Crazy GameStop rumours
What will you have to do to get a launch-day PS3 from GameStop? According to a Kotaku tipster, the answer may be to buy, buy, buy. A manager supposedly says that each GameStop outlet will get an average of six PS3s - more or less depending on the size of the market. From there one or two may go to employees, and the rest will go to select regular customers. This could, needless to say, result in extreme frustration for those not considered "loyal" enough. On a similiar note, gamers wanting to try out a Wii at GameStop may need a credit card as collateral. Another Kotaku tip hints that since the Wiimote is wireless, the company is concerned about theft.
