160GB PlayStation 3 Announced for Europe and North America

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced at Games Convention 2008 in Leipzig that the 160GB PLAYSTATION 3 will launch in October/November 2008 in the PAL markets as part of a bundle box including additional PLAYSTATION Network content. It will have the same features as the 80GB PAL PS3 except double the storage.

Other sources have also reported that there will be a 160GB PS3 for North America. This will include Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, PLAYSTATION Network Voucher for PAIN and a DUALSHOCK3 Wireless Controller.

This has come as a complete surprise as the new 80GB PAL PS3 is due to release this Friday (22nd August). Too bad I have already ordered my 80GB PS3. I might have waited for the 160GB version, but then they may have announced another one. You can always change the HDD to a higher capacity one on your own.

Spain dominated the final throughout, with Torres heading against the post and Marcos Senna within inches of adding a second after 80 minutes.

Michael Ballack came close for Germany, shooting narrowly wide after the break.

UEFA Euro 2008 Match Schedule and Scoresheet (Excel Spreadsheet) [Updated]

Euro 2008 LogoThe UEFA EURO 2008 starts on 7th June 2008 (tomorrow) and is going to be the biggest football event this year.

I tried looking on the official UEFA Euro 2008 website and could not find a Excel match schedule and scoresheet like the one from the World Cup 2006 website. So I have found you an unofficial Excel spreadsheet which you can use as a match schedule and scoresheet for the UEFA Euro 2008. All the dates and times should be correct when you adjust them for your time zone.

This template is equipped with formulae that will automatically calculate the group standings of each team, based on Euro 2008 match regulations. When all group matches have been played, the template will automatically put each group winner and runner up in the template and you just simply put the score in the correct score cells. The formula will continue to work until the champion is revealed.
