Tretton: Some Shortages Remain
Posted by XanTium | 28-2-2007 13:03 EST

 
From next-gen.biz:


In an interview with Reuters, SCEA boss Jack Tretton reiterated that the company is set to ship 2 million PlayStation 3s in North America by the end of March. He also said that all shortages would be fixed by "April or May".

Reuters challenged Tretton on whether or not there actually are any shortages. He said, that there are areas of the country where stocks are short adding, "It's a testament to the fact that we've been able to manufacture and ship units on a greater pace than any previous console."

Remember, this is also the guy who apparently didn't get the memo that Resistance wasn't 1080p anymore even past the US launch. Although technically, yes there is an area with massive PS3 shortages: It's called Europe.

They announced last weekend that they have shipped 4 million units but they have only sold 2 million. There is no way there is a shortage.

6 units? thats nothin'

there are 25 sitting at best buy that havent moved in weeks. there is no demand for the system, any executive that believes otherwise is fuggin confused. To know the truth and still say there are shortages is just plain stupid

You chose which they are doing biggrin.gif

There actually weren't any PS3's at the Best Buy here when I went to pick up Crackdown last week. But that's the first time I haven't seen any in stock since before Christmas. I've never seen stacks of 25 or anything, but there is usually 4-6 on the shelf.
