With the launch of the utterly overpriced Playstation 3, I was amazed to hear Sony's "spin" on the launch of the console.
Unlike the XBox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, there are no shortages of Playstation 3 at launch. Sony claim that this is because "They have seen the mistakes made by their rivals and they have ensured that demand has been more than met".
The real story is, of course, rather different. Whereas Nintendo Wii's are still unavailable unless pre-ordered due top the continued staggering demand for them, Sony simply do not have enough buyers out there who want to pay £425 for a console when they could get something similar for £250 from Xbox or for £180 form Nintendo.
Far from "meeting demand", quite simply "demand has not met supply". You could credit Sony for this or ask, why aren't the people out there buying Playstation 3 ?
