Demand for PS3 slipping?

by Saleem Khan, CBC News Online

Would-be profiteers are returning PlayStation 3s to stores after finding their ability to squeeze a torrent of profit on high demand evaporated following Sony's effort to keep a steady stream of consoles flowing to shelves.

In an article published before Christmas, Dana Brown of the Hamilton Spectator newspaper in Hamilton, Ont., wrote about a few people who were trying to unload their PS3s with no luck since a ready supply of the consoles were apparently available while Nintendo Wiis continue to be scarce.

The word schadenfreude comes to mind….
