Sony's PlayStation 3 has finally launched in Australia. Though a few months late, Sony reportedly have quite a few preorders
, so they're pretty excited about it.
However, The Age are reporting
that not many other people are, in a less-than-glowing article about the official midnight launch last night at Myer in Sydney (featuring Sony and Myer bosses):
At midnight, about 40 PS3 buyers had arrived to collect their consoles, causing distress for the army of camera crews who turned up expecting to capture launch mayhem.
Desperate producers unashamedly asked the crowd to fake excitement when the cameras were rolling, while a team from 2Day FM let out bogus cheers to convince their radio listeners that a launch extravaganza was underway.
