why does sony have to have such a low amount of systems avalible?

5 replies 4 views Edited Nov 21, 2006
i know its a good marketing idea that keeps people wondering and it makes the system seem so much better, but because of the low amount of ps3's avalible i am going to buy the xbox 360 now or possibaly the wii. it was the same when the psp came out but i ended up buying it a couple of months later. honestly this whole marketing scheme dosnt appeal to me and because of the delay i might as well buy the 360. how do you feel about sony's limitations on quantities on their products? has it changed any of your purchases?

For the first time, I truly believe that they CAN'T make enough, and not because they are trying to create a frenzy by purposely releasing low quantities.
 
The PS3 just has too many bells and whistles which I truly feel is causing headaches and problems in the manufacuring process.

I'll get it but just after a while.  Probably after Christmas when I can pick on up at Retail again.  You all feel free to ebay it up and pay 3K.  Do it with my blessings...I'll wait.

i know exactly why they shipped out such a low amont...............
 
BECAUSE ITS A NEW LAUNCHED SYSTEM AND THEY KNOW THWE MORE THEY SEND OUT THE MORE THAT WILL HAVE TO GET REPAIRED, + i think sony knows most of there system at launch was gonna BREAK DOWN BUT THEY DIDNT CARE. and when sony gets all the problems a bit better they will ship more out i bet... just my view on it

For many reasons, bert2z.

  1. With the amount of bells and whistles the PS3 has, production costs are obviously very high.
  2. It creates hype.
  3. All consoles have problems have problems at launch, and with limited launches, they won't have to repair a lot of consoles.
