Here’s a Trick on How to Get a Xbox One or PS4 Near Launch if You Didn’t Pre-Order

If you didn't preorder a PS4 or Xbox One and now you're regretting it, there's still hope for you to get one near launch if you live in the US (or in a country with similar retail practices) here's a trick on how to bring that anticipated console home. (PS4, Xbox One)

Well, GTA v is probably the most played game of the last 2 months so I'm sure many people have an idea or two on how to obtain a launch system.

Obviously steal a car, run them down and get out to collect the goods. Repeat until you have 10 million and then freeze up and restart.

Or sell the car to a mechanic, drive outside the shop, sell it to him again, drive out the shop, sell it to him again...
badboy776  +   413d ago
exactly lol.
jackanderson1985  +   414d ago
show up and hope for the best?
HaveAsandwich  +   414d ago
pretty much, yea.
FullmetalRoyale  +   414d ago
My friend just wouldn't listen when I told him to pre-order back in June.

Poor, poor fool.

dcj0524  +   414d ago
Me and you need to talk.
I_am_Batman  +   414d ago
Which console did you preorder?
tanis_halfelven  +   414d ago
my 26 dollars (yes 26) will do my talking for me
stellarock420  +   413d ago
you cant resell a pre order ur name is on it and they may ask for id also if u go in to the store they will refund you
Captain Qwark 9  +   413d ago
i pre-orded the x1 and sure i can as long as yo live close to me, id just go get it with you...that said, if your not from buffalo ny, prob not gonna work lol
wishingW3L  +   413d ago
I cancelled my pre-order too. I might pick one up around E3 of next-year.

Same as you I don't want to deal with launch issues. I don't want to wait for Gaikai, MP3, and capture card support. On top of it many games were delayed like Drivecblub, Watch Dogs and The Crew.
Captain Qwark 9  +   413d ago
yup, i already know certain apps prob wont work, hardware issues will arise as they always do on the first round, once you finish the launch titles a dry period with no games will likely come around. pretty much the usual and rather than get a headache over it like the last couple consoles i got on launch, have to call about warranties, etc. im just going to wait.

plus the current gen still has so many good games i want to play. Batman, AC4, wwe 14, GTA V, FFX13, FFX13-2, Lighting Returns, Tales of vespiria, and Dark souls 2. When i have finished all of those, then i will pick up the next gen consoles.
Sitdown  +   414d ago
Haha.... this is not a trick.
iamnsuperman  +   414d ago
As an instructor taught me one time, always:

beg, borrow or steal (he did hint at two of those options being the same thing but whatever)
wishingW3L  +   413d ago
true. When someone borrows something you'll most likely will not see it again. XD

So, does that mean at 12:01 AM on Sunday the stock "may" be there at stores like Wal-mart who are open 24 hours?
Man_Son  +   414d ago
most likely close to daylight hours
Abriael  +   414d ago
Yep. If they have guaranteed stock in their circular they'll have it, and since it's sunday already they should sell it.
BoriboyShoGUN  +   414d ago
maybe, but there will be a line out there way before midnight! maybe a day or two ahead.
UNCarolinaBlue  +   413d ago
I understand there will/should be a line on LAUNCH night. I mean the Sunday after launch.
Grave  +   414d ago
I could go down to my local GameStop and preorder an Xbox One right now. Finding a PS4 (which I favor) is next to impossible. Even though I'll eventually get both I still might just wait a bit and see how it all plays out.

BoriboyShoGUN  +   414d ago
Can't blame you for that. I preordered way in June I need something new already.
Nocando  +   414d ago
No, no you can't.
maddskull  +   414d ago
you could try to get one at launch
ballsohard2013  +   414d ago
We'll here in NYC some people for whatever reason
Have cancelled their ps4 pre-order so I was able to
Put down $100 last night to get a ps4. If demand goes up enough, I'll off
My ps4 for a couple of dollars if it's worth the time and
Just kick back with my x1.

Not like we'll miss much while each system builds their library.
BoriboyShoGUN  +   414d ago
I assume those guys couldnt finish paying it off and cancelled the whole thing. Thats why I started early basically on layaway!
Bobby Kotex  +   413d ago
Because we all know the Xbone isn't selling out any time soon.
Hazmat13  +   414d ago
get on your knees and swallow the saltiest thing you know, your pride and beg for one.
Nocando  +   414d ago
I preordered about 2 weeks after the announcements and Amazon shows I won't be getting mine until January.
That_Guy2u2  +   414d ago
Does it involve a gun?
Cyanide85  +   414d ago
Got my PS4 with day one guarantee paid for so just have to pick it up :-) the thing that sucks the most is that I live in Europe and have to wait until Nov 29 :-(
luisloco  +   413d ago
come to Puerto Rico there xbox one like crazy without reserve. ps4 sold
Tunerboy8732  +   413d ago
As soon as GameStop opened up preorders I dropped 300 down on mine back in July and payed it off about a month ago.I knew they were gonna sell out quick.
Tzuno  +   413d ago
Buy a PC, you will be happy like a kid.
Sky Lazarus  +   413d ago
I work at target and this method will not work. Fail article.
dells17  +   413d ago
I also found it useful if you did not purchase a ps4/xbone but instead if you purchase a wii u you can fully utilize its power which is greater than a gtx titan.
