if they carry out their threat to charge an astronomical rip off price as opposed to what the rest of the world are being charged then I can't see a shortage.
they've mucked up bigtime, we've all bought wiis now and we're not gonna stump up for a glorified blu-ray dvd player when the format war is still going on.

i agree the rip off porices there charging means i wont by one from the uk + i got a wii now

PS3 Shortage??

Course there will!!! The customers.....:?

Whenever PS3 actualy does launch I fully expect an Xbox 360 price drop to be announce at the exact same time.

That's why I'm waiting before buying a 360 (Owned a wii but as I'm neither a girl or under 15 I took it back :) )

I don't think an official pricedrop is imminent at all. Can everyone keep an eye out for cheap hats just in case though.

As a sidenote, 360s have just started shipping with faster and quieter drives.

Yes - it's Supply and Demand.

They have enough to fill all customers immediate desire, then they cannot sell at rediculous prices for almost a 'civil consumer war' to take place..

Where did you find that out?

It was apparently quietly announced as they don't offer it as an official upgrade to existing 360s and don't want customers specifically seeking the latest hardware revisions. Somewhat similar to the introduction of the models with improved processors that use less electricity and run cooler.

There will be an intial shortage, but I dont expect it to be too long, like how the Wii and Xbox 360 were.

There are 3 obvious times for a 360 price drop. First is the PS3 launch, second is May when they historically like to reduce their price to give a second quarter boost and the third is the launch of Halo 3.

If Halo 3 is pushed back for a christmas launch then I predict a May price drop to boost early year sales and then Halo 3 will boost 360 sales all by itself for christmas.

Either way I'm not buying a 360 until the first price drop, which will be the biggest. I also wanna know whether or not they are lying when they say no wireless guitars for Guitar Hero II. I reckon they're just trying to sell all the wired ones first then will launch the wireless guitar at a later date. I hope so anyway :)

i predict ps3 selling for between £1000 & £1500 on ebay easily if shortage.
#13
I am not so sure if there will be a lack of customers, we get a fair few people enquiring about it and when they will be able to preorder it.

In fact our preorder interest list is pretty big, considering.
#14
at £500 for the ps3, i think they will sell out considering people would part with £700 for an xbox in the seasonal period. i dont know how much they were going for post christmas but dont think they were far off £500.
#15
alot of xbox 360 were selling at launch on ebay for £1000+
#16
HMV Leadenhall Market in the City (London) taking pre-orders.
I presume all HMVs will be too.

Less likely they will do price drop, more like a better package like adding a extra game. Beside there be a new xbox 360 black with 120gb and hdmi connector on launch with the ps3. Wouldn't be surprise the hd drive be included with a price still cheaper then ps3.
