IGN's Jim Reilly writes: The majority of online retailers have begun listing PlayStation Slim pre-orders in preparation for the console's launch on September 1st. But it appears many stores are unsure what kind of demand to expect from North American consumers.
Amazon's listing is limiting customers to one pre-order per household, saying the PS3 Slim is in great demand.
"As you may know, the PlayStation 3 120 GB is in great demand," the listing says. "In an effort to provide as many customers as possible with the opportunity to purchase PlayStation 3 120 GB, we are limiting the total number of PlayStation 3 120 GB units that can be purchased. As a result, each household may only purchase one PlayStation 3 120 GB unit."
