Lots of discussion about this over at the AVS forum...apaprently, there are already folks in line - right now!



Good luck!

Wish I could do some camping - but I just don't have it in me for this launch...

*** MODS: Could you please edit my title to correctly state "Toys R' Us"
Thanks...

That doesn't look like a Toys 'R' Us store in the U.S. Looks like a picture from a store in Japan to me.

It could very well be...I took the image from the avs fourm thread and didn't really look at it that hard (until now).

Still, from what I have heard...most of the stores have lines now...

I'm still at home

FYI: TigerDirect.com has them on their website right now

PlayStation 3 Console 60GB (YYD1-98000) for $696.99

*** $97 OVER MSRP ***

I'm not sure how legit this is...but it let me (and many others) order...
$696.99

I figured it was worth a try - but I seriously doubt these will ship. But maybe


Reorts on some of the PS3 / Preorder forum discussions are all over the place, so I'm not sure what to believe really...some folks are saying it was a mistake, some are saying it's legit...some ordered 10 or more...some are saying that reps are saying only one per household...so, like I said...maybe worth a shot, maybe not...don't blame me if you don't get one

I guess it wasn't worth a try after all


Tiger Direct has cancelled a huge amount of the orders, (Including mine)

It did get me a 10% coupon though
Not that I will use it...

I wish I had known about this little detail before I went to line up at 8 (needless to say, I struck out
). I was hoping that most of the people ahead of me were there for T.M.X. Elmo (the couple behind me were, and the family in front of me were there for the Wii). Guess I'll just have to wait....
