Japanese and UK retailers struggling for PS3 stock

The persistent rumours that a new PlayStation 3 model is coming are being fuelled by news that several UK and Japanese retailers are struggling to source sufficient stock of the current PS3 console. According to Wedbush Morgan, PS3 stock is becoming increasingly difficult to source with retailers in Japan being told that they wouldn’t receive any units after 8 August whilst UK retailers are not able to place any new orders until the end of August. Both events point to a potential model change.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) is expected to make an announcement at the new GamesCom event in Cologne, Germany sometime today. Until then nobody really knows what to expect but we’ll keep you posted as soon as there’s some more news.
