Sony has confirmed that more shipments of the PlayStation 3 are on their way!
“We are getting a second shipment next week, probably around the middle of next week,” Matt Levitan , marketing and public relations manager for Sony Computer Entertainment of Canada, told CBC News Online on Friday. “We’ll know by Monday or Tuesday when they will be available.
“We are flying in shipments from Japan and China, and will probably ship them directly to retail” instead of to Sony’s warehouses, he said.
Lavitan expects for there to be four or five shipments of the PlayStation 3 before the end of the year.
