And yes now they have ended, sorry folks its almost 1:00pm on Tuesday, and most of all Gamestops and EB's were sold out after the 1st hour. Call up your local Gamestop/EB NOW!#@ http://www.gamestop.com/gs/ps3/sweepstakes.asp
2 PRemium ps3's for me and 1 for my brother. :) WOOT NOV 17, is almost here!!@#
3000 on Ebay here I come. Yes. Should I get another 1080p tv? Get another Car? I'm so excited. I hit the Jack Pot.
When i get one im selling it on Ebay as well, then when like march comes around, ill buy one for me. Its better to gain some money than lose it, and there are stupid ppl out there that will pay anything for it. So im putting it at around 1500 bucks and comes with RFOM. but you see ive got 6 bubbles now, im so excited. PPL actually sometimes care about what i say, this site is amazing and all you guys who gave me pos. feedback, you guys are pimp.
i have 3 handy that means 9000 for me!@#$ hahah but no i'll only sell one
They could only take 15 pre orders and only 9 including mine was pre bought at store opening. I thought there would be long lines of people. But no...Just me and 8 other guys. 4 of the 8...including me...said they were going to sell it on EBAY. Where are the hardcore sony fans? Are their any left besides on this site? Maybe everyone just didn't know about it. I remember the first day I pre ordered my 360's...there were over 50 people in line before the store opened. Just to place a pre order. And its the same store i went to this time. Interesting indeed.
Sounds like you guys had it easy. At our gamestop the line reached closer to 50 people and there were only 16 reserve spots. I was glad I got out of there with number 11, I'm sure it got pretty bad or something. Only 2 of the 16 people that actually got preorders said they were probably going to sell theirs on ebay, but they both said they could wait until march to get a ps3 if that meant making $2500 in November. It seemed like only a couple people even knew they would be taking preorders. Most people who got in line (and didn't get a preorder unfortunately) just saw the line, found out it was for ps3s, and jumped in.
I've got to admit I was suprised by the lack of a crowd. I got there at 9:30 and secured one, my brother went to a different location at 9am and he was first in line.
And out of the eight people in line, half were already planning on reselling the thing.
This was not as hardcore as the 360 pre-ordering. It will be interesting to see what happens come release day. Will there be campers? Massive ebay sales? From what I saw today, it almost felt like there were already too many of them.
ITS SOO GOD DAMN MUCH MONEY. I mean im not complaining cause i will be getting oe and so will some of my friends, but to ask for the type of crowd to just walk in and say "yeah i wanna pre-order for this 600 dollar PS3, I may lose my job and my house over it, but its a PS3". Like honestly. I on the other hand think that is kind of lame, that ppl think 600 is a lot of money for a gaming console, because look at your computer and it was probably more than a grand and what do you use it for besides playing PC games and going on the internet and google searching for homework. MY PSP does that and so will my PS3, and its cheaper than a grand. But its just when you look at ppl in general and not hardcore gamers, there will be no line-ups or rushes to get a PS3 just because of the price(again im not saying that for me, im saying that for everyone who is not a gamer and who is a parent that would not spend that kind of money on a system).
The price and the fact that it's pretty common knowledge that there will be only 400,000 avaiable in North America kept the lines relatively short.
ya i was out waiting in my car in front of the store for like 2 hours ahead of time because i remember how bad it was when the ps2 was coming out so i was prepared, but there was only 3 of us there, oh well though, i still got mine secured for launch with resistance and i'm happy
And the clerk asked me if I wanted to preorder a ps3, he said there was two left, he also had a big sign saying "No More Orders Please" but couldnt put it out because he still had two units left.
I told him I would wait.
i would do the same, but did the 360 sell out as fast as the ps3, like in 1 hour as this article states?
Yah boy i just sent by girl and her friend to EB to pick up two PS3's, EBAY here i come. She said they had 7 of them left. I was in disbelief.
Most people who are pre-ordering are looking to hit the jackpot on ebay. And everyone will try to get one at launch to sell on ebay. I would love to get a hold of a few to sell on ebay even though i have no interest in them.
You said it buddy. I have no interest in Sony's exclusives or Blu-ray.
The ps3 is going to Flop. Just from what I have read here and from what I saw this morning at my Local EB. It seems like many people that are pre ordering the ps3 don't even want it. They want to make a quick buck. Whats that about folks. I mean, even me. I just want to put mine up on Ebay. But where are the millions and millions of Sony fans that can't wait to get their hands on a ps3? I'm a little confused. I just knew that there would be lines of people outside the store. But no...only a few people. And most of us just wanted to sell ours. Wierd. As much as I think the ps3 is overpriced and blu ray is not needed. I never imagined that there might not be a lot of demand for it like I anticipated. I remember pre ordering the 360 and it was bananas...this was calm compared to the 360 pre orders. I don't know. I hope I can make a profit on my ps3. I'm a little worried now.
You're saying that the PS3 is going to flop because most of the people pre-ordering them are going to sell them on E-bay for a crazy profit? It seems to me that when demand for a product is so high that people are willing to pay 3-4 times the retail price for it that could be considered a success. They will sell on E-bay for thousands...I'd bet $600 on it if the wife would let me. Don't worry, with less than 400,000 released to the public in America you'll make your money.
Not really it just means that theres super Sony fanboys that will do anything to get one. You know, the kind of young fan that thinks game console's are much more than meer toys.
