PS3 Shortages "likely"
Posted on September 24, 2009 by Erik
 

If you have one of the newly redesigned PS3s, good for you! If you don't, you might consider running out and grabbing one, and if you're considering getting one as a gift this holiday season, my advice is to go NOW and get one, while you can. Why? Sony is forcasting that hardware shortages will be a likely even, given the sharp increase in sales since the relaunch and the very favorable reviews. Speaking with Reuters, head honcho Jack Tretton had this to say:

"If things continue at this pace, it is conceivable that there will be product shortages, in a very difficult economy, I couldn't be more optimistic about our fortunes for the rest of the year and for the future."

PS3 sales in North America increased by a whopping 300 percent following the introduction of a price cut last month, which saw the machine drop to $299 USD.
