Limited PlayStation 3 Pre-order GameStop and EB Games will begin accepting limited pre-orders for the PlayStation 3 console on Tuesday, October 10, on a first come, first served basis. Due to extremely limited supply, we expect to deplete this allocation very quickly, most likely in minutes. We will not accept additional pre-orders at this time. To avoid an unnecessary trip we strongly recommend you call your local store to determine availability. A $100 reservation deposit is required, which can be funded with cash, credit or trade. As we cannot control production and shipping issues by the manufacturer, a reservation deposit does not guarantee receipt of a system available to purchase at launch. Reservations/Purchases are limited to 1 per household.

I just called my local Gamestop and verified. He said they will open at 10 in the morning and you cannot call and give them a cc over the phone you have to drive over there. BLAH. This is according to him basically a hold your spot in line kind of thing. So you do not have to camp out the day before. The deposit holds the spot of the first 8 people in line on the actual release date. The same info is at www.gamestop.com

I didn't either Pam. Scrambling at the moment to get everyone dropped off earlier than usual to school so I can go get in line. Don't see how I can be there before 8 ... seriously hoping that is early enough. :(
Here's there link of Wii http://www.gamestop..../wii_signup.asp

Thanks for the info. I have been thinking about this all night and I do not think I am going. I don't see me being one of the first 8 in line so it isn't worth it imo to drive 30 miles there and 30 miles back to find out that info. Just plan on being at Walmart at least the afternoon before so I am one of the first in line lol.

I went to the local mall and low and behold I was the first in line. When the mgr got in, she could only do 5 reservations slots SO I lucked out. On my way out the Burlington coat factory had some Elmo TMX. Grabbed one. Today was my lucky day.

I got one at our local EBGames today! I was so excited. They had 14 preorders they could take, I was number 14. I'm guessing they were one of the stores that was getting 16 and a couple of employees snatched up the other 2.

They were taking orders for both, I opted for the premium system, which was $100 more. But considering what extras it came with(MemoryStick/SD/CompactFlash Slots, WiFi and the 60gb hard drive), I thought it was worth it.

When will Best Buy, Target, and Walmart start preorders for the PS3 if they do? I missed this morning's preorder at Gamestop since I was at work and just heard about it this morning. Maybe once I know the future dates of preorders, I can take a morning off work.

I'm not sure about BB and Walmart, but I know for the XBox 360 target took no pre-orders. It was a wait in line and hope you get there first kinda deal.

I was just flipping thru the channels & on tech tv I beleive it was they was talking about PS3 & people pre ordering, putting a 100 deposit to get one & said even if you do this, there is no guarentee you will get one. I dont know if this is true or not but just reporting what I heard on the tv.

I asked yesterday at Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, none of them will be doing pre-orders. According to Target, they won't know how many they are getting until a day or two before they go on sale and they aren't allowed to give out that info. Best Buy told me they would MAYBE be getting 10, if they were lucky. The guy at Walmart just looked at me like I had 6 heads and had no info at all.

Haha, I work 3rd shift at Target and I was leaving the morning before at 7am and there was already a line out there, so those people had to of been out there for 24+ hours waiting for the Xbox 360.
