Hey, guys. I have bad news, however, this may not be 100%, but you will know by the end of September. So, I work in a game store, and today my boss got his tix for the tokyo game show for next month. Well, his dealer that promise him PS3 for Nov. launch told him he may only get one if that. Apparently, Japan and the U.S. are splitting the shipments for launch. The rumor is that the U.S. will not even get 1 million units at launch. Those numbers are really bad. Meaning that some gamestops are not even going to get a PS3 in.

Shit, I just got the numbers just now. It seems that U.S. will get about 500,000. Wow, thats really bad. Expect March or April '07
to get some actual units. I dont think my store will get a PS3 at all. This will be worse than the 360 launch. This is a really bad shortage. Well, I'll keep up to date. But nothing is official until the TGS.

Aint no biggie. I'll wait until GTA4 drops on the PS3, then ill buy one. By that time, the price should have dropped!

I see what you guys are saying, and I dont think there will be a price drop any time soon. Give it more than a year.

i don't reckon it'll stay the launch price for very long especiialy seeing the range of 360 games there is, i'm surprised it's coming out so high, because surely they'll loose sales over christmas, just cos everyone else is saying why they wanna PS3 i'm gonna get one when either of these games come out;

assassins creed
FFXIII + vs
army of two

yeah i know but what makes me hesitate is that the first wave of console will have a lot of problems and flaws like the ps2 (not reading certain games)and x box, 360

I wonder how much the launch titles will cost, seeing as the price of games ranges from like $49.99-$99.99

if this is true sony have miscalculated big time, there 2 biggest markets without enough PS3's on launch day they will suffer. it would make sense for them to delay the launch date cause it seems the PS3 is being rushed just like the 360 was rushed.

Because of the whole Blu-Ray thing, You can guarntee that the games won't be any cheaper than $59.99 at launch.

All the games are 50-70 the most. i do not know what the hell he is talking about. The games are the same prices as the 360. The wii games will be cheaper. 40-60 the most. Just like previous consoles ex: ps2, xbox, and cube.

I want a wii more than the PS3 now. Its 249.99 and zelda:twilight princess, metroid prime 3, and trauma center are launch titles. I like those franchises. PS3 launch is similar to the games that will come out for xbox360. However, resistance:fall of man looks amazing.
