It confuses me that Sony was able to keep them on shelves easier when the price cut first hit, yet we are in April and they are having a harder time.

ClownBelt3104d ago

They are probably trying to redesign the PS3 again to lower the cost while giving enough supply. Remember, they're still losing money on every PS3 sold.

How come the Wii outsells both consoles combined but barely have shortages?

@above
you mean, they're thinking about what to remove next from the PS3. Each new PS3 is a stripped down version of the previous one, WTH.

dktxx23104d ago

Um because they make more?

Do I need to explain why they make more?

HolyOrangeCows3104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

It's not really hurting them that much. They've still managed to outsell the 360 WW all year long. Software is doing amazing lately, too.

commodore643104d ago

Wait.. what?

People are still talking about ps3 'shortages'?
Are we honestly expected to believe that Sony is unable to meet demand for the 4 slowest months of the year?

Come now, chilluns.
That's just silly.

Sony hasn´t lost money on any PS3 since August 2008, where have u been?

Mahr3104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

"Sony hasn´t lost money on any PS3 since August 2008, where have u been?"

Uh, yes, they have. Sony's games division posted a half a billion dollar loss in 2009 alone, and the Wall Street Journal reported that the PS3 was still being sold at a loss as recently as two months ago.

PS3 shortage? Must be just isolated in certain area's. Cause there is plenty where i live at.

ThanatosDMC3103d ago

This just means the demands is higher than what they thought it would be... there are more and more 360 converts after all going to the PS3 and staying there.

This $h!t really gets on my nerves.

Race meaning the competition between Sony and Microsoft. They are competitors and Sony having low stock is hurting them. Check out the show and you will see what I am talking about.

LordMarius3104d ago

lol, why the question marks? how hard is it to understand

-Alpha3104d ago

The shortages definitely suck, but I expect to see a surge once GT5 releases. I'm not underestimating that game for one second.

I am somewhat confident that Sony can turn the tide considering Japan, but they need to work on NA and GT5 may be the key.

They are doing great and I'm cautiously optimistic about them overtaking MS, but with a rumored price cut MS is definitely going to fight for their second place.

In the end nobody will come close to Nintendo. It's a race between MS and Sony, and people have tuned out Nintendo while pretending that MS and Sony are all that exist. It's pretty funny but people are in complete denial with how much Nintendo has won this generation.

I beg your pardon, but a surge in what? In people who want-to-but-can't buy PS3s?

-Alpha3104d ago

Surely Sony will have consoles on demand by then... right?

Mahr3104d ago

"Surely Sony will have consoles on demand by then... right?"

Unless they raise the price, there's not much they can do in the near-future to produce substantially more consoles each month than they currently are.

HDgamer3104d ago

Nick you are blind there is a third console in the race called Nintendo wii which is in first place.

Nintendo systems don't count.

You call that a great show? A kid that talk about that shortage hurt Sony in the race, this is a stupid show i ever see.

Sony sell already more PS3 World Wide than 360, so this kid need shut his mouth before he talking about hurting sales, because that is what he talking about.

BrothaDave3104d ago

low stock never hurt the wii

asdr3wsfas3104d ago

From this description I totally understand why this is in the wii section - the host is a complete narcissist. I don't care if wii stuff is covered. Put it in the description or have the decency to quit cluttering the wii section.

2Spock3104d ago

Yeah dont clutter the wii section. They need room for cooking mama or something.
