    Sony’s new PS3 has managed to become the second fastest selling console ever released in the UK, with only the PSP managing more sales. In its first three days, the console has managed to notch up 165,000 sales in the United Kingdom, with 20,000 units being sold in Australia. Despite beating the Wii and Xbox 360 with initial sales, it can’t be forgotten that both of those consoles had supply shortages (in fact, the Wii still does) and managed to sell more or less all consoles that were shipped, whilst Sony has only managed to shift about three-quarters of the 220,000 PS3s finding their way onto UK shelves. Looks like Sony was right when it claimed European consumers wouldn’t mind waiting for the console – either that or it would have had some amazing sales figures.

    Who lives in Kent? lol

    He's a cool teacher. Drives a sporty Ford Fiesta, nice speakers in the back, new exhaust. Likes football and compter games...not a boring teacher like the rest of them.

    And we watch a film in the lesson every now and then. Watching "Buffalo Soldiers" at the moment, cos we do History.

    I'll delete this post later though cos anyone reading it from my school will know exactly who I am :eek:

    I'll just have to quote it so anyone who looks can know :p

    And if I remember right your name is Callum, so that should help them ;)

    I don't know anyone with a PS3 myself, but I only know one other person with a Wii too, so I guess it's just too early.

    lol

    personally, i'd be amped if someone recognized me from here, but i doubt that's going to happen, such a small community (and I like it that way)

    /offtopic

    I just hope sony comes with some good games for that ps3. maybe now that gears of war is coming to pc, maybe to ps3 too? prolly not (halo for xbox and pc only remember), but the fact that the ps3 hasn't sold out it's initial shipment is always a bit daunting for pr to field pertinent questions.
