Late last month, it was revealed that GameStop had been given the go-ahead by Sony to “open the floodgates” for “unlimited” PS4 pre-orders. Now, GameStop has had to close their floodgates, with the standard PS4 edition sold out. - PSLS
Damn, things are going their way.
Go to Best Buy, they let you put $25 down on the PS4, if you don't have a lot of money and pay on it until you pay it off.
Best Buy allows you to put $25 down, but I'm pretty sure that you aren't guaranteed a system on launch day. I went to Gamestop to put my pre-order down just last week. Looks like I got in there in good time.
Or buy it from amazon, they let you pre order it for free and you can cancel it at anytime..
PS4 pre orders have hit 175 at my gamestop.
Lol what a subtle troll deliver "The Xbox One Day One Edition is also still available on GameStop, if you plan to pre-order it"
I already preordered and payed off in full at my local GameStop now I will buy 3 games for launch. Glad I got in the next day after E3. Its good to be an informed gamer :).
Yes best buy guarantees just the same as gamestop. Pick yours up there.
Tony-A My PS4 will be at Beat Buy when it's time to pick it up. I'm not stupid, putting money down and not guaranteed one that's what pre-order mean. I put money on it so i have one. after E3 on Mon, Tue i went to GameStop and they said $100 Sony said $50 on their website so i went next door to Best buy to put money down bc all i had was $50.
Wish somewhere would let me do that in the UK as a Student about to start uni I could use with being able to pay it in advance but not all in one, having to refrain from spending money on ANYGHING intentionally or unintentionally... not gone as well as I'd have liked there are things I need, that keep being in sales... :s (When I say need I do actually mean for the most part that I actually do NEED them.) Hopefull by mid september I'll be sorted then I can at least have some money for uni, freshers week etc :o
At Best Buy you can't pay on pre orders, I tried but your system will be there launch day. They (BB) stopped pre orders June 30th
@ RyuCloudStrife Same I am almost done paying all my pre-orders off. With such a time gap between release day, it's almost like the console is on lay-a-way and you can just pay it off as you want and have it fully paid off by launch day.
use Amazon dude, like others have said amazon uk does not have release day stock problems with the PS4, just preorder it for free and get it delivered on release day as for the money, just put some aside every week or month until your goal is achieved, thats my plan
If you're in the US there's no reason why you shouldn't be ordering from amazon.
If you pre-order from Best Buy online with a store pickup, they do their weekly credit card charges to make sure you have enough to pay for it. If it fails they may cancel your order if you don't react. Got preorders in at Amazon and Best Buy. Either way I'll get one.
Best Buy drives me nuts. I quit going there a couple years ago because of all the problems I'd have with online orders. I think the last two years they really pissed off people because stuff that wasn't ordered for Chritmas wasn't available. But whatever, I ordered both Xbox and PS4. It seems they're putting through authorization charges on the card WEEKLY. It seems my bank doesn't like that and it sets off fraud alerts since it's over $500 for the PS4. After the 2nd one, my bank declined. Called BB, they tell me they're putting it through every week. Call the bank to lift the hold and tell them what BB told me and said that's very unusual and I'd probably continue to have problems. Call BB to resolve and they put everything through and said it's all clear. 10 minutes later I get an email saying my order has been cancelled. I hate BB so much.
Ya but problem with Amazon is you must pay your preorder in full. Not sure how Best Buy here in Palmdale will guarantee a console i hear they did over 300 orders at this one. Although Palmdale was the main launch city for Xbox 360. Best Buy had thousands. They had huge event at Plant 42.
I just did mine at Gamestop there was less people preordering. Now i am wondering though since i am 27th on the list but lets say i am 50th in line to pick up, do they put them aside with your name? Or is it first come first serve regardless of what position you are on preorder list?
Why put money down on something not guaranteed to be available at release? You can preorder and not be promised one for free.
@ steven83r amazon do0esn't charge you until the product ships...
Actually Best Buy DOES Guarantee your pre-order. I know for a fact Gamestop won't they didn't for PS3. I remember when they only allowed like 5 Pre-orders and even those 5 who did some had to wait for new shipment. Why is best to do midnight Launch.
Another good PS4 news: YEBIS 2 bringing Visual Fireworks to PS4 Developers http://blog.us.playstation....
Nice! I'll keep that in mind if I still decide to pre-order for launch. Part of me wants to wait until January, but idk yet. I really do want a PS4 early in it's life cycle. I was late to the party in the 7th generation as I entered in 2009 partially, and fully in 2010.
Glad I pre-ordered early, picking it up on day 1!
Put down NO money on Amazon... Release-day delivery. However, I'm sure that's gone by now haha!
Same here, $0 down on amazon and will get the PS4 delivered to me on launch day so I don't have to stand in line with a bunch of assholes like I did on the PS3 launch.
I may have been one of those assholes!
@JewyMcJew If you were trying to start fights or getting people to start fighting just so they get thrown off line or being an obnoxious loudmouth, than yeah. If you didn't do any of these than no. I met few of the worst people in my life while waiting in line for the PS3.
but they didn't prepared for the tsunami
damn, I got last of us and wanted to reserve mine, but they needed 100$ down. Damn should have gone back after I got paid. Ohh well, As long as I have one by the time infamous comes out im good.
Bundles at Amazon.com are still available and they are launch systems.. So if you buy the bundle you will get you system at launch - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref... All bundles are Launch-Day offers (So I'm pretty sure you were going to buy a game with the system..) Why would you buy just the system and have nothing to play? -So grab a bundle Best part you don't have to put nothing down... Amazon does not charge your card until they ship it.... enjoy .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
great for sony i have mine pre ordered can't wait to pick it up with few games at launch drive club- i know psn-plus will get a free edition but i want the full experience, i am hopeful that many will like it as free game and end up buying the whole thing so we can get a strong community going watch dogs killzone knack(this i may wait for a little price drop), i want a proper ratchet and clank game on ps4 so bad
This is like Sony's 4th level sell out just in Gamestop alone. Add the multiple level sell outs on Amazon and I think its pretty safe to say the PS4 is dominating the pre-sale charts. Congrats to Sony. Its gotten so good for Sony that they have even sold out of their unlimited supply.
ps4 is the counsol to get guys dont make the mistake of getting the xbox one and then having to sell it or trade it in lol. the smart and logical choice as a gamer in these hard economic times is the ps4.
