Exactly. If they limit preorders, espicially to as small a number as 10, they have NO IDEA what kind of quota they have to fill. It's easy to fill 10 preorder spots and it certainly dosen't show the overall demand for them.Originally Posted by JeremyDay
If Preorders were used simply for getting an idea of how many the store needs, preorders would be limited to a day or time, not number of preorders.
The reason that these stores only have 10-30 preorder slots is because that's all they can be sure of having. Sure they might have MORE than that, but they are probably sure that they won't have any less. So that way on November 19 when 11 units come in, the 10 preorderers will get one and one will go to a lucky first-comer.
