RIght now a few of the stores are doing pre orders. I know eb games and game stop are currently sold out of the in store pre orders. They will still offer some online in the near future. I know our local toys r us has decided not to do the pre orders. There are a lot of scammers out there taking advantage of the PS3 pre orders. Be careful because you might get the goods this year or next year if you get them at all. I would reccomend that you just visit your local retialers on the release date and pick up a few.
