found this on another board:
It seems now that the holiday spending season is over, Sony is having a tough time selling the PS3 in Japan.
This link shows a bunch of people in line waiting to buy products at a yodobashi and which items sold out. Nearly everything sold out except the PS3 and the ricecooker. The PS3 shipment to the store was 3,000 and only 300 were sold.
This link contains a variety of pics that show just how available the PS3 is in Japan. Even with the limited amout of units being made, it is realitively easy to find a PS3 in Japan.
With similar stories in US, will Sony struggle selling PS3 early next year? If indeed Sony does struggle, what options do they have? The can't cut the price because they would lose too much money and it is generally against their standard operation.
I think Sony will look into bundling packages next year like they have done with the PSP if they struggle in sales.
This is bad , i want Sony to be humiliated for lying about the ps3 , not fail completely... monopoly is not a good thing. I dont consider Wii and 360 to be competitors, has they aim for different market.
