How many people do you see walking out by themselves at midnight holding £425 in their hands? That's exactly the same thing with holding a PS3.

And what is Toys 'R Us doing open that late? Wow, kids really stay up late nowadays!

Stores in Europe are heavily overstocked with (apparently) no shortage of units ready for consumers, and there's ALREADY PS3-related violence? Again? Why? They delayed a year from Kutaragi's initial promise- and in a year, people still couldn't save up enough money? Heh.

Seriously, though- if one mugging is all that goes down on this launch, that'd be a very nice statistic. I can't imagine this is the end, though.

Mate I forgot to ask, did you pre-order your PS3 and have you actually picked the big brute up yet? I thought you'd be playing on it by now, surely you haven't got time to be making comments?

What games did you decide to buy?

And what the HELL happened to all your speech bubbles? Last time I looked you were on 7 weren't you?

UPDATE: When I wrote this comment you were on 4 bubbles looks like you've now gone back up to 5!
