SCE UK now warn of PlayStation 3 shortages

After SCEA warned yesterday that the PlayStation 3 could be in short supply over the coming weeks, SCE UK have now warned MCV the same could be true in the UK.

Sales directer Mark Howsen said “Since we launched the slimline PS3 model, the demand has been overwhelming – running over 20 per cent ahead of our expectations…[however] this has lead to some stock issues, particularly with the 120Gb model. We are doing our best to address these issues and hope to catch up in the next few weeks.”

With big name exclusives such as Heavy Rain, God of War III and Final Fantasy XIII all within the space of just over a month, Sony will no doubt want to keep stock levels high over the coming period.
