    Does anybody know of any stores that are accepting official pre-orders yet on the PS3?
    All I have seen is FYE, they are taking 50 dollar pre-orders. Gamestop and EB are yet to start.

    Anybody?

    When I asked about Wii/PS3 pre-orders at EB, they said the company as a whole is planning to wait until a month or 2 prior to release. They don't want to duplicate the 360 fiasco again. Online retailers may have pre-orders available before then, so you may need to keep checking places like amazon.

    From what I've heard via the rumour mill, neither will be officially taking pre-orders until October at the earliest.

    The latest rumors suggest that the Wii will be released on October 2nd, at a price point of $149. If that is true (probably not), then pre-orders would need to start in August, at the latest.

    The link refers to the story over at PlanetGameCube.com, which is a very reputable Nintendo fansite/forum.

    That would be awesome if the Wii is released in October and will only be $149!

    I think I'm going to pass on the PS3. The games coming out for the 360 kick the PS3's ass! Plus there is no way I'm spending $500 or $600 just for a console.

    149? wow, that would be amazing. They would be giving it away.

    and yeah, I keep hearing october as well for the ps3 pre-orders for gamestop and EB. I am on two lists at fye's, number 14 and 27. Little hopes with such high numbers for the first month at least I think

    Honestly, that's exactly how I feel about it. I'm excited for the Wii, actually, especially if its as affordable as the rumours indicate that it might be, and it's got Zelda and Metroid and all sorts of goodness in the pipeline. But, honestly, as much as i love the Final Fantasy series, I'm not dropping $600 on a console to play it. I'm just not. Maybe once the price comes down some in future.
