Taiwan market: Only 500 PS3s available for launch on November 17

Taiwan market: Only 500 PS3s available for launch on November 17

Haha how embarrassing. Sony's a bunch of losers.

And now Circuit City is reporting that their ENTIRE line of 20GB versions of the PS3 have been totally canceled nationwide and they received no extra 60GB versions to compensate.

  1. mmm.. how odd.. I can't find any numbers for how many xbox 360s were shipped to Taiwan for the world wide launch date.. Wait.. Microshaft didn't ship any there for launch.. They had to wait 8 months or so to get their.
    This is kind of what I love about internet news. 0 units isn't any interest, but 500 must mean that sony's on the verge of bankruptcy. Had the titles of the news articles been "Sony blesses Taiwan with launch PS3s" noone would have linked it. Sony'll weather the storm.. Its a good system, and the people who play console games will eventually buy it for titles that are on it. I'm sure personally it will end up being like the current gen, I have all three systems, but I only have about 5 xbox games because everything else either came out on PC or for another system. With the new gen I can see the Wii quickly becoming my favorite because I'm realising more and more that graphics don't make a game great. Innovative controls and original gameplay will keep me interested far longer then high end shiney. Thats why I have about 15 DS titles and 4 PSP games.

  2. It's easy to say great graphics dont make great games when the system cant do great graphics.

    If that concept were true there wouldnt need to be a reason to push bigger better graphics.

    Great graphics dont ONLY make a great game, that is true.

    Personally, I like the idea of the Wii, but I would get tired of moving my hands around or orientating myself in a certain way to the screen to play the thing. Everyone seems to forget that Nintendo hasnt had a very good track record at re-inventing game controls.

  4. And just for the record, Microsoft released to Taiwan in March - roughly 4 months after the initial US launch.

    Which reminds me, when will the PS3 launch in Europe again?
