FPS games out there for the XBox 360 considering thats all the 360 can do is FPS games

It matters not deepbrown cause theres still shooters even if they are a 3rd person shooter and in your case the games look good to you but not all 360 fans would agree considering that some have there dignity and know that XBox 360 is just a FPS game, game console and I wouldnt be talking nicodemus considering your losing bubbles to and for the people that actually cares about bubbles would be the one that needs to grow up when people really dont care about bubbles what is this kinder garden and you tell me to grow up nicodemus I'm not the idiot that is reminding me that I'm losing a bubble only a moron such as yourself needs to grow up and saying I'm losing a bubble thats like a kinder garden teacher saying I'm losing a star you would have to be pathetic to actually care about bubbles in this web site

and of course bladestar doesn't think he has the symptoms look what
hes doing hes convincing himself that he doesn't have fanboy symptons when he clearly does bladestar your just only defining yourself that with that symptoms

Contra26 its funny that you say that considering that Wii is raping
Microsoft XBox 360 247 when we all know that XBox 360 sucks in every way and plus it seems people have stopped buying the XBox 360 in america cause I havent yet seen change in the numbers on 10.4 millon.

nicodemus3592d ago

I think you should be banned.

A) It doesn't matter what the article is, you go in to some blind rant about your hatred of the 360

B) You always do this (which is why you lost so many bubbles in such a short period of time)

C) Anyone who loses four bubbles in a row should be banned (because they are obviously incapable of changing)

D) Mass Effect and Too Human have nothing to do with the article (neither of them are even FPS!)

Either grow up, or get lost!

BIadestarX3592d ago

You know the symptoms of a blind lemming super fanboy? Well, here is a scientifically proven method to diagnose these losers.
The fanboy proceed to enumerate a list of games for the other console; stupidly enough and convinced that he is correct he proceeds to pick the top games such as the ones known to be AAA (Gears of War) and try to undermined their success. But he will not stop there; he will even try to criticize titles of which not much is known about (Too Human) and are yet to be released, "Unreal Engine 3 Gears of War was hyped about the graphics BioShock doesn't even look fun at all and Mass Effect and Too Human doesnt even look like tripple ". The next step is to contradict himself by saying, "the XBox 360 considering thats all the 360 can do is FPS games." yes prior to that comment he named a list of game which of witch not a single one of them is from the FPS genre.

Good Job [Says you] thanks to you we are able to identify with hi accuracy the symptoms of a pathetic fanboys.

techie3592d ago

Oh dear. Says you. Bioshock looks incredible...really amazing. Mass Effect looks great, not sure if it's for me. Too Human will be the best! Such a deep story and I believe it's going to be amazing. The 360 is known for FPS but for a start Mass Effect, Too Human and Gears are all not fps...
