European PlayStation 3 Network: It's Alive!
Posted by XanTium | 20-3-2007 14:21 EST
According to a series of postings on a Neogaf forum, the European PlayStation 3 Network (and Store) is reachable and downloads were available today - some three days before the consumer launch of the PS3 itself.
The initial posting, appears to come from a Belgian user called Goldrusher and includes the picture shown on the right of this story. The on-screen text is very obviously not in either American English nor Japanese (nor any version of Chinese that might be spoken in Singapore that we're aware of). In short, it's either a well-mocked-up European screen, or a true European screen.
Our unnamed source at Sony commented, "As far as we're concerned it won't go live until launch. And that's got to be a debug machine not retail. We're probably just testing the network."
Note: the language on the screenshot is dutch
