Sony Cuts Japan Launch Quantities

Kotaku reports that Sony has cut the originally-7-figure, then 6-figure, launch quantity of PS3's in Japan to a wimpy 80k units.

Kotaku points out that retailer Yodobashi Camera is not taking pre-orders in order to avoid angry mobs, but I think this is incorrect. The Akihabara Yodobashi Camera store could easily contain an 80,000 person queue without leaving a single person in the rain, and IIRC, has an entire floor just for angry mobs. :-)
