    According to comments made by David Reeves, president of SCEE, support for PS2 titles will indeed be limited --- Engadget

    Did I miss any recent announcements?

    I think the PS3 will do well launching here in Europe.

    Personally, I believe that the launch over here will go a lot better than that of the U.S and Japan. However, I may be wrong.

    You never know with these things.

    Only time will tell...and that time is in 16 days!

    Cant wait!

    This means that Sony will now more than likely take a software approach much like Microsoft is currently doing. --- From the article you posted...

    lol what??
    I live in the UK and they are getting desperate to try and fill up the pre-orders. The staff in game came up to me and my friends and actually asked us if we would pre-order the ps3 and if any family members were interested.

    Now you mention it, when I went to pre-order FFXII mid-february, a staff member at GAME asked me if I would like to pre-order a PS3. I said no, because FFXII came first!

    However, GAME are still taking pre-orders even now...along with Virgin, HMV etc...plus the game website still says "GREAT NEWS : We are now able to confirm delivery for launch day for all existing preorders. If you have not yet ordered, HURRY and place your order now for guaranteed delivery on the 23rd March!"

    I mean...the console is released in just over 2 weeks...shouldn't pre-orders usually be exhausted by now? (I went into GAME last saturday and pre-ordered...Im Guaranteed a launch console)

    I think it will FAIL badly.

    My mate walks into Game in Manchester, UK and asks if he can have a GAME bag to store his magazine in.

    The sale assisant turned around and seriously this is what he said

    'If you want a bag you'll have to Pre-Order a PS3'

    My mate went 'Your trying to get rid of PreOrders that fast?'

    The assistant just laughed and gave him a Bag

    LOL it will Fail. Stores near mine have sold 1/4 the amount of Wii Preorders...
