Best Buy: No PS3/Wii Pre-Orders

Best Buy confirmed this week that they will not be taking pre-orders for the PlayStation 3 or the Wii. A company spokesman told me earlier this week that Best Buy has decided they would rather just sell both consoles on launch day because it's more exciting that way.

The story is too old to be commented.

...maybe I'll camp out and get a PS3 and then sell it on ebay. Then again, I should save my sick day for camping out for the Wii since I actually want to own that one at launch.

I've been thinking about using one of my sick days for camping out and actually playing it at launch. :)

I'm pre-ordering my Wii @ Gamestop. Perhaps I'll camp outside of Best Buy anyways on PS3 launch day and sell it on ebay.

The guy at Gamestop told me they are going to be getting tons of them and that there is a very small chance of being a shortage. Nintendo is making them by the truck loads and he said you'll be able to walk in and get one.


if you guys going to camp out ... do it in a sony oficial store like the one in manhattan they will have at lease 50 or 100 ... i got my PSP there and they make a party and all free

I really wish they had one here, I'd go in and drool at all the TV's and the Vaio laptops. My in-laws have one of the new Vaio laptops (not the one with the Blu-ray drive) and it's great. Very stylish and light. Only thing I don't like about it is that the speakers are pretty quiet.

Last year for the 360 a women told me she was at Sam's and that the guy rolled out a pallet of 360's and then cut the wrapping and suddenly everyone went nuts grabbing them. She said she grabbed one and then another women took it from her hands. She said she grabbed another one and some guy tackled her around the ankles the Security Guards had to pull the guy off of her. He was arrested for assault, all because he wanted a 360.

...yeah, those assault charges were dropped, I pleaded temporary insanity :)

Yeah this kind of crap happens, especially when parents are trying to get the things that their children want the most for christmas. Remember how bad the cabbage patch kids and tickle me elmo crazes got?

It'll happen, you can bet on it. I'm hoping to be ok at Best Buy or maybe Sam's Club.
