EB Games Australia outlines Xbox One, PS4 pre-order pickup details

Stevivor - "Hanging out for the Xbox One or the PS4? Or, both? EB Games Australia is too, today advising of pre-order pickup details for those who're itching to get their hands on Microsoft and Sony's latest console.

"First off, those who've yet to pay off their pre-orders will receive 50% bonus trade credit on Xbox 360 or PS3 consoles between 9 November and 16 November. Games themselves get double EB World bonus trade credit during the same period." (EB Games, PS4, Xbox One)

Lol EB games at pacific fair still has Xbox day one console left to sell , over half the allocation lol they have been sold out of ps4s for a couple months at least

the funny thing is the EB near me has a bunch of them too, Xbone comes out a week before and they still havent sold out of the day one allocation, the ps4 on the other hand if you preorder now you get it in 2014 lol. I think most Australians have chosen the ps4.

OT i went in to pick up my fast pass today but they said they wont have them for a couple more days.

I like the fast pass idea. Keeps us, that's paid in full, from having to wait for people that haven't. Hope they incorporate that here in America this week.

Usually at midnight launches they have everyone pay it off before midnight while they're waiting around. Then when midnight hits they just scan your reciept and hand you you're stuff. At least that's how they do it here in the US.

Yeah he certainly did not have the most exciting vocabulary I had to stare at the ornate metal work near the store to get my mind of wanting to end him Shellharbour store.

I went down today to get my fastpass thing, got told they aren't giving them out until Friday.

Edit: Just got off the phone with my local EB, now they're saying next week for the fastpasses and the open at 10pm thing was to let people finalize payments on their preorders.

Yeh i talked to the manager at my local EB he says they havent got the passes and to expect them start of next week. I dont know why they emailed about them waaaaaay before they got them, i got my email at 12:11 this afternoon , got into the shop at 12:30 and said wheres my damn fast pass lol (they know me there i wasnt being obnoxious) the manager said they wont have em in till maybe start of the week could be later.

The system sounds good tho, they will have a line ready for everyone with a fast pass , then once those ppl have gotten their ps4s then they will start the line for the other ppl.
