You're right. I COULD be more wrong. But I'm not, because I'm right. Think back to any console release at a major holiday season. Frantic parents in line fist fighting for a console for their kids. Those aren't early adopters: they're the average idiots who are giving in to the demands of their kids who probably don't know what 'early adopters' are. The extremely limited PS3 supplies for the US release dampened the response from those particular spenders, so it was mostly just the hardcore in line waiting for one. As supply picked up, they didn't see the demand that the 360 and Wii did following the christmas rush. PS3s were sitting on shelves. Sure, plenty were moving, but at a way lower volume.
