Retailer Amazon.com this week restocked Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 following limited availability of the product due to strong demand.

Sorry i can't understand words like Wit and Kuz Is it still one per customer though?
what does u, kuz and wit mean?
wit is with....
Dude LEARN English first, ok
yeah, shipments where getting sent at the end of this week, we will finally be getting some tuesday. And yes, amazon is only one per customer, if it was not I would buy 30 right now.
I ordered mine from Amazon 2 days ago but it hasn't shipped yet! I'm hoping I get the new model. People who recently purchased it there are getting mixed shipments, old and new models.
Sony, you Better start making PS3s 24hs non-stop cos Demand Will Be freaking Huge
Like I said, the demand of PS3's will increase massively after E3.
And as soon as GT5 is announced/released..
decrease massively on an impending launch of PSP2 (which is rumored to use a 4spu Cell)
Why would PS3 demand be affected by a PSP2 announcement? That's very unlikely.
He goes by the tag Cueil!
SONY manages to beat the 360 before the end of the year.. it would be awesome
I think Sony is planning on releasing new bundles after E3 and are limited the supply so they can build it all up for those bundles.
i bet the 40n models will spring out after E3 or gamescom like around september
Cell 45nm & RSX 40nm you mean
I thought they were already spotted in the wild. There might be a new bundle or two, but this new shipment's probably it. I'm guessing this is Sony's attempt at trying to meet the demand, which I'm sure they'll fail at again. More shortages to come, especially after E3.
I bought my MINT PS3 250GB Slim off of eBay from a genuine seller for £220.00! :P Good look on finding one though guys, Such an Amazing machine.. so very quiet. It beats my Xbox 360 Elite 120GB (Falcon) in every single way. :)
I bought my PS3 Slim from SonyStyle, right before the backorders. I felt lucky. Good luck to everyone else. Damn. I just rechecked SonyStyle, they are no longer selling PS3s. Wow. http://www.sonystyle.com/we... That's demand for you.
i just bought another slim after the bestbuy restock in april. i have 2 slims and my og 60gb which is starting to freeze up unfortunatly.
SONY HURRRY UPº TNE MANUFACTURING!
Sony is gonna keep building up Demand up until the release of GT5. That's when they'll fully restock world wide and that when Ps3 sales will explode. Either that, or they're waiting for the release of PS Move.
but it sounds a bit risky to sacrifice sales and stock to build demand, but hey! they know what they are doing! (i hope)
I'm am going to miss out on the PS3 Slim bundle with Move, I can't wait to get a new PS3 (Sold old one to help on bills), plus I will be putting 1TB in it. I already have a 360 an my gf has the Wii.
Hey sony, do want to win this gen or what? Break out the whips and start building.
they are already winning. Sony aren't worried. it should be Microsoft
Man in my store we been out of PS3's since Xmas time. The only ones we even got restocked is the 250GB only 4 and it takes them like every 3 or maby a month to get in the store. I'm guessing SONY is making room for their newer more slimmer models haven't yet find out what date the newer models will be fully stocked to all retailers/game stores.
Stop making it 'EASY' for Micro$oft and Nintendo!!! MAKE MORE!!! ;)
How so? PS3 sells are up by 48, 360's is down by 49 and the Wii is staying at 50. Seems like good numbers to me, heck that was on Yahoo's front page on news.
How Convenient, we hear about how their is a shortage, then they get restocked...lol Same old Sony. As for after E3, I am thinking there is going to be a slew of people wanting in on a slim 360 and Natal bundled for $250. So those should do well.
where's the source, or are you in lala land =P *looks at comment history* oh you are in 360 land...cut down on the shrooms
That dood's on crack!
I work for bestbuy, and we have been out of ps3's for a long time, every time we get them in, people buy them up. Definitely a shortage since they get sold so fast. We are always being asked if we have ps3's but they are always sold out.
Sounds like a nice deal, but, first off, it's a rumor: probably a made up one at that. Second, I already have a 360. I don't need a slim. Maybe when it breaks down, but I doubt it. I'll probably pick up Natal separately. Provided it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
You must be slow or something. Let me make it clear. There have been shortages for the last few months. These new shipments appear to be the newer model that was just released. People have been confirming Amazon to be shipping the newer model. Prior to the new model shipment, Amazon didn't have them available, along with any other major online retailer or even any local stores for that matter.
Switching production lines isn't something that happens overnight or even several weeks. The 40nm RSX PS3 Slim is a new SKU. If you look at the motherboard, it is not just a simple swapping out of the RSX. The fan has been redesigned (smaller), the power supply has been redesigned (smaller), several discretes have been integrated, the motherboard was relaid out. The shortage has been phasing out the old CECH-20XX SKU (they essentially sold out) while ramping up the production of the CECH-21XX SKU. It took a couple of months for that transition. The new SKU showed up in Japan first a few weeks ago but it is now showing up in the US. There have been several other places besides Amazon they have started showing up. There should be a lot more in stock after E3, a prime time for them to show up in large quantities.
Get it ON, SONY!! With your BAD AZZ SELF! The turtle(PS3) is catching up with rabbit(x360) dispite it's year head start.
its hare and tortoise over here....but yeah..Its how it looks
Where are these shortages at? I have never walked into a any store around where I live and not see a PS3 in stock.
Then here's a couple of possibilities. 1.The last time you left your house and you walked into a store was months ago. 2.The people in your area are broke and can't afford PS3's. 3.You walked into a store recently that miraculously got a fresh shipment. 4.You're lying to make it seem like the shortages are exaggerated. I can tell you that these shortages aren't exaggerated. I have been on the hunt for a slim for the last month and have found absolutely nothing. I live in California and searched a bunch of cities outside of my area, with no luck. I've resorted to online stores...but due to the convenience of ordering online it's been even more difficult to purchase through an online retailer. It looks like I might finally get one from Amazon though.
