I suggest waiting for the PS6. By then, he'll be able to find a ps4 for super cheap.

 

Not a bad idea. The PS1 is dirt cheap now (did you know it also plays CDs? Even the new PS4 can't do that!). But I'm going to hold off altogether and just get the upcoming Dreamcast 2.

But they can offer an incentive to those that want the bundle by allowing them to go in their own separate line. They are not technically cutting but they are in their own line that gives an incentive by getting a console.

 

This is absolutely false. No priority can be given for agreeing to purchase this bundle or anything else. Priority will be given to the order people line up for those that haven't preordered.

 

Anyone who has preordered will have a separate line and they will be able to start paying for all of the things they want to buy starting around 10pm. You'll be able to start picking your purchases up at 12:01am. Should go pretty slick.

130? That seems unreal, did you ask a manager for that info?


No I'm cool with a few of the reps in the store and they wouldn't lie to me because they know I flip and everything and don't care. This store is a high volume store and they 1 of the top stores in the district when it comes to trade ins (probably I help contribute a good amount to that) so take my info for what it's worth.

I would not get the ultimate bundle.....maybe the COD bundle if they let me cut for that since I'll need an extra controller anyway and know people who will be playing Ghosts.  I'll suck up the PSN for that.  At least I am getting something beyond what is on CL and EBay.

This is geared for the rich/parents. No thank you. I'll wait anyways until next year for BF deals/any bugs to be fixed for the PS4. My game log is massive anyways for the PS3.

 

If they dropped the Geek Squad & the GCU, then it would appeal to more people I bet.

They may not be giving priority.  What I imagine is happening at those stores is we have 100 PS4s 40 are preorders and we have 20 bundles.  So 40 other systems will be sold without a bundle but once those are gone the bundles are what you must purchase.   I know at BF they did this with a number of laptops at my local BB.  If you would not pay the extra for the stupid BB Geek squad package you could not get the deal price.

 

This is just my opinion based on how they made crap bundles in the past.

Yeah the warranty sounds worthless.  Getting a refurb is not a good deal.

This is not what was communicated. No forced bundling allowed at all on the gaming systems. If a customer wants to just purchase the system alone, they can and should be able to. If you see or hear of this happening at any stores, please post the location back here if you could.

 

The discounts for the package apply against the games and the Unlocked membership which then gives you the 20% discount on new software purchases and some additional benefits for the next two years. So if you don't want those things, just purchase what you want which will all be at the price listed in the ad (full MSRP which is what you'll see everywhere).

I called my nearest store at 6.45ish to see if they were doing that 9.30 thing.  Said there were already people lining up.  Think I'm just gonna wait a few weeks now, see what happens with these failing units and all.

Does anyone have an idea of how stores are handling the xbox launch and black friday together? like to the guy who said he was going to kmart, are they releasing the xbox at a certain time with a separate line? 

I'm not sure what you are asking since the XBox One is not released on Black Friday, it comes out the week prior.

I guess for those who did not preordered the ps4/xbone, bestbuy might their best chance in getting one.

Oh wow. You called it "xbone." You are so cool and original!

Had people showing up from 9:30 until I went inside at 10:45 thinking they were getting in line to get one.  Store had about 35 in stock.  People were trying to offer us $100 for our spots.  Other than that it was pretty orderly.  No way any of us were giving up our spots to the people showing up at 9:30...well, we did say for $400.

 

They could not force any package on you where we were at.  They were trying to say that they had the absolute best warranty coverage since it included 5 items - as long as you purchased them there.  However the Squaretrade option is cheaper and lasts longer if you want one.
