How To Get An Xbox One or PlayStation 4 Before The Holidays

If you're determined to pick up an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 in time for a holiday gift, don't expect the process to be all that easy or affordable,unless the holiday you're thinking of is Easter. Microsoft and Sony's latest video-game consoles just went on sale in November, and stock is likely to remain spotty to scarce through Christmas and beyond. (PS4, Xbox One)

Walk into a store, pick one up. I've seen both consoles several times in the past week.

Wow that was pretty stupid of you to pass on those PS4s. You could have sold them for $1000 each on EBay.

@Killzoner99 kinda hard to buy something when i cant afford it. That was pretty ignorant of you to make that comment

You may have seen piles of Xbones but there's no way you saw a single PS4.You can't find them anywhere. Glad I got mine day one.

I can't find any PS4s or Xbox Ones in my area. So I am not sure where you live - want to pick one of those up for me?

Well, everyone knows launch titles are perfect indicators of what kind of games the console will get. I think we all knew, given the quality of the PlayStation 3's launch, with titles like Call of Duty 3 and sports across the boards, that it would be a console with interesting titles like The Last of Us at some point.

@ SonyPony

I knew he was trolling, but I still wanted to make a sarcastic post.

I lucked out getting my PS4 two weeks ago. But if you really, really want one, either be prepared to pay for one through ebay, or frequently check the stores online stock indicator (if they have one). If any pop up, contact the store immediately and then be prepared to drive over right away.

That's what I had to do. Even though I wasn't planning on purchasing a PS4/XB1 until early next year, I couldn't resist the opportunity.

On a side note, check some of the other selling sites out there (Craigslist, Kijiji, etc). Sometimes you can find them at more reasonable prices and then you can physically go pick it up instead of paying some ridiculous shipping and/or import charges.

I finally got a PS4 yesterday. Got in line at 7:45 am, waited in 21 degree weather until 9:45 am until they finally passed out console tickets. Got inside of Best Buy around 10:05 am, instantly saw the formed line stretching from the front of the store all the way to the back of the store. I'd say when in line, there were easily 40 to 45 people ahead of me, but behind me there could have easily been another 60 or more! With more coming in by the minute. When I finally got to check out desk, and paid for my PS4 the line still almost to the checkout lines at the front of this store.

When I finally was on my way out, I asked a passing customer what time it was? He told me that it was 11:36am. On top of all of this, comes to find out the line I stood in was only for PS4's.

I don't know why you wouldn't pre order these things knowing the chance of them selling out.
