Plenty of PS3's in stock, but no takers?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Plenty of PS3's in stock, but no takers?

I personally experienced a similar scene yesterday at my local Best Buy. Again, I am assured that my hypothesis may be correct for this generation. We will probably see in North America that Nintendo Wii at #1, Microsoft Xbox 360 at #2 and Sony PlayStation at #3. Article: "Reports have been steadily trickling in since yesterday of stockpiles of Playstation 3s found sitting around in Best Buys untouched, or hardly touched."

Since I'm a procrastinator, I went shopping on christmas eve and was somewhat surprised to see PS3's in stock at several stores. Granted, it was a relatively small number, but surprising none the less. I have a hunch that this will continue until Sony has a major price drop. $600 is just too much for most people to stomach, especially with significantly lower priced competition. (and I say 600 because I've have yet to see a 20gig anywhere, and reports indicate that they produce/ship far more 60's than 20's)

I saw one 20 and all the rest were 60's so I agree.

now the real question is, what was the figure like back in 2001 when the PS2 launched, wasn't it also like this? people were buying it once the price had dropped right, so comparing those facts one can say sony doesnt have many loyal fans eh?
