Worried that you might not get your beloved games console when it arrives in November? Then you might be interested to know that one company, Play.com, is already taking PS3 pre-orders online – but you’ll have to stump up £550 for one.
The price is around £140 higher than the list price previously quoted, but that’s not just the console, it’s the price for a bundle. It includes a 60GB PS3 console, along with three games – Formula One, Singstar and Warhawk. However, these games are subject to change, depending on stock levels.
Play claims it is making the move due to expectant stock shortages before Christmas – and even if you order one now, the company will not guarantee you one before December 25th. But as they’re filling orders on a "first come, first served basis", you should have a good chance.
