CCC Says: "So the PS4 is coming out this Friday and you didn't pre-order. At the same time, you still want to drop $399 and pick up a console on launch day. Are you out of luck? Not in my book. That kind of defeatist attitude isn't going to get you anywhere. Sure, pre-ordering was the best way to make sure you literally had a console with your name on it waiting for you, but you decided to take your chances. Maybe money was short, or maybe you didn't think demand would be so scorching hot. Whatever the reason, there's always a chance to get what you want. You just have to go to the extreme to make it happen."
