Are we really supposed to believe Timbo is old enough to file taxes? ;)

 

Too busy filing those taxes to fight his phone's auto correct.

If the first chat rep on amazon won't credit you for tax being charged keep trying. Someone will give in eventually.

 

Also ask them to notate your account to always have credits issued to all your orders in the amount of what tax is.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

The amount of cheapassery here must be peaking when you are arguing over taxes.

I had to pay 32$ for tax thanks to Ohio's high ass rates, and I didn't complain to Gamestop

I did, I was all "I enjoy coming in and seeing you guys but I'm not standing outside in the middle of November to pay $24 more in tax!  So I'll buy these Kindle cards instead and everyone wins."

 

Edit- I totally missed this while deleting the email: Remember to buy Xbox Live for your PS4!

Looks like Amazon has taken a handful of games in to 'available' status instead of preorder - looks like Knack, Killzone and COD are all shippable.

 

I was at a Best Buy last night, and those same games were on the shelf.

This. Calling them up acting angry might be more efficient for this though.

I made off with an extra 140ish dollars thanks to Walmarts epic site fumble, so 30$ worth of tax to get it at midnight and not 5 pm the next day isn't an issue to me.

Shut up Timbo, no one on cag pays their Amazon tax at the end of the year.

not all states require it but i always did seeing my state did but now my state is charged tax so i have no choice. Any way was that really needed? i was just stating if your state requires it by law you are supposed to report any purchases you did not get taxed on. i for one enjoy have nice roads and other tax funeded projects.

"A friend with weed is a friend indeed, a friend with dill weed must be in a pickle."  Hello all, I myself could use some advice.  I preordered the PS4 back in June on Amazon.  Last month I dislocated my elbow and without insurance havn't been able to do much aside from a couple x-rays and treatments which has made me completly broke.  I really need to fix my elbow and surgery seems to be the answer.  I decided I can't afford the PS4 and could really use some extra money so I listed it on an Ebay auction.  I made one of the drop shipping/change Amazon shipping address listings that have been trending.  The buyer has a 3 year old account with 100% feedback.  I made a listing that followed all of Ebays pre-order guidelines and one that covered my ass.  EXCEPT for the "must have signature confirmation with $250+ orders."   Since Amazon would be shipping the item directly and I won't ever have it on hand I can't include signature confirmation.   I called Amazon just now and they said they would personally deliver the item.  It sounded kinda sketchy and I will be calling many more times to get as many responses as possible.

 

My questions is, has anyone ever been able to succesfully get amazon to add signature before the item ships out?  The rep said carrier information is not available to him as of yet.  I read that Nov 13th is prob when the item will ship out from Amazon so I only have 5 days to figure this out.  If I can't find a way to get signature confirmation from Amazon or through whatever carrier will be delivering this to the guy who won my Auction then I will be cancelling the whole Ebay listing and eating the neg. feedback.  This will suck because my Ebay account is 11 years old with perfect feedback from selling odds and ends.  I know this thread has had many people already warn people like me that there is a good chance I could be scammed and lose the $430 I will be charged for this PS4.  But I figure as long as I can figure out a way to get signature confirmation then I will be safe.  The fact that I have talked back and forth a few times with the winner of the listing makes me feel more confortable too.

Wow NCIX are being  tools with their PS4 preorders.

 

"Thank you for your preorder of PS4 sku 85519. Please note we will not be getting enough stand alone PS4 units; therefore, we are offering you the first chance to switch over to our current bundle deal sku 91431 (Sony PS4 Hardware BUNDLE-PLAYSTATION 4+ 2 CONTORL+KILLZONE Shadow FALL+49.99 Playstation Plus ). Please note this bundle deal is higher in price then your stand alone unit $569.99 vs. $399.99; however, If you wished to switch over you are locked in for one. It may or may not be shipped on launch date due to where you are on the current pre order list, but you are locked in for one at the latest will ship by first week of Dec. 2013."

 

Sounds like they are deciding they don't want to sell just the PS4 and now want to upsell you on a bundle. If you don't take it - then you get nothing.

So after watching the Xbox one dash demo, I have to say it is quite slick and has a lot of great features... but honestly that is the only thing that makes me jealous of it.  To me now the Xbox is an entertainment console, and the PS4 is a gaming console.  I want a gaming console!  I already have something for each thing the Xbox does, the Xbox just puts it into one and makes it easier to use.  But I am not willing to spend $500 on something like that

 

I would rather pay the $400 for my PS4 and play games!

I agree it does look interesting and ill probably end up with one sooner or later. I just can't get over the fact that's its essentialy a brick until you do over a 3 gig update.

The Xbox does look pretty sweet and it does have a better launch offering of games imo, but with all the paywalls and rumored technical shortcomings, I think the PS4 will give you a better experience over time for less money.

And to think just a week ago Xbox fan boys were flaming the PS4 for not being able to play DVDs or Blu rays without a patch :P

This is cool for sure. However, the 30 day PS+ will not stack (use the link above and see the reply to comment 2)

Why do these updates matter?

 

Seriously in this day and age if you do not have a solid internet connection... you should seriously bite the bullet and upgrade already. I am in no way worried for this. They said it should take about 15-20 minutes to DL. I would hope that with their insanely new servers across the world and with my good connection it should realistically take about 10 minutes.

 

And on a PS4 thread of all places to complain about an update...? I have lost desire in playing games at times when sitting and waiting for my PS3 to update!
