220,000 PS3 Units For UK Launch

Posted in General at 7:53 pm by playstation3

SCE UK’s managing director, Ray Maguire, revealed in an interview with SPOnG that there will be around 220,000 PlayStation 3 units available for the UK launch on March 23. His estimate is based on the one million units being ship to Europe, and having UK take 22% of that. 

He was quoted saying that it will be the largest launch in games industry history “Probably over four times PlayStation One, and close to double the amount of PS2s. So, it’s going to be a logistical nightmare – that’s a lot of trucks to get around.”

Fans should also be happy in the UK to know, “Product is already on its way, on ships, at the moment, and there is more being generated every single day.”

    I have found this offer on a website that will cost nothing.
    It is 100% genuine. It has been featured on the BBC.

    It is for a totally FREE Playstation 3 the bigger 60GB version.
    Delivered on release. I didn’t believe it myself but I have looked into it and it’s easy.

    All you have to do is follow the link below or paste it into your browser.


    Follow the registration, doesn’t cost anything.

    Once registered first thing you have to do is choose from and register with an offer, there is a few to choose from. It is the advertisers of these offers that pay for your PS3.

    The best one in my opinion is the Love Film offer.
    It’s a movie club, you just register and you can select the cheapest subscription which is £5.99 but you don’t actually have to pay anything because it comes with a free trial period. And you can cancel before you pay.

    BUT you have to wait till they send you a DVD, then watch it or not, and send it back then cancel your subscription a few days before your first payment is due. Otherwise it won’t register you, and you wont be eligible for a Playstation 3.

    If you don’t cancel it they will charge you £5.99 but you will get 4 DVD’s to watch. And as long as you cancel it within that next month you won’t get charged again. Or choose to keep it it’s not a bad offer.

    Then you have to refer this offer to friends. And you receive a £400+ PS3!! This is no joke.

    Takes just a little work for no cost and you get a great prize.
