European PS3 Launch Date (News)

Looks like the Playstation 3 is going on sale for £425 or €599 on the 23rd March. I think that £425 is too high though, £399 sounds a lot better and for the sake of £25 they could be overpricing themselves here.

Interestingly, the article also says that Sony have shipped 1 million PS3s in Japan and 1 million in the USA too. I didn't think they'd sold that many - it's 1/3 more than the Wii has sold so far.

If they had been able to launch on time back in dec 2005, they might have caught up with the number of xbox360 sold.

I was actually shocked when I read the news last summer that they didn't even started building the console.

Yeah, I think Sony have really blown this one. They have been over-confident of their own success and they underestimated Microsoft. Unless Blu-Ray really takes off, it will be the achilles heal that brings down the PS3.
