Don't worry. They will still sell craploads of them here in Europe

And they will be even overpriced too...

so um one store has some sitting on the floor and suddenly theres a nationwide surplus? I still cant find either the 20 or 60gb model where I live, and Ive been looking since I sold my launch unit. I sure wouldn't mind that huge surplus hitting my area at all.

I dont have intentions of buying one for a couple more months mind you, but I do check just like I did with the 360 a year before I actually got one heh.

The problem with the limited PS3 surplus is that it is in the PS3's prime market, Japan.

I've seen it with my own eyes too when I was picking up a new printer. It's at least 2 stores Seriously though, I think areas with a surplus outnumber those without.

Yeah, heaven forbid anyone waits for any real games or anything.
It is more important to please the interweb experts or something...
I mean it is not like they sold more PS3s in the first two months than Microsoft did or anything, and it is not like Microsoft had no "next gen" competition to deal with.
Nope doom and gloom.

Yeah, seriously. How many threads do we need on this type thing. Maybe one thread where everyone can post every link for sales figures every time they're released.

Every store I have been in which sells consoles has had multiple ps3s waiting for purchase. Sad, I really hope Sony learns its lesson.

Every store I go to they have huge amounts of 360's. They have like 3 PS3's, no Wii's and like 15 360's. Not moving at all.

actually scratch my last comment. I did find 2 60s at Walmart today, and one was in the process of being sold. I'll probably just sell my 360 sooner or later to get one when some better games come out since I'm not really happy with the 360.
