    This is just to register your interest so it's not really a pre-order but they will mail you when pre-orders start

    "Please note that Registered Games Rewards Cardholders (who register their interest) will be given an exclusive time period to pre-order a PS3 before anyone else. Please note this will not guarantee them a PS3, but we are committed to giving our most loyal games customers a head start! "

    so if you have a card you will be the first to know.

    The link I posted at the top takes you to the page where you can actually 'Buy' the PS3. The 'Buy' button works and you get an email receipt when you have paid. Also shows up in Quidco as tracked.

    the product name actually says 'not available for pre-order' in the description so it'll be interesting to see if they honour it. probably not but we shall see.

    and slightly worryingly it says 'part of your order has been shipped. The remainder is still outstanding with our suppliers' - hopefully the part of the order which has shipped (there was nothing else in there) hasn't triggered a payment of £424.99.

    I ordered the first link one.

    yep - me too.

    log back in to hmv and then click on outstanding orders and that is what it says next to it. i don't think they'll have charged me but that's what it says.

    Thanks for posting the link (The first one :thumbsup: ).

    I'm wondering if this is a mistake by HMV as I can't see the point of having a pre-registration service if you can already order the PS3.

    Regards

    Steve...

    Ordered it too.

    It'll be interesting to see how this one pans out. I've registered for their newsletter but didn't receive any notification that the pre order was up.

    Hopefully they'll at least give us first dibs on the real pre orders when available.

    If this happens it'll be the ideal purchase, £425 without being forced into a bundle :thumbsup:

    It's funny,

    as at the top of the page it says that the PS3 is not available for pre order:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Hope we get them on release!:smashin:

    This implies they'll honour the orders, else they wouldn't bother phoning BanaBon to tell him that he couldn't use his student discount card.

    I couldn't be happier - rubs hands with glee :D

    Ive noticed in the past Play has had a habit of listing games that havent technically even been confirmed as in development, The "new" final fantasy 7 which is actually never being made as an example.

    It would be nice if they did though, the true Playstation cult titles making the stand on release.

    Yes!!!:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I got my order on too!!!

    Honestly, I was having nightmares about not getting a ps3 on launch day.

    Launch titles will certainly be:

    Resistance: Fall of Man
    Warhawk
    Call of Duty 3

    Was also planning on Stranglehold but thats been pushed back to 2007

    "Order Status Part of your order has been shipped. The remainder is still outstanding with our suppliers"

    Just had this email in regards to my preorder through hmv last august :clap:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear HMV Customer

    We're writing to you about your order for a PS3 console.

    As it has been a while since you placed your order, we just wanted to make sure you still wished to proceed with your pre-order. The good news is that you are at the top of the pre-order queue, and will be amongst the first in line to receive their consoles.

    If you no longer require your order, then please cancel via your online account, or reply directly to this email. Please note that if we do not hear from you, we will proceed automatically with your order for the console, priced £424.99. Please note that due to the limited availability of the console at launch, we are limiting this offer to one per customer, and any multiple orders will be cancelled.

    As this order was placed a while ago, we also recommend that you contact us if your payment card details need updating. Just give us a ring on 0845 603 8576 (9am - 6pm Monday to Friday), quoting your order number.


    Regards,

    HMV Online Customer Service Team

    Yep, got that email too :).

    Re the PSP bundle - got this email:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear HMV Customer

    We're writing to you about your order for the exclusive PSP / PS3 bundle. Thanks for ordering the Bundle - we are planning to ship your PSP out to you shortly, and your pre-order for the PS3 console has now been confirmed.

    At the time we advertised the PSP / PS3 bundle for sale, we had not received notification from Sony as to our potential allocation on the standalone console, outside of the confirmed allocation for this bundle offer.

    However, before we send out the PSP to you, we just wanted to let you know that we will be offering the stand-alone PS3 console to pre-order for a limited time next week, as details of our initial allocation have been confirmed by Sony. We wanted to check whether you still want to proceed with your order for the PSP / PS3 bundle, or if you would prefer just to be placed in the pre-order queue for the PS3 console alone, priced £424.99.

    Either way, you will be at the top of the pre-order queue for the PS3 console.

    Please get back to us by 12th February 2007- just reply to this email with your decision. If we don't hear from you, we will proceed with your PSP / PS3 bundle offer.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards,

    HMV Online Customer Service Team
    www.hmv.co.uk

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now this to me seems like they have backtracked and have a separate queue for the standalone bundle rather than the PSP/PS3 bundle oders being in front of anyone who orders the standalone PS3!

    Will check tomorrow, if I can get through to someone who isn't a muppet!

    :confused: :confused: :confused: either i cant read but doesn't it say "Either way, you will be at the top of the pre-order queue for the PS3 console.", hence those with the psp bundle are ahead no matter what.
