I just called amazon at 1-800-201-7575 and asked if this item was sold out and he said it is not available yet. I asked if it was in stock and just sold out, it took a minute to find that out but he came back and said it was NEVER in stock with amazon.com.

Sorry Fony fandroids, not today!

For preorder they do the same thing as normal order. Normally, they have just so many in stock and when they run out they are not available. For preorder, they ordered just so many to be delivered on release date, and when the number of preorders go beyond that, it is no longer available for preorder.

The 40GB was available for preorder just a few days ago. I think the question you should have asked is why it was available for preorder before and not anymore. Obviously, its not in-stock when its on preorder.

Really? Being a fanboy is so important to you that you found Amazon's number (not easy to do) and called them to check on the sales of a unreleased console? That's sad.

@1.4 - lol, actually thinking about it makes me laugh.

Blitzed3621d ago (Edited 3621d ago )

You were that threatened by this news that you went and phoned Amazon?!
LMAO! It was so quick that your reaction can only be described as panic. You need to get a life dude. Don't worry, no matter what happens with the PS3 sales, no one is going to take your Xbox away. Now go to your Xbox, hold it tightly and let it know that everything is going to be alright.

HarryEtTubMan3621d ago

Dude you are so terrified hahahahaha. I think that was serisouly hilarious... all the xbomb lovers took my bubbles can you help? and take his while ur at it for trying to ruin a perfectly credible post...

ARBitrator3621d ago

Why would someone spread bad information like that, just plain dumb. I checked with Amazon also and the item isn't available yet, besides it this were true I'm sure it wouldn't be ranked at 297 on the Amazon PS3 charts.

@eLines

I dont undestand how Bloodmask sees this as spam, get outta here with that crap, if you dont like postive PS3 news dont even come in at all and check, you stay with your system, thats what I do, its not that hard, you dont have a PS3 you should talk crap about it what so ever, just like I at the moment dont have a 360 so I dont talk crap about it.

Not surprised this is what has been happening in the UK since last week, they've hit the right price now where people will pay it...

Hugh Hefner3621d ago

90% of sales in the UK have been of the 60g PS3, not the 40g. The PS3 has always sold relatively good at Amazon, because it is more portrayed there as a Blu-Ray player. Therefore, a $399 Blu-Ray player is a steal.

Having said that, Amazon trends do not reflect overall retail sales, and counts for less than 1% of total hardware/software sold. During July the PS3 was always outselling the 360 at Amazon, and we all know who came out on top (the 360 did for all of you noobies). Wait for November NPD, and see which console will come out on top. My bet is on the 360.

All i can say is wow!! this is further proof that the only thing holding back the ps3 was indeed its price. Demands for the ps3 is high.

plus people have got to experience games like warhawk now where I know 2 people who have brought one since, the game is so amazing online split screen with mates...

SmokeyMcBear3621d ago

ha yeah.. warhawk is awesome.. the best thing about it.. so you are sitting at home playing the game online (unranked server)... and you are killing, talking smack, having fun. then a buddy drops by, sits down on the couch.. picks up a controller, presses the ps button, and bam.. he's in the game.. no getting out, no waiting for game to be over, no signing out and signing back in, like some other consoles, just push a button and play.. now that is next gen gaming.
