Target accidentally sells PS3 for $40 don’t expect it to arrive

For a brief while yesterday a PS3 on Target’s website as well as their Amazon store was being sold for $39.99. The ad has since been pulled off their sites with no explanation to what happened. But for all of the people that actually placed orders for the PS3 I would’nt expect to get it.

Target has a pricing policy that I am sure they will follow which covers this instance:

Confirmed Prices and Pricing Errors
We cannot confirm the price of an item until your order enters the shipping process nor will we charge your credit card until your order enters the shipping process.

Please note that your Order Acknowledgment means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been shipped or that the price of an item has been confirmed.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our Web site may be mispriced. As part of our shipping procedures, we verify price before an item is shipped out.

•    If an item’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and ship you the item.

•    If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price we will cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation via email.

The ad may not have even been for a PS3 in the first place but the event of a system glitch. Because when scolling down further to the description of the PS3 it reads:

The official PlayStation®Move sharp shooter provides the most intuitive and immersive control experience for shooter games. Its authentic design and precision ensure the most engaging gameplay experience. Easily accessible buttons and adjustable shoulder stock allow for hours of comfortable gameplay. Take aim and Move into the firefight.

The price set a 39.99 for the sharpshooter controller makes sense because when I searched Google for prices they come out the same. So if you order does ship you will probably receive a sharpshooter controller and not a PS3, however we would like to know if you do get a PS3 instead.
