"Sony's new PS3 Slim model has been a big success. So big in fact, that the company could face worldwide shortages on the same scale as 'Nintendo Wii mania' from a couple of years back. A number of market conditions are converging to create what could be the perfect storm for PS3 sales this winter, with many customers in the USA and Europe potentially left empty handed and disappointed. In order to avoid disappointment and to ensure that there really is a Playstation 3 under the tree for friends or family this year, we recommend ordering soon to avoid the rush."
