Pre-order a PS3 for £150 in the U.K.? | PS3Blog.net
In theory a store would get say 50 PS3s & the first 50 people that pay the deposit of £150 would get a PS3 at launch as long as that store gets those 50 PS3s.
If I remember correctly Sony did a similar thing for the PS2 but through Sony themselves & it didn’t cost you £150 to guarantee yourself a PS2. I can’t remember exactly what Sony did with the PS2 launch because I picked mine up from a shop.
I think it’s an excellent idea & it would mean the people that pre-ordered first would stand a very good chance of getting a PS3. Any ideas that prevents the PS3 launch from mimicking the terrible 360 launch is a good thing in my book.
