Well then why did Sony treat their "biggest market" like crap and release there last? I really don't see the PS3 doing anything there different then in Japan and America.
Their the only ones launching with a console worth buying.
If what these shops are guessing at... the PS3 will be soldout... in Europe for more than 2 weeks. All I have to say is. Sony will remain the #1 console. (Sony is shipping 1million+ to europe. If all pre-orders are taken, and shops sellout on day1... I expect that. But when Sony's 2nd boat with 500,000 or even a million hit Europe... And it sells out. That is when PS3 closes the ranks on the Wii. If what that article is true about the demand will exceed the supply... That means the PS3 might pass the Wii in total sales by the end of April. That is ALOT more than I expected. I was guessing ~1million at the end of March. and 1.5million at best at end of april. If the PS3 hits 2million at the end of april, That would knock the Wii from #2, and sales would far surpass the 360. Sales like that in Europe, would translate into Internet press, wich is a big spot. Wich could curve americas more into the PS3 over Wii/360. Wii sales could drop because of the Wii 'failing' in europe. Japan once agian... is a market of it's own. (language barrier) And thus the only redemption the PS3 will have is games.
My favorite games come from europe. Even if PS3 NA fails. As long as I can buy europe games... I dont care. (I import half my PC games from europe... even when their for sale in america)
What is diffrent?
Japan: Resistance, Motorstorm (this market hates FPS)
EU: AC4, Oblivion, Fear, MotorStorm, VF5, Tekken5.
America had 1 game truly worth buying.
Europe has at least 5 full budget games, and 3 or 4 PSN games.
Europe has every game America has as-well.
March 23d I think the PS3 has more games than Wii. (that I want to play)
Right now. Its Even. Cept the Wii has other stuff as well.
Wii: Zelda. ; Other stuff: Wii sports, Rayman, trauma center.
PS3: Resistance... ; Other stuff... HD movie trailers.
PS3 starts launching titles on February 20th.
