European PS3 Pre-Orders Sky-rocketing

  Here's something you may not have expected to hear out of Europe...but Woolworths (the Wal-Mart of the U.K.) has mentioned that the demand for the PlayStation 3 is incredibly high. Despite the price of the console, this is a testament to Sony's popularity over in the PAL regions. Woolworths claims that pre-orders have exceeded previous records, and that the chain was taking a pre-order every 20 seconds this past week.

   "It's the hottest gaming system since the PS2 launched in 2000 - demand will outstrip supply," said Gerry Berkley, Woolworths' head of games. The PS3 will retail for 425, which, when converted, is actually more expensive that the North American and Japanese versions. PlayStation 3 will launch on March 23rd in Europe, Australia, and various other Asian countries with a fantastic launch featuring 30 games.
