SCEA: "Demand remains high for PS3 despite shortages"

Demand "remains incredibly high" for the PS3 in the US, despite recent shortages, according to Patrick Seybold, SCEA’s senior director of corporate communications.

With 1.1 million copies of God of War III sold, and the PS3 release of Final Fantasy XIII selling twice as many units as its Xbox 360 counterpart, Sony has much to celebrate.

“The huge appetite for PS3 content and gaming experiences has never been stronger as we continue to bring out great games like God of War III which was the #1 software sku in March with more than 1.1 million units sold in less than 3 weeks,” Seybold said.

According to March NPDs the PS3 sold 313k, the PSP 119k, and the PS2 118k.
