Babbages (EB Games) screws me on the PS3!

I just got a very bad phone call from Babbages (EB Games, Gamestop). The worker said he had a script to read. It essentially said that due to less-than-expected allocations, I would not be getting a PS3 on launch day but I would be getting one by Christmas. I was the sixth in line for the pre-order. He said the "good news" is that I'm number one for the next shipment, or if somebody fails to pick theirs up within 48 hours. That means that the store is only getting five 60 GB PS3s. He mentioned that they will have available the 20 GB on launch day and I can speak for that if I want it. I'm torn right now. A 20 GB on launch day or hold out hope that I can get a 60 GB within a week or two. Decisions, decisions.

Personally I'd wait for the machine I wanted and not settle for a lesser version, however due to the nature of your work it might be necessary to go ahead and suck it up and get the cheaper version. We didn't get the 360 at launch, but we did get it Christmas Eve. Hopefully you can wait to see if someone fails to get theirs in the 48 hour window (that long of a time is shocking, they gave up until they closed the day they called). Good thing you guys were number 1 on the Wii preorder.




Good things come to those who wait.




Hey, I'm Jeremy S! Okay, so there can be more than one of us.

This is true, fellow Jeremy. It's like I'm calling myself from the future (see South Park Wii episode). The plan is to wait it out and see what happens. "Wait and see"...ahh...so "Cider House Rules".




lol weird
