I hate GameStop, but there is nothing like a midnight release for a console. :) I have to reserve there... :/
Godchild1020  +   919d ago
That's if they do one. Remember they didn't do one for the Wii U. And that had a great deal of reservations.

But I understand what you mean, I hope they have one aswell. I'm just waiting for them to start taking reserves.

Best Buy should do it as well, on top of that you should get at least $10 in rewards coupons (better than nothing).

The reason to get it from GameStop is if there's a trade in your PS3 get $100 - $150 off the PS4 kind of deal in which case GameStop it may be.

The thing is, I know that all of my friends will be at GameStop. I used to work there and so did many of them. Some still do. I discovered Disc Replay though, so I NEVER go to GameStop now. Lol. I would go for the experience of hanging out with all the local gamers though. Perhaps I could get a group together and reserve at Best Buy, so we can all sit out and wait for it at midnight. :)

Placeholder price, with the Australian dollar stronger than the US hoping for a $700 . For the record the PS3 was $1000 at launch

im already on the wait list.. when i can deposit, i get a phone call & ill stop whatever it is im doing (good thing i work midnights) & go drop the money.. Im getting it day uno

Doing it via Amazon. I want it on my doorstep on release date and I will shell out a premium for that.
No driving, no lines, just grab and open, then... PLAY!

Just make sure you're home when it gets there. I've been seeing way too many surveillance videos of people stealing packages from door steps. Freakin bums lol.

You would have to sign for it unless the delivery man is completely clueless.
Kingthrash360  +   919d ago
Ill do it today if it was avaliable to do so at gamestop or gameplay. No matter the price or date im going to want it anyways so the sooner the better imo. If I start now put 20 $ a week it will be paid in full by release.
DarkBlood  +   919d ago

Just got an email from Amazon about it;

"Discover the Sony PlayStation 4 console now.

As the first in the next generation of consoles, the PS4 features high-end specs such as PC-style architecture, X86 CPU, 8GB of unified memory and HDD local storage.

With glorious visuals and a number of incredible launch titles announced, including Diablo III, Knack and Destiny, make sure to sign up to find out more about PlayStation 4."

Poor Wii U totally skipped over as last generation.

What are the odds that the PS4 launch suffers the same fate as the PS3 launch? God, I remember all the mayhem that the PS3 release caused. And then there were all those people that bought hella PS3's just to resell them. I hope that doesn't happen this time around.

From the looks of things, Sony has learned. Then again, the Vita had fantastic games at launch and a price point that most agreed was actually lower than we all expected. Yet...nobody bought it. I bought it and haven't put it down yet.

What will it take for people to get a PS4? Free car?

I'll go to Target. The red card pretty much cuts out the tax completely on expensive items since they take the 5% off before tax.
