        More than a million consoles were shipped across Europe on launch day last week with 600,000 sold.


        Sony is hoping to retake its title as the console market leader, as Microsoft and Nintendo head the next-gen race.


        Meanwhile, games firm Namco Bandai has said it is to use the PS3's Cell chip in arcade machines. <!- E SF ->


        Microsoft sold 71,000 Xbox 360 consoles during its UK launch weekend, while Nintendo sold 105,000 Wii machines.


        But both companies offered limited stock to retailers, which led to shortages.


        Ray Maguire, managing director of Sony Computer Entertainment UK said the figures were a vote of confidence in the machine.


        "Having broken the record for launch sales, we are now replenishing retail stock across the country," he said,


        The first arcade title to use the PS3 microprocessor will be fighting game Tekken 6, Namco said.


        While PlayStation technology has been used in arcade machines in the past it is believed to be the first time that the Cell will be used for games not running on Sony's console.


        Namco Bandai has sold its PlayStation 2 arcade technology to other firms, but it is still undecided about whether to sell its PS3 Cell-based technology, a spokeswoman for the firm said. </TD></TR></T></T></TABLE>

          I'm sure its a beast of a system but i couldnt justify spending that much on a gaming system. Had a look at the display model on toys r us and wasnt as impressed as i was expecting, in the games there was still pixelation on the side of a players arms and stuff like that. I was expecting a huge leap forward graphically for all the talk about the machine and what i saw didnt necessarily show it.

                It generally takes a while for the people who make the games to be able to get the best out of the console. The first batch of games shouldn't be used to judge the console. Having said that if the games are all pants there's no reason to buy one at the moment. And 630 yoyos is pretty much a joke. Especially when it only costs $600 in the US.

                    Ok if anyone hasnt downloaded 2.40, dont do it. It freezes the console and you would have to reformat your HDD!!
