Best Buy, GameStop, and Target stores in West Hollywood are just some of the stores that are out of stock of the consoles, some stores haven’t had PS3’s for weeks now.
Even Wal-Mart online and Amazon.com were also reported to be sold out.
Obviously a bad situation regardless but God of War III is expected to be a system seller and Sony is going to lose out with this one. Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) president Jack Tretton commented:
"It's not ideal, I won't kid you. But I firmly believe we'll get our hardware back in stock and keep selling God of War III for a long time."The first two titles on the PS2 sold eight million copies.
"We ultimately don't make investments on a product-by-product or month-by-month basis, but rather we invest in our platform. This game will pay off for us with the people who own a PlayStation 3 and the ones who will buy one in the future."
