It's not just SCEA that's gone through a re-imagining of its marketing strategy lately — SCEE's jumped on board too.

New SCEE Boss Looking To Improve PS3's Fortunes In The UK

The UK is somewhat of an anomaly

While the PlayStation 3 tends to fare strongly around Europe, the UK remains something of a poisoned chalice for the PS3.

It’s a real milestone. UK is one of the territories..

PlayStation Vita's Launch Schedule Doesn't Make Sense -- 'Twiggy' The Push Square Opinionator

We always knew it was a likely scenario, but we chose to believe otherwise
