Why You Should Not Pre-Order New Console So Soon

The Tyuno Project: "At E3 2013, Microsoft and Sony revealed the price of their newest console. The PS4 will cost $399 and the Xbox One will cost $499. Ever since E3 2013 ended, people have either gone to there local retail store or went online to pre-order the new PS4 or Xbox One. The question I have to ask is “Should people pre-order the PS4 and Xbox One so soon?” "

actually there's NO reason not to preorder on a place like Amazon, you pay NOTHING down, you only get charged when they are shipped. plenty of time you can change your mind and cancel if you really don't want it.

Starbucks_Fan2006d ago

huh? I had to pay $400 for my PS4.

PeaSFor2006d ago

i had to pay minimum 50$ toward my PS4 at my local ebgames to preorder it, and it not too soon to preorder, its almost too late.

malokevi2006d ago

I put down 50 at EB for my Xbox, they told me both consoles had already sold out multiple times and that they were taking stock from other stores.

That was a week ago. Get em' while they're hot!

allformats2006d ago

Why are all these articles trying to convince folks not to preorder? We've seen the competition and there's no reason not to. Mine is PS4.

I agree, plus too late I already preorderd PS4 & Xbox One. I have been gaming since 1978 and this is the first time I have preorderd systems for launch day. I am actually excited about it.

Amazon is the way to go!

Crazyglues2006d ago (Edited 2006d ago )

@ aquamala

Yeah I ordered from Amazon the second the Sony E3 conference was over....

Didn't have to put a thing down... (Now I have a credit card tied to my account) So not sure how it would work if you have not bought from there before..

-But if you have an account it was easy as 123... -And it still is, So I don't know why anyone would wait. -(Don't have an account - Sign Up)

and you don't get charged until it ships in Nov and can cancel at anytime..

So there really is no reason to wait.. Amazon is the Best...

Normally the first batch of new consoles have some kind of problem... i'll wait till next year to purchase my console, when the manufacturers detect and fix those problems. I'm in no rush.

Perjoss2006d ago

It's a double edged sword, 2nd round of consoles sometimes have features cut also, PS2 BC from the PS3. I still have my launch 60g PS3 with PS2 BC, it works fine :)

Thantalas2006d ago

I'm in the UK and have ordered from ShopTo. No deposit needed. The company is reliable and sometimes they deliver the day BEFORE release!

It's been around seven years since the last gen. As a gamer I know I'm going to get each console regardless of minor changes to each. This is going to be a phenomenal year and preordering means I should get my PS4 and XBOne at launch. I can't wait!

Yea I preordered both for $25 each ($50) total at best buy, worst case I lose $25. Plus I know I'm getting the console I like day one, and a lucky customer gets the one I don't. Plus they told me at best buy I can cancel one of the preorders and get my money back if I do it soon enough, so not sure there is a negative.

Raccoon2006d ago

No money down at amazon with no risk of money loss, shipped to your house on release day :0)

slampunk2006d ago

I'm holding off on pre ordering until after release....I'll eventually get both but am still undecided as to which one i'll get first and when....

Sessler's video below sums it up pretty well...If you haven't watched it take a look...

IcyEyes2006d ago

I can't believe there is someone who can REALLY buy an Xbone.
Whare are the reason to buy an X1 ?

Ryse ? Dead Rising ? Halo ?

CerebralAssassin2006d ago

Well. Yes. Dead rising will be sweet. Titanfall will be sweet. Halo will be awesome when it comes out. The controller looks great. The look of the system is irrelevant. Even though I dont mind the look. Ill be utilizing the espn apps and looking forward to what they have cooking for the nfl deal. The 100 price difference isnt important to me. If I could spend 400, I can spend 500. Where is the reason to buy ps4 besides trying to go against MS. I dont want to hear those stupid troll answers. Im not trolling either. Just asking icyeyes why ps4 over xbone.

IcyEyes2006d ago


My point about "why you want to buy an X1" it's not about the game, but about MS.
I don't like the idea that someone would support MS and their awful policies. Yes, they backpedalled a lot, but now they blame the gamer if we are not able to share games with 10 family members. There is still the mandatory Kinect that bugs me a LOT because it's a scary device (we heard terrible things about Kinect at the E3). Halo is always amazing, but I will never trade my privacy for a game, or I will never accept rules to play games.
Yes, the controller is nice, Titanfall will be released on PC (and yes, on PS4 later), Dead Rising is a bit "meh".
The reasons to buy a PS4?
The same you have to buy a X1, but on PS4 you don't have rules and a spy camera. It's cheaper, more powerful, has awesome indie support, a lot of first party studios and it's a console created for gamers by game creators, not a console created by a corporations for their partners based on marketing research.
Well, we can talk a lot about this subject, I don't want to try to convince someone to prefer a PS4 over an X1, but I think people should try to understand what they are buying. In the meanwhile, I hope everyone are happy :)

ThanatosDMC2006d ago

There's just some people who like it hard and spiny. Maybe it's the pain that get's them? Heck, they didnt even use Win 8.

blackbirdi2006d ago (Edited 2006d ago )

go with ps4 you have 2 adventure title at launch unlike x1 which have just forsa 5 and ryse (which doesn't look great in terms of gameplay ) many people say you have killer intstinct but the truth it'S not a full game it just free to play game which you have to buy each fighter for 3 bucks

CerebralAssassin2006d ago

There isnt much word on what will and will not be a launch title. Nothing is set in stone.

ruefrak2006d ago

Pre-ordering also helps avoid people standing in the rain for hours on launch day and then violence will break out. Remember the story of the guy who got shot for his ps3? I bet he wishes he had pre-ordered

Drekken2006d ago

It is going to rain on release day? I am glad I preordered!

ruefrak2005d ago

It always rains on release day... and Halloween. I'm sure it will rain somewhere. It rained on me at the PS3 launch and I wasn't even able to get one. I had to experience "next gen" gaming via the Wii.

Intentions2006d ago

I'm not pre-ordering in the first place.
