G-Stop pre-orders on 10th?
A poster on 1UP's messageboards claims that pre-orders for the Wii and PS3 will start by October 10th. Supposedly a manager in Greensburg, PA, the poster says that while some stores won't offer pre-orders at all, those that will may require $50 down without the chance of using a trade-in. His account seems to vascillate a bit - he starts off by insisting on the 10th but then goes on to mention the 9th as a possibility. A contact for Wii-Volution also brings up the 10th however, so we may be in luck. Just remember that past rumours have sometimes been wrong.
