    I was shopping this past Thursday, June 1st, and saw a sign up for pre-orders on the PS3. I had to put $50 down, but I put a reserve on one of the 20GB and one of the 60GB. Wasn't able to get more info other than that they would be out 3rd week of November.

    :D

    Whats the price?
    I dont think ill get one, ill stick with computers :)
    Is it true that the ps3 can play blu-ray movies?
    If so, it might be worth getting simply for the blu-ray movie player

    The 20GB will be 400 and the 60GB will be 500 from what I was told. I put 50 down on each to reserve them :)

    Thanks for the info KC - I'm searching for the CDN equivelant. I will most likely have to wait for this preorder thing, we always get stuff slightly later than our American brothers.

    At an elevated price too. Even though the Canadian Dollar is stronger than ever. I might attempt to buy one in Michigan instead of Ontario. But it's too damn expensive. I'd rather use $659 Canadian + taxes on auto insurance.

    I'll likely end up waiting until 2008 to get a PS3. FFXIII probably won't be out until then...heh.

    I haven't seen any pre-selling, most places are on a strict first-come-first serve basis.

    That being said, I am now up to 8 on the pre-order :D

    I am within the top 24 for all 8 too, I have a good shot at getting some ;)

    Put them on ebay... I'm sure you've seen the prices on the 360 5 days before they came out. What about 5 months:laugh:

    Why not? You put down 100 bucks didn't you? Get the reciept of the payment, and basically sell that and the difference with a reserve of the total amount...
