    Is it me or.....

    I have had a week off so have been shopping (carrying bags) with my wife. I have noticed that the PS3 has far from sold out since it's launch 2 weeks ago, infact some shops have allready discounted them to shift them!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Sony supplied plenty so the profitering b@stards on ebay could't pre order them and sell em on.

    No good to me untill GTA comes out, or maybe GT4 er 5 whatever we're on next

    I think the next one is "GTA - Skegeness" - tractors and livestock are heavily featured!

    They have actually outsold all other games consoles on release. And the reason for the large stocks is as said Sony wanted to have abundant stocks avalaible so thjat there was no issue of eBay profittering as occurred in the US. It seems to have worked.

    As for the xbox360 ruling the roost in the EU, well it is early days but the fact that the PS3 has been consistently outselling the Xbox360 in the US and Japan by at least 4 to one (or it could be even greater as the figures that I saw were quite amazing! H*** I did not think that games consoles could shift that many units), leads me to believe that the Xbox 360 dominence will be short lived.

    The ps3 was NEVER going to sell out because sony have finialy learnt there lessons (probubly the reason for the delays) and dispatched far more then ordered in every country so far.

    everyone keeps telling me they canr get one - when i know theres plenty around - smaller towns will probably sell out all the time compared to a big city
