Toys ‘r Us Canada is pre-selling Playstation3 bundles, which it says will ship on December 31st, 2006. A deposit of
US$CDN 50 is required.
This next-generation Sony video game promises to deliver state-of-the-art technology with new, powerful digital media and high storage capacity. Bundle includes: Playstation 3 unit, 2 controllers and 2 games. ALL PRICING, IMAGES, SPECIFICATIONS AND RELEASE DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. $50.00 IS DEPOSIT ONLY.
Everything is so iffy at this point, but one thing’s for sure: the site isn’t indicating whether the deposit is refundable. Potential rip-off? Perhaps not from a retailer of Toys ‘r Us stature. But in their excitement to sell PS3s, they might face the possibility of not being able to supply all the pre-orders in a timely manner.
Update: correction via feedback from Henning of http://www.ps3blog.net – price is in Canadian Dollars, and yes, the deposit is refundable. Thanks, mate!
