Ok,

I waited and procrastinated and now I want a PS2 after playing a friend's one.

Where's the best place, IYO, to order a PS2? Any online store that will be better at getting PS2's by Christmas? Or will I have to wait 'till hell freezes over

EBWorld isn't taking orders any more. Are the individual stores themselves taking orders? I ordered mine from Outpost and they said it may not be until March till I get my system and I ordered mine the first of July...

Yawn.........

You are going to have to wait a while to get one.

Speaking of ebay, I did a search for a laugh one night. Can you believe that people are bidding upwards ot $600 or more for a new system.
It pisses me off that the people selling them got one and were just looking to sell it on ebay to make money off the drive people have to get one when they missed out earlier.
I know I shouldn't be too mad because no one is forcing the people bidding to bid that much.
But, to buy a system and take it away from someone that might really want one just to sell it on ebay for a profit. Those people upset me.

Most if not all the online and local B&M stores are not taking any more orders right now. other then the fact they are not 100% sure what their allocation will be over the next few months they are still in the process of fullfilling the remaining pre-orders which take priority over walk in customers. Unless you are lucky you will probably have to wait at least until after christmas. The best thing to do is to continually check with the various stores.

I think the best bet would be to find out when Best Buy or another B&M gets their shipments in and then just call or stop by each week to see if you can score one.

Just like the others have posted above. Most online stores(i.e EBworld and Amazon)are not taking orders anymore - they are still trying to fulfill most of their pre-orders. You, might have better luck at B&M(best buy,circuit city,target and walmart)stores - try calling each stores and see if they have stock or when their stock arrives. Might also try your local videogame shops in your area for availability.

Use ebay as your last resort - prices are up in the high $600 and up(will continue to rise).

But it IS a sweeeet system. I've been playing SSX for hours on end, and since I don't have a mem card yet (#@$%@#$% buy.com!) I have to keep restarting. It's still fun!

But after 10+ hours in front of Wal-Mart, I've learned one very big life lesson: Even California is C_O_L_D at 4 am.

Luckily I pre-ordered and fully pre paid for the memory card as well as the system so I was able to get it on the same day. SSX is a fantastic game and I have been playing it extensively over the last few days. Luckily I have been able to save my progress and all the tricks I have been able to complete.

I bought a memory card at Target for no problem. They had 10 of them. Now I have 2 games, a memory card, and NO FREAKING PS2!!!!

By the way, I wrote to Outpost.com and told them that we deserve at least a good coupon for this mess. I don't mind that they didn't have the stock, but they could have at least warned us. There CSRs conituously said all was fine..
