if people are scalping them online that means someone out there is buying them online so the Ps3's are still being bought by someone even if they are people so stupid they are paying many times more than it's already retail price.

It appears that Nintendo decided to split their launch shipment into two to coincide with having units available for Black Friday. The number actually released on launch day in the States was ~400,000 with the other 80k going to Canada.

Yeah, Nintendo did say 1 million will ship at launch. Nice to know that the stock will be replenished with a lot of consoles again, and retailers are (supposed) to get new shipments in weekly.

I do know that many retailers in the Seattle area got large shipments on both Sunday and Monday, the day after launch.

They were basing that on sell-through percentage reports, I imagine, and were taking those together and determining their sales numbers on the supposed launch shipment size of 1 million units. But when most marketing analysts claimed it got a 100% sell-through but only 480,000 were shipped, they corrected the number.

I have been hearing that most of the PS3 games are not even next gen and are plauged with problems and seemed rushed.

Yeah the Wii may not have the best graphics but the games are fun!

The online part of the PS3 is not that good from what I hear and if you want to play PS1 games on your PSP you have to have a PS3 to download them to your PSP.  That is just stupid!

May people have had problems with the PS3s with the drive tray not accepting their disks right out of the box.  True there have been problems with the Wii but not like with the PS3.  Nintendo always takes care of it's customers and does a very good job of it.  The Wii is made very well. 

I don't think Sony is going to win this war.  They are losing so many exculsive titles and many publishers like the DS much more than the PSP. 


Thank you, as you have just been Lazered
