    Ad Playstation 3 Releasing on 11/17

    Sony Playstation 3 is launching tomorrow (11/17). Many stores will start giving out numbers early or even start selling at 12am. Only 400,000 units are produced for the US at launch date so supply definitely does not meet demand.

    Many people have already started camping outside Bestbuy / Circuit City / etc.

    - PS3Seeker.com is a great site to see the stores that have them available near you.
    - 60GB PS3 will cost $599.99 and 20GB PS3 will cost $499.99
    - Double check /w the store on how many they have and if it's a bundle set. Many stores will bundle it with games/accessories and overprice it.
    - Drive around to find a store that where line is shorter than how many they have and camp out

    - Robberies and riots are happening. Be careful everyone!

    lol it has gotta be less than 20. if theres only 400000 systems launching, and given the massive amount of walmart stores, they would probably have every single ps3. i bet the number is more like 4-8 at the most.

    From what I've heard, Sony cut back production and the U.S is only recieving a little under 200,000 units.

    They said on the news today that the Circuit City stores here only got 6 each and one Best buy did get 26.

    I was at Circuit City a couple days ago and they had a sign saying that the PS3 with the 20gb is not going to shipped out yet.

    Have you seen the prices for it on Ebay? It's crazy.

    Lots of people in line are tip-toeing around the local rules to stay there.

    Some of my friends are in line at the local Best Buy, and they have to follow a lot of rules.

    My friend's sister works for sony in the PS3 distribution division. She said Sony only has 150,000 units for launch day. Most of the major stores will be at most recieving 12 units combined of the 20gb & 60gb. Sony employees arent even getting hooked up.
