Retailers Confident PS3 Will Sell Out in UK

UK retail stores are not only enthusiastic about the PS3, they believe that the PS3 will be a monster hit. Don McCabe, the managing director for the UK retail franchise Chips, told GamesIndustry “Microsoft is really pulling out the big guns, but it won’t change sale predictions for the PS3 due to the hearts and minds that Sony had already won over."

Lee Botham, of HMV, put it this way; "PlayStation 3 should still easily sell-through on the back of anticipated demand, which remains substantial, and on the general strength and appeal of its brand. [The FIFA games] should definitely act as a major boost to sales of Xbox 360 and underline its current position in the market. But there will be sufficient demand for PS3 for it to sell-through in the foreseeable future."

"PS3 could sell all it’s entire allocation – whatever that might be – three times over without a single killer game over the next twelve months,” said Steve O,Brien of Action Replay and the Gameshop stores.
