UK:RESISTANCE 'main page'
We got an email. It was nicely written, about no one buying PS3 and included an accompanying image.

This is the accompanying image:

PS3 - cruising to 93rd

It shows PS3 languishing in 93rd place on Amazon's sales chart. We probably don't need to once again point out this is because it's shit and too much money.

Thought you might be amused to see that the PS3 is currently placed at number 93 in Amazon US's top-selling Video Games list thingy, meaning that outselling it in 90th is Crazy Machines: The Wacky Contraptions Game on the PC and Mac, by the fine people at Viva Media.

Apparently "Crazy Machines gives you the chance to build your own unique contraptions. Solve more than 200 challenging puzzles, and put your machines to work". I must admit, my slacks did begin to bulge somewhat while copying and pasting that, and already I'm more excited about Crazy Machines: The Wacky Contraptions Game than I am about that PS3 thing.

Other items currently selling more than the PS3 include:

- Cooking Mama on DS
- Karaoke Revolution Party on PS2
- Game Boy Advance SP Pearl Blue (yes, a GBA)
- Mario Kart Double Dash on GameCube (yes, a game on a "dead" console)
- Final Fantasy VIII on PSone (yes, PSone)
- Brain Training on DS (even though everyone has it now)

It would also appear that the window Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly leant from when
allegedly shooting JFK was also sold on eBay but the offer was then withdrawn:

...but the fact that someone at some point offered money for it means that it's technically sold more than the PS3 as well. And I bought a copy of Joe Montana's Sports Talk Football 93 on the Mega Drive for £1.99 out of Gamestation the other day, so I reckon that means it's now selling more than the PS3 too.

This was a great email. The only 'downer' is that the accompanying image was a 150k jpeg, which is a bit big so needed resizing. For future reference, web pages are best screen capped, then cropped to 500 pixels wide, then exported as a gif from a pirated version of Photoshop. Had that been done this email would've got 10/10. 9/10.

A web restirictive gif or a 128 / 64 / 32 dithered / undithered gif?

Sloppy journalism. 3/10

I use PNGs because it makes me feel superior. Everyone knows that file extensions with a vowel in them are shit.
Blogger Aran said...
PNGs do rule. But are they PiNGs or PoNGs?

They're PNeumoniaGs.

PNG's are great but animated gifs are the most useful thing since export for web.

Oh god kill me now.

My brother pronounces it 'punge'.

Blogger jawa said...
maybe you could punge him in the head. hahahaha. death please.
Blogger Saphion said...
I did stamp on his foot the first time he said it, mind. Hard.

Serves him right for being a twat really.

The PS3 is out of stock at and has been since launch, hence the position in the rankings. If you check the used prices, they're massively higher than RRP, this is because it's so hard to find a PS3 in most shops.
