Do they really think people that waited outside for a PS3 for an extended period of time will settle for the 360?

I guess it doesnt hurt to try.

think different

I doubt people who wanted PS3's would be satisfied with an xbox 360.

That's a pretty good deal for microsoft, convert all people who couldn't get a ps3 into M$ fanboys.

Ya IGN did a story on this and called all of the local best buys in their area. None of them had any idea what they were talking about. So take this article with a grain of salt.

Pretty nice deal, and also very good for Microsoft. But meh, if I came for a PS3 I want to either leave with a PS3 or leave with nothing at all, and just wait.

I went to BestBuy's website and I have found nothing that says that. And you also realize that the site that states that has no link to a reference.... But this is what they say about buying a PS3:

PlayStation 3 Launch
Best Buy Store Opening Hours and Ticket Process


Here are the details on how PS3 Launch Day will work at Best Buy store locations:

All Best Buy stores will open at 8:00 a.m. on November 17. Starting at 7 a.m., store employees will hand out tickets, and each ticket will be good for one PS3 console purchase. (One ticket per customer. See details below.*)

Each store will have a minimum of 20 of the 60GB PS3 Systems and 6 of the 20GB systems.

So, head over for your chance to be one of the first gamers to score the awesome new console, plus pick up all the games and accessories you'll need to complete the total PlayStation 3 experience.

*Quantities limited. Tickets grant customers the option to buy one PS3 console and are valid within one hour of that store's opening. We are unable to guarantee all customers in line will receive a ticket. No rainchecks.
