"April or May is when we feel like we're going to catch up to demand and have product fully in stock across North America and stay there," said Jack Tretton, chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment America.
Asked about widespread reports on video game Web sites that stacks of unsold PlayStation 3s are a common sight in many electronics shops, Tretton told Reuters in an interview that the console was still out of stock in some areas three months after its November launch.
"It's a testament to the fact that we've been able to manufacture and ship units on a greater pace than any previous console," Tretton said.
Nintendo is also having serious Wii shortage problems. I've ordered a Wii nearly four weeks ago here in Flanders and I still haven't got my hands on one. In most stores they are soldout and it looks like I'll have to wait another week or two.
