Microsoft crashes Euro PS3 launch day

The first bit of mischief from the Xbox 360 house went down at the Midnight PS3 launch in Paris, where a bigXbox 360-branded boat sailed passed queuinggamers with the message "Xbox 360 heart you." We don't know what it means either, but we're sure the cold Frenchgamers got the message.

An hour later (thanks to the wonders of time zones) more naughty pranksters descended on the official London launch event at Virgin Megastore Oxford Street. As you can imagine the chilly London weather isn't ideal for a street campout, but luckily some friendly chaps were on hand giving outfree camping chairs.

Further investigation revealed the chairs were branded with the message "Shouldn't have kept you waiting" and the internet URL We'll let you check that site out yourself to discover who the mischievous do-gooders really were.
