I still think you will not be able to walk into a store and buy a PS3 untill after christmas. I said this months ago and I was mocked. My friends dad works for Sony and even though he doesn't work on the PS3 he believes that there will be major shortages(even worse than the xbox 360). Anyone want to place a bet? I say you will not be able to walk into a regular(eb games, walmart, target) store and buy a PS3 untill after 2007 begins. sorry this is a dupe post. I thought I looked good enough. I was looking on the wrong page.
