Supplies of Sony’s PlayStation 3 are so tight, and demand apparently so high, that Amazon.com has had to change its policy to limit customers to one 120GB console per household.
This as Sony simultaneously licks its wounds over January’s monthly sales figures and celebrates a year-over-year sales increase of 36 percent compared with January 2009. “This is truly remarkable given the tight inventory we’ve been experiencing as a result of high consumer demand since last fall,” blogged Sony’s president and CEO, Jack Tretton.
Who needs more than one PS3 anyway? Unless you’re reselling them. Not that I wanted to go out and buy a six-pack of PS3s tonight, but it really chafes when a retailer does this, like they’re the self-appointed gatekeepers of stuff.
