.... not worth it.

Yeah... apparently a lot of other people agree with you.



A free game, free drinks and food... and probably a sort of party with music and all for the launch. That's quite cool enough to justify waiting for the console. Here in France, there's a party near the Eiffel Tower tonight. But for now in every shop i went to, the demo PS3 were all left free and no one seemed to care about the PS3...



Does anyone know that there are 1 Million PS3 systems released on day one in Europe? I remember reading that there was going to be "1 Million PS3 systems in the launch window" but I have not seen any confirmation on how many there would be on launch day.



yesterday, Georges Fornay (french CEO of SonyEurope) talks about 60K pre-resa (and 100k or 150k PS3 available for the launch), for France. (he reminds that Wii has had 75k in the launch week) Don't think PS3 will sell good in my country... HappySurriel : I have heard about 1 million PS3 for the first month. (and : 350K for Great Britain, 150 or 100 K for france during the first day

Well 220k in UK, 150 in France (according to Fab) so I would guess ~200k in germany. 5-10k in each scandinavien country x4 (finland counted to) = 600-700k mayby? Add some 100k for italy, spain, switzerland and so on. You are probarbly close to 1 million.

A good place to start to get a feel for figures is: http://www.vgcharts.org/euroyearly.php?console=PS2 We will be first with the Euro numbers when they are in... please keep posting in here and tell us about demand near you, whether there are sell-outs and so on. It's all interesting to know. Personally, I see it as this: UK ~ 220k France ~ 150k Spain ~130k Germany ~ 100k Italy ~ 80k Scandanavia ~50k Others ~ 50k Total launch allocation in Europe ~ 780k Other PAL regions ~100k So maybe approaching 900k total, of which I expect "only" around a 60-70% sell-out from reports to date so maybe 600k for the launch in PAL regions? Note: These are just (educated) guesses, we have no hard data as yet...



@ ioi

Others ~ 50k
Preorders for the Benelux alone are above 44k since a week or so ago (50k expected to be available for launch).



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

PS3 vs 360 sales

@ ioi

Total launch allocation in Europe ~ 780k
I read reports of estimates of about 300k for the UK.
