It doesn't matter to me if it is or not. I have mine locked down. History has shown that they will be hard to find. Both of them.

 

PS3 wasn't exactly hard to find at launch.

Not all areas are big in gaming which will meet systems more easy to find my area is big for gaming so here they will be hard to find.

Im not sure what you mean.

 

Ill rephrase it for you gets then.

 

Based on my area, if you live in South Jersey, it should not be hard to find an Xbox One.

 

 

That better?

There will be plenty to fine because all the resellers will either be returning or taking a lost on eBay. Now for the ps3 in the Phoenix, az area they where plenty to find about a week after they came out.

I think for a couple of weeks they might be hard to find with Black Friday right around the corner but after that I doubt they will be too hard to locate. I don't have any proof tho and would like to state that this is just my opinion and by no way fact so somebody doesn't try to harass me.

Availability just depends on stock. I think first 3 weeks will be bad. Then around Xmas it will be bad.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

How dare your baseless speculation not correspond with someone else's baseless speculation!
As far as I can tell, there's only one way to resolve this before release, when there's actual data. Fight to the death, like a good old fashioned Kirk v Gorn match.

Man that's the only thing I'm gonna miss by ordering one on Amazon, I love doing these midnight launches :(

 

I usually do too and I've done one for every Halo besides ODST since Halo 2.  I got ODST early from Newegg or I would have been there too.

 

For a console like this though?  I don't really want to get home at 12:30-1am and then have a whole new system and a few games sitting there.  Because either I stay up forever and end up messing up my sleep schedule, or I have to go to bed within 3-4 hours of getting home (still going to bed at 5am) and not really having much time to fully grasp everything.  I don't mind waiting till the early afternoon and then having 12+ hours for my first experience.

People actually want the Xbox One though unlike the PS3.  Only place to find them will be eBay for $700 or more.

I don't think there will be a shortage. Targets around me still have 5+ Xbox One pre-order cards per store. They and others still have units for pre-order.


Is there a disadvantage to preordering at Target? (besides having to buy a game/accessory too)
I don't even see it mentioned in the OP as an option.

Nope. You out $10 down and when you pick it up you take $10 off a game/accessory (basically getting your $10 back).

I’m not saying they haven’t built a good system – I’m merely saying that anyone who wants to die on their sword over this 30%+ power advantage are going to be fighting an uphill battle over the next 10 years."
 
I love it.  I love it when Sony's propaganda is lined up one after the other.

Thank you for the reply.
Went and got one: there were 6 left and they were locked up to prevent hoarders.

It might just be 2 day. 

 

Prime usually gets bumped to release day.

Well this time there using nearly the exact same type/line cpu/gpu just the ps4 clearly has the better ram and cpu/gpu.  Since its not some custom made cell cpu this time its easy to tell which one has the better hardware.   In the end games will look basically the same,  MS has a more strict cert process so games could end up being less buggy and in turn may even run better.  But to say the ps4 isnt more powerful would be wrong,  it is.  But being a PS3/360 owner since they launched im going xbox one first simply because its UI and OS is leaps and bounds better.  Just by the videos ive seen of it.   Sony is sticking to a very updated version of the XMB which is disapointing.  But overall i cant wait for this gen to come, ill get both consoles eventually because if anyone thinks that both systems are not gonna get must have titles youd be dead wrong.

Didn't Mircosoft go on and on about how their 360 was more powerful as well?

 

They both do it equally imo.

Pre ordered from amazon months ago now they're saying we won't get it on release day unless we choose 1 day shipping.

 

Does anyone know if you can pre order from best buy, walmart, target, etc B&M without having to pre order in full and finish paying when it's released?

Where did they say that?

 

Honestly, people need to stop freaking out. People did this as well when the PS4 release date got annouced and everyone that had pre-orders on line had the date fixed within a week.

I did an online chat with them last night. I pre ordered when we first could to be safe and am keeping it at least until closer to the release date.  Really no point to cancel it.

Amazon did away with the separate release day shipping option a while ago, you still get it on release day if you pick the 2 day shipping option. I have mine preordered with 2 day shipping and the scheduled delivery date is Nov 22.

Cool thanks I'll have to change it to see if it updates.  The woman I was talking to via chat last night was a moron I was going to call in November and double check on it.

Well my amazon order got messed up and the customer service can do nothing about it, really wanted the day one edition. Is there any place still taking pre orders to pick up the day one on launch day or midnight?

I've still got my watch dogs ps4 bundle but that was really only ordered to be a back up. I'd much rather have the xb1

So when is everyone dumping their 360's? I would sell it now if it weren't for grand theft auto.

 

Why would you do that?

They are supporting the system for another 3 years. There will be plenty of games still coming to the 360 that don't see the light of day on the XB1.

 

GTA5 has not been confirmed next gen.

Biggest MS game that isn't on XB1 is Fable ANniversary, I wouldn't want to miss that either.

Next year alone I will buy Lords of Shadow 2 and Dark Souls 2.

Today my gamestop manager said they had 40 xbone preorders and 70 ps4s. I for some reason feel like they wont even have enough to fulfill every preorder. Am I crazy for thinking this? Either way im getting to that midnight lauch early.

I pre ordered from Best Buy, so they should hold one of the consoles for me despite any crazy lines at midnight launch, right? Technically I could pick it up the next morning also, no?
