    From the district manager of EB, sounds as if out of the 15 to 20 preorders EB and Gamestop stores had, they're only going to beable to fulfill 5 of them. Something about Sony cutting back 3/4 of the first shipment.

    Sony no doubt is not ready to launch this system. Sounds like it could be the 2Q of next year before there's enough systems to keep up with demand. If not later, due to Europe getting their PS3s I believe in march.

    Mean while, Nintendo is spitting out 1 million units.

    Guessing a bunch of PS3 would have been buyers will buy a wii to pass the next 6 months before a PS3 hits the local stores.

    I'm pretty sure preorders get them no matter what since they pay money to hold them. They probably also cut back so they can get the bugs out for the 2nd shipment so there will be less dissapointed people.

    Then you're behind the curb.

    sounds like Sony will ship out about 170-180K units come this friday. VS the 1 Million put out by nintendo. I wonder how many X Box 360s hit the stores on day one.

    My two friends lost all 5 pre-orders they had. One was going to camp out at Best Buy or somewhere but there are already people camped out everywhere. And each store is only getting 10-20 systems so yea.

    More 360s went out then the PS3s they are sending out. I'm calling that the first one on ebay goes for $15k-$20k.

    I'd hope so since Sony isnt sending jack shit out the first day.

    The reps I've talked to said ebay was pulling Nintendo Wii and PS3 listings on ebay. Something about not being able to sell something over MSRP. weird touchy law stuff.

    We'll see, I've noticed at lot of the threads I've seen that had PS3 stuff on ebay has been pulled.

    I hear it's going to rain a lot in the next few days here.

    I checked ebay and PS3 and Wii preorders are listed with ease, the listings selling the sysyems as systems and not preorders seem to be getting yanked.

    I think it would be funny to see tons of people not being able to sale stuff unless walking around on foot selling to people door to door =)

    that'd rock!

    Yeah but I GUARANTEE that every single one will sell out. Also to mention they're only getting like 5-10 systems because that's probably all they can buy without getting a loan or selling body parts on eBay.

    hell i may just go to Wal-Mart when i get off work at 12:30 am friday morning to see the idiots buying those PS3 if they have em out by the time i get there.

    on a side note, there was a picture on the front page of the local paper here and it showed some people camping in front of the local Best Buy. said that some people brought a generator and hooked up a tv and an Xbox. i found that kind of amusing...people in line to buy a PS3 and are playing an Xbox while waiting.
