Sony warns of PS3 scams

Pre-orders not what they seem.

Sony has issued a warning against websites attempting to take advantage of PlayStation 3 pre-orders.

The company issued a statement stating that websites offering discounted or bulk shipments of the new home console have not been arranged with any cooperation from Sony or its partners.

"Such offers are not done with any cooperation from SCEA or its parent company," reads the statement.

"SCEA strongly recommends against consumers pursuing such offers, as their legitimacy cannot be confimed. We recommend consumers purchase PlayStation products only from authorised SCEA retailers and resellers," it said.

The move comes as the firm prepares to launch it next-gen console in the US and Japan later this month.
