We’re not talking the same kind of Wii shortages that happened when the Wii was popular, but Sony is now cautioning PlayStation 3 buyers that supplies will be tight. Sony’s senior director of corporate communications, Patrick Seybold, says that they are working hard, but “demand is tremendously high for the PS3 and we expect tight inventory in the coming months.”
Console sales in general slowed down in January, but are expected to pick up. Let us know if you have any trouble finding a PS3. We haven’t heard of any problems yet.
