It is now 5pm Saturday the 11th of November in Japan. About 80,000 Japanese gamers are sitting now at home playing the PS3 until Monday, when they have to go to work or school again.

It will take a couple days until Sony will be able to say if the Sony PS3 sold out on launch day. The reports about buyer turn-out are mixed. At some stores the lines consisted of over 1,000 people. Several stores showed no line at all.
I think it is save to say that Sony will announce next week that the PS3 sold out on launch day in Japan. It is also not a big feat, because of the low number of available consoles. Reuters carries a Sony PS3 launch day report. Kotaku has several reports from locations through out Japan.

Kotaku also reports that the first US gamers that started to camp outside of a Best Buy in Burbank had been removed by Police. How uncool is this?
