PS3 Launch: News Corporation vs Fairfax

It's interesting to see the difference in the way that News Corporation and Fairfax Media reported on the PS3 launch last week.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

The launch of Sony's PlayStation 3 games console got off to a feeble start last night with officials, media and security outnumbering customers for most of the evening.

The Australian IT section, in contrast, makes no mention of a poor turnout - simply saying that:

GAMERS queued outside retail stores across Australia to buy Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3) from the stroke of midnight.
