I have looked everywhere for distributors of game consoles on the Internet. I am confused where these big retail companies get the consoles, DVDs and games from. It can't be wholesalers as they will be too expensive to have a middle man. Is the supply chain directly from the manufacturer to the big retailer? I have tried to look for information on the internet to see if Sony directly distributes PS3s, but can't find anything.

  2. Console

they must get directly from the manufacturers

or wholesalers but dont know who!

Big business can go directly to the manufacturer. I used to audit a large computer company when the PS1 first came out, and everyday a Sony lorry would arrive full of machines.

Sony would not sell to you at wholesale prices! In fact they have very strict rules on pricing of their products.

Sony are ***** when it comes to distribution.. just look at the whole Lik-sang fiasco
