    Yo,
    Will check my local independent store tomorrow as I'm sure the lure of Burnout will be too much!

    I got an email from Argos on Monday saying they'd got some limited stock. They'd cocked up my previous order (but they still delivered the game, which was half price with a PSP, for £15 :smashin: ). I then ordered a PSP (and another half price game) and it arrived yesterday - lovely piece of kit.

    I've just checked the Argos web site and it says they DO have stock for delivery. Here's a tip, although it's not explained on their site: you can add an additional game for £14.99. This only works for certain games and you'd have to try the ones you want (works for Ridge Racer, Wipeout and F1 IIRC). HTH.

    Managed to reserve one at Argos in-store (Ring and reserve)

    But I have to return it because the screen had little white marks all over it (Not dust or dead pixels, they can't be wiped off and show when the PSP is turned off) and also there is a hairline scratch which was there when I removed the console from the packaging (Not Argos fault, it was a brand new unit)

    Oh well, it's my second return. Until Sony actually take time to improve their quality control I might just leave it for good :(

    Gamestation have been told maybe next week, but nothing confirmed. No one seems to have any stock at the moment. Sony up to their usual trick?

    Ask Electronics (Tottenham Ct Rd) have had stock since launch day! I bought on the 2nd and they told me " we got quite a lot in"!) Certainly the 20 ish boxes lined up under the counter looked impressive. On Sat last (17th)a friend of mine bought one. They told him "still got stock". Their web page still showing stock - might be worth a check and visit if you're in reach of London!!

    The missus has said she will get me one for my birthday which is 15th october. Looks like ill have to pre-order it, I dont understand Sony. The states has loads of them and so does Japan so why the EU shortage?

    They can hardly say its because its a new console as its been out in Japan for nearly 10 months!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Don't know about other sites but ChoicesDirect have posted mine out today (ordered on the 16th) so they got some stock in. Don't know if it's enough for new orders or whether it'll just cover the backlog. Rang customer services to check it the confirmation e-mail wasn't a mistake and they had no clue that they'd gotten more in.

    Was starting to get seriously p***ed off, I've got 5 games (Wipeout, TOCA 2, Lumines, Everybody's Golf, Untold Legends) a 1gig card, a case, USB cable/charger and replacement analogue nubs. All of them sitting in a draw just waiting to be used! The flippin' courier better come early tomorrow!
