went out shopping this weekend..

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
on my shopping trip!(should have taken pics..)

HOLY PS3 BATMAN!!!

went to best buy, walmart, curtict city(SP)

Best buy:
Huge stack of 360s, stack was about half gone so i would say about 20-30 left

PS3...they have 3 of em!!!!, i asked the guy when they came in, he said they got 5 on thursday..it was sunday and only 2 of 5 had sold..WOW.

Wii's.....sold out, dude said they selling out the day they come in, but they are getting small shipments spread out.


Walmart:
360s....they had 6 left, couldnt find rep to ask about them..

PS3......had 2(crazy...)

Wii.....sold out(more people standing around watching wii area than PS3 or 360 area)

Curcit city:

360s...saw about 5 or 6...didnt count the number it was a few

PS3...HAD 4 PS3s!, found the guy to ask he said they had recieved 7 that week in total but they selling slow because he thought they cost more than 360/wii

Wii....sold out, same guy said the wiis are selling out in less than 2 days everytime they get some because they are so cheap and people come in talking about the "swinging stuff" while playing games.



when i went out to check number of systems around a week before xmas i really excepted to find NO PS3s and Wiis just sitting on the shelve. I was shocked to see so many PS3s just sitting on the shelves, and it looks like they have been there for days. only thing i can guess is a lot of people are in the same boat as me...dont have money for a PS3 or a 360. though i REALLY want a 360 to play GoW!....if they would just drop the price even 5 dollars it would be enough for me to mentally say "they dropped the price!" and buy it ROFL, but sadly i've never bought nintendo since NES but if i see one in stores when i'm out i'm propably going to grab it.

I'm still in shock over the wii being sold out every where and the PS3s just stilling on shelves. also looks like "some" 360s are selling but not many, MS need to get head out of arse and bundle GoW with 360 and sell it for like 350 bucks...they would FLY off the shelve, i for sure know i would be rushing to get one before they sold out :-).


anyone else been seeing PS3s sitting on the shelve(i'm in NLR, arkansas and wondering if its just a local thing)

EB Games had 4 of them, don't know which ones though.

They were all for sale to anyone, normal prices too.
I posted that in another thread. They're pretty easy to come by. The wii is the hardest one though.
