    Looks like Sony are not able to supply the amount of consoles they re-asjusted only a short while ago :rolleyes: muppets.

    4 million by March ? I wouldnt like to take that bet....

    while not surprised, I found it kind of odd considering they had 89k units at Japan launch when they said they would have 80k (after dropping it from 100k). I had hoped maybe they got their asses in gear.

    Apparently not. Ah well, maybe PS3 will have to wait until they actually have stock and Wii+Zelda will be for me on launch.

    Well, if my store gets two I'm good to go (was second in line). Bad news for the ones that were at the end of the line for pre-orders though...

    Im that person, I was the last one in the pre-order list. I got the core pack though, so maybe they'll still get the core packages? People said that eb games are guaranteeing the pre-orders for their next shipment.

    This could be big troule for GameStop and EBgames.

    I wonder why Sony wouldn't fulfill it's estimated orders with GameStop rather than putting 25 in each BestBuy??? I would think they would meet what they told GameStop before sending them out to the big boy stores.

    Where did the 25 units per best buy rumor come from? Best Buy couldn't give me a straight answer, and the Target guy told me he knew for a fact Best Buy was getting 10 (8 premium, 2 20 GB).

    I know that Best Buy said that there'll be a minimum of 20 Premium and 6 Core packages per store. That was mentioned in their sunday ad in the newspaper.

    Thats what we're HOPING for.

    Knowing Sony, we'll probably get shorted a few. :/

    Anybody been called and told they would or would not be getting theirs. My brother got a call saying he would be getting his on Friday when they open. He was 1st in line though. I was 12th and I haven't received a call yet (different location by the way). I'm not to worried about it but I'm curious if anyone has been called.

    I just called my eb games where i have a pre-order. I was number 14 and had a pre-order for the 20gb. Guy said they'll be getting all the 20gb they anticipated but only half of the 60gb. So that means im a lucky sob!

    Different Best Buys will get a different amount. I worked for Best Buy during high school and college and was around for the Xbox launch and the Xbox 360 launch. Best Buy can look up how much they are getting at each store, but they have been told not to share that info. Just try to find someone thats gonna be really nice and ask him/her.

    Just got a call from EB games. They did not get enough to meet the pre orders however, they had 2 20 gb systems unclaimed. I told him I would call him back to let him know if I wanted one of those.

    They preordered 14 systems.

    I was number 9 and they got 8 systems. They also got 2 20gb systems and I was first on the que to call about not getting the one I wanted to so he offered me the 20gb. I don't know if I should get it or not!!!

    I agree that this could cause some serious issues over on ebay. A lot of people's receipt's said they were past the 10th spot in the line. It could be big time trouble on ebay.

    I'm still not sure if that guy was laughing at me or not.
