Next Gen Consoles: Pre-orders and eBay Rules
As the latest of the next-gen consoles are getting close to their release date, we should be starting to see pre-order details from various retailers. As Gamespot.com reports, Toys "R" Us has announced that they will be offering pre-orders for Nintendo's Wii starting this Sunday. Rumors are circulating that Playstation 3 pre-orders might also be available, but nothing has been confirmed.
In related news, online auction house eBay will be changing their rules as to how the new consoles will initially be sold.
