Yesterday I was walking through a mall in Kuwait City and went into a Virgin store here and saw PS3 after PS3 for sale!
Both 60GB and 20GB models.
They were even running their own homebuilt demo stand with a HUGE HD TV playing some sort of NBA game.
No shortages here at all. They even had all the launch games. Even saw one Kuwaiti buying one, but it looks like it's not catching on here in this oil-rich country where people DEFINATELY have the money to buy it.
Of course, since the Kuwaiti Dinar (KD) is much, much stronger against the US Dollar, the prices after conversion were about double to triple what they are in the US.
So...umm...no shortage here. I'm still not buying one.
I think I'll look for the Revolution next...
