Following the publication of NPD figures which show a small rise in PlayStation 3 sales, SCEA has said the European launch of the console has constrained supplies in North America.
i can still go anywhere and get one
That is pretty much a fact, the only people disgreeing are sony fanboys, in UK you can pick these up by the dozen. Some shops i went to in the UK refused to stock PS3 games due to low demand.
Its usual PR talk that would make headlines in some bigshot newspaper, while technically true the Europian launch would reduce US shipments, most if not all US stores have them in stock already so it wasnt an issue. The Wii on the other hand is a totally different story, i bet you some guy is stock piling a pile of wiis in some warehouse somewhere. I have yet to even find a demo unit at best buy.
Euro PS3 launch causing stock issues in US, says Sony = Oh my, Id better get out and buy one before they are all gone.
What a complete load of PR BULLSHXT!!!!!!!!
There available everywhere and I mean everywhere and just sitting, collecting dust.
why do all these inbreds comment on PS3 news when they dont have one?
you broke the chain.. i was trying to figure out for how long this rubbish line of comments will go on! q: now let me see - 1,2,3,4 trolls! and wow! the first ones hates his own reflection. my my my... life must be really tough for him q:
lol pr tards
There are alot of PS3's in Europe and here in the UK though. I went to this town and they got quite alot in stock, its the price and lack of amazing games keeping people away from buying the PS3 at the moment. I also don't believe this PR crap.
no arguing with that
Seriously, I haven't sold a PS3 at my store in 2 weeks...we're still sitting on the same two-dozen or so that we've had for nearly a month.
Just one example from one store in one large city. Don't flame me; I'm only stating what I'm seeing.
If there are supply constraints, they're not affecting us.
It's funny how someone disagreed with you... It's like fanboys are blind to any facts.
People love these consoles, and as soon as they reach the stores, oh boy they sell out! It's a surprise I don't see people lined up to get these bad boys, because as soon as they arrive to my local BestBuy, people crowd around and fight to get one. $600 is a steal. People love the machine, the product, the offerings and the online. Sony really has something with this. I mean you see 360's and wiis everywhere, but these things are built to get sold. I mean I've never seen one on the shelves for over an hour, because as soon as they are off the truck people crowd around in hopes to grab one. Unfortunately, some can't get 1 due to the limited supply. Hopefully supply will increase so we can all get one!
I would love to have some of what you're on.
Or is this another one of those "myPSP" things where Sony's hired somebody?
Creeps me out even thinking about that.
There are PS3's in every store.
Plenty of them.
Nobody is fighting for a PS3, and you say 360's and Wii's are everywhere? 360 yes, Wii, no, they are still hard to find.

Ahhhhhhhh people don't get sarcasm! Damn...that has to be the fifth time people have fallen into the sarcasm trap. grrr
**edit** looking at this guys past posts...this seems that he is indeed deluded lol classic
He was obviously being sarcastic, i don't know why some people can't notice blantant sarcasm
Im a fan but this is going a little to far, sony really needs to talk to their PR people about this, if Itrackr states there is around 93% PS3 aviable in the US I dont see anything showing there is a supply shortage or whatever. Nintendo is the only one having the supply shortages and still manages to outsell the othe guys. And you can tell sony PR is lying because they had those 1 million PS3's ready for the EU way before march, so I dont see how it still affected the March sales here in the US.
Maybe this PR guy works also for Nintendo and got the consoles all screw up... As far as I am concern only the wii is having demand problems.
I think you might have misspoke...the Wii has significant demand; it's supply they're having problems with.
Does anyone know why?
to have 30 units in stock to be in stock lol
Who's going to break the chain in all the 360 threads?.
did you just post in a PS3 thread?
Anyway...are they talking store stock, or supply chain stock? With all the various stages between manufacture and POS, it takes a while for things to trickle through. Oh well...still haven't seen the mythical Wii anywhere. I'd love to get one for the wife, but I'm starting to think it doesn't really exist.
i'm disappointed with ya! a bit late you have come, i can see. please don't tell me you were booking your 'elite' machine!
By now those ps3 should have sold out - but still in stock and thats that.
If they are over here they would be NTSC, so if they are getting sent here from the other stock wouldnt they be PAL consoles? Sounds like they just got busted in another lie!
Either way, no need to ship them to the US, we have plenty over here.
Europe on the other hand is running out. About 15% left of the original million that was shipped to Europe.
no wii's at all and 2 360's
im in uk !
so if there running low in usa we can send some over if you want !
This is PR BS dude everywhere you go in the US i dont think a single place has sold out since launch...i work at a Gamestop and they've in my sore as well the other stores in my district forever...if it was doin so well here and we were running out GS wouldnt need to 100 dollars off trade deals
how is having PS3 in stock a bad thing?
sony had many issue with stock at launch and seeing them on retail shelves is a good sign meaning that production is on track...
PS3 launch has broken records - and its at like what 3 million in 4-5 months - thats crazy! xbox360 was out for a whole year and the PS3 launch in japen pasted it in one day hahahaha
the Wii is out selling because its sooo cheap i could [email protected][email protected]
PS3 continues to slowly move upward and the true war will start at the end of the year - even bill [email protected]
just remember that xbox had a 1 year headstart & their only roughly 6million units ahead of PS3...and if u ppl dont know a future proof console like the PS3..then i wouldnt want u having one any1 - thats all i need is to be online playing vs stup][d fangirls like urselfs
well, that's great, you can focus on how great it's doing in japan, and the rest of us will keep track of how the 360 is outselling the ps3 in every other major country...plus, the ps3 is also limping in japan so it's not exactly selling millions there, like sony was banking on....the ps3 is looking in it's rearview mirror, but the problem is that everyone already passed it up lol hahahahahaha plus,. the ps3 can't even outsell it's older last-gen ps2 lol WHAT A JOKE!!!
what would you say in his place?
just think. =)
If you really believe this , rethink your life. These are outright lies. Oh , Sony :(
DrRage77 are u seriously that brain dead?
how is it justified and fair to compare a system that has been out for a year& couple months vs a system which has been out for 5 months????
please make me explain how this shows that the future of the PS3 is doomed?
if u want to look at it that way lets compare the xbox360 vs the PS2 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
xbox 9million sold
PS2 1billion hahahaha
i hope u see my point and think b4 your next post - because u just make urself look like a dumb xboxfan girl
you just made urself look like a dumb sonyfan girl mate, also funny you can only say ps2 when its the ps3 that should be blowing everyone away
