278w ago - Online retailer Amazon.com has now instituted a [Register or Login to view links] for PlayStation 3 Slim consoles, allowing just ONE per household or you could risk getting your account closed.

To quote: PlayStation 3 120 GB Purchase Policy

As you may know, the PlayStation 3 120 GB is in great demand, and there are shortages of this product across the U.S. In an effort to provide as many customers as possible with the opportunity to purchase PlayStation 3 120 GB, we are limiting the total number of PlayStation 3 120 GB units that can be purchased. As a result, each household may only purchase one PlayStation 3 120 GB unit.

Failure to comply with this policy will result in account actions including, but not limited to:

• Cancellation of all outstanding orders, including PlayStation 3 120 GB orders and other orders.
• Closure of the offending customer account and related accounts, including:
• The customer account used for making purchases and selling items on Amazon.com Seller accounts
• Any international accounts at Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, or Amazon.co.jp
• The Your Media Library account area, including any digital products you may have purchased
• Any Amazon.com Associates account or Advantage account attached to the closed account

When an account is closed, access to any Amazon Wish List, Baby or Wedding Registry, or profile pages is lost. Any purchase history, saved gifts in Gift Central, and digital products in Your Media Library will not be accessible. Additionally, any outstanding Amazon.com gift certificate or check funds balance will be unavailable.

I assume that a firmware update could easily change that. The games I have here have a Number 1 on the side which i assume indicates a region. The ps3 at the moment just doesnt care. Whether they will do that I wouldnt know, its doubtful. Would be a great reason to hack it if they did.

Now, I don't think there are a lot of dumb people willing to pay $500 for a console that will be $299 everywhere else but I've seen some stupid people that will jump on an auction like those.

Besides, very few people will buy two or more PS3s at one time, and those that want another can get one from gamestop or kmart or wherever.
