    Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered one. No chance it ships, but if it does, it'll make me a quick 200 bucks or so and I'll be able to buy a nicer tv.

    I'm guessing this is a typo for $399.99 to get rid of old stock. Of course it's out of stock. I doubt they'll honor the price once they figure it out as it's obviously too low.

    I ordered one as well. Although I already have one. If it actually does ship, I will just sell it to a friend for a good price. Maybe $150.

    So shipping is $15.69, was this the same for everyone? It says out of stock but I still ordered. I assume if they decide not to honor the price they'll let me cancel? I wanted an xbox but this is too good to pass up if its honored.

    I'm guessing that's a typo and being a typo. Amazon/target will cancel the sale

    They can charge my card, I don't buy things on the hopes that they don't charge until they ship. But if they charge me the price it should be then thats not ok. But yes, usually a card is charged when it ships.

    no I do want it at that price but I don't want to be waiting for something that will never ship if I'm already charged

    You end up just getting a game controller....I was in the middle of ordering it at Targets sight. Then I looked at the final item description before I hit submit...it says PS3 Move Game controller. Then I went back to the description on the original Target ad and it you read the item description it is only for a controller not the whole system. They used the wrong picture at the top of the ad .....READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION .

    Ordered 2. One for keep and one for profit, if they ever ship it.

    You are correct! However, on Amazon's page, every bit of info is for the full Playstation 3 system. And on Target's page, all of the reviews are from 2007 and review the PS3.

    I put my order in. Pretty sure it'll be canceled but if not, quick profit.

    The preview to the 10pm news in Chicago just said, "and find out where people are buying PS3s for less than $40."
