    I guess when he said that us Europeans "don't mind the delay", he actually meant "are resigned to the fact that we'll always be last, and will have to bow to the desires of the US market".

    I pity the parents who had to tell their screaming offspring that santa won't bring them a PS3 this christmas, but I'm not too bothered - I'll either pick one up on import after the rush, or wait until March, it's only a games console after all

    The point is people. He claimed that Europeans didnt mind.
    I'll tell you now that the majority DO mind.
    The facts are that he majority of Europeans will still by the PS3, but it still stands that the majority of Europeans are getting really annoyed at being either left out in the cold or getting things 6 months after the rest of the world.

    So his statement is the biggest load of crap coming from a SONY rep. How the hell does he determine how people feel by the fact that they will still buy the product.
    As someone stated above, people might still buy a BMW over a Merc even if they have to wait an extra 6 months to get it, but it doesn't mean thay are not totally F'd off at the wait.

    If a kid gets a Wii, then plays it on a PlayStation 3, most kids are gonna run home to their mum/mom and say that they want one.

    Kids aren't stupid.

    Perhaps I'm just arguing the different market sectors the consoles are aimed at rather then the reasons for loss of sales?
    oook....one.last.time..
    In case you didn't know:
    Like XBOX and PS, BMW&Mercedes has allso got fanboys.
    A BMW fanboy wouldnt even consider buying a Mercedes.
    A teenager who has grown up playing Playstation wouldnt consider getting a XBOX (of course there are exceptions, but you get my point)
    So it was just an example! Didn't have anything to do with lifestyle.
    so I think parents would get a pretty clear message about what console their son/daughter wanted

    Sorry about these off topic posts everyone, I'm done now:P

    Why didn't you say it like that in the first place? It's not of topic as the delay will cost sales this year BUT the arrogance of Sony execs comments like this will cost Sony sales permanently. If someone feels the company doesn't care less about them there hardly going to buy there products, this is a veiw which some staff in games shops will spread onto people looking to buy to shift the consoles they DO have.
    How can a company like Sony tell if a entire continent doesn't mind waiting? Have they asked everyone? No. There just going by the sales of the PS2 dispite it being 3 or 4 years old (I think) and think that everybody will buy there product because they already have, they haven't thought of the foothold Microsoft have gained in Europe.

    To the original poster: I am fine with my situation as a EU citizen to get the PS3 at marsh. More games, and a good evaluation of what I am getting AND the online content more mature - What can be bad about being late in the game then?

    yeah because we have to wait it gives us more time to save up and there hopefully be less problems with the PS3 also more games should be out by then.

    But what can we do? Fu** up and keep waiting while you lucky people play PS3.
    Kill some chimeras for me would ya?
    Europe consists of many countries and is the biggest market. Do you really think it would be wise for Sony to release it there when they can only ship 500,000 units total?

    400,000 units go to North America and 100,000 go to Japan. It got delayed in Europe because Europe is bigger and trying to meet demand there is a little harder compared to the other two regions.

    I can understand why Sony had to delay it in Europe, ofcourse, if I was in Europe I would be upset. I would not be happy about it because I have saved up money for it but considering that if Sony had decided not to delay it and stayed with their original plan of releasing it world wide I wouldn't have been able to get one at launch anyway because of it's availability I wouldn't mind so much.

    I am sure when it does come to Europe, you guys won't be faced with shortages.

    If anything, Europes consoles will have less bugs and they will have more/better games to choose from.

    Could be worse...

    A bit annoyed, but I will live

    But I was very annoyed when I first heard the news on the radio early one morning at work.
    As it was the beeb I knew instantly it was no hoax or internet shenanigans, and that hurt.
    But I've had time to reflect (and confirm my pre-order still stands) and am actually looking forward to seeing my family this Christmas instead of pretending to be going abroad.

    400,000 units in the U.S.A is nothing because thats also includes Canada so we are actually get less console at Launch from the 400,000 units coming to North America. There are going to be massive shortages so, it's not like we are set here to enjoy the holidays with the PS3. Lets face it more that half of the gaming community here in the States are not going to get the PS3 until 2007. So Europe is not alone, we are in it with you guys.

    Thanks for the link to the whole interview, sad to say that he did not do much better on the rest of the questions. I would consider this guy an “at risk” Sony employee in these situations.

    The problem with this poll is that there is no 'I don't live in the affected area' or 'I was never going to buy it anyway'

    I bet you we'd get about 2.5% if that were the case.

    I would of thought you would just NOT vote if it doesn't affect you. Simple really.
    It's all good and well for you Americans to say 'I don't know why your moaning blah blah' But you weren't prommised the console in November, then had it pushed to March, then had Sony reps rubbing your face in it with tactless comments which is the worst bit. It's not the launch date being pushed back for me, got over that, it's the petty remarks from Sony reps that winds me up especially when we pay the most for it out of all territories. It even costs a bit more in the UK then Ireland, weather that's tax or not we still have to pay it.
