GameStop exec says PS3 is in abundant supply.

Daniel A. DeMatteo, vice chairman and COO of GameStop, late last week said PS3s are available at "hundreds of the company's 3,700 outlets," according to the New York Times. The Wii, on the other hand, is still hard to come by.

Over the weekend, GameSpot editors visited a local EB Games, which is owned by GameStop, and found PS3s available for purchase.

I thought the ps3 was flying off the shelves due to overwhelming demand...
oh silly me!!

Here we see yet another shining example of why Sony did not provide SELL THROUGH numbers, but instead opted for the 'shipped' number of 1 million.

Best Buy.com still has PS3's available
Gamestop still has PS3's available
Other retail locations have them available

Sony must be getting a bit scared at this point. Perhaps all of those fans who would buy it 'simply because it said Sony on it' are trying to save up enough money to make the purchase.

Perhaps it is a bit too early to predict how things will turn out, but Nintendo is smelling like roses, MS is doing much better than last gen, and Sony is still holding on dearly to the PS2.

Who wants to bet there will be a shift in marketing strategy BACK to the PS2 once they realize how much of a failure the PS3 really is!?

Sure the graphics look like crap
Sure it is last gen
But it has vibration and 100 million install base

please come back to the PS2.....we need you...

The slower they sale sooner they will be forced into a price drop. Just like the Game cube. $99.99 and a free 1st. party game ring any bells for any one.

If the 360 was this available last year they would have hit the 10 mill. mark 2 - 3 months ago.

This must be the third or fouth day in a row (allmost) this "news" gets posted here.

Come on.. There HAS to be something more interesting out there.

For me the game with perfect combat was Lord Of The Ring: Shadow of Mordor.

Anarchy Reigns Retro Review – It’s a Mad World

Gary Green said: If you were one of those lucky gamers who pre-ordered Anarchy Reigns online back in 2012, then you were probably very pleased to see your copy arrive up to two weeks early, allowing you smile smugly at those preferring to pick up the game in-store on launch day, not that many shops were even bothering to stock it. If the early release wasn’t enough to inspire you to pick up Anarchy Reigns, then how about the Limited Edition retailing at under 20GBP? Tempted yet?

It all sounds too good to be true. You might be wondering how the game could ship so early before release. Well, that’s largely down to the fact that Anarchy Reigns was ready months earlier. The Japanese version, titled ‘Max Anarchy’, featured a fully English language option and was released back in autumn 2012. Surely though that’s not a big enough reason to half the price of a new-release game, right? There must be more darkening Anarchy Reigns’ potential to justify such an act.

This game was a special kind of fun, I am always keeping a low hope for a re-release because there's little else like it.

I would love a remaster of original Madworld for current gen and PC

Hopefully McNamara is as far away from this as possible he set up shop in Australia then did nothing but complain about Australian labour laws while trying to make his workers live at the office working 24/7 on la noire punishing them for leaving at 3 am and being 10 minutes late to work at 9am the next day.

It's astonishing that none of the workers went to the fair work ombudsman as the studio would have been fined astronomical numbers

Brendan McNamara is a brilliant writer and director but he should never, ever be in charge of a studio. What he did to those devs was far beyond "crunch", and it went on for, what, 7 years? That's insane.

But I'm glad to see some of that team have come together again to create something new. A psychological thriller sounds right up my alley.

I would have liked to see a new noir game.
