I've heard eBay is currently banning PreOrder Auctions? Don't know if this is true or not? If it is it makes no sense, I thought eBay was a business?

With console releases too many people were putting up auctions for them that never actually had access to the consoles, so a lot of people were scammed out of money. Ebay is a business, that's precisely why they aren't letting people sell something they do not yet possess.

You guys are lucky. They don't come out until December here in NZ and are starting out at $1400 a pop.

I am going to buy two of them if I can get my hands on them. One for me, and one to sell. If I can sell the first one for a lot I will sell the other one also and just way a while for another shipment. I talked to one of the guys from EB games though and he said anyone that pereorders one will get it so they may not sell for crazy prices if that is the case. I guess will have to wait and see.

I have a question... Everyone I know (even the hardcore of Sony fans here at work) says, "I'm gonna wait till the price drops, then I'll get one".... WHO THE HELL IS ACTUALLY GONNA BUY THIS THING ON LAUNCH?

Besides Wevie of course.

:lol: I always have to chuckle when I hear people say that they're gonna wait for the price drop. Cause typically thats like 2 years down the road. No offense to anyone just sounds like some people expect the price to drop in 6 months. Never know though, with PS3 being so much they may drop it sooner than expected.

Does anyone know if there will be a PS3 version of Madden07?

I'll be buying the PS3 on November 17th when it comes out, waiting overnight at the store if I have to. And I really want Madden07 (Culpepper's commercial got me, damn EA marketers), but I can wait for a PS3 version if there is going to be one.

I actually don't think GTA4 will be big at all. San Andreas is actually (size of content on the disc wise) one of the smaller Xbox games. 2GB to be exact. They biggest shortcoming I can see with something cross platform like GTA4 is the fact that they have to make it work for the 360, then up-it to play on the PS3. Xbox got plagued like this for years *cough* Madden *cough*.

True


Gran Turismo and MGS could definitely benefit greatly from the added HD space.

I plan on getting a ps3 when it si easy to go. The price tag is high, but if I still have my job or become a perm that is either a one month of saving or two months (with paying other bills and fun stuff).

600 dollars does seem to be alot but I am excited about the blu-ray and the wi-fi. Next thing I need to get is a wi-fi router ;)

PS3 Distribution Trouble?
CNBC Financial reports possible problems with manufacturing.
by Jeff Haynes (http://ps3.ign.com/email.html)

August 23, 2006 - PS3 consumers may want to try to reserve their pre-order a bit faster than previously thought, according to CNBC Financial News. In an earlier reported bombshell, CNBC Financial News reported that the stock of Sony fell 3.1% to 44.42 dollars a share based on the news from Mitsubishi UFJ that Sony might not be able to produce 6 million units of the forthcoming PS3 as previously reported at E3. According to the report from the company, Sony would not be able to meet its estimates for the fiscal year. Instead, Sony is projected by the group to produce about half, or 3 million units, of the next generation system.

While the information seemed to affect stock prices of the company itself, there was no independent verification of the potential lack of systems on store shelves from Sony itself as this story went to press. As many gamers are aware, the PS3 will launch in Japan on November 11th and in North America, Europe and Australasia on November 17th. We'll have more on the story as it develops.

interesting

Depending on where that 3 million is spread out, thats plenty. If thats 3 million for just the US there will be more than enough, especially at $600. 360 didn't have nearly that much at launch if I remember correctly. Now if thats 3 mil worldwide, thats a different story.

3 million units world wide is a pretty shy number when compared to their initial promises. 3 million for the US should be pleanty. I think there'll be shortages no matter how many they have. So the more Sony makes, the better.
