Submission Xbox 360 boat at the PS3 launch event in Paris

snark writes: Yesterday, for the European launch of their Playstation 3, Sony held a party near the Eifel tower. Due to the cold and the huge price of the console in Europe, it was quite a flop as few people came to buy the PS3. The event (to which I didn't take part) was reported to be very badly organised by Sony.

The funniest moment of the evening was this boat passing by the Seine river, just next the temporary shop Sony built for the occasion. This was a boat promoting the XBox 360 from Microsoft, with a huge "XBox 360 loves you" message on the side.

You can see the boat in this video (French commentaries), at around 2/3 of the video: ps3-video-34234.html
