Slim PS3 sold out

Sony's loosely-defined launch date of early September for its redesigned PS3 gaming console was not only wrong, but stores are already sold out of the first shipments. Earlier this week, photo evidence showed the console arriving at certain Best Buy locations and now there is word of other electronics retailers also getting limited runs of the game system. Not surprisingly, retailer shelves were picked clean and the PS3s are now sold out at many of the stores who got the shipment.

Several GameSpot and Best Buy locations received approximately 10 systems each, however, instead of a heftier inventory expected of an all-out launch. Online vendors such as Amazon are listing the slim PS3 as being in stock, however, with 11 available as of press time. More shipments are expected next week, as originally promised. [viaPCWorld]
