PS4 Pre-Order Launch Day Bundles at Amazon Dominate Movers and Shakers

TheHDRoom: "PlayStation 4 pre-orders for the Launch Day edition sold out several days ago at online retailer, yet the guaranteed launch day console is still appearing in the top three bestsellers chart that is updated hourly. That's possible because of some console and game bundles that are picking up pre-order steam."

thank god for those launch edition bundles! I pre-ordered the Killzone one for $499.90 and it comes with 1 year of PS+. And with no tax and free shipping this thing's a really good deal to me.

TMRBac1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

I agree. I missed the first Launch Day consoles and these bundles aren't forcing the camera or a second controller, neither of which I want initially.

Wait no tax? where do you live? i'm certain that amazon has tax. I myself am waiting for newegg to allow me to preorder since they have no tax.

@below look at the article, its all on amazon

2pacalypsenow1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

Amazon doesn't charge Sales tax in some states

These are the states which they DO charge Sales tax

New York
North Dakota

I got My launch Edition PS4 for $407.97 with 2 day shipping (shipping is $8)

OhReginald1949d ago

No sales tax in illinois. So happy :)))

ssj271949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

wait why I'm been charge with tax? if I'm in California..
fishy.. are you guys sure you are not getting taxed in california when you buy a PS4?

should I call amazon and yalee the #$%#$ out of them?

FlameHawk1949d ago

^^^^, re-read the comment..... it says DO. it does not say you don't have to pay taxes, it says you DO have to pay taxes in California.

ssj271949d ago

thanks for pointing that out..
they used to not charge tax in California.. I guess thats has change..
Amazon is not as cool anymore for californians haha

medman1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

I hate to break it to you guys but it is possible that Amazon will be taxing in the majority of states by the time the PS4 launches. It sucks but it's true. There is a big push for Congress to change the law to support the brick and mortar retailers and online shoppers will suffer for it.

Hold up... Are you telling me u got a ps4 bundle with killzone and a year of plus for $499? Where?

Soldierone1949d ago

Amazon has a bunch of games with PS Plus instead of the extra controller or camera that GameStop throws at you instead.

Killer deal, I'll just stack it on my year I already have :D

I had tax, but got another free trial of Prime so I got free shipping :P its amazing tax is more than friggin shipping..... by A LOT.

kingkobra2xxx1949d ago

Got mine too, same bundle at amazon, cant wait!!

PLAYWATCH1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

In terms of price, it's no big deal because you're saving $10. However, I just learned that the key part of all of the bundles is that it is guaranteed launch day delivery with 2 day shipping. You should verify again just to be sure.

i put 100 down @ gamestop when i picked up "The Last of Us" friday.

Jaqen_Hghar1949d ago

as did a man! Free 2 day shipping saved him $30 while he also got a second controller and the PS4 camera. A man will be enjoying PS4 on launch day thanks to Amazon.

Can a man kill the Xbox One?

Jaqen_Hghar1949d ago

if a user offers a name to the red god...

ssj271949d ago

I mad.. anyone who got it from CA is getting tax free?
can anyone confirm this?
so I can all amazon and make them not charge me the taxes.. I usually get no tax fee in Amazon but this time i'm..

GraveLord1949d ago

I bought two. one for me and bought one for my friend on his account.

SpinalRemains1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

I'm not understanding something.

There are many who ordered a ps4, but they will have to wait due to ordering the standard edition.

Did Amazon receive an OK to preorder more launch units, along with the games, or are the new bundles from Sony with the game in the same box?(sku)

If so, that actually sux.
Someone who preorders just the console, a day earlier, will still have to wait because the bundle combo is now launch?

2pacalypsenow1949d ago

The launch day consoles are guaranteed to ship on launch day.

SpinalRemains1949d ago

yes. They're called launch consoles.

OhReginald1949d ago (Edited 1949d ago )

they can just cancel the standard edition and pre-order these new launch bundles.

HammadTheBeast1949d ago

Not sure about the second part. But apparently they got a new shipment, and bumped up a lot of standard pre-orders to launch ones.

PLAYWATCH1949d ago

My standard edition was upgraded to launch edition last night by amazon and notified me via email. They said they got the ok from Sony.

Also, I was told all of the bundles are launch day guaranteed as well.

SpinalRemains1949d ago

You have cleared up the issue.

GraveLord1949d ago

Launch edition consoles are guaranteed to be available on release day. If you ordered the standard edition, it might not ship to you on launch day.

Basically launch edition consoles and bundles get priority over the standard edition.

does any one know if digital downloads will transfer over from ps3 to ps4...i bought last of us digitally thats all ha

Jaqen_Hghar1949d ago

no. A game would still need to be re coded for PS4 whether it's digital or disc.
