    Just this second got an email from Argos!


    """The next generation gaming is set to blow your socks off, but STOCK WILL BE SHORT.

    However, don't worry, as you have signed up to receive notifications from Argos on the Playstation 3, you will be one of the first to find out how you can get your hands on this revolutionary console.

    At the moment, Sony are still to release the launch details of their new console. As soon as further announcements are made, we will contact you immediately and let you know how you can order at Argos and bag yourself one of the hottest products of the year.

    Opening a new chapter in the history of video gaming, PS3 is the most advanced Sony console yet. Powered by the new 'Cell' processor, which Sony says is 35 times faster than the chip inside the current Playstation, the PS3 is set to deliver sophisticated and complex gameplay.

    Advanced features include:
    • High-definition cinematic images in real-time.
    • Uses Blu-ray disc format which holds up to 50Gb of information - the equivalent of 10 DVD's.
    • Wireless controller using Bluetooth technology.
    • Backwards compatible gaming allows the user to play PS2 titles on the PS3.
    • Doubles as a DVD and CD player with support for a wide variety of formats. """

    i might be wrong but i would say that GAME will be the first store on the highstreet to start the pre orders, then the others will follow suit. The guy in GAME store told me they would be starting to take pre orders around mid sept
