EA predicts PS3 shortages for North America

Well, you can’t say I didn’t warn you.  Wearing his Master of the Obvious hat, Electronic Arts CFO Warren Jenson warned on Friday, that PlayStation 3 units will be hard to get hold of in the US this Christmas following the console’s launch on November 17.  Jenson’s reasoning is what’s worth  reporting

In a conference call Jenson said, “We’re thinking that with PlayStation 3 in North America, the [shipment] range is probably 500,000 to 800,000.”  Sony has previously stated it plans to ship 2 million consoles to the US and Japan by the end of the year, but that number had recently been downgraded to 1-1.2 million.
