Hi, I don't think any company has their stock allocation numbers yet, but I may be wrong.

I went to my local Choices store just over a week ago and put a deposit down for the PS3. I'm 2nd on the pre-order list, so I would hope the shop will get at least 2 in on day of release.

I think this would be your best bet, at least you would know how likely you would be to get one.

Game are suppose to be releasing details next week of their pre-order system for the PS3 but they don't know what allocation of stock they have. I would avoid Amazon as the tend to mess up with pre-orders as with the 360 launch

Hi

Yup Game will release details next week however I am aware that they will take £150 deposit for the preorder.

It's £100 deposit and they are taking orders now. I got the phone call today. Reckon they are only taking deposits for next two days. I'm unsure whether I want mine now or not. Any one if there are gonna be shortages as I might sell it on?
#5
is that game??
#6
It certainly is.

I've seen a wesbsite that is taking pre-orders. But they are asking for £39.99 to secure it (which will be deducted off the bill once confirmed)

Might be worth a shot?

Thats not all Game stores though is it? As I just rang my local branch and they haven't started taking them until they know their allocation

Sony have announced that the UK will only be getting the 60gb option.

Choices have my order from weeks ago. Was £100 down. Choices are only selling the console only at £425. They reckon that Game, HMV and the like will only sell package deals (3 games included) which will take the cost up to around £550.

To be fair though with the release titles they have it wouldn't be too bad if you can pick your games, however if they come as a package then maybe just ordering the console from Choices is a safe bet.

i dont think there will be shortages for this, otherwise i would get one just to sell on. I mean its best to wait until it gets some decent games and maybe becomes a lil cheaper before buying the ps3 for keeps

I think following the 360 incident Amazon are a great bet as they seem to have learnt a good lesson from it. My Wii came on launch day no problems... but you have to be quick with your refresh/express checkouting.

I wouldn't be to sure about that as only 1 million ps3 will be released and will be divided between EUROPE on launch.

Look at the wii, sure they can't be out of stock for this long. They been grabbed and put up on ebay!

Im pretty sure ps3 will follow the same suit. Especially people have to money to stock up on the stocks and then flood it on ebay.

Although some buyers will hold out until proper games titles are released as their no games at the moment on the ps3 with the wow factor (like the zelda for the wii). The great thing about PS3 to Xbox 360 is that you don't have to pay to play online in another word 'pay to play'! No Money? No Fun at all!

I think you could be right there jg, especially if you have a look at this report.
