I mean i saw it in this thread too within the first few pages or so, but going back and reading it again, i think its more about doubting how much of an impact the supply problems had on last week's sales (that its not a bigger reason for the lower hardware sales), not that its not an issue at all. And Famitsu and Media Create reported on it after this i think, so that might change what people initially though, so its fair enough :)I think that may have been two weeks ago, but I don't remember. Anyway, it is not available everywhere, but still available some places in some configurations. Like if I wanted to go out in the rain tonight I could buy a brand new PS4 (1TB) at the book store down the street which is open till 1AM. But I can't order one off Amazon. Anyway, Sony should have no problem sending some stock to Amazon, and Amazon doesn't have retail shelves, so the situation is a bit strange.
But yeah, its a strange situation. As someone else mentioned, an upcoming pricedrop and/or a new PS4 model might be a reason, but then i guess maybe we should have seen the same supply issues other places in the world as well, so its kinda strange indeed.
