Amazon in the US has warned of shortages of the new slim PlayStation 3 when the system launches next month.
As a result, the retailer is limiting sales of the USD 299 console to one per household.
"As you may know, the PlayStation 3 120 GB is in great demand, and there are shortages of this product across the US," wrote the company.
"In an effort to provide as many customers as possible with the opportunity to purchase PlayStation 3 120 GB, we are limiting the total number of PlayStation 3 120 GB units that can be purchased. As a result, each household may only purchase one PlayStation 3 120 GB unit."
The move follows Amazon in the UK, which yesterday said there may be shortages of stock in the region, and is limiting the number of units to five per person
