Need Help Locating A PS3?
After a laumch that saw so many gamers go home empty-handed, many have been searching far and wide for even a single available PS3. But if you're having some difficulty - and we expect you are, considering you likely won't find one before the next shipment - there may be a helpful solution...
Instead of taking a road-trip around the country, searching for that one tiny electronics store in the middle of nowhere that has a PS3 in stock, and instead of offering up thousands on eBay, there is another option: visit PlayStation Finder and sign up to gain access to the PS3-locating service.
It'll cost you $6.50, but you'll receive an e-mail the instant PlayStation Finder discovers a set of available PS3s somewhere. These e-mails all go out at once, of course, so you'll be in direct competition with anybody else in your area. But hey, it's a lot better than waiting around and just hoping to stumble upon one.
