Amazon has started upgrading Standard Edition PS4 pre-orders since they have received additional stock.
All the stars are aligned for PlayStation it seems... A lot of people are going to be happy this holiday.
Exactly. Greatness awaits!
It does indeed.... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yes, I was notified of my upgrade this morning. A very pleasant surprise.
lol i t would be hilarious when the One go third
This launch will have real shortages. Because its actually a great product. We still have time for more announcements before launch too. I'm sure we will be the lucky ones that jumped in early. The mid night launches will be a disaster. I'd love to get one at mid night but glad I avoided that scene. People will be pissed when they line up and don't get one. This could actually help Microsoft sell systems if Sony cant meet demand.... Imagine you were a kid and you asked for a ps4 and Xmas day you rip open your present and its an X1 lmao. Oh the disappointment.
XboX one will also upgrade to PS4 Launch Day Edition
@ Astargatis LMAO... Bubbles for you, that was hilarious, ...LoL .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
hahah funny. off topic:LAST OF US is amazing ,im 2 hours since I fired up the Blu Ray and man ,great game.now back to playing it :) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I fired it up last night "just to see what it's like", and that first scene was awesome. Then I turned it off, because my 8-year old wants to watch me play.
Holy shit, Amazon upgraded my order to launch edition <3
Come on walker! You should have pre ordered the original launch edition in the first place :P Lol anyways, good thing you're getting it at launch now.
Amazon DE top 5: 1. PS4 2. The Last of Us 3. Animal Crossing 3DS 4. XBox One 5. Dual Shock 4 Never thought a company would screw up that bad that people are more excited about Animal Crossing for a handheld than a new console launch.
Any real gamer would've gotten a launch day edition as soon as it was available.
Not the broke ones.
Put it on a credit card they don't charge you until it ships. Save up your money until release date and tada!
i tried doing that but it wouldnt let me because I barely had money in my account at the time. But I got one reserved at gamestop
If you're really concerned about having the money in your account on shipping day, you could buy an amazon gift card for the amount and use that to pay at time of checkout. Then everything will be set.
Any "real gamer" (what a stupid term) would be smart enough not to move to the new box until there's a game or two worth playing on it.
I think real gamers aren't fanboys, they appreciate the strengths of each system and game on multiple platforms. I preordered PS4 and Xbox One. I play mostly PC games now though but I have PS3. I also have Vita and 3DS *EDIT* I was just explaining the term as I saw it. I did buy launch PS3 and 360 and original Xbox. I didn't have issues with my 360 however I did get the new model when it came out. I dunno it's kind of fun to be one of the first
Replying to your reply. You completely missed my point. I'm not saying get one or the other (though on principle alone the Xbox One is screwing people) I'm saying this mad rush to get the new systems is ridiculous because there's virtually nothing to play yet unless you're a super fan of Killzone or Killer Instinct.
That is true about what is said about those "two" but Since my ps+ can be transferred over Ill have plenty to play if my catalog is anything to go by I'll be ok for the most part.
I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to playing Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, Infamous Second Son (January release), and Drive Club as soon as I get my PS4. I don't know how you consider that nothing to play, especially since I will pick up a few indie titles on top of these. How many games can you play at once? All you really need is one, actually.
I waited for the bundle...just picked up the killzone ps4 psplus bundle for 499 as my plus subscription will lapse in December. Perfect timing. Coincidentally, my xbox live gold subscription will also lapse in december, but I have no intention of renewing that service nor purchasing an Xbox One.
how do you guys know if you have the launch day or standard. mines doesnt say. i did order mines the same day as sonys conference, if that makes a difference. in actuality, im not too worried about this one cause i already got two paid for woth gamestop >=) but i wanted to know anyhow. EDIT: it does say "shipping estimate Monday January 6, 2014".
You should be good, ordered mine the next day in the morning when it was still launch editions.
nice. thanks. bubbled you up.
Go to amazon sign into your account and search for the ps4. When you get to the ps4 product page you will see a box for standard and launch. Click on the launch box, if you see a yellow bar at the top saying you have that version your good. Or you could contact support. I did both, haha.
thanks for the heads up. bubbled you up as well.
I never received the email confirming I had the launch day edition(ordered within seconds of it going live Monday). But I did get the yellow banner at the top when I selected that tab. They removed that tab however so BeaAuthor's suggestion won't work anymore. I emailed them to confirm I had it but haven't gotten a response yet. If your concerned though, for a quick check, download your order history from the account page, then check the ASID number. The ASID for the launch edition is B00BGA9WK2 I'm sure they're getting tons of emails about it since they've officially released info about it, but you could email them and get a confirmation too. At the very least you could add a bundle in there now if there is one you want. Secure that, then just cancel the order later if you want to be 100% sure.
I am just hoping i can get my hands on one this holiday :P
My GameStop originally told me they were allowed to preorder out 20 PS4. When I went there yesterday to pick up The Last Of Us, I asked how the preorders were going and they said due to demand they were given 16 more.
Hope mine gets upgraded. :D
I know about 4 people that canceled their amazon pre orders because our local gamestop said they had more pre orders for launch.
Seems like things are lining up nicely for Sony. Wonder how Xbox One stock is doing? Been rumours about production problems for a while now.
i want one :) Not sure if i'm getting mine at launch or not. Depends on my financial status then. I'll either get it launch, after x-mas or when they make a ps4vita bundle.
I just hope that they can deliver on all preoders on launch day.
There has been a race, right? Which console has more pre-orders on plattforms like Amazon, where People who work there are living a modern form of slavery, right? And then People like you come here and be happy about your joy and their slavery.
Not trusting amazon on this. What if All Queda takes down the servers and my order doesn't arrive on time? I ordered thru GameStop and I will be there at midnight. What if I waited til morning but a tornado hits at 4am and destroys building? NOT TAKING ANY DAMN CHANCES!
What if both of those things happen (I hope none though)!!! I preordered at 2 different Gamestop ( since they always sell my stuff 'cause most of the time I cannot go on launch day even though I completely pay my preorders before hand ) and 1 on a Bestbuy, Hopefully I get at least 1 of the 3, else I'll be pissed off... And If I get the 3 I will keep 2 and give one to a friend! On topic, It's nice to see many bundles and preorder but I hope Sony can make enough consoles, they always make too few consoles on launch, and seeing the demand the PS4 has right now, it would be sad to see many preorders getting pushed until the 2nd stock arrive, forcing people to wait a little bit longer than they expected ...
Got my ps4 pre order. Im more excited and hyped for this even more than the ps3/xbox launch. Its going to make history.
I'm hoping they don't delay release even a day to allow more to feel happy having a "day one" PS4. Everyone else can wait a couple days. :P
How long will this last?
Until they run out of allotment to sell. Same way it happened with GS and the original launch version on amazon. After that you'll be on the standard edition I assume.
I want mine day one
I'd recommend just putting one in your cart then. They don't charge you until it ships.
It's confusing to me how you have to change to "two-day shiping" even if you were at "one day shipping".
Pre-orders get shipped out 2 days before they're supposed to be released. 2 day shipping insures you get it on release day. Some people occasionally report that they get pre-orders a day early...probably live near the shipping center. One can hope to be that lucky...I never am, but I can hope.:)
They upgraded me to Launch day and gave me free day of shipping!
