$40 PS3 orders canceled, no charges

January 17, 2011

As could have been predicted, I won’t be getting a PlayStation 3 for $40. Per an e-mail from Amazon I just received:

We are contacting you regarding your order #002-0251899-0886633 from the Target store at We recently became aware of mismatched price and product information which resulted in the discontinued Sony PS3 Hardware System and the PlayStation 3 Move Advanced Shooter Grip being displayed incorrectly.

We are sorry, but we are unable to offer you either of these items at this time and have canceled your order.  Your credit card was not charged.
