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
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.
Out here in NY Gamestop stores are still taking pre-orders, I'm guessing this is isolated to web only but given the systems popularity Gamestops other stores outside NY might as well be sold out. Maybe others can confirm with their local GS?
Dayum. I wish I knew how many were pre-ordered, would be interesting.
So glad I got a launch edition PS4 from Amazon...This is some good enthusiasm to see for the system, too.
Is there a difference between amazon launch edition and preordering it from gamestop/bestbuy or where ever? For instance The SOurce aka radio shack has preorders for ps4: http://www.thesource.ca/est... Will they be getting them on launch day cuz I notice the date of arrival is "expected to ship by December 31, 2013".
it says december 31st cause sony still hasn't officially announced the release date yet.
Amazon's "Launch Edition" is the same as any other PS4, except that they are the ones Amazon has slotted as available for release day shipping. The "Standard Edition" is identical, except they may not be available on release day. So the "Launch Edition" is what you get if you were lucky and quick enough to get in a Preorder before their allotment was used up, the "Standard Edition" is basically a backordered PS4 that will release when they get a new shipment in after release day. So far Amazon has gotten a larger allotment twice that I know of. My "Standard Edition" was upgraded to a "Launch Edition" 4 days after I preordered.
Yeah I just ordered the ps4 battlefield 4 with playstation plus launch day bundle, only $499 so you save $10 bucks
Plus all the tax you save to! That alone is with getting from Amazon for!
@above, lucky you, my greedy arse state passed taxes for Amazon. 20+ dollar tax on my PS4, yay......
Sony's website is offering free 2 day shipping and if you use ebates, they're offering 5% cash back when purchasing something from sonys website. Which means you get $20 cash back.
I had to pay $40.00 and change in tax.
Definitely a good sign.
PS2 is definitely back
PlanetSide 2, yup
I figured they would have to stop at some point.
Unlimited runs dry!!!How is that possible?!?! I got to find a game store quick!
Before or after you find Sonic?
...if I see that hedgehog with a PS4 before me...people WILL be robotized...You have my word.
We'll just see about that ;)
Unlimited supply runs dry lol, oxymoron? Great to see such high demand for the PS4
ill wait till i have enough money then ill get it poor :(
I feel your pain sir, I feel your pain. :(
If it makes you feel better, no matter how much money you have you still can't getting it before launch :(
not true im sure if you through enough money at someone at sony they would give you one
Ditto. The incoming games for both PS3 and PSV are still pouring in. >_<
So glad I pre-ordered mine earlier. This will be the first time i get a console on day one which has me pretty pumeped!
Me too, mine is paid for as well as 3 games from gamestop.
Lol true words spoken. Always had to wait a year or two after they came out. Not this time sir not this time! Ye that 100$ upfront put me in debt but by the time i get it i shuld just be picking it up for free(not really but kind of):)
its an awesome feeling to get a console on launch date, i remember when the ps2 came out, it was a rainy day and everyone wanted to buy our ps2 from us for double the price coming out of toy r us, the ps3 was picked up by my brother at a gamestop and when i got home from school i couldn't wait for him to get back from work,the anticipation killed me. lets see what our day is like on launch day :D
I got sucked into the hype of the PS3 after the 2005 E3 press conference, November 17 2006 found me in an Odd place, the PS3 launched in the States but I was on my last day off US Navy Recruit Training in Great Lakes Illinois. And my first day out in town wouldn't be for another 2 weeks... March 23rd, 2007 was the Day I joined the Next Gen of Gaming on the PS3. For me it was the spiritual launch day successor to Nov 17, 2006 in that it was the Day the PS3 completed it's worldwide launch with launching in Europe, United Kingdom and Australia. So even though I was in the US, spiritually I had gotten it on launch day with all my fellow UK/Eu/Aussie on the same day. I remember Resistance:Fall of Man and Motorstorm blowing me away... This year, I'll be on PS4 at Launch Day. And Killzone:Shadow Fall, Watch_Dogs, Knack and Driveclub will all usher in The Next Gen of Gaming for me! I can't wait!
I've been to some launches for games and systems. It's pretty fun, sometimes. I'm also a Police officer here in Canada and have worked some game launches that turned ugly. I hate thieves. But if your doing the "wait in line for a few hrs) thing then enjoy it and have a couple ppl with you to do food runs. :). I waited in a blizzard to help my sis get a Wii. Still fun. And she got the food and coffee. Hahaha. CAN'T WAIT FOR BF4 and INFAMOUS and KILLZONE and DIVISION!!! PS4 FTW! :)
I've never been to a proper console release but I did get a PS2 and a PS3 a day or two after they launched.. I Know exactly when they put out electronics at my walmart at its always about the time I get off work about 3 in the morning.. Both my PS2 and PS3 I picked up off the pallete laying in the floor waiting to be put up lol.. But yea I will be at gamestop for the launch of the PS4 and I am beyond excited..
same for a man. Already have $1000 set aside. A man has PS4 KZ PS+ bundle on Amazon ordered along with PS4Eye, extra DS4 and Knack. Then BF4 and Watch Dogs for Christmas along with all the PS3 games still hitting will keep a man busy this Fall.
Preordered mine 2 days after E3 at amazon.ca. I am good.
