Best Buy this week sold out of Sony Corp.'s 60GB Playstation 3 product and disclaimed limited in-store availability through the company's online division.
thats interesting... i just went to the santa rosa best buy last night.. and it had a huge stack of 60 GB.. also a huge stack of 80 gb models.. also a huge stack of 360 premiums, also a huge stack of halo edition 360s.. you can tell its shopping season.
you can always find some stores who have huge pile of x360s and ps3s.
However wii is sold out in most places.
same goes to Europe. You can always find huge pile of UNSOLD x360s all over and some ps3s too but wii is sold out all over
oh yeah.. forgot to mention that.. with the piles upon piles of ps3s and xboxs.. they didnt have one wii.. they said either today or tommorrow should be gettin in a shipment, just might have to invest in a couple before the holiday rush, maybe presents will be free this year.
not even gonna try and hide it but....I saw a stack of those Halo 3 edition 360's. I was real close to picking one of those up and I don't even like Halo.
WOW! Good job on the new account, nasim (shmee). Even with a new identity you still CANNOT hide your bias. How weak.
even with a new name u cannot hide your bias.
How weak that an XBOT like you is shivering after x360s dismal performances in EU and JAPAN
tides will turn too once the 40 gig hits NA
'same goes to Europe. You can always find huge pile of UNSOLD x360s all over and some ps3s too but wii is sold out all over '
WTF you on about. Do you live in Europe? Basically whereever you go you can buy wii's, theres not one shop which sells them which is sold out. It has been like this since March over here
If there's anyone with some sense on this site, just bring nasim's bubbles down. Please.
Shmee always talks good about EU because the PS3 is doing good there. I can say the same for here. I work at Bestbuy part time and we have all our PS3's locked up in back. They sale but not great. While the same time we have stacks of 360's which are really moving. And of course the Wii is gone..
60gb sold out in various of bayarea store. some of the frys store has 80gb sold out too.. Amazon 60gb is officially history and 80gb sold out ans restock last week. Wonder what's going on over there.
Sony said they had ample supply that would last at least 2-3 months. I love how little kids rewrite history to suit their needs.
of BC the 40gb does not have it and once the 60gb are gone they are gone. Thats why I got mine, don't want to have a machine I can't run the old games on.
I remember Sony saying that all 60 gig versions should of been sold out by July of this year when they dropped the price. It's only been 4 months later..lol and still yet to do so.
this is why 60gig didnt sell out then.
HS /WARHAWK and LAIR are good but not stellar
with R$C and UNCHARTED ps3 has now AAA games to its names and so the hype for the console has been rekindled
with 400$ ps3 SONY can have a wider reach in NA as well since casual gamers want wii/ps3 but were driven off by the hefty price tag of ps3.
However in EU ps3 did phenomenal at a very high price point.Now with a price drop expect 2 m ps3s to be sold in EU alone this XMAS.
ps3 will beat wii in EU and trail wii in NA by small margins this XMAS in NA
in JAPAN too 40gig ps3 could see ps3 HW above wii in XMAS and tides could fully change since Japanese gamers were driven by JUST the price tag of the ps3
1 they only give you one game or a controller and you have just a few game options to choose from
2 best buy no free shipping
i got my ps3 60gb yes i did from wal mart they have the better offer right now they give you a ps3 60gb for 499 free shipping and best of all 1 free game that you choose from a big list of games i got warhowk with bluetooth head set and they give you for free the blu ray control remote for free 2 wich the games is $60 and the remote control is $25 thats $85

Is it really news every time one store sells out of a console? If this is so, the Wii should be in the news every single day. Plus, I just went to target, GameStop, and BestBuy yesterday (their all in the same alotment) and each had HUGE stacks of PS3s but had one or two Wiis. This is not news!
at my place there is a lot of wii..epecially at my target and walmart..dont get me wrong its still selling but not out in quick rate. the hype die out for it..
Xbox 360: hardware to software ratio: 6.59 (hardware total sold = 6.8 million; software total sold = 44.8 million)
PlayStation 3: hardware to software ratio: 3.58 (hardware total sold = 1.9 million; software total sold = 6.8 million)
Wii: hardware to software ratio: 3.44 (hardware total sold = 4.5 million; software total sold = 15.5 million)
not surprise . xmas is coming..i hope the 40gb will be sold out when it release
some still have the 60gig PS3, which I thought was suppose to be gone a while back.
I walked into a Gamestop and this mom was asking about buying a PS3 for her son, and the clerk said that she should wait since the 40 gig PS3 is coming out soon and should be cheaper. What she didn't know is that it will not be able to play his PS2 games, since she is still buying PS2 games for him.
That's gonna stink for many parents that are unaware, besides seeing a favorable price for the 40gig PS3.
If everything goes right, I just got a 1080p Samsung 4671f TV, and this guy is selling me his 60gig PS3, 4 games, 2 controllers for $400. I can't past that offer since I do not want the inferior models 80-40gigs. Them 60 gigs are becoming scarce. It's forcing me to buy one now then later.
I should have a PS3 by friday then the Tri-Force will be completed this gen.
Currently have a Black
MS Xbox 360
with one White sheep, Nintendo Wii(I knew you were always different).
If anyone don't like the feeling of patch after patch to play their PS2 library then get that 60gig PS3 now before they go.
Oh how I love the FACT that the 360 is a plastic hunk of shiet, and I didn't spend a dime on it.....AHAHHAHAHA
HD-DVD for the win.......NAT!!!......Morons.. ..AAHHAAHAH
Gates for Prez! NAT! HAHAHAHA
Most best buys are out of this model. I think one has couple left. They are waiting for the 40 GB I think to come into stock.
Strangely I actually see Wiis here lined up alot. I mean its not doing bad or anything but nothing like what some people have described either.
is a better option for gamers who want BC, i wonder, will sony stop production of the 60gb ps3?
Ohkay...Gamestop's getting maybe 2 Wii's every week or so now. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of!
It's officially gone at my store...sold the last one Sunday. The 80 GB model has been scarce of late...prepping for the 40GB models? (Our 40s are already in stock).
PS3 sales have improved at my store, but the Wii and 360 are by far the hottest systems...360 Elites are nigh impossible to find in my entire district right now.
(Don't flame me...these are the stats from one store in one state. Just noting what I'm seeing.)
my gamestop got the 40gb ps3 in and the arcade 360s,
one of the reason the 60gb are going so fast at Best Buy is because they have a promotion running for them now, which is why i waited.
with a 60gb model you get a choice of an extra controller, Heavenly Sword or Lair.
