According to a posted interview with a "Sony Inside Man," there will be a new shipment of PS3 units coming to stores within a week or so
Looks like there might be a scintilla of truth to this. When I called my EB games where I have a "60" reserved, the manager seemed a little more than confident that I should have my unit by Friday 24th, since I'm next in line. Either way I'm happy since I've got my 20 already, but the 60 is what I really want to check out up close and personal. =]
They've made up enough stories upto now.
This launch has been planned for how long? And there going to ship such a limited amount, numbers actually being quoted of less than 400,000 and "NOW" there supposedly going to be shipping more in 1 week, not true, unless that next shipment is like 3 unit's.
No company holds back when there already looking bad in the public eye for it. I'll guess that 1 more shipment will go out to each major retailer before xmas, if sony's smart that is.
But this supposed quote from a so called sony insider stuff needs to stop, it's alway's lies, whether it's a supposed Microsoft, sony or nintendo guy, c'mon people, stop the supposed inside guy articles, please!!
what a fanboy, their gonna ship 4, not 3
so in your face
It's not a joke and I have thought about it.
As a matter of fact I factually typed what was said between myself and the manger at EBGames, today. You MS fans are unbelievable. But I must give you all credit. News4Gamers has the most elite PlayStation and Sony haters on the Planet. Don't you guys ever meet in a room and just salivate over fps's all day?
When are you guys gonna give it up? I could care less what Sony says. It's a huge company bringing brand new technology to the forefront at a loss to their bottom line. I just wanna play their machine and have a boatload of fun like I always have on playstations. Hell, I've already got my 20gigger, so the 60 will just be icing on the cake.
Are you a PS3 owner or potential owner? I doubt either. If not -- why on God's green earth would you give a rat's a$$ about this article / thread?
the Deftones are right -- There's a hole in the Earth.
I mean for all, all systems, not just sony. Also, the only way you'd get one next week is if the shipment came from Ebgames warehouse that's holding them, but unless you get a sony official statement saying this, then don't believe it.
Also, these guys at stores like EB aren't video insiders, they know basically what it say's online, just like you and I do. There games, and system's come straight from the manufacturer and not a warehouse so they get it when they get it. They do seem to get them earlier though than others which is why I strictly use them but they know nothing more.
XGamer do you intentionally dismiss anything that could possibly be concidered as logic? Then again if you had any idea of videogame history an the way things work you would never have made such a clearly insane statment. Sony ships a shipment of units every week. (PS2, PSP and now PS3) this isn't wishful thinking it's a fact.
Try to think for yourself not because you hate Sony that doesn't give you an excuse to make silly statments.
That's true on how console's are shipped but not during lauch. Launch qty's aren't plentiful and as everyone knows of sony's woe's in this area, so no, there wont be weekly shipments made.
But, good luck with that fantasy. Wii on the other hand will be plentiful and so are there lauch gaming titles.
what exactly is their definition of "or so..."?
I smell damage control.
I was told a future shipment in 2-3 weeks, and that was the last they were expecting. And that makes sense to me.
Sony is flying these things in, not shipping them. They need to send a lot of them to be cost effective, and so that there's less sporadic results. Really the same thing happened with the 360, so I'm not sure why you're tearing into Xgamer.
It Is true. I work and a Canadian Best Buy, and we have 11/23/06 as our next Sony shipment coming into the store, and the among the list of new TV's and camcorders and all that stuff, says:
Hardware: PlayStation 3 Console
60GB/20GB (1/3) - (5/15)
What that basically says is that we are expecting some sort of PS3 consoles directly from Sony on Thursday, and the (1/3) means that 1 3rd of the systems wil be 20GB and the other 2 3rd = 60GB. So 15 - 60GB Consoles, and 5 20GB consoles. So maybe this isnt the case for all stores across all of North America, im just letting you ppl know that Best Buy Stores all across Canada should be getting some on Thursday the 23rd.
There's no reason to doubt their intentions or ability to do so.
but plenty of reason to doubt their ability.
What he said.
that there is going to be another shipment next week sometime, because I reserved one at gamestop. I was #10 on the list and didnt receive a console on launch and i talked to a gamestop manager and told me that they are getting another shipment next week sometime, didnt know what day of the week, but pretty sure its going to happen. It worked out cool for me because I just moved 2months ago and I am getting a HD TV the same week. Hope the second shipment fix the minor glitches on the ps3....
it's called riot control. they tell the customer bad news, but sugar coat it to keep people from getting pissed. they don't know for sure when they will get them. they just know what they are told by sony. just like when ms told gamestop they would have a lot more. at my store we took 131 reserves for the 360. they told us we would get enough at launch to cover 1st wave(about 21) and half of the rest. we ended up getting 28 at launch, which they told us 3 days prior to. the problem with shortages is sony won't know about them til they happen. you don't plan on defects, they just happen. most stores will be lucky to get a single shipment before christmas. sony isn't going to not ship them because they want to, they might not have a choice.
After everything that we have seen over the past 48 hours to hold consoles back just to ship one week latter is idiotic. If this is true Sony is truly the dumbest company on Earth and obviously does not care for it's dedicated fans. If they did they would have put all console to the launch so the thousands waiting would not go home empty handed after all that waiting. The earliest we should see a shipment should be the mid December, anything earlier and it should have been made part of the launch or it will be a very small amount based on their production rate so far.
Your tone implies that Sony is intentionally shipping less units to create a frenzy. This is only hurting Sony not helping it. They are putting together the system and flying them here as fast as possible to meet demand. Please stop sounding like an idiot, it hurts me.
"But I must give you all credit. News4Gamers has the most elite PlayStation and Sony haters on the Planet. Don't you guys ever meet in a room and just salivate over fps's all day? "
