Sony's Playstation 2 is finally available in the United States, but not online. The company is hoping to offset an initial shortage of available Playstation 2 units by delaying plans to offer the console for sale on its Playstation.com website. Sony will make the units earmarked for the web available to retailers instead. "By choosing to postpone the PlayStation.com e-commerce launch, we are demonstrating that our priority is to support our retail partners and, ultimately, consumers who rely upon their local storefronts to purchase PlayStation products," said Sony's Jack Tretton. Sony expects to ship a total of 1.3 million units in the next two months.
