So I just came back from Target and they only had two PS3s.They had a pile of Wiis stacked and a bunch of 360s (every model even the MW2 bundle).I remember when you could not find a Wii in stores and now there are enough to build a fort with.Looks like the improved marketing and new price continue to have great success.

The PS3 is selling great in my area. I would say more people have a 360 than they do a PS3 in my city as everyone at my school has a 360, and the odd one or two who have a PS3.

You go into a shop, give the person behind the till your money and he/she gives you a PS3 in return.

All standard fair really.

A co-worker friend of mine works an evening part time shift at a local retailer. They get about 7 PS3's a week, and right now they have about 20 on the shelf. So in supply is exceeding the out.

We are notorious here though for maintaining lower than normal console counts.

Don't pay that much attention to how many consoles anyone store has! What really is pissing me off is haven't seen any bundles for the PS3. You would think Sony America, would have announced something. I mean the Holiday Season is closing fast!!

True... I hadn't paid that much attention, but I haven't seen any bundles here either.

You would think with Black Friday approaching, they would be out in force.

Well I was in Target yesterday and they had about 6 slims and 1 Uncharted bundle (phaty 160gb) left on the shelves and they also had a ton of wiis and only a few 360's.

But on Thursday morning when I picked up Brutal Legends at Wal-Mart they had a ton of PS3's locked up in a floor cage and it was a mixture of slims and phaties. Did not really pay attention to the other consoles though... I was on my way to work and was in a rush..:lol:


Haven't been in the Fred Meyers lately so can't tell you what they have..

Most of the places I've been to have many PS3s in stock but don't mean much. I did convince three of my university flatmates to buy a Slim. That's my contribution to the effort. :D

At Gamestop we are currently outselling both the 360 and Wii about 5 or 6-1. PS3 is dominating right now.

In my Area (Sheffield, England) all of my friends were Xbox up until the Slim has been released, out of 10 with a 360 about 6 now have got a playstation 3.

Nearly everybody with a PS3 I know has KZ2 and LBP yet sales figures are still crap for both. Interesting.
