Stupid UK Store Still Think PS3 is coming out November 17th

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."

Oh dear.

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.

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!
