Sony's Official Line on PS3 Stock Shortages

While some analysts were claiming that the shortfall of PS3's being delivered to American retailers this week would be anything up to half the expected 400,000 units, the co-chief operating officer of Sony Computer Entertainment America has confirmed - somewhat vaguely - that there will be "tens of thousands'' fewer PS3's in-store than originally expected for the launch weekend.

Remember how Sony Fan boys were saying the PS3 launch was going to smash the 360's launch.

I thought the PS3 launch was supposed to be far better than the 360 launch? I thought having blu-ray meant superior games? I thought it was going to be 100% backwards compatible?
All BS from SONY as usual well done.

They also said said they were great at manufacturing hardware-implying there would be no issues. Oh and; "The HD era doesn't start until we say so"... Oh well! Sony fanboys camped out just to buy an expensive web browser.
