PS3/Wii Pre-order Madness

Well, the madness has started this week in the form of PS3 and Wii pre-orders. The PS3 has reports of selling out pre-orders and a lot of the pre-orders will sadly go to PS3 scalpers. What happened to the days when people bought video game consoles to just play and not to turn around and just sell on eBay. I guess the really sad thing that it sounds like 90% or more of the PS3’s are going to be on eBay, which means many people will not be seeing one this Christmas. This is the sort of behavior that kills markets.

Anyway, on a happier note, Wii pre-orders are starting to be officially accepted today at ebgames and gamestops. The systems supplies are supposed to be plentiful, so it sounds like like people who are pre-ordering this system are actually going to play them. Smiley We will have to see if pre-order sell outs happen for the Wii as well.

    So far, Bleach for the Wii…in Japan…outside of that, nothing really.

    The downloadable content should more than make up for it…should be interesting to see what they offer on launch.
