People still reporting seeing and smelling smoke from Sony, so don't hold your breath about deliveries soon
Well there are some important notes:
Firstly, the destroyed building was a storage and distribution centre, NOT manufacture. 'All' Sony need is to rent some empty warehouse somewhere else, and they're back up and running without any trouble. Things will be slower as - presumably - it'll take time to re-establish automated systems etc, but nevertheless.
Secondly, they hold stock before it's delivered to the likes of HMV, Amazon et al. If you've ordered something from a retailer - and it's in stock - then it should be fine. Pre-orders and those sold out are the titles affected.
