    PS3 – must try harder. See me after class.

    Actually that’s not as many Wiis as I thought it would be. I always get the impression that it’s sold “a gazillion”.

    Yeah, same. I reckon PS3 will do the do this year, though.

    Well, not too long to Metal Gear now. Both of the previous games sold about 800,000 in Japan – no PS3 game has gotten even close to that. Should be a good indicator as to whether they actually give a shit or not. :-D

    I can’t see how it can possibly fail anywhere. They go fucking mad for MGS in Japan, and it looks fantastic this time.
