Seems like even Sony itself could have underestimated the initial interest in the recently announced Slim SKU of the Playstation 3. The new version of the console quickly became the #1 video game related item on the online mega-retailer Amazon.com, surpassing even the anticipated Halo: ODST and the new Wii MotionPlus. While Amazon hasn’t released exact pre-order sales figures, the Playstation 3 Slim page now sports a new purchase limit policy, which limits each purchasing household a maximum of one unit of the console. If this interest is any indication, the Playstation 3 could be set to have it’s best holiday season ever, and perhaps turn the tide of the much debated console war.

  1. Yeah I was actually REALLY surprised about this one. Only a few days listed and it’s the top selling product in video games on Amazon and at the game store where I work–zomg we’re getting calls every ten minutes asking about the PS3 slim–as if we didn’t have enough to ship what with all the other major releases this week.
