I'm still a bit appalled by the "fuck europe as long as we get the good stuff" attitude displayed in this thread.
I'm enjoying it, because the same model is launching in the US soon.

Yeah we can, because Nintendo owns Sony's ass.  That never should have happened.

Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us." -SC

When you all buy as many games as we do, you can be appalled.

No, I'm quite certain he can be appalled about everything he likes without your consent, schild.

I'm also pretty sure we can express self-interest in our consumerism without having to justify ourselves as well.

Nobody doubts that you can express self-interest or wants to deny you that. In this case it isn't self-interest though, but shortsightedness or stupidity. If you really think those changes made in Europe will not come to the US I've got a few bridges I like to sell you.

Aren't we already at that point?

The 40 GB PS3 model will have no backwards compatibility at all (including software). Still no confirmation on whether or not the 40 GB verison for $400 is coming to the US, but I'm thinking it's very likely. The 60 GB version for Europe and 80 GB version for the US only had the PS2 graphics chip, so was using software emulation for the PS2, and all PS1 emulation was software.

I just can't help but think this is a fantastic fuckup.

I could swear there is confirmation from every source but Sony.  Sony isn't even just fucking up, they are fucking up and outright lying and backpedaling on almost everything. 

It's like the N Gage only on a much more vast scale.  (And with no visible worthwhile games to at least put it in the Saturn/Dreamcast camp of niche machines worth it for a couple titles.)

Their upper-level management is just awful, they change their marketing message every 5 minutes. "Rumble sucks -- err wait no, here have a rumble controller!" "Motion controls are a gimm-- err no, check out our motion controls!" "PS2 compatibility is in, err no it's software emu, err now it's out entirely!"

The fuck? What is going on here?

A great example of arrogance. Clearly they thought they could put out any system at any price and it would be a winner just by virtue of ZOMG PLAYSTATION!!! I have a longstanding hatred of MS but even I have to admit now that MS simply offers the better system. (If you can deal with returning it every 2 months lol)

Exact same thing Nintendo did to lose out to Sony.
