Seems as if the Playstation2 console is disappearing from local shops, here in Phoenix AZ as reported by a friend on another board.
Loy here from our board also confirmed stock issues in his area, also we received some responses from Pennsylvania and England what I ask is you post on what's going on in your area, so we can find out What the heck is going on. :)
Phoenix, AZ - The Playstation2 game consoles have dissapeared and NONE of the stores have gotten any in for nearly 2-3 weeks now. Sources say that Sony has been having stock issues while other sources claim a certain "individual or group" has been going around town buying up all ps2 units.
My guess is they're having difficulties keeping stock because of the price drop.
