US Getting Half of the World's PS3s?

Launch stock allocation brings more woe to European and Japanese would-be buyers. No matter what the price of the PlayStation 3 is, demand among the hardcore early-adopters is such that it will sell out regardless.

If this is true, it may be a sign that Japan isn't as important as they used to be to the video game industry. That would be bad news for traditionally Japanese oriented gaming companies, but good news for Western gaming companies. Of course, all this is speculation on my part. The real reason is probably just supply and demand. The US has the most gamers, so therefore the US gets the most consoles. Either way, the shortage problem will most likely be more severe for Sony than it was for Microsoft due to the fact that the Playstation brand is currently more popular than the XBOX brand.
