Play station 3 hits the EU market. It trails the sales of other rivals, but will perhaps catch up with them with this launch. "At the London launch everyone who bought a PS3 also received a free 46-inch HD television and a taxi home."
This whole game craze is very interesting phenomenon. It goes beyond age and Gender, and geography no longer is a divisive cultural factor. People across the world equally like these games (I just stay away from temptation not to ruin my life).
I see a very interesting connection here. In our ancestry line we diverged from the common ancestor with the great apes, we developed into a higher primate species whose main characteristics was impatience and was easily board.
We have come a long way to become the apes of the electronic age, or perhaps god just created us with a game boy attached to us...
