According to Sony Europe VP European consumers don't mind waiting an additional 4 months for the PS3. Since I know we have several European members on this forum I'd like to know if this is true.

Sony talking more BS, VPs need to keep their mouth shut and allow developers to talk...

It's a compliment really. It means they have more patience. And why will they buy more? Cause they have more time to save up money for it. It's completely logical for Sony to beleive this way. Really

They are right. I dont give a ****, i got a X360 and lots of games this winter. What i do care about is Sony taking a crap all over us. They can kiss my ass.

I dunno... i can wait... but i don't desperately need a 360 either.

I for one, certainly haven't written off Sony though.

We get treated like third class citizens anyway by Sony so I dont really care anymore. From the psp to God of War. Wankers.

Went the 360 route and never looked back, and have no hinkling to buying a PS3 whatsoever.

Thats a bunch of crap, most people I know who have PS2's usually also don't have a PC (its just the way it is for some odd reason)... and they're not best pleased, they're just not voicing that on the net. Personally its swayed me into getting a 360...

should change to 'from a survey of 1000 europeans who could actually be bothered to do the survey this time, seeing as we dont listen much to our european friends much, we deduced that europeans dont mind about the delay. even though we worded it in a way that they had to answer this way, such as:'

'would you wait a few extra months for a ps3 if it meant the games were in your european language'

a: no i wouldnt mind, i do what sony says
b: no i wouldnt mind, i cant change sony's mind
c: no, i wouldnt mind, i have to have my games in english
d: yes i mind, but i dont care about hearing foreign voices because im an idiot





get the idea? ive had to put up wth this $&(% for ages and i dont lke it much

I'll be buying a PS3, but I don't mind it being delayed. The more time that is taken into quality the better. I don't want the same issues I've been having with my 360.

I guess Sony VP's are correct, Europeans don't care.:p

It sucks but from a business point of view it somewhat makes sense. US is Microsofts territory, Sony can't give up ground there. Nintendo may run away with Japan and it's Sony's home territory so they have to launch there.

Now does this mean UK will see a large amount of units at launch? For Sony's sake I hope so. Heavenly Sword better be ready as well.

i wouldnt bank on it. they will probably have to 'convert' it for the euro market.

like back in the old days when they changed the shape of the $&$(&*"$ cartridge

Are you ppl serious? its not like were not getting it :/ so we'll play it after some ppl. so. friggin. what?
Whiners. Just stop and wait please. Whine after you actually have something to whine about.
You dont have to buy anything, just say that you hate sony and you dont want a ps3. Is that so hard?
Sony lies, sony are asses, sony are evil or whatever. Do you ppl ever think about YOURSELVES?

Huh? Sony never used a cartridge, unless you mean memory?

I don't think there's anything going to be different with the UK version that will delay it. I think games on PS3 are even putting all the languages on the same disc, ie. Resistance.

i meant when nintendo/sega did t in the past. it irks me about release dates, and not being able to buy games for stupid reasons, like not getting released (when are we going to get magna carta???)

i dont whine about much things, and im certainly not a sony hater at all, but i hate the release date bs that we in the eu have to put up with.

it does always seem lke we have a lack of voice when it comes to games over here.

half the games i dont care if they are in japanese or not, if i have an instruction leaflet and the story isnt so important.

if i was writing a game i would have it texted in as many languages as i could from the offset. its only polite and fair to the whole world, really.

i can watch a foreign film no probs, i prefer it without a dub > surely subtitles arent that hard to do?

<sorry to derail to games rant, i guess ill never end this one till ts ok>

You know, Sony might have a point. I mean despite all the bitching and moaning people might do online, all Sony sees are sales numbers. And if they stay as Sony estimates, then as far as they are concerned, Europeans don't care. I mean seriously, all these statement piss us off, because we are gamers and we are in the know generally, but most poeple are sheep, and they'll buy whatever Sony puts out, whenever it eventually comes out. Thats the perk of being "brand".

I am going to see if I can import a ps3 maybe around early January. I hope i can mod it to play all region dvds.

You're still assuming that there will be enough PS3's around. Even in the US I doubt most people will be able to walk into the store and buy one. That will probably happen around the same time it comes out in the UK.


PS: I don't think PS3 is region locked. I could be wrong on that one though.
