With the release of God of War III yesterday, Sony’s PlayStation 3 has moved off store shelves quicker than ever as multiple retailers have reported the console as Sold Out.
GameStop had both the 120GB and 250GB PlayStation Slim unavailable for purchase and back ordered. So, not only did the console sell, but it oversold the stock GameStop had available to its consumers.
The same fate was served at Best Buy as the retailer had a “Sold Out” status for both the 120GB and 250GB models. This is pretty surprising considering Sony said they would replenish stock in time for the God of War III release. So either the company is still facing shortages or God of War III is moving consoles like bottled water after a natural disaster.
Furthermore, Amazon.com was cleaned out as well. Both SKU’s were unavailable as of yesterday and it seems like Sony is preparing to enjoy a much higher NPD number than February’s 360,000 figure.
