PS3 pre-orders sold out

Posted by Kim Peterson at 12:02 PM

GameStop and EB Games stores in the area began taking pre-orders for Sony's PlayStation 3 today, and if you weren't one of the lucky ones waiting in line this morning you're out of luck.

Four stores reported being sold out of the system, and the GameStop in Bellevue Square said it filled its pre-orders in less than three minutes.

Two versions of the PS3 go on sale Nov. 17 in the United States for $500 and $600. To deal with demand, retailers are generally accepting pre-orders with deposits.

GameStop may be adding an online pre-order sale later, according to reports. And worst case scenario: there's always eBay.
