It's strange, it's almost as if... something has entered my rectum...

You heard it here first, Europe; we're getting it for Christmas 2012.
Watch this, it had me in tears laughing:

Also, could people please tell me that they're from CVG in their friend requests, otherwise I won't accept them. Cheers.

Because they never remember that the UK celebrates Christmas at the same time as America...
If they want to sell 70 million, they will do well to remember that.

It would be nice for Sony to remember that PAL territories got PS3 last, quite a while after Japan and America, and for us to not be left until last this time. Though we did get Move first, but that's not the same as a new platform.

I'm trying to stay positive about this - there's still a good chance for us to get it this year. And if we don't, then at least there'll likely be more games for us to choose from when we do get it.

I think they need to launch this holiday, well before Wii U's release date is announced, and before the 3DS' catalog of games swells up.

US market is bigger (Something like 40M PSN accounts compared to 8M in the UK)

US is where MS is based

Sony r behind xbox in US but 2nd (just) in Europe (BUT NOT UK)

Delayed in "Some territories"... translating as... "Europe you're getting shafted again"

Sony are ahead in Europe as a whole... but behind in the UK.

PAL includes all of Europe and Australia and for sure arround 30M accounts. Plus I know lots of Europeans with US accounts.

Hmm well how many PSV games are actually ready to be launched? They should hold off until theres at least 10+ big launch games and that will help persuade people to purchase it.
