40GB pre-orders go on sale

Major online retailers, such as amazon.com and Gamestop.com, are now taking pre-orders for Sony's upcoming 40GB PS3 system. The $399 system will lose backwards compatibility with PS2 games and memory card readers. It will, however, come bundled with a Spider-man 3 Blu-ray movie. Although this is the cheapest PS3 model yet, this version will still retain built-in wireless support.

The system will be available on November 2nd. How many PS3 Fanboy readers are interested in picking this price-reduced model?
