First Playstation 3 orders

Someone was reading my mind. You can order a PS3 for delivery on January 5th from the Gamestop's website. The catch? It is bundled with a lot of games you are not going to want.

This Sony PlayStation 3 60GB Most Wanted bundle includes the following items:
  • Sony PlayStation 3 60GB Game System
  • PS3 Wireless SIXAXIS Controller
  • Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
  • Madden NFL 07
  • Ridge Racer 7
  • NBA 07
  • Full Auto 2
  • Resistance: Fall of Man
  • Resistance: Fall of Man Official Strategy Guide
  • 1 Year Product Replacement Plan
  • 12 Month Game Informer Subscription


At least this way Sony is going to get the money and not the PS3 hoarders. Speaking of which, prices for PS3s continue to fall on Craig's List. (It is not uncommon to see 60 bb PS3s for $800 whereas $900 seemed to be the floor up until yesterday.) Sony has promised 2 million shipped worldwide by the end of December and 6 million by March. This is a pretty big ticket item and it has competition which is doing well. Because of this we might be seeing them on the shelves sooner than expected.

Personally, I can wait. I'm too busy until the end of January to think about playing video games.

Update:

Another reason for falling prices:

We’ve just received information from a reliable source that Amazon will soon have the Nintendo Wii and the Sony PlayStation 3 readily available. There is no specific date currently set, but it will be “in the coming days.”

So if you’ve been checking back at your local Best Buy every day or contemplating paying a premium for a system on Ebay, you might want to consider giving it sometime. The Amazon systems will surely be offered at MSRP and given the nature of the information, it sounds like there are plenty of systems.

As always, we’ll keep you posted as more develops on this.
