I’m getting a PS3 on Friday!

As many websites are reporting, Gamestop cannot fill all their preorders. I expected this because of the Xbox 360 fiasco, so I figured I would preorder the 20 GB model since no one else did. Well, it turns out that it was a good decision because I’m getting a PS3 only because I ordered the 20 GB model. The store took 16 preorders, and are only getting 8 60 GB and 2 20 GB. Now, if you are thinking I’m screwed because games start taking 5 GB installs, for $100 you can get a 100 GB 2.5″ SATA hard disk and a USB wireless card. If you really want the card reader, it’s an extra $6.99, which would probably be the cost of tax on the extra $100 that you are saving by spending the money online. Now, I haven’t read any reports confirming that generic USB wireless adapters work, but Sony did say they intend to support them, and 2.5″ hard disks do work.
