PS3 sells 78,000 in 48 hours in France
//The PS3 broke the French Wii record of 75,000 units sold in the first 48 hours, and they also broke the Xbox 360 launch sales which sold 49,000 units.
In the Benelux (for the people who don't know that's The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg combined), Sony sold 80% of their 54,000 units which were available on the launch day. //
