It does not be necessary itself there to be mistaken, alone the organized event for his gone out did not meet the success awaited. The sales of the Playsation 3 realize a pretty box according to the amount advanced by Fujio Nishida, President of Sony Europe. This are 600 000 consoles that would have found taker in the two following days his gone out March 23 2007.

In France, the figure confirmed by Georges Fornay, president of Sony Computer Entertainment France and vice president of SCE Europe, rises to 78 000 PS3 on the same period of two days. France positions itself behind England and its 173 000 unities, but gets ahead of Spain and respectively third and fourth Germany (the amount again are not known).

"For Sony, this would be the biggest success all confused consoles in France."

Confused you say? Hehehe

nix3686d ago

this news was translated from babelfish.. so lets not jump into minute details like grammer and sentence constructions. the BIG news is - 78,000 PS3 SOLD!!!

MS, i think france loves PS3 too... q:

techie3686d ago

No I like the confused consoles bit. It's funny.

Now legitimate question.

600,000 sold in EUROPE? Is that not including OZ and other PAL regions they just launched in? Because the 1million shipped were accross the whole PAL region...so perhaps they are a lot closer to 1million than we think. Around 800,000 I expect.

That would make sense, as all reports have said Europe...

Armyless3686d ago

I can't poke a little fun at the horrible translation? I think that mis-translation does a better job of summing up the entire gaming industry better than any poet could have... "confused consoles".

Of course we should all toast the French for the (late but) nice 78,000 sales numbers. Maybe they had the launch date confused. Oh well.

nix3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

well... now the site says -
PS3:
"0.61m Others"
and "2.80m TOTAL"

yup deepbrown.. should be around 1 million. let's keep our fingers crossed!!! (:

deepbrown (below)... i need a bubble too.. i lost a couple while i said something about theM.

i know.. some of these fanboys don't appreciate sense of humour! they are quite blinded. anyway.. i'll give you each a bubble... armyless and deepbrown. q:

techie3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

Armyless feel free to make amusing comments again. We need them. I got labelled as a fanboy for laughing at the Sony response to the elite...when it was hilarious how these companies b*tch at each other...I think I got that accross though.

Bubbles for armyless

Adriokor - depends

Adriokor3686d ago

WHAT ARE YOU GUYS SAYING....

Xbox360 fanboys said it wouldnt sell. And the Xbox360 was the perfect console.

Give it another year and a half and you will see. Xbox360 super elite..
now with Blu-ray drive included..lol

Just teasing. But I do see a big momentum change in the console war as you all call it.
