Only about 10% of North America's 400,000 PS3 allotment sold yesterday?

The fellas over at Joystiq sibling blog PS3 Fanboy debunk the rumor that 80% of PlayStation 3 stock was sold out in yesterday's GameStop presale event. They've done the math, and if their pencils are sharp, only about 10% of North America's 400,000 PS3 allotment was sold yesterday.

Where are the rest of the units? Some significant portion of them are probably sitting in a GameStop warehouse awaiting bundling, mega-bundling, and super-ultimate-mega-platinum bundling.

I would hope gamestop isn't going to charge $1000+ for PS3 bundles... they are like the scammers on ebay except with more buying power and distribution networks!

where do the poorer gamers fit into this plan? the students and teenagers?

scammers don't offer more things to go with it to make it worth 1000$. Thats why its called Bundles.

when did poor gamers fit anywhere in the PS3 plan they didn't thats why most of them have already planned on buying a nintendo Wii or others a 360 or already own a 360.

THELANDSOFSAND6344d ago (Edited 6344d ago )

but you can't choose just the console when you are forced to buy a bundle. its another way for big companies to extort gamers. and normally that extra free stuff is a crappy game, a pad and a memory card that would be cheaper if you bought it seperately on the net.

FordGTGuy6344d ago

you hurry up and buy the non-bundle. Sony is the one allowing them to make the bundle yell at them.

Stores like Best Buy and Circuit City. I am sure that larger retailers will be receiving the bulk of PS3's.

Sony has spent a ton of money to promote the PS3 in larger retail chains.

And as of right now, none of the large retailers are doing pre-orders.

ZOMG!!! ITZ A COMSPIRACY!!! THE EVIL GAMESTOP EMPIRE WANTS YOU TO PAY $1000 FOR A PS#!!! OH NOEZ!?!?!?

Think about it!
-Wal-Mart
-Sam's
-Best Buy
-Circuit City
-etc...

THELANDSOFSAND6344d ago

i seriously doubt wal-mart will sell $1000 PS3's!

Wish they'd hurry with these remasters lol. I was hoping to knock them out before ec released.

You're telling me. I assume they will likely piggy back of EC hype. But we will have to wait and see.
