Anybody want to hazard a guess as to what this is?
On the weekend at ps3forums.com I noticed some people said that they could pre-order PlayStation 3’s at Toys ‘R Us in Canada. So I sauntered (read: drove like a maniac) over to my local Toys ‘R Us, and sure enough, Saturday was the first day of taking pre-orders. I was actually the first guy to pre-order a PS3, they hadn’ even set up the sign yet. I saw the letters laid out for the sign, and interestingly, it said that you could pre-order both PS3’s and Revolutions! So all you Nintendo nuts out there, take note.
So they hadn’t set up the sign, and they hadn’t printed out the tickets yet either. So I waited around and chatted with the cashier about the PS3 while waiting for the manager dude to set me up. So I put my receipt and ticket in a very safe place for retrieval come this fall (hopefully). They asked for a $50 deposit, which they said was refundable if I decided to change my mind about the pre-order.
Anybody else pre-order their PS3 yet?
Contrary to rumours from analysts that the PS3 will be delayed to 2007, Sony has said that the PS3 will launch in 2006. Missing from the statement is the word “spring”. Hmmmm….
Sony officials have stated that the PlayStation 3 is still on track to be launched in 2006, despite widespread rumors reported elsewhere that the system would slip back to a 2007 date. The system made another non-playable appearance at the Taipei Game Show, where Sony Computer Entertainment Asia managing director Tetsuhiko Yasuda confirmed that while the system has no set release date or price yet, it will be released later in 2006. One thing that seems nearly certain, however, is that the system will not meet its original plan for a spring 2006 release, given that no playable games have yet surfaced.
But if you are into the golf thing, you might appreciate that Everybody’s Golf 5 will be making its way to the PS3.
