Would any of you know any stores anywhere in the bay area that would have the PS3 slim available in 120 GB? I've been looking around for a little over a week now and all Gamestops, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and Frys are all out.

I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Best Buys are on order, so I don't know when they're coming. I work on Thursday, but I think they might hold them for Sunday's Ad. I saw one at Target in Fremont the other day, but it's gone. I would just recommend checking the stores every couple of days. No need to check Best Buy's cause every store in the Bay is out (unless they get a return).

why such a ps3 shortage? I couldn't find one either and i called around, but eventually found one two weeks ago. They told me they just received a new shipment when i copped it. PM me ill let you know where i got mine. Lurkers might snatch em before you get there

i just saw ONE at Target on Capitol Xpressway and Silver creek road...why the shortage though? i remember when stores were hoping they would sell 2 years ago but now im seeing these things fly off the shelves hahaha. reminds me of when the wii released and you can make a quick 150-200 over CL if u ever found one in stock

Basically just described my situation. I was really appalled to find so many stores sold out. The one I got 2 days ago was the last one at Wal-mart in Union Landing. Dont bother going to that wal-mart or Best Buy. Both are out.

The shortage started after the black friday sale. We had a bunch, but after they were gone, we never really got a huge shipment again. I would say a little before Christmas. When we do get them in, people buy them all cause they are hard to find, so we are sold out for another 2 weeks.

I don't know if we are holding them for the ad so just call if you're by one of these stores and ask if they are selling ps3's right now.
