  • News Sony Confirms 3 Million PS3 Unit Milestone In France

    Sony's announced that the PlayStation 3 has shifted 3 million units in France since its release in March 2007

  • News LittleBigTVAd Focuses On LittleBigCreators

    SCEE's posted up the LittleBigPlanet 2 television advert over on the PlayStation Blog

    The ad was created in conjunction with a number of high profile LittleBigPlanet level designers, and the results are kinda amazing. The coolest thing is that each of the levels are available to play now in the game. Our favourite is the Mediterranean Street Race, a super clever level which is a mix of Outrun and..

  • News DanceDanceRevolution Gets New Moves in Europe in March

    PS3 title on the way

    DanceDanceRevolution has been out in North America for a while now, but European fans of the dancing series were clueless as to when or if the game would make its way to the continent. Until now, that is, with Konami renaming the game DanceDanceRevolution New Moves and bringing it over in March 2011. Coming to the continent with...

  • News Happy, Happy Birthday European Playstation 3!

    Guess what Europeans - the Playstation 3 is officially three years old today in your neck of the woods

    That's right, the system went on sale in Europe precisely three years ago today - March 23rd. It's been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for Sony since then, with initial PS3 sales tempered by a high price-tag. It is, however, with the launch of the PS3 Slim that the system has finally caught its..

  • News Sony: PSP Go Sales "In Line With Expectations"

    It seems some parties are intent on ensuring the PSP Go fails

    Despite having no personal interest in the product, many people like to trash talk it. It's a bit like when the PS3 got cheaper but wasn't backwards compatible. We cue it down to insecurity. Whatever, we digress. Point is, PSP Go sold fine according to Sony. PSP hardware is up 120 per cent compared with the previous week, with both PSP..

    Surprise

    The PS3 Slim is shifting units! Lots of units in fact. So many units that sales in the UK have increased by a whopping 999% since the Slim was introduced. So put it this way if Sony were selling 1,000 PS3s a week pre-Slim, they're now selling 9,999 units a week. Blimey. Did we get our maths right? We're not quite sure actually. Can someone confirm with a decent example? Ta.

  • News Microsoft Boast Basic 1Million Console Lead On The Playstation 3 In Europe

    Microsoft recently announced a 9 million XBOX 360 sale mark in Europe

    Sony then claimed 10 million Playstation 3 sales in Europe at GamesCom. Interestingly, an MCV article has Microsoft's Chris Lewis completely U-turn and claim a "confident" one million unit lead. Either we're confused or someone has their maths wrong. Still, there's no denying the XBOX has a much greater grip on Europe..
