ive signed up for the email notifications from them and Ive not heard anything yet
Argos ARE taking pre-orders from 7th September!
check out the back of this bank holiday weekends sale leaflets, it says there.
Are they online orders or store orders too ??
shhhh don't tell everyone there all mine I tell ya!!!!
How will it work? deposit in store, or just put your name down on the internet?
its up to sony at the end of the day, the talk has been of an £150 deposit
I hope they do online orders
Just re registered on the web site as getting a bit nervy as I thought those who registered would get an e-mail, I know ,give it a chance,But I cant wait!!!
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've just got that very email too.
So does this mean there wont be a preorder from Sept 7th??
Do Argos only taking the money when the item is dispatched on pre orders does anyone know?
i phoned up argos and asked today and they dont know when there will be a date for preorders.
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
As far as I know they send you an email to RESERVE a console then you email/click back to them, Then they send you a confirmation number that you take instore to preorder but how much you pay I do not know and Im a bit worried as I havent received an email
I just received mine. When did you register with the website?
i've recieved my e-mail
as a worker for argos, ive heard they will be getting next to little stock of ps3! So take the limited stock message as just that!
what kind of email did you received? with the confirmation number or just an email about the preorder? i have received one about the shortages and all...
Ive received nothing back! Originally registered july/early august.
Do you mean you recieved the email saying that you can preorder?Or the one saying they arent available yet?
Ive recieved the one saying they will be available soon but thats all
I reckon it was an email saying that they won't be available till March!!
Thank you for your e-mail regarding your query.
Please be advised that at present we are unable to take pre orders as Sony have
now delayed the launch date of a possible 17th November however they have not
yet confirmed this date.
Please see details online on our homepage go to Video games then click on the
details shown there to be updated.
Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us
at [email protected] or call us on 0870 600 8784.
The available soon one. I got this yesterday. Obviously it doesn't mean much now!
Will the people like myself who sent there email to argos in july about getting this 'so called confirmination code' be erased now from there system because of this delay, and we will have to do this whole process again or will things carry on as usual and we'l now be hearing from argos but not for months now.
