Actually since days after Christmas I've seen the entire line of gaystop/eb stores in the area posting hand made marker ads on the front windows saying PS3's in stock 60GB model, in some cases both. What they have not been advertising either way is the Wii, but they're out...everywhere. Circuit City for weeks now has had a store made sticker like logo on the front window there saying it is out of stock.

The SICK thing is that fucked up group of assclowns at the NPD that get quoted as 'accurate' to sales showing the PS3 at like 600K and Wii at 900K current, when in reality the Wii is like 1.2 and the PS3 at 750K. Not sure if anyone here knows it already or not but NPD doesn't get totals from Walmart, Toys R Us and Target...the three largest game retailers (coincidentially Nintendo's biggest sellers too.) Funny how that fucks with the curve eh?

Fact is Nintendo was right and Sony was dead wrong and FINALLY this time is paying for it. Nintendo knew a lot of people weren't wanting to pay $400-600 for a console. They knew they needed a ton of units to try and meet demand but they'd still be short. Sony says people are paying too little and will welcome the PS3 at that price for the games and movies and they'd be sold out for a long time.


Now if you want a semi-accurate total of stuff sold so far, try here: http://www.vgcharts.org/ That other place called consolewars is full of shit and way off. Funny how fast Wii is catching on the 360 and only is being shafted by short supply (like the DS often suffers from especially in Japan.)
