There are some places taking pre-orders. You will have to call around, or keep an eye out in the weekly ads. My brother-in-law is sleeping overnight at a Toys-R-Us to pre-order a PS3 (they will have less than 20). GameStop took pre-orders a couple of weeks ago, and sold out in a matter of minutes!!! Otherwise, you may have to spend the night on Thurs., Nov. 16!!! They launch Nov. 17!!!
