    Default EB Games to cancel PS3 pre-orders

    EB Games to cancel PS3 pre-orders

    Today during a conference call, managers of EB Games stores in Canada were told that a list is being made of all pre-orders for Playstation 3's that have been posted for sale on eBay. Lists will be distributed to individual stores and all pre-orders that have appeared on eBay will be canceled by EB in the very near future. According to the information I've been given, this is a joint initiative between EB Games, Sony and eBay. eBay's new policy regarding pre-order sales has made this possible by requiring that all pre-order listings include a photo of the receipt.

    Anyone know if this is true? And what are your opinions about this? Personally i think it's a good idea.

    It's just an internet rumour.

    Nah, it's true.

    You gotta accept PayPal only, too.

    Did you catch the whole thing?

    Did they happen to say anything about the status of pre-orders for a used NFL gameday?

    But that's just about eBay tightening the selling policies...which has nothing to do with EB Games Canada cancelling preorders of resellers.

    Why is this in the Ebay forum?

    Personally, I really don't care. The prices this system is demanding is just way too much. I can understand $350 but anything over $500 for a system is insane.

    My Collection - Well, kinda. One of these days I will actually get a pic of the whole collection and post it on there. Until then, I only have a few games in there with some additional collection info stuff.

    Except for the slight matter of the now-mandatory photos of the reciepts, sir!

    Anyway, eBay's obviously not in cahoots with anybody over this, but it definitely is enabling for stores as well.

    Hounder: Because it's about consoles being sold on eBay, just maybe?
