Sony really needs to fix their US Supply issues.
It is still sold out in most major metro areas and they are getting little new stock.
Sony must fix this lest they wish to continue digging their own grave.

I bet they could have sold at least 50% more if there was not a supply issue in the US.

PS3 undertracked by almost half a million on VGchartz?  The numbers aren't shipped numbers so it seems so.

Yeah, the US and UK supply issues need to be remedied ASAP...this is getting worse and worse.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

I think they're liquidating the stock right now because they want the last of the fatties to get sold off. And I think they are wanting to get people used to ordering them online through them so as to make more profit off each unit sold. Now is a great time to own 3 or 4 systems 2 of which are still in box. EBAY Here I come
