Just to add my experience, I bought a non pre-order PS4 from GS at midnight. The controller had the rectangles, no circles. Running strong (for now)

I think my PS4 and maybe Xbox One will be going to my cousin  for Christmas. His dad usually wants to get him everything and I'm just not feeling it yet. I played with the one in Gamestop the other day and I wasn't really that impressed. The only things I want to play are Contrast and that game coming out by the folks who made Bastion.

One of the most noticeable packaging differences was with the controller. On the broken one it had a large rectangular piece of plastic over the buttons and d-pad. The replacement has form-fitting circle's with cut out locations for the buttons and d-pad. I found it very odd that in the matter of a weeks that the consoles was packaged differently.

 

Team rectangle here, no problems at all. I got it from Amazon, quick question, where was yours made? It should tell you on the bottom of the console.

There's nothing quite like playing Need for Speed: Rivals when you know you're over the legal limit. I went to a wet seminar tonight and afterward blew a .083 in the DUI van. (A wet seminar is a course put on by the local police department to show law enforcement officials what it really takes to blow a .08 and get above the limit so, no, I wasn't arrested for DUI.) I wish my Origin account was working so ya'll could experience this.

My amazon unit had the form fitting circles with the blue playstation seal. That unit malfunctioned afterwards. The replacement I received at the sony store had a clear seal and the rectangular tapes over the controller buttons.

By any chance were your box seals different?

 

Nope. Both blue Sony seals

Contrast is a nice game and better, I think, than most of the reviews indicate. However, you can finish it in one setting and get all the trophies either then or with a little post-play mop-up. It pretty much has no replay value. So definitely don't get a PS4 just for that - but it is a nice bonus and I'm counting on something every month from PS+ so that's my main reason once I finish up Knack and get my fill of NBA 2K14.

Last year, launch day Wii U had no hdmi issues. Last week, launch day ps4 had no hdmi or HDD issues. Today, launch day xbox one has no disc drive errors. I'm officially 3/3 for the next gen without any defective units. Man...I'm relieved.

Dang it. Looks like TRU gave away their non-picked pre-orders for the PS4 today. Anybody got some (B&M only)?

 

I'm hearing BestBuy is going to do the same tomorrow. If you want one, have to camp out before opening time tmrw.

My store has 7 in stock to sell tomorrow but they are ticketed items which means you must get in line and get a ticket to be guaranteed to buy one. I THINK you also have to be a My Best Buy Elite member

Anyone looking for the Xbox One, the console is currently available on Amazon with prime shipping.

The PS4 was available till few minutes back but got sold out before I could think over whether I should get one now or just wait :)

Still havent bought warranty for my launch ps4. Is it worth it for launch units? My ps3 is still running strong after all these years but it wasnt the launch one. I didnt buy warranty for that. Is it really worth it?

It all depends.  I always buy a warranty on launch units anymore.  The 360 pushed me over the edge.  IMO it's better to have a console warranty for 3 years because most of the actual problems with the systems shake out in the first year or two.  It's too soon to tell if it'll be "worth it" from a product perspective.  But I also buy First Party warranties because I'm inherently skeptical about side warranty groups.

This guy in the UK paid £450 for what he's holding up.  The ebay description did not mislead, but the dude dismissed it anyway since it was listed under videogames.  He was also a father at age 15; you just can't make this shit up. :dunce:

SquareTrade offers very affordable warranties. I would recommend it. My Launch PS3 died after 18 months. My super Slim died in October and with my SquareTrade Warranty I got a $279.99 gift card for Amazon. Waiting for them to stock more PS4's right now so I can upgrade.

 

SquareTrade will either fix your item or send you a check or amazon gift card if something is wrong. $79.99 for a 3 year warranty that covers drops and spills. If you like them on Facebook they often put out codes for big discounts. Cyber Monday they had coupons for 45% off a warranty. 

 

Good Luck!

Link to original auction? If its listed under wrong category, I would say he has a case. If it was listed under Photographs or something like that, then that's a different story =]

Like the article says, it was listed under consoles, Ebay has already said they would refund, it was just funny that someone bought it...

They do it because someone is bound to eff up and buy something that is not what they thought.  It's the lowest form of douchebaggery out there.

It was under the wrong category for the actual item, but it was listed as a photo.  I think he should have to eat it as a life lesson personally.  Don't be stupid next time and question the seller what "photo" means.  A fool and their money. . .

It is douchey I agree but not completely dishonest either.  The seller described it as a photo in his listing anyway.  If he was a pro at this, he would have used another category so he was still honest in his somewhat dishonest intentions.  With the way searches under eBay work, I'm pretty sure the buyer would have come across the Xbox One listing anyway had he used photos as his category.  The buyer apparently is lacking a lot of fundamentals yet he's already raising a 4 year old .... pretty sad.

I went into GS yesterday and an employee was telling me how a seller on craigslist came in and asked to use one of their power outlets to show his buyer that his PS4 was working.  Needless to say, she denied him and told him to leave. The audacity of some people lol.

When you post an auction for a picture of an item, with a price tag that is similar to the actual product, you are intentionally being dishonest with the hopes that someone like this guy will come along and jump at it.

 

I saw a similar auction for a picture sitting at $499.99 with minutes left and wondered why it was still there when others were going for hundreds more.  And then it hit me.

 

But if I was really interested in the product, and had to have it, I might have jumped at it too.  The thing with eBay is it is very easy to forget to read the details

 

Is it a good life lesson for this guy?  Absolutely.  Should he lose $750 equivalent in GBP currency for the mistake?  Absolutely not.

I went to Gamestop and they had over 10 in stock. You may want to look, if you are in need. I'm sure because of the snowmageddon here nobody knew they were there yet.
