over the dang blue ray disk crap.
Such BS, its back to the same BS arguing over BETA vs VHS

Un friggin believable. By the time they decide on the standard, a newer better technology will come out.

If by "new" PS2 you mean something almost 6 years old, then by all means!

Yeah, the delay was expected...Hopefully this will allow Sony to build enough units to satisfy demand...Unlike the PS2 and Unlike the XBox 360. Now THAT would be an achievement.

You know that will never happen, there will still be a million people waiting in line the night before and 3/4 of them will go home with nothing.

the release of the PS2 was pretty well handled, 95% of the places that carried it pre-sold all units and had signs out well in advance that they wouldnt have any on shelves until further notice.

now microsoft wanted to create a hoopla so they only allowed each store to pre-sell a certain # of units. good strategy for media hype, but it pissed ALOT of people off, especially when 65% of all units in the first run had to be returned for faulty software. i know of 3 people still waiting to get theirs back after only 2-3 days of game play.

Honestly, these places aren't going to make everyone happy. I remember when the PS2 came out, and I asked my mom for it for Christmas. (I was in college at the time, and needed it! ha ha ha ha ha) That Christmas, I found a note on the tree that said "IOU one PS2...Even the Elves couldn't keep up with the demand. Santa." ha ha ha ha ha ha...I was 20 years old.

No company is going to be able to keep up with the demand, it's how you handle that part that is so frustrating.

dont expect them too, but atleast let first run pre-sell fully so that people atleast know, there's not that rush, screws a lot of people who want to do something for their kids and cant, and makes that company no extra money.

i just think of the friend trying to get one because his kid wanted on for christmas, he waited in line all night, didnt get it, then he felt like crap cause his kid didnt get what he really wanted for christmas. yea i know, boo freakin whooo for the kid, so dissapointing, kid didnt get what he wanted, its a part of life. still sucks for both of them.
