With the recent earthquake disaster in Japan followed by a devastating tsunami and the constant threat of a radioactive fallout, Sony’s closure of their factories have caused shortage of supplies worldwide, especially when it comes to professional media. Among them include Sony’s own Blu-ray drive pick-up heads, as those manufacturing plants are still out of operation. This will definitely affect Sony when it comes to having adequate supply for its PlayStation 3. As for Nintendo, their recently launched 3DS does seem to be negatively affected as well, since monthly sales in Japan dropped from 200,000 units originally to less than half – this could also be due to the fact that people there have other things to think about right now than gaming. On the other hand, perhaps they can hide or bury the pain through games?
