CompUSA is completely sold out on all PLAYSTATION 3 Consoles. There is not a single PLAYSTATION 3 console available for purchase from the CompUSA website nor any of the 103 retail stores across the United States and Puerto Rico.
just another testament to the ps3 making a comeback
a testament would be ps3 sales steadly increasing at the 600 dollar price tag, not lowering the price after 7-8 months then a week later kaz announcing the 60 gig will be phased out thats a clearance sale and will only sell so many units.
"ps3 sales steadly increasing at the 600 dollar price tag, not lowering the price after 7-8 months then a week later kaz announcing the 60 gig will be phased out thats a clearance sale and will only sell so many units" what makes you think the 80gb won`t go down to $499? cause, MARK my words, It will. and they will introduce a $399 version before Xmas. So SORRY to burst you bubble but, when the 60gb gone, the ps3 will never be $599 again. and w/ all the games coming out it will maintain where its at. PLAY BEYOND. @captain tuttle(16.1) No pressure, this is just how they do business. it`s wierd, but it works.
PS3 is definitely looking very tasty right about now =]
Open Box, but with a 2 year warranty in store. So I only get one bubble?
It's funny, the PofS3 only has a 3.8 out of 5 Star Customer Rating from only 26 reviews, where the Xbox 360 has a 4.6 out of 5 Star Customer Rating from a whopping 202 reviews. Even with the few problems with the 360 they are still showed more love, nice. Don't worry, theirs plenty of PofS 3s still in stock at other stores: http://www.ps3locator.com/ http://www.xpbargains.com/p... http://ps3finder.com/
yea we know already. If they sell well great, keeps MGS4 exclusive and all that. Plus more people get to try great games like heavenly sword and lair. Howver enough is enough. The ps3 is doing well and i think we have all gotten the message. Stuff like this should not make news
I must agree with Blankman. Nothing wrong with this kind of new, where you go all online store, chasing that ones that are out of stock on PS3 or any system you like, but even being "not wrong", it's boring. We all know that the pricecut had effect and the 60GB model is selling very well (Will phase out faster too? The BD sales will go up? Sony will come back and produce more 60GB? This ones could be more interesting news, if someone can get the word from the right peoples), just let the news come when Sony or the retailers have something to say on that, not more just "Out Of Stock".
Apparently there are 2 million 60 GB ....which would make it kinda wierd if it was sold out...if it did happen then that is crazy! Well i wanna see a confirmation from sony...or some really huge npd numbers.
"CompUSA is completely sold out" not the whole of the US
then I'll be blown away. Right now, they have PS3's aplenty there. Same is true at my local Walmart and Bestbuy. But hey, if they do sell all these PS3's it can't be anything but good news. And just wait till the 40 gig 399.99 sku drops. Sony will be right back on top (of MS anyway).
This is what the compusa site says: SOLD OUT for delivery In-Store Not Available In-Store
There a bunch of PS3 there. I counted 8-12 PS3 there in two windowed shelves. But Wii is still nowhere to be found. Seriously, if we have to make a new post for every place where Wii is sold out, we will be seeing a Wii post every other minute. But I got what I went there for, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! :D
Then, you won't mind if the Wal-mart, Gamestop, Best Buy, and Target by my house send you all 3,000 of their Wii's??? There was ONE PS3 at Gamestop the other day...and it sold in minutes. It's doing GREAT here, in Illinois. I don't know about other regions, but it's great here! The Wii's a joke. Can we all just admit it already? I got SOOOO freakin' bored with my Wii! I'm literally more excited for the WORST PS3 or 360 games...than for ANY Wii game. Nothing looks...innovative...or fun. I would also like a storyline, Nintendo! Is that too much to ask?
To LeonSKennedy4Life: Have you tried Super Paper Mario?
If you counted what is the exact number then (8 or 12)? Or did they have 8 in the store window and 12 in their video department?
There's more than 2 million 60gb PS3s. Sony said they shipped 5.5 million and they were still making 60GBs until E3. I'd say 2.5 million PS3s are still out there.
5.5 million shipped are the numbers from March this year, Sony probably shipped at least 6.5 - 7 million units to date.
Pleaseeeeee the ps3 isn't moving except where companies are taking a loss on sales as CompUSA did, and still they probably had some 100 units avail.online so that's not a big move. Relax. The Xbox 360 and especially the Wii have been sold out at many places, the Wii in fact is nowhere to be found. Some sony fan called the Wii a joke, well compared to true next gen. stats, yes, but even still this joke as you call it, is kicking your ps3's ass all over town.
That to date, at least 5.5 million Ps3's have been sold, coincidently the same numbers shipped in March. so they are selling very well, not just CompUSA is soldout you know.
i hope that they can maintain the momentum when they no longer make the 60 gig. if the drop the 80gig to 500 usd this christmas after the 60gig is all gone , and nolonger carry the motorstorm package then this will be good. but in all honesty they dont need the 600 bucks price tage. i hope and can only hope that they be smart and continue to sell at 500$ and by next year summer drop it to 400 bucks. in anycase they are doing well. good job sony for this period of time you have managed to pull your self out of the red and perhaps made better sales. how much though is left to be seen.
Circuit City, Best Buy, CompUSA, and Wal-Mart are all sold out in my area...not that I was checking...but I was in each of these stores pricing some computer equipment for work last week...and each had notices on the entrance that they were sold out of PS3's until next week for most places (Wal Mart didn't say)... A friend of mine just bought one at Gamestop though...so they are still around...the guy said they sold like 17 that day (the first day they went on sale there) though...but they probably have a huge overstock still...they weren't going anywhere there for like 2 months...
there just doing a bit better there is still no way it will win nintendo wii still has this console war
why do you need to bring up console wars for. it will only get spammed by fanbuys and stuff now. i just want one article without any competision and yes my english suck..
nintendo is winning its own console war. its not even a part of the one going on between sony and microsoft, nintendo has a completely different audience and a completely different assortment of games. its like saying ds is realy kicking the crap out of the ps2 right now in the console war. PS: ps3/wii/360 selling out isnt news.
I work at Bestbuy and we haven't seen a huge increase in sales of the PS3 we sale a average 2-3 a day we still have around mid 20's in back. My good friend works at the Circuit down the street from me and he said they have a bunch in stock. I love this site. I state a fact that where i work hasn't sold many Ps3 and my best friend at CCity hasn't either and someone disagrees. i didn't talk crap on PS3. Just stated a fact. So sad what ever fanboy that press disagree doesn't have the balls to say why.
then you might want to mention as many details about your story as possible. What city you work in, which console(s) do you own, etc?
im going on record saying that you are a door greeter at bestbuy like those old farts at wal mart, they dont allow door greeters in the back of the warehouse, the ps3 is gonna build momentum and surpass the 360 and the wii, bc the wii is a fad, i played zelda on it on day one, and havent seen that wii since, this is going to be a 10-12 year race, while the 360 already messed up by releasing early and boning all the early adopters , the ps3 might change the controller by adding rumble, thats about it, and not screw everyone who bought the system on day one like me, plus the xbox 360 came out and it had great games like what ? kameo? lolz. the first good game came out around march, like 5 months after release with oblivion, whereas the ps3 had resistance, and it dont get any better than that, if anybody wants play online, my id is destined2shine :)
I don't have to prove sh1t to you. I work in the computer department if you know a friend at a bestbuy tell me hes name ill look it up what department he works in and does. I'm thinking pacman615 is a kid that sits at home thinking the PS3 is gods gift to little boys that can't meet girls. It's ok one day you might outgrow being a fanboy.
the ps3 comeback is inevitable, like i said, after e3, ps3 wins, just look at this site, ps3 topics are more visited than every other platform, and it follows on all other sites aswell, so wheater you like it or not, ps3 is comming in full sail, and aint no storm on the sea to slow it down, get ready
I personally think Sony are being very clever regarding the price of the PS3. They can afford to drop the artificially overpriced PS3 down bit and everyone thinks they are getting a bargain! Then they release a PS3 with an extra 20Gb and charge the same as before. A stroke of genius! I do love my 360 but Sony are really starting to turn the heat up on the PS3 and I look forward to some great games on both systems. At the end of the day we gamers are the ultimate winners when companies scramble over our custom. Bring it on!
"I personally think Sony are being very clever regarding the price of the PS3. They can afford to drop the artificially overpriced PS3 down bit and everyone thinks they are getting a bargain!" oui oui
you might want to read the full articles before just replying like that, it will also come with rumble again too, and you know, people drop 2k-5k $ on a computer that wont even give them a hd format to play those games on, and for even 600$ the ps3 is a freakin deal , you have to know the tech to appreciate that bargain, :)~
Hell if I were in the higher ups at Sony I would just keep pushing those 60gigs out without telling anyone, they probably are. =P Just to make people think that they're running out.
