      How many of these are replacements for ps2’s which broke with the “Disc read error”?

      If they can sell 42.40 million in Europe, 23.99 million in Japan and 44.86 million in the US why is Europe the last to get new consoles?

      (i) because unlike JP and US, they need to localise a lot (it’s not 44m US PS2s all with same OS, box, booklets, plugs, cables, etc – it’s so many m UK PS2s, so many m FR PS2s, etc.)

      (ii) -linked to (i) above- because the distribution and servicing network (the ‘sales’ architecture) is much more fragmented

      (iii) for historical reasons (haven’t we Europeans always been the red lantern for releases?!?) :lol:

      But fear not – given the recent jihad on EU grey imports, they still care just as much to get your hard-earned EU cash. Only, you spend when Sony tells you to spend, not before ;)
