Sony finally launched its PlayStation Portable handheld console in Europe for 249EUR of 178.99 pounds.
The European launch was delayed for months because Sony needed enough supply for the United States and now dozens of people are queuing in front of shops to finally get their hands on the PSP.
There are only 1 million PSPs available today but Sony plans to ship 13 million more PSPs in the year to next March.
Recently Sony launched a new firmware update for the PSP in Japan and the US which adds new features like an official web browser but the European models won't be equipped with firmware 2.0 yet. But they do come shipped with a disc that enables users to upgrade their devices themselves.
