The shortage of PS3s that hit Japan is likely going to play itself out here just as well. Only a few hours remain until stores will begin offering them for sale, and already thousands of people around the U.S. are lined up at doors waiting to get them, not counting the many units already on pre-order. Sony is claiming they will be bringing them in as fast as they can, even flying them in straight out of the factory. Yet, reading this recent clipping from Fox News gives me the impression that Sony really has no idea
about when they will be able to meet demand. Whether it is just a month down the road or six, their statements regarding being able to supply an adequate amount of PS3s is vague at best.
What will tomorrow's sales be like? If it's anything like Japan, the shelves will be empty mighty quick.
