PS3 Pre-Ordering: Round One

By hagrin - Posted on 10 October 2006

If you're looking to pre-order the PS3, I wouldn't bother researching much more at this moment. Gamestop and EB Games announced the following for their first round of PS3 pre-orders:

  • Starting 10/10/2006, pre-orders for the PS3 will be accepted at Gamestop and EB Games stores.
  • Most stores will be limited to eight (8) PS3 systems upon first distribution. Some high traffic stores could receive a double shipment.
  • Store employees are allowed to pre-order up to two (2) systems leaving only 6 for actual customers.
  • Pre-ordering requires a $100 deposit; however this deposit does not guarantee you a system at launch time due to "limited supply".

So, there you have it. Unless you run out tonight (or more like right now) to your local gaming store, chances are you're not getting your launch date PS3. Sony overpromised and underperformed with these launch numbers and many will miss out on obtaining a PS3 for this holiday season.

And we thought that Microsoft had supply issues with the Xbox 360 launch?
