PS3, Sony PrayStation…..

The european lauch of the Playstation 3 was less than a resounding success, or so I’ve head. The initial batch of consoles doesn’t even seem to have sold out yet. That must really hurt Sony.

I can’t say I’m really surprised by this actually. Have you seen the cost of the new console? It’s 599 euro’s, and the games are about 70 euro’s. But of course the costs don’t stop there. In order to really appreciate the new console, you’ll need to buy a decent HDTV, setting you back another 1200 euro’s or so on average. That’s a pretty steep price, and it’s probably also the reason the WII is doing so well right now. It’s cheap, fun, new and you don’t need any additional new hardware to show it of.
