UK Faces PS3 Shortage

Just the other day we brought you news that the US were facing a possible shortage of PlayStation 3s as demand for Sony’s console exceeds expectations. Well, it appears that the UK can expect the same thing.

Sony UK admitted to MCVUK that the PS3 is in short supply. It appears that the 120GB PS3 Slim is to blame as demand rose 20% above expectations. Sales director Mark Howson said that they were working on getting the issue sorted within the next few weeks.


Sony are obviously pleased with the demand but “within the next few weeks” Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III will be released. I’d hurry up if I were you, Sony.
