SCEE on Euro DualShock 3: We can’t guarantee day one shipments to all

Friday, 4th July 2008 12:49 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking to MCV, SCEE has admitted it may find satisfying day one European shipments of DualShock 3 difficult this week, but that more units are on the way.

Said Mark Howsen, SCEE’s UK sales director, “It’s going to be a close call as to whether we can guarantee enough stock for everybody day one, however, we’ll be making regular shipments thereafter, in order to satisfy demand.”

There’s info there that Sixaxis will continue alongside the new controller as well. Fancy.

“We’ll continue to offer the Sixaxis controller for the time being, giving consumers a cost effective buying choice, based on their gaming needs,” said Howsen. “Moving forwards, we’ll monitor demand at retail.”

DualShock 3′s out in Europe tomorrow. More through the link.

    There was plenty – and I mean *plenty* – of stock in just about every game-selling shop I went into at lunchtime.

    I could’ve bought far more than I could carry if I’d had the inclination. Oddly all the branches of Game seemed to have sold out of PS3 hardware… first time since launch? :D
