Sony have done similar things in the past, they allocate stock depending on guaranteed sales of other items of theirs.

Tbh, the fuss for this console is sizzling out over here after the release date got set back far and then being faced with the fact that cross platform games generally run worse on this thing.

Got a hunch though in 2008 or round abouts, it will start to take off in a big way.

I can see it happening, but only if Blu-Ray becomes something the 'masses' know about. Right now I think your general person see's a PS3 and doesn't really know what the hell is in it lol. Once they start advertising Blu-Ray on TV, Selling it majorly in shops and that.. Then yeh, People will want a Ps3.

Lol. I think its more of a store thing than a Sony thing. When other retailers start pulling similar stunts, then i'll get worried.
