This is going to be short and simple, I don’t want to revisit my morning of sitting outside of Gamestop and having the manager say, “Sorry, we’re out,” when I was next. Anyways, all 3,600 Gamestop stores are sold out of PS3 preorders and have been sold out since 2:00 PM today, central time. The max number of preorders each Gamestop had was 16, and only 2 of them were allowed to employees. There goes the “Gamestop employees getting all the PS3s” rumor. While I was waiting outside, the manager of the Gamestop did have to make an announcement stating that your preorder may not guarantee you a console on launch day. Gamestop also has no word on when they will be receiving new consoles, so this could be all they are going to have for a while. Kotaku also reported that the Gamestop spokesman told them that the PS3 preorder sell-out was much faster than the Xbox 360 preorder at the chain. I’d argue my usual Xbox 360 point right now, but I’m just too damn dissapointed.
