PlayStation3 launches in South Korea – 50 people are very happy about that today
Sony launched its PlayStation3 console in South Korea over the weekend, hoping that the land of lunatic (“100 hours or DEATH!”) online RPG fans might take to its not-exactly-popular-anywhere-else new games system.
“Around 50” gamers queued for a PS3 in Seoul on launch morning, with Sony Asia boss Tetsuhiko Yasuda hoping that “PlayStation 3’s power and South Korea’s Internet infrastructures” somehow magically come together to make the console a success. Even though it still hasn’t got more than two must-have games.
The S. Korean PS3 is the 80GB model, and it weighs in at 518,000 South Korean “won” – which is about £263. So that’s another country paying less for its PS3s than us.
