Sony shipped 33.5 million ps3 at the end of Dec. 09, and the ps3 is at 31.65 right now. So almost 2 million ps3 available. I think its funny that my brother went to 15 stores and all the stores were sold out of ps3 so my brother just ordered one off of amazon.

there could be a very good reason why those two facts could co-exist.
