What was the point of the Kindle Fire bundle if they were just going to put up plain PS4's at the same time? Weird...

 

You save $20 on the Kindle if you wanted one

So, your wife would be okay with spending a grand on video games?

If they have extra PS4 at 399, I'm more than confident they'll have additional XB1s. I'm just mad I didn't buy games during the B2G1 free deal earlier this week.

I do find it odd that launch edition is available, but none of the ds4 and game bundles are.  I know for sure amazon can't be out of knack or are they?

Probably not worth it to them to deal with it.

 

This will probably be sold out by the AM

Resist. You'll be feeling great for like a day or two riding the launch high, but then a week or two later once the launch passes, buyer's remorse will kick in.

 

Wait 6-12 months, when there's actually decent library of games to play.

There are 23 launch titles. The most by any console at launch by far. I got deals on the bundle with Killzone Shadow Fall. Then I B1G1 on NBA2K14 which looks so much better than last gen. and NFS Rivals (not sure how this will be). Then I did the best buy deal and combined that with $50 gift card I got for them not having COD Ghosts PS4 hardened available at that midnight launch (picked up next day so I got free $50 gc). I used that with my 20% off new gamers club unlocked - Knack, Battlefield 4, and ACIV! No games my butt. :P

Quantity =/= Quality

 

And most of the games are multi-platform. Only couple of the games such as Knack and Killzone are exclusives for the PS4.

 

But hey, if that's enough for you, cool. I am just saying that with most people, it's easy to initially get caught up in the launch craze/high, only to feel buyer's remorse later on.

 

Edit: Believe me, I know the temptation. I've purchase systems at launch, and even had the PS4 pre-ordered on Amazon (and paid in full), only to cancel it shortly after the delay of Watch Dogs, and realizing what I personally felt to be sheer lack of quality/appealing software library at the PS4 launch, especially in regards to exclusives.

This.

 

People should have learned that lesson after the PS3 launch.

I bet a lot of eBay buyers will exploit the eBay return policy and just demand returns.

i feel no sympathy for those sellers trying to make a quick buck, they knew the risk, when sony announced they were preparing for scalpers, by holding back stock.

Why would they have learned their lesson after the PS3 launch? I managed to get a PS3 on launch day and literally sold it on eBay that same afternoon for $1500 and had it in the mail ready to ship out overnight the next morning.

Yet people still pay for launch items.  Seriously.  A crew of Arab dudes rolled up to GameStop tonight and offered $800 each for 5 consoles.

Because there were some people like you who found in financial success on eBay, there were other stories of who people who tried to flip PS3 consoles on eBay, only for it to backfire on them.

When eBay customers demand returns seller has to pay shipping most of the time, or else a negative feedback is most definitely left.

not really, sellers only pay for the return when there is a problem with the item, when it's buyers remorse the buyers pay the shipping and don't leave negatives.

How can you return an item on eBay if the seller specifically states no returns in the listing as well as the setting when initially listing the item?

you can lie and say it wasn't as described. Not that I would ever do that, but Ebay is beholden to it's buyers, not it's sellers.
