London is a Wii60 town
I’m a huge diggnation fan, and while the boys were in London they were talking about the Halo3 release. When only a few hands shot up after they asked to see who had bought Halo, Kevin Rose asked the crowd “what’s up with that, is this a PS3 town?” The crowd, believe it or not, answered with a loud chorus of boos. Hell I knew Sony wasn’t doing too well in Europe, but the amount of vitriol in those boos was not something to sneeze at.
When asked further if they liked the Wii the crowd responded much more positively, with similar results for the 360. I don’t know about Sony, but when a huge crowd of 20-something technophiles shits on your product outright, it may be time to reconsider your European strategy.
