PS3 Pre-Orders Sell Out. Launch Mania in Full Swing! |

All Gamestop stores sold out shortly after accepting PS3 pre-orders in North America. Everyone has been expecting a sell out on launch day, especially with only 400K units, so this isn’t surprising at all. But this does serve as a reminder that launch mania is finally in full swing. It is now exactly one month to the Japan launch and slightly more to the North American launch.

Personally, I have no expectations of getting a PS3 in November. As much as I want the PS3 and as great as I think it will be, I just don’t mind waiting two months or so to get mine.

What is exciting in the near term is that we should see PS3 demo kiosks in North America very soon. Demo kiosks are typically seen before the system launches and there’s not much time left. I can’t wait to actually see and play a real PS3.

Congratz to our readers who managed to get a pre-order!

  • I don’t know how it was possible, but I pre-ordered my PS3 in March 2006. I guess the guys at the local game store just made a list. Cool fact: I’m #1 on the list πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    So somewhere around march 2007 I’ll be smiling, sweating, shaking and emotionally unstable, while unwrapping my newest aqcuisition.

    I’m so ready for the PS3, “Bring it on!!” is a famous quote that comes to mind πŸ™‚

  • I was luckily in line 1st yesterday so I have my 60 GB PS3 pre-ordered and fully paid for πŸ˜€

    #4 and ready to go. I went to put 100 bucks more on the PS3 but I forgot I had to pay off my FFXII collectors edition game and strategy guide :(. So that is paid off.
