Get Ready to Flip that Playstation 3
People looking for a way to make a quick (legal) buck should know Sony has lowered the expected number of Playstation 3 consoles that will make it to North America this fall:
Sony Computer Entertainment Chief Ken Kutaragi told reporters that far fewer units will be available for the U.S. and Japanese launches, with the U.S. to be allocated 400,000 units, and Japan getting 100,000. As a result, Sony has now lowered its estimate of 4 million PS3s shipped by the end of 2006 to a more realistic 2 million.
Like what happened last year with the Xbox 360, eBay will be buzzing with high-priced game console auctions. European gamers with large wallets will be wanting their PS3.
