Are there any places i can preorder a PS3? i live in the UK so obviously would like to order from a UK online retailer or high street retailer.

No, he wasn't bulling you. I've pre-ordered there, they just take details. You'll be put down on it. I'm fifth or sixth at my local, after all the staff.

Until they start an official pre-order scheme where you pay a deposit and get a receipt I think you'll find pre-ordering at gamestation is a waste of time. They did that with the 360, registered interest but you still had to go in and pre-order when the proper pre-orders started and the order you placed your order then determined where you were in the queue. Absolutely no point pre-ordering until then...

This has to be reiterated - DON'T ORDER FROM AMAZON. After the 360 farce I'll be trusting other e-tailers like Woolworths.

However, for a Jap machine I've got one pre-ordered at LIk-Sang.

There obviously is a point in pre-ordering then?

It all depends on each Gamestation - if you put your number down and make yourself known to them, they will call you when real pre-orders start to make a deposit.

Unless you live under a rock, I hardly think that you won't hear the news of when pre-orders start...:rolleyes:

Probably a bit slow mentioning this, but seeing as at the weekend, there has been talk of a delay until October due to the Blu Ray standards still not being finalised, I'm thinking 2007 is most likely.

See here for story.

Right, but it'll take a while for the whole company to roll out their pre-order scheme.

The PS3 was always going to be 2007 here, they don't have a tangiable machine yet.

Will pre-orders in the UK start when we have official word on pricing? Maybe E3?
i doubt they will announce uk pricing at E3, unless sony suprise us all and do a global launch which is highly doubtful due to the high cost of production the longer they wai the cheaper it will be to make

I never asked what happened
