So what happens after you camp out? They open the doors and you make a mad dash for the electronics dept.? How does that work? Are they organized for these releases? Do they give you some sort of ticket? Inform us and have you done this before?

I believe wal-mart will have x number of chairs sat out (x = number of PS3's they have) and you must sit in the chair to claim your spot, at some point (around 10pm, they will give out tickets)


this is for 24 hour wal-marts, at bestbuy you gotta camp outside the building.

So why Wal-Mart? Best chance to get one? Is this the one you'll be selling or is this one for you?

Are they still taking pre-orders for the Nintendo Wii, or are those sold out as well?

I believe the Blue-Ray production is lagging.

Word of wisdom here

If you are planning on selling one on ebay

#1 set a reserve (around 1500, so that if it doesnt reach that muchm you can relist)

#2 set the starrting bid at 1 cent, so that way more people will get invested into your auction and will be more people bidding at the end to drive up the final sales price.

question about selling on ebay and auctions in general.

What if the highest bidder who won decides in the end he doesn't want and says he won't pay? What happens in that situation?

they have a thing called second chance offer, where you can offer it to the person who just came up short.

For what? This is the trial period basically to see how the machines and its new functions/capabilties function. Why most wait because some have problems, get sent back. Then they fix/correct the problems.

This is true information from a very credible source:

Quote:
The PS3 is scheduled to launch in North America this Friday, November 17. Sony has previously said it expects to have 400,000 systems available for consumers but has not said how many of those will be the 60GB version of the hardware.
