Nothing would make me preorder a console. I will get the next playstation as I have always done, but I always give it some time. I'll wait for the new system to work the initial kinks out. Get a few firmware updates and price drop or special offer. I take the time to finish off the last few games I like on the previous PS before moving on. Although this time there's BC with most games, so I could maybe make the transition right away. We'll see, but still not preordering, just buying normally.
