INSANE! this is an understatement. for over a week now, I have been trying to guarantee a PS3. although I preordered one, I was sent an email that the quantity will be received is less than expected. according to the email, media announced that sony will release 400,000 units in USA, but they are actually releasing only 200,000. they could not guarantee us a unit. thats not all. in more than 6 stores in 3 cities 2 counties I have been to, freaks are camping out with their tents, sleeping bags or even without cover in front of each store. the line was from here to canada! even thought each store was getting no more than 20-30 units with exception to one store (circuit city) which was supposed to receive 100. I contacted some of you here "kalee, shilpa, veronica, ramoneh" and more, to see if they know anyone who can join the camp. I stood in line for hours one day before work and had one co-worker relieve me, but we couldnt spend the night like all the others. unfortunately I couldnt find anyone to camp for me. now many of those buyers are selling the ps3 online for $1200-$2000 or more. (original price is $599) but even at that price units are sold out! so, ps3 is out of the picture for now. I will still get him one later this year from another shipment I was told should be coming, but for now I will get him the video games for ps2 and ps3, and something for his neck/back from sharper image, 2 books and I had PlanetSRK hat made for him. I will still upate you with final purchases once I get them hopefully this weekend or by monday.
