Since I go into work at 4 am , I can have my sweet lil hands on one as soon as I walk in the door. We will have at least a pallet of each probably, so come 10 am when the doors open- I become a customer and get it in line...how sweet is that !!

I talked to the guy at my EB Games. He told me he won't get any in at all. He also said "To be quite honest I would not buy one" I ask "Why" he then says "Well they don't have a system working with the blue ray" and "There are going to be alot of upset people" So I guess I am going to wait untill after they come out and the holidays to see if he was right..


Did they take pre orders?

Come across this on another board. The link that was for it redirects you to there home page so maybe they changed it but anyway this is interesting.

Looks like Walmart is gonna be selling PS3 alot cheaper then other places.

I saw someone on another board got in on this before walmart fixed their site. He called walmart.com and they made a note on his account honoring that price error . Lucky SOB :(

Sounds like a load to me. :( I called them about it to (to see if that meant they could preorder) and the lady wasnt too helpful at all. "Oh yeah. I can't click it. Um. Check back tomorrow, maybe?"

Mere speculation here, but my guess is that you can pre-order this Sunday in the store. You can also certainly bet that you won't be able to pre-order the system only. It will probably be a bundle with several games and/or accessories. Expect a cost of $800+.

I checked two near me today, one that is VERY busy all year round and one that hardly ever has more than 6 cars in the lot. Both told me they were aware of the "Big Book" info, but they would not be doing any pre-orders due to the fact they were only expecting 2 units. They also said they talked to the co. office and were told to put signs in the window that they would not be doing the pre-sell.:(

I believe I should call back tommorow. Or try another store. Sounds like my TRU may have been wrong. But only recieving one or two units?! That doesn't look good for us people attempting to camp out next month, does it?

No it don't. I talked to my BB and they might get 10 units that is both type the 20gb and the 60gb. So maybe 3-4 of them might be the 60gb i hope!!!

I just found out from a manager at Toys R Us, that our store is only going to have 7 PS3's. They are doing reservations for them this Sunday. That is our only TRU here.

I wonder if I'll be able to reserve one. Our store opens at 10a.m. and I bet people will be camping out. If the manager told me the info, he surely told others. It's gonna feel like bf in October.

I am thinking of waiting outside of Costco on launch date. Maybe it is wishful thinking, but I am hopeful that I wouldn't need to be there as far in advance like at BB, etc. Did anyone go this route for the Xbox 360 launch?

The TRU here is only having 5 and it took me and my friend to call different times to get that out of them. The one worker said they weren't doing a pre-order and then a lady in the background finally said to him that they were and that they were only getting 5 and that there is already going to be 100 people waiting in line....I think she was trying to discourage me from trying to get one by waiting in line. And it is going to be freezing cold here to wait in line outside, but I want to get one. I am still trying to decide on what time to get to the store to wait in line and also the time changes that night.

I just may park my butt outside before they close on Saturday and have my hubby and my foster daughter stand in line for me till 12am then releave one of them.. I am undecided:confused: Tina
