Why is it always EB?
Well, tomorrow is the day for pre-orders for BOTH the Wii AND PS3, talk about pre-order frenzy. Canada’s pre-orders come a few days after the US and EB stores will be taking pre-orders for BOTH systems on the same day!
With less than 10 systems per EB store(I’m sure this translates to 8 after the retailers keep two for themselves) I’m sure there will be many cranky people who will miss out on securing a pre-order.
EB’s employees said today after we joked about them letting us get a pre-order this afternoon “They won’t even let US get a pre-order”..uh-huh. I don’t know what it is about EB employees that irritate the hell out of me. Oh! It might be the way they can’t even look me in the eye when they answer my questions. And it doesn’t seem to matter what questions I have, I always end up feeling like the employees are either smug know-it-alls or don’t know anything and aren’t much help. Perhaps its just the EB location I go to.
I’m eager to see how many people will be at the EB downtown location before sunrise tomorrow morning. A dark, rainy and cold Monday morning…who will be the lucky few to snag the pre-orders?
(Not sure if anyone in our city will brave the cold, rainy weather to camp out overnight but you never know…)
I’m more interested in the Wii pre-order, but if I can’t get one, it’s not the end of the world..I’ll just have to wait till launch day.
I did hear news that some people were waiting for Canada’s PS3 pre-orders so they could either auction it or get one for themselves. EBay cancelled auctions on the PS3 Pre-orders and will most likely do the same for the Wii(if they don’t that would be so unfair); Angry Ebay traders respond. Read here.
Coming soon to a retailer near you…
