    they limit it so demand stays high and they can keep the price high. if everyone who wanted it got it right away then they'd have to drop the price to induce more sales and the stragglers would get a better price. if they have a steady stream of sales then everyone pays high

    My Econ teacher said that you can't increase demand by limiting supply.

    Oh no... There's no way i'm gonna be allowed to camp out...
    I preordered my game at my local gamestop, but now it doesn't look like that will be enough. I'm getting there at eight and getting in line! No way am I missing the game of the century!

    (Yay! My 50th post! 50 posts in 2 days- I have no life lol)

    no excuse for a game to have shortages unless the publisher is doing it on purpose.
