Pre-orders for PS3 already sold out of limited allotments

Game stores in the US GamesStop and EB Games annouced yesterday that they were taking preorders for the PS3 for when it ships in the US on November 17. Unfortunately if you weren’t in a store in person with $100 in hand to reserve yours in the first few minutes of the annoucement, they have already all gone.

Each store was reportedly only allocated between 8 and 16 units. Expect shortages this holiday season, and probably don’t expect to be able to walk into any store after Nov 17 to pick one up off the shelf, because people are going to be snapping up these guys as fast as they appear. Also expect massively overpriced reselling on eBay to come your way any day now…
