Question for peeps that were around in 05 and 06. Was Gamestop accepting pre-orders right after the Ps3 and 360 launch shows?
360 launch was a clusterfuck. IIRC, they started taking pre orders pretty early and stopped taking them way too late. Stock was low everywhere, but GS screwed up big time because they had a bunch of pre orders they just couldn't cover.

Because of the issues during the 360 launch, they were a bit more conservative with the PS3 and waited till they had an idea of the stock they would have. They sent out an email to their stores on Oct 9th, preorders started on Oct 10th (between 8 ~ 16 units per store), and by noon in the west coast they had sold out of their stock and stopped taking pre orders. They still oversold their stock, but it wasn't anywhere as bad as the 360 (I had to wait a couple of weeks to get mine).

OK, managed to hack together a Kazified avatar using Paint.NET and Lightroom (I really need to get a copy of photoshop!)
