Nintendo Wii sold out, Sony PS3 still widely available

Posted on Friday, January 19 2007 @ 06:25:05 CET by

Analysts believe the Nintendo Wii is still outselling Sony's PS3 console. The Nintendo Wii is currently out of stock in most stores in the U.S., while the PlayStation 3 is still widely available.
“Our channel checks yesterday of 52 retail stores, from boutiques to big-box retailers, showed that 28 of the 52 stores had PS3 consoles in stock, while none had Wii consoles in stock,” American Technology Research analyst Paul-Jon McNealy said in the research note, Reuters news-agency has reported.

Nevertheless, he said that the stores – which included large and not very large – had units numbering in the low single digits, with only one major retailer having 60+ machines in stock.

Given that Sony’s PlayStation 3 costs $499 or even $599 depending on the version, there is no surprise that Nintendo Wii – which is also discussed and advertised widely – that costs $249 faces much higher demand, yet, amid much higher supply as well. Nevertheless, it is remarkable that the game console from the developer, which previous-generation gaming machine faced lukewarm welcome just several years ago, is so popular on the market that is heavily under attack by Microsoft and Sony.
