Sony delighted as PS3 surpasses 5m sales in UK

Postby StonecoldMC » 11 Oct 2012, 10:00

Congrats to Sony, nice to see that all of the Big 3 have a healthy install base here in the UK.

Wonder what kind of support we we'll see for the PS3, Wii and 360 once the new consoles hit the shops?

it is nice to see Sony doing well with the PS3. I personally feel it was better than the 360 in many ways but you cant beat the 360 online experience.

Sony have flopped this gen because of lack of innovation and a high premium so making things up now is pointless but anything to lessen the loss they have made this Gen. I have a feeling it will happen again next year with the ps4 if the specs and power is to be believed.

I am surprised, only because nearly all(even this site) UK gaming sites are all anti-Playstation[PS3] brand since it came out & most of the 'Kids' in the UK think Xbox 360 is the best thing ever still lol

Well, you pack of bastards asked for him and there he is on his alternate "honest guv I ain't him" account. I hope you're bloody happy with yourselves. Why didn't you ask for Holly Willoughby instead!

Play a PC online :wink:

As I have said before this generation is almost a replay of the SNES/Megadrive generation with two awesome machines, pretty much evenly matched and selling equally well. Each system has its strengths and each has its strong regions but overall both are pretty even if you dont wear rose tinted fanboy specs :wink: .

There he is. If you say it, he will come.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Well I just bought one last week, having owned a Wii and 360 since their respective launches. I've never bothered with Sony consoles, but I am really enjoying the PS3. I figured I'd buy all the exclusive games I'd wanted to try, so I did! I can't believe I might never have played the Uncharteds!
