PlayStation 3 supply slowly meeting demand

Retail supplies for the PlayStation 3 seem to be increasing, enough to the point where it seems that most are unwilling to come up with the ridiculous prices that some early birds were trying to charge. This includes both the stores themselves and individual consumers who got lucky. Given the already extremely high price of the PS3, that's good news for those looking to pick one up sometime this year. In comparison to the 360's launch, it seems that supply is slowly reaching demand, this time before Christmas:

“Last year, at NotifyWire.com, we tracked several one thousand dollar Xbox 360 bundles which would sell out in less than two minutes after becoming available. Just today, a one thousand dollar PS3 bundle was in stock at eToys.com for over 12 hours. This sort of thing didn’t happen with the Xbox 360 until well after Christmas,” said Mr. Drake.
Sales for the PS3 still seem relatively low, though December sales haven't been announced yet. Likely the high price tag is still making many leery.
