More PS2 Woes?
More news for those of you looking to buy an elusive PS2 now, and once more, it's not good although all of the following is currently only at rumour level. This time it's news that the before-Christmas ship of PS2s will only number 50,000, substantially less than will be required to meet demand.
An example of one large high street chain's pre-order value was given; approx 50,000 PS2 pre-orders, pre-Christmas allocation = 13,500. This will leave somewhere in the region of 36,500 unhappy customers from this one chain alone with them only being able to fulfil 27% of orders.
This is bad news for those of you yet to pre-order, and pretty poor for those of you who have as there is a reasonable chance you won't see your machine this year.
Thanks to Retronana for most of the information above.
