    Tomorrow is the day (tuesday). Wii is later.. not sure how many they have, will find out later...they aren't making you trade in $50 of stuff for a reserve either.

    ssshhhhh keep it down or you're going to have to get up early and wait outside the store!

    haha....I am going to be one of those jerks I envied last year with xbox, and I'm going to preorder one just to sell...and get my girlfriend to do it too.

    So worth it...people were selling xbox's for over 2 grand last year. Some went for ridiculous amounts...i wondered how legit those were.....5000-8000.....how is that possible when there were others going 10 minutes later for 2000-3000. That was so weird on day one..but I'm not missing it this year.

    Just called my local GameStop and they don't know when pre-orders will begin.

    I just visited mine and asked and got the same response. I think the original poster needs to verify his/her claims.

    trust me it is happening tomorrow. I don't have to clarify jack.. don't believe me and miss out. some stores are getting 8, others 16..

    they are sending the info to the people on their email list. Also, you have to reserve at least one game or accessory. You guys have yet to learn my info is legit, lol. I wasn't going to post it because I didn't want a line of people where I go either, but I would want to know the info if I wasn't aware of it..

    AND WII IS WED OR THURSDAY (FORGOT WHICH ONE) - reserve for that is only $50.

    Every EB Games/GameStop around me says that they have no clue when they will get the PS3 if they will get it at all.

    I just called a couple more and I have not received a definitive answer....but both people have told me "be ready" and that "we can't say anything" and that if I want one "have $100 ready".

    I think tomorrow might be the day.....also the guy I talked to said no over the phone or online pre orders but only in person orders.

    Anybody going to the store early???

    If so, how early??

    all I know is it is in person. I didn't ask about online so I can't say whether it is only in store or both. sorry that probably didn't help much.

    Oh man, I think I'm going to have to stop by EBGames after school tomorrow and be one of those *******s that pre-orders a console in short supply simply to sell it on eBay. I hope there will still be some available.:)
    Now, the think is I don't have $600 lying around... but I'll deal with that little issue afterwards.

    Hopefully I won't be too tempted to keep the PS3 come launch day.:p

    I called the Offical GameStop place someone posted the Phone Number on this Thread...I spoke to one of the representitives and she said that the PS3 AND the Wii pre-orders are starting tommorow....
    Time to beat some sence (verbly:p ) into my local EB Games and Gamestop!

    EDIT: My Gamestop tells me that they are taking PS3 pre-orders but not Wii ones, and my EB Game tells me that he had no iformation on any pre-orders...I was just about to starting yelling at the person!
