Just when it looks bad for the PS3

It starts to look worse

An internal Gamestop email expressed concern over how many PS3s their chain (which is the largest videogame retailer and includes Ebgames as well) would have available. A local store that received between 50 and 100 Xbox 360s at launch is expecting to get no more than 20 PS3s.

And the Xbox 360 wasn’t exactly a perfect launch, if you recall. A little bit of a shortage can be a good thing, as it creates an artificial scarcity that makes it seem “hotter” than it might otherwise. But with a shortage as drastic as they’re talking about, it can only hurt the system’s launch performance overall.

On the other hand, maybe Sony just doesn’t anticipate on selling more than twenty per store. Hah!
