Woolworths in the UK is advertising the PS3 for a November 17th Launch, and actively taking preorders. The manager of one store says, I quote; "Word from head office is a delay is unlikely."
What's "unlikely" is that the idiots who are responsible for this debacle, will still have jobs in a month.
I think Woolworth (I think) is a US based company. And if the Woolworth UK folks are listening to corporate email or news letters. They are probably getting US information through their information distribution chains.
Plus, Woolworth last I check wasn't really known for being up on the gaming industry.
I'm a Sony fanboy and let me tell you this is how pointless all your flamming is MS fanboys, they don't even know it's been delayed, lol suckas!
This could just as well work against Sony. If I went into the store with all my cash on November 17th, and then found it's been delayed, I'd feel scorned and betrayed by Sony. I might even be tempted to pick up the 360 with my saved PS3 cash.
if you knew enough about the PS3 to have saved up $600 for one, then you should've already known about the delay. if you're an average-Joe shopper, who walked into Woolworth one day and said, "Hey, I have a measly $600 in my pocket. I Think I'll pre-order a PS3 with it." then chances are you won't feel betrayed once you find out its been delayed. ;) just kiddin with ya.
i live in a pretty substantial city in the US, and i haven't seen a Woolworths in about 15 years. anywho, unless Woolworths knows something no one else does, they're gonna have a butt-load of angry consumers come 11/17.
I thought Woolworth's went the way of the Dodo, like Montgomery Ward and Heck's, years ago.
Damn...are we showing our age? :| :(
I think Woolworths is owned by a US company. They killed the name off in favour for another one over there, and Woolworths was kept over here.
Like how your Wal-Mart is ASDA to us.
woolworths, Theyhave been out of business for mor then 10 years I think...
Apparently not and theres link http://www.woolworths.co.uk...
Well im sure this is going to be a sad Christmas for millions of people unless there not fanboys of course! I for one will be picking up Double agent, GOW, add RB6 which should hold me over fine for a good 4 months if not even more considering how fun the multiplayer is! I wonder how many reservations they have there set up for Nov.17th and feel bad for the people that are going to get caught up in all that mess!
This store manager proves it:
PS3 MAKES PEOPLE TOTAL MORONS!
Before you fanboys spank and spam me again... Ever heard of sarcasm? Guess not...
the pot and the kettle. how's that for sarcasm? ;)
hey mart, thats not sarcasm
Zyper and LandOfSand

Woolworths Head Office: "A delay is unlikely"
well i live in the UK and i managed to contact head office and interview woolworths managing director and this is what he had to say:
Ken Kuturagi - "The pwayastation thwee isa coming outa on november in whole world and evewyone will buy. Teh Cell isa powering all of woolworth computer system and you buy ps3"
I came to the conclusion this was why they still thought it was coming out in november
who wants a delaystation anyway at that price.sony are the worse company ever.
OMG .... you guys still have that store ???
That is funny !!
I must be confused with another Woolworths
I know this is mentioned above, but i am just as "WHAT THE F" when I hear that name.
TO FUNNY .... REALLY !!!!
Unprofessional article title. "Game Journalist"? Really?
I never wrote such a thing on the actual story... just on N4G. All about getting people to click and read. Like sensationalist tabloid headlines.
Knowing you AP you would be stupid enough to waste your cash on a 360 when all this time you saved that much money to get a PS3 and not wait 4 more months.
When clearly Microsoft is the worst software ever and Mac is cause Microsoft copied Macs idea of the software and plus Microsfot sucks at making game consoles.
