  • 80Gb PS3 confirmed for Europe, says French site

    GI was right it seems: according to Jeux Video the 80Gb is a definite for Europe and will cost the same as the current 40Gb.

  • That was the news – Week 15, 2008: Announce the 80Gb PS3 SKU and DualShock 3 for Europe, SCEE, or risk damage later this year

    The Americans were pulling little colon-”o” emoticons, but the news was greeted with surly derision in Europe. SCEA announced last week that the MGS4 gunmetal PS3 was to launch in America in limited quantities, the pack to include a 40Gb PS3, a DualShock 3 and the game itself. America, it seems, is blessed by Sony. […]

Can we have it in Europe now, please?

    According to this Dutch PlayStation site, DualShock 3 will be released in Europe on May 2. The site references “a reliable source” but no more information is given. As rumours go, this one’s plausible due to the fact that MGS4 is released a month later and uses the new pad’s funtionality, but don’t go holding […]

  • America in wanting DualShock 3 non-shock

    DualShock 3 has gone to second place in the Amazon.com charts prior to is release on April 15.

So, logic dictates, if […]

  • Satin Silver PS3 out in Japan now

    And here it is. £217 to you, provided you can get someone to post it to you. Play-Asia won’t ship them to anywhere in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway. We’re sure you can find a way around that. It’ll be faster than waiting for SCEE to release it over here.

    Following the announcement last night that DualShock 3 is to be released in America on April 15 – alongside GT5 Prologue – for $55, SCEE has said that the controller’s passage to Europe is still out there in Q-something. “Release date and price for the DS3 in Europe is still to be confirmed,” said a […]
