+ - France PS3 Launch Event A Flop

Submitted by yannack
yannack (846999) writes "Sony's PS3 launch event in Paris last night was a flop (French link, with videos). The opening of the FNAC (major French distributor) at 00:01 a.m. was nowhere overwhelmed by the hundred of PS3 buyers as it was expecting a crowd of around 3,000 (similar figures were observed for the PS2 debut). As for the other event at the Eiffel Tower, it had the unexpected visit of a boat spanning XBOX-360 logos !
After Sir Howard Stringer (Sony CEO) openly admitted yesterday that the PS3 might fail due to excessive price (Engadget), are Sony executives about to see a major set-back in their PS3 plans?"
