100 bucks for your PS3 raffle ticket

Those who want to slightly increase their chances of procuring a PlayStation 3 would be wise to know that GameStop and EB Games are today taking pre-orders for the new console.

The following statement comes straight from the retailer:

GameStop and EB Games will begin accepting limited pre-orders for the PlayStation 3 console on Tuesday, October 10, on a first come, first served basis. Due to extremely limited supply, we expect to deplete this allocation very quickly, most likely in minutes. We will not accept additional pre-orders at this time. To avoid an unnecessary trip we strongly recommend you call your local store to determine availability. A $100 reservation deposit is required, which can be funded with cash, credit or trade. As we cannot control production and shipping issues by the manufacturer, a reservation deposit does not guarantee receipt of a system available to purchase at launch. Reservations/Purchases are limited to 1 per household.

Canadian gamers will have to sit out during this pre-order round, as the above information applies only to US stores. EB Games, however, has made indication that Canadian pre-orders will soon follow.

Currently the pre-order is in-store only. According to GameStop, online pre-orders will be announced after software and accessory availability dates are confirmed -- which likely means that all PlayStation 3 consoles will be part of a forced-bundle.
