PS3 retail shortage coming soon

Posted By | On 14th, Feb. 2010

Patrick Seybold, senior director of corporate communications at SCEA has said that there could be a shortage of PS3’s in the coming months.

Seybold explained that a recent rise in the number of systems sold has created low stock numbers.

“We’re working very hard with our retail partners to meet consumer interest, but the demand is tremendously high for the PS3 and we expect tight inventory in the coming months, he said. The strong demand carrying through the holidays was evident, and early in the month we [knew] there was going to be limited supply of the PS3 at retail in January. We’re working closely with the retail channel to meet this demand, but expect tight supply for the coming months.”

Seybold said the rise was also linked to a stellar holiday period, including games such as MAG and Bioshock 2.  The exact sales increase has been 36% compared to last January.
