* DS, PSP to be in short supply on launch

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Mobile gaming (GBA/etc) has the story: apparently both the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP are going to be in short supply on launch.

Nintendo's seeing higher than expected demand; Sony's pulling their PS2 trick and deliberately undershipping to make the console appear sold-out.

Both Nintendo and Sony are anticipating short supply of hardware when their new handheld consoles launch, it has emerged, with the PSP likely to suffer most as only 200,000 units will be available on day one.

Nintendo has seen demand for the DS rise to around double the expected level, with pre-orders for the console currently standing at two million units, leading to a third factory being brought online to manufacture the console.
