    Wow. That's all I'll say.

    It says it's official too...

    EDIT: In another announcement, Sony has said that it will limit the number of units going to North America AND Japan.

    This could turn out to be the biggest blooper in videogame history!

    EDIT: A word from IGN
    Wow, saying an entire market such as Europe will not cause serious damage to the PS3 buisness? Isn't that a slap in the face to everyone in Europe that was eagerly awaiting the PS3? (not me)

    HAHAHAHA, sucks to all Sony fans. I dont think they can call it a global launch anymore.

    Although saying that, it will take the pressure off Nintendo to release in Europe early. Hopefully Nintendo have already got their strategy to release in place, and won't delay in Europe simply because they can. That would really suck. Still, if Nintendo goes ahead with the October/November release, we may see Europe become one of the biggest markets for the Wii!

    *crosses fingers for the latter option*

    Typical. Yet another example of console manufacturers not giving a damn about Europe. It doesn't matter if it's delayed in Europe, as long as America gets it on time... :rolleyes:

    With so much negative publicity for Sony already you really have to wonder what gave them this "great" idea. Problem is Sony have become too arrogant. They think people will just buy whatever crap they release at any price, no matter how ridiculous, but if they continue like this they could end up losing a lot of money.

    Very true. Once more, the whole "reason" that Europe is so far behind the rest of the world is because of localisation. As far as I'm aware, Australia would only come under an English speaking country, so the German/French/Spanish/Italian etc... wouldn't be needed. Heck, I don't think the UK should have to wait for things to be localised either, considering we just get the PAL versions of the American stuff (and even some of them are emulated badly). Have to say though that PlayStation was really much worse than Nintendo on that front (In my experience).

    I know. It kinda makes me feel sorry for the SonyFanboys...

    ...Hopefully they will veer away from the Dark side and return to the light side of the force!

    I think many people in Europe who were going to get the PS3 will convert to the other consoles, because time is presious

    I live in the UK, I was waiting for the PS3 but now I am getting a Wii!! (A change of direction, this will be my first Nintendo console [that I actually plan to use, anyway!])

    Hopefully, the Wii will be released soon. I am quite looking forward to it!

    I'm very sure the same thing occured before the PS2 came out. I certainly remember. Although I doubt very few people even remember that far back. :lol:
