    ok so i or someone i know (ill let you guess :hsugh:) works for target and i (or they:hsughno:) have put together a little help to find a PS3 slim at target locations asap.

    first of all Target uses in store item numbers and that number is referred to as a "DPCI", the DPCI for the Slim is 207-23-0010

    [​IMG]

    i had found this about a month ago but i didnt want to post it because i didnt wanna look dumb if i was wrong :o , $29.99 for ps3 hardware.. those crafty corporate jokes, who are they fooling, gee i wonder what this could be :hsugh:

    and now its on next weeks revision for the playstation isle, it also scans as $299.99 now, "oops we must have forgot a 9" :mamoru:

    [​IMG]

    so now that you know the item number you can check directly for it at your local store one of 2 ways,

    1. Call them; ask for guest service or the operator, tell them "hi, i have the DPCI for a item im looking, could you check for me?". if you ask for electronics they might lie to you and say i"ts not in yet" if they dont know if theres a street date, or with street dated stuff they are told to lie and say "we dont have it yet"...(circa xmas 07-08) *scans Wii barcode* ..*on hand 75 units* "nope sorry all out, check back on sunday when our ad comes out" :hsugh:

    2. Self service; in most targets the price scanners in the isle have a number pad on them, if you type in a DPCI it will automatically bring that item up and tell you if its in the stockroom. this way if your just shopping for food or whatever and you walk by one you can just punch in the numbers and see if its in yet.

    [​IMG]

    i dont expect the release to be huge but getting closer to the holiday season it might be harder to find and this might give you that extra edge to find one for a gift or yourself.

    if your looking for a slim, write this down and put it in your wallet... DPCI : 207-23-0010 (PS3 Slim) just in case you go by target.

    i also have numbers for the PSPgo and select games if you guys are interested.

    just trying to help out :wavey:

    check kotaku.com

    They reported that if you bought a PS3 recently from bestbuy, you can get a Free copy of Infamous or MLB The Show, and $100 back if you change your mind and dont return the Fat for Slim
