EBGames PS3 Pre-Order in Canada! |

EBGames will be taking pre-orders for the PS3 and Wii on Monday October 16th. Thanks to Tom for pointing that out. And if any of you are in Ottawa, don’t get there before me!

$50 in trade or $200 in cash will be the required deposit!

I just called an EBGames store, and the lady said that they’re just finding out about it now, so this is news to them as well. Tomorrow they have a conference call where they find out more details.

EBGames Canada Pre-Order


  1. I’ve just got a call from your boss, Henning. He says you have to travel to the Himalayas on Sunday night and you won’t get back until Wed afternoon.

    Man it’s a tough life…


  2. Nash! I’ll kill you! Gaaaarh!

    Hmmm… any wifi hotspots in the Himalayas?

    I think the Wii preorders start the same day in Canada.

  4. WonderSteve

    Thanks Henning. I am definitely going to get both that day

  5. ehandlr: That’s what I said! πŸ™‚

  6. ehandlr

    whoops..that what I get for speed reading…or lack there of. sorry about that.

  7. Good luck Canadians! It was insane in the states so get out your camping gear if you really want one. They should have the same amount per store I would think which is not a lot.

  8. I wish all the PS3 Gamers in Canada luck monday

  9. Good luck everybody and share your tales of joy/woe after you’re done.


  10. should i make the 3 hour trip to canada?

  11. I say: maybe!

    They are already taking Wii pre-order at Zellers in Canada. No word on PS3 yet. I was at EBGames on Merivale tonight here in Ottawa, I was told to be there very early monday if I want to get one. They will know tomorrow (Friday) on much unit are available for pre-order.

  13. Luke it depends on how badly you want one. I honestly believe that the PS3 is going to see poorer numbers than the 360 did (shipment wise). Add to that the PS3 has a larger fanbase and you could be looking at 6 months until they are available at stores. Sony will not release any numbers of what they are making and shipping until after the fact. Hopefully Sony can make a decent amount of systems. The problem is the laser diodes needed for the Blu-Ray player. I think there is going to be a shortage for a long time which means a shortage of PS3s for a long time.

    The other option you have is launch day camping out. I would think the lines will be ridiculous but going a full day in advance would secure you one. Good luck either way.
