Anyone else ran out there early this morning to put down their $100 for a PS3 preorder at gamestop/eb?

I went to a bigger store that got more 360s than others at 8:30, but they said to only have 8 while I was 9th, almost offered some dude who said he's been in line since last night at 11 for the 4th spot and would have too except he backed out and wanted more money. Went to a smaller store and was 5th in line there, that much smaller store was taking 16, when I left at 10:35 they still had 2-3 spots, and many people who got turned down by near by stores were coming in. Paid my money but I guess I'll never be certain that I'll get one until I really do.

I think that price for a preorder is ridiculous. And only 8 per store?! It's better to just wait until after christmas.

If I preordered it, I would want to be certain that I am getting it, that is for sure. Sounds like it would be pretty chaotic to preorder it today.

I have not done any research on what games are going to be released with the launch, so until I do that I won't be preordering. It is the games that make the system great.

I think for those who really, really, really need to have the PS3 on Day One will either have been camping out at Gamestop for months to make sure they got on the list first, but for those who just read the newswire about GameStop's preorders will probably be hunting down every store in their area on Day One, if not Ebay. This is a worst launch than the 360. Even the GameStop near my house was able to get 75 Xbox 360 premium systems to cover the first 75 people on their preorder list on launch date.

preordering this to me is a major no. the price of it is way to high. i'll just wait for the price of it to go down alot before i consider picking it up, or unless there's a game on it i'll have to get.

I'll most likely wait for the first or perhaps even the second price drop before I even consider purchasing a PS3. Of course, a new Suikoden or Phantasy Star would likely sway my decision in various directions not terribly friendly to my wallet. As it stands right now, MGS4 is the first major game of interest for me, and that's not out for over a year, so...

Bah, I still say it's too expensive at a whole anyway. I'm gonna spend my money on a 360 or Wii, since they're a lot better.

Good man! Why buy one console when you can get two for the price of one.

I thought there wasn't as much hype around the PS3 to warrant a 90% nationwide sellout for preorders within an hour of the stores opening on a weekday when the cost is pretty high and the news came down late the night before.(my area was pouring down freezing rain too) there is also not one game I want to get when I pick up my system, but I guess either alot of people woke up early just to try to make some money reselling it or they really do want it that bad.

I got pretty lucky as I was all about to give up hope while sliding off the flooding road driving at 8 in the morning. Kind of feel bad for those that didn't catch a break and waited in the cold for longer than I did but got nothing to show for it, than again there were even luckier ones who walked into the store that had more supply after I freezed my ass off waiting 2 hours to pay for mine. I have no plans to sell mine if I get only one, but if there really are no good games at all, I might as well play it til a week before christmas and get rid of it expecting to get about 1k in return.

The thing is even if people were able to get to their neighborhood Gamestop and/or EBGames store to sign-up for a pre-order, it doesn't guarantee them getting one on launch day since most store will only get 8 or so units.

Blah! Forget PS3 for now, that wallet burning monstrosity! I'd rather buy a Wii and a bunch of games and controllers and other things. If anyone goes to YTMND, there's a neat little YTMND that talks about what you can buy for $599.



Look! It's Ridge Racer! Ridge Racerrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

Nah, I'm not too enthused or the PS3 and even if I were, don't have the budget for it anyway. I'll probaby eventually get it for Suikoden and possiby other RPGs, but the console I'm most excited about and my household's getting first is probably going to be the Nintendo Wii.

I never buy consoles right when they come out, especially 600 dollar consoles.

That is way too much money out of my pocket for an original model, which tend to always have something wrong with it, and tend to not last as long as future models.

I will probably wait a year or two until the console drops down to a more manageable price, and all the kinks have been fixed.

Or whenever a Suikoden game gets on there.

Possibly because not all consoles are the same, otherwise that statement woud work. There's no way in hell I'm getting a 360 after all the badmouthing Microsoft did, and the Wii seems too good to be true... there has to be a catch.
