From the district manager of EB, sounds as if out of the 15 to 20 preorders EB and Gamestop stores had, they're only going to beable to fulfill 5 of them. Something about Sony cutting back 3/4 of the first shipment. Sony no doubt is not ready to launch this system. Sounds like it could be the 2Q of next year before there's enough systems to keep up with demand. If not later, due to Europe getting their PS3s I believe in march. Mean while, Nintendo is spitting out 1 million units. Guessing a bunch of PS3 would have been buyers will buy a wii to pass the next 6 months before a PS3 hits the local stores.
