    Heard from one of their electronic guys that most Targets are only scheduled to get 10 to 20 PS3's on launch. There's one store in Denver, however, slated to get 100 (based on video game sales, etc.)

    Should be interesting.

    Just an FYI.

    Seems about what we had here for the 360s. The most a target had was 20, and with only about 8 of those being premium. Walmarts had on average about 40-50.

    Hope the advertisements make this point loud and clear, so the riots can't be blamed on the stores.

    I have not decided where to wait yet, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, or Circuit City. I have no idea who is getting the most.

    What's the release date of the PS3 again?

    I'm not interested in getting one at launch, but I was thinking of driving by some stores that day and seeing what the lines look like...Maybe grab some shots. I do love these events!

    EB pissed me off about the PS3, almost to the point of me not wanting one anymore. I'm not sure. I really don't feel like fighting with people the morning of release and I don't want to get gouged on packages via online preordering.
