Camping gear may remain the ultimate gaming peripheral for quite some time. According to the most recent Reuters report, the Playstation 3 won’t be wildly available in America until 2007 is half way over, sometime in June.
Whether or not the PS3 will meet its quota of one million units before the New Year remains to be seen, but the need for consoles for the European PS3 launch might negatively impact Sony’s ability to fulfill their promise to American gamers.
Fortunately for those who are after the Wii and don’t want to have to camp out in front of Best Buy, the console is expected to become more widely available by March.
Be safe though and keep that camping gear handy, gamers.
