So if I go at 9:30 to pay and get my pick up ticket, do I HAVE to use the ticket at the midnight launch? Why not just get the ticket and come back whenever it's convenient on Friday?

 

They would have to honor the ticket if you paid for it... I mean, what if I buy a ticket and then my wife goes into labor?? (I'm not even married, just making up an example...)

"We will open up our doors at 9:30PM" Can someone explain this. It just seem right that their store be closed  all day until 9:30 PM.

My first console launch but is that how most retail handle it?

Looks like typical store hours on a Thursday are 10am-9pm. I imagine they'll kick everyone out and close down, get things set up, and open back up at 9:30.

Just let the employee know when you get up to pay not to mark it as picked up and then just sell it to you. That way you dont have to wait the 24hrs to return rebuy. I've done this several times with no problems on other items.

 

 

I'm going to go in and talk to a manager before the circus of the launch and see if they will let me do that.  Much easier than return/rebuy.  Just curious, is the revenue for the store the same on a BB.com purchase picked up in the store versus something just purchased in the store?

Best Buy having an influx of stock has me willing to check them out on Friday, with a ton of stuff ready to trade in.

The 24 hour wait on returns from dot com was eliminated with an OMS update about a month back. You can now return or exchange pretty much immediately.

Man, where are you located?

 

I am in Dallas. Amazon just cancelled my day-one order without any notification. I was told the system cancel it automatically, and they cannot help me to place an order, because all PS4s in their warehouse are oos. 

 

Probably I would like to get one from BB or Frys. I wonder if I need to wait in line that early??

 

Well as far as the whole Sony thing I am pretty sure they stated that they would try to distribute as many ps4s as possible. My manager showed the 10 stores around ours and each have reservations between 75-100 and are receiving a total of 200+ within the first week of release.

Well the reps at the Bestbuy I frequent whom I've been dealing with for awhile now have told me that they have 250 preorders between the store and in-store pickup and was told that they have about 130 extra units to sell for those who didn't pre-order so it seems they maybe be the best place to go if you didn't preorder.

That store is fairly small ... Fox point or Mayfair might be your best bet.

That store is less than 10 minutes from my work though and I work till 10PM :(

Dudes here sound like the GameStop thread. If there's a unforeseen event, they will more likely hold one for you. Last thing they want is handling out gcs for overselling a ps4.

The ticket is probably a receipt just like GameStop where they stamp and/or sign to confirm that you got it like the store pick up slip. It might be like Black Friday where stores give out tickets and wristbands.

They just to want to speed things up, get everybody out of there and go home.

I don't get why people think this will be hard to get. Sony said there will be plenty. Plus the console has TWO LAUNCH GAMES and less features than promised up front.

I hate the xbone and will get a PS4, but unless you're a diehard Killzone fan it's quite silly.

I can't imagine that these 2 systems will be easy to find on the stores shelves this holiday.  Every console I can recall in recent memory was difficult to find except for the Xbox and Gamecube in 2001.  The only reason I believe they were easy to find is that everyone purchased a PS2 already at that point.

There's nothing bad about it except for the price. People just like to complain.

First time I have attended a midnight opening at BB, so forgive me for the ignorance, I just need to see if the experienced midnight opening shoppers can help clarify this for me.

I have a PS4 preordered and paid, with the exception of the tax portion. I have picked up and have in my possession everything else I preordered (extra controller, 3 games, charging station), so literally all I need to do is pick up my console. My concern is, when do I have to show up? Do I have to show up early? Or can I show up at 1130PM, jump in my appropriate line, and I will still get my system by at least 1230 I guess?

exactly, best buy warranties are awesome, they replace everything for me on the spot. they literally tell me to walk over to the and pull a brand new one off the shelf and just replace it.

yeah, i agree, the wii-u was really hard to find.

Their unlocked epic gaming package bundle is such a joke. Making you purchase 2 full retail games (while B2G1 is going on) plus an extra controller (some of us don't need one right away) plus 2 years of Live/PSN (at a price hike mind you) and some useless (and expensive) coverage thing you don't need. No thanks..

Hope BB does a B2G1 at some point. Have a bunch of BB credit that I want to use. I already picked up some PS4 games (Knack and 2K14), so was hoping to pair Killzone with two Xbox One titles somewhere (Like Dead Rising/Ryse, DR/Forza, Zoo Tycoon/Forza, or some other combo).

i can guarantee you people are going to pay it. If thats moves you up the line to get one at midnight without a preorder than people will pay it. They know what they are doing. People are paying $600 on ebay for just the console. Its pretty much price gouging, but they been doing this for a while during the holidays. They have those nicely packaged consoles on the tables with all the same stuff and uninformed parents jump all over like how they setup laptops packages during the summer.

Every time I get the next gen itch I go look at my spreadsheet of games I own but have not played.  Counting PS+ I am hovering around 200.  That snaps me back to reality. No money and time to get one of these. 

 

Same here, given the really weak launch lineup as well, there is just absolutely no reason for me to need one of these consoles anytime soon.  I won't get tempted until next March when Thief and Titanfall come out.

 

Plus if they release Walking Dead season 2 this year, that will keep me quite busy as well.
