I am not proud of it, but I hung around that Saints Row car wash at E3 for a lot longer than I care to admit. They may not work for marketing, but they sure work at making other things happen.
Wow. I really feel bad for them. The Wii gave them such a false sense of direction and security.
Still a few days to wait before it'd ship, but securing a PS4 is a good thing no matter how you slice it. I haven't seen ANY in stores. However, I've seen packed shelves of Xbox One consoles at Best Buy, GameStop and Target. That said, I can't say if MS is just doing a better job at staying restocked, or if PS4 demand is really that much higher.
LOL - It's not that bad.
It's also great for Amazon right now, because everyone is going to choose two-day shipping to get it before Christmas. But that's a little pricey, so it could potentially move a lot of Prime memberships for Amazon at the same time. I bet they both knew this and worked out some last minute partnership to spur massive sales for each.
They're probably using the free two-day shipping option for PS4's to leverage Prime Memberships. I mean, it'd cost like $30+ for two-day, which is like half a prime membership. Might as well pay a bit more and get a year of free two-day shipping. Smart move.
I don't know, seems like Amazon got a good amount of stock. They even have bundles this time. Almost as if they were holding out to create this last minute feeding frenzy.
Can't blame them, that's what kept on happening the last few times.
Yeah, this is the longest so far.
Every time a PS4 is sold an angel gets its wings.
I did exactly the same thing. Got one for my brother who is a huge Uncharted fan.
For some reason I always read the word Minecraft with a heavy German accent. Try it, it's fun to say. Although I say it more like Minekrauft.
Oh shit you're right. Although each refresh it'll go back and forth between in stock and not.
Yeah, but the market is demanding more.
Let's hope so. Last time the dang thing sold out again in minutes. I'd hate to see the Xbox One win simply because Sony can't keep the supply coming.
That'll cause some trouble.
It will. Let's hope that they have a good stock so that PS4 can sell like mad.
How do these retailers make any money with deals like these? Or is the mark up normally that high all year round?
Yeah, man, that's just incredible. Everyone should jump on that.
Dude, you're like the best cousin ever.
