Stench said:K WHAT HTE HELL GUYS
IM SEEING THE WORD "CANADA" WRITTEN HERE A LOT ALL OF A SUDDEN AND I'M STARTING TO FREAK THE HELL OUT
The guy at one of the EBs I called was WAAAAAY too quick in his "No" reply as well, which makes things even more interesting...
Oh, thanks for clarifying.Bad_Boy said:
Why are you guys freaking out?Y2Kevbug11 said:My point exactly!
Nobody better ****ing camp out. I'm going first thing and I just need to be within the first 8 to preorder?
Unison said:NYC Gamestops seem to know nothing. They are probably lying. :lol
I bet no one in the city will get a system from one of those stores unless they have an in with an employee.
DarienA said:The Gamestop guy I spoke to was like... you're really like the first person I've told...and I got the impression he really didn't want to tell anyone and still couldn't figure out why he told me... uh.. wtf?
PhatSaqs said:Not guranteed?
WTF would be the purpose of first come first serve?
yeah, I got a call, but it was really strange.gamergirly said:I kinda got that too. One of the guys sounded like he didnt want to tell anyone. It was like he changed up his answer as soon as "PS---" came out of my mouth.

"Hello, this is EB Games. Since you preordered a game, we are calling to let you know that we are going to be opening preorders for, uhhhhhhhhh, ummmmm, the item, tomorrow at 10AM. It's $100 down. We are going to have 14, first come first served. So if you want to preorder......the item, come down early"
Never mentioned the word "Playstation". Could be the Wii for all I know...
BuddyC said:Confirmed here as well. Looks like I'm skipping my 10 AM class tomorrow, good thing she doesn't take attendance.

"Attn Store Personnell:
On Tuesday, OCT. 10th 2006, you will begin taking reservations on the Sony PS3 under sku xxxxxx (Premium) and sku xxxxxx (Core). YOU MAY NOT BEGIN TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR THE PS3 PRIOR TO OCT 10th, 2006! Reservations are to be processed on a "first come-first served" basis for your customers. Under NO circumstances are reservation "places in line" to be held for customers. Our online reservation program will be activated at a future date: online reservations will be available as "bundle only".
No forced bundles or any other customer "requirements" are allowed (our online reservation policy may vary). Reservations will be limited to one system per household (customer is allowed to reserve one PS3 and one Wii, if desired).
As these systems are in short supply and high demand, all stores are being allocated on their reserve quantity. Stores are not allowed to reserve above their assigned reservation allocation for any reason.
Your assigned allocation for the PS3 is x units TOTAL between the 2 system choices. You are only allowed to reserve x units TOTAL of PS3. No more than 2 of these systems can be set aside to be purchased by store employees.
