Based on how the 360 launch went while I worked at gamestop I could totally see Microsoft acting like there's a lot less units then there are. I don't think gs is going to take too many orders. Doesn't make me worry any less yet but I have faith

I just got back from a 2 week vacation so I read the OP and the last few pages of this thread and I didn't see it mentioned but are any Best Buy's sold out of in-store preorders for the PS4 console?  I assume not since the website doesn't even have it available yet.


The OP should be updated because Best Buy's website has the PS4 console up for preorder.

i think someone  posted  before  even if you preorder at best buy your  not  100%  sure your getting one.. They are going to open at midnight and its first come first serve....  so  even if you have a preorder does not mean your getting one... that is why im staying away from best buy


WOOOO I STINK

That would not make any sense.  Why would a retailer take pre-orders only to do it that way.  I bet a store will put out a sign the night before if their whole allotment is pre-ordered so people don't waste their time.

Anywhere else other then gamestop offing trade in bonuses(not BB - their preordering is awful). Looking to get rid of a lot of my crummy 360 games(and my broken console) to put towards a new console.

Try ebaying. Probably your best return. I usually print labels at home and give to my mailman. Usually have tons of extra packaging. Amazon also does a trade in program, as does bestbuy.

Gamestop is offering the best trade ins right now.  You could just buy kindle cards and preorder from Amazon.

My local GameStop and Best Buy don't know what they are doing so I pre ordered at Amazon the day after the announcements and just received my email that I am getting a launch console which pleases me. I'm interested in trading my Star Wars 360 in at Amazon since they are offering 225 for it. It needs to come with everything correct? Also I've been hearing they are really picky too so is it even worth sending out there?

If you have everything it came with when you first bought it and it works the way it should you shouldn't worry about it. Just make sure you choose to have it returned back to you incase they do downgrade it for some reason. They pay to ship it both ways so it doessn't matter.

I preordered both via Amazon the day they went up. The remote play with Vita being a standard is way more valuable to me than a Kinect. I'm not sure Sony has even committed to a month to launch. Wouldn't it be great if they snuck it out in October!? It would be smart and they have been clever so far. They'd sell more 1st party games and have time for 2-3 more waves of systems to hit before Xmas.

I preordered the Watch Dogs bundle on Monday through Amazon finally. I plan on trading in a bunch of old hardware and games to GS for credit, which should be around $350 according to current trade in values/promos. I have another $80 in gift cards already which means I should only have to put around $38 in cash towards the system.

That's not true.  I did this for the WiiU and waltzed in on release day to pick up my set aside console.  Best Buy will definitely be a good place to get one day of.

 

Seconded. Doing store pickup at Best Buy might actually be one of the best ways to guarantee a console day 1 and not have to wait in some sort of horrible line. Doing the in-store preorder where you only have to put $25 down, however, is probably much less reliable.

I preordered the Launch version on Amazon after I received an email notification from them.  Since I have prime I should be guaranteed launch day arrival.

I preordered at Gamestop and traded in my 360 and most of my games and I have like $150 left to pay off! Woohoo I can't wait, oh and I preordered Battlefield 4.

I have one preordered from Amazon, but was going to cancel it and preorder at Gamestop because I expected they were doing a midnight release.  When I went in to day the sales guy said he didnt think Gamestop was doing  a midnight release for either of the consoles.  Doesnt anyone remember if they did a MNR with any of the older consoles?

Well I already pre-ordered mine at BestBuy a few days ago and today I was guaranteed to get it on launch date. Hopefully they keep their word and I don't have any problems on launch day.

I think GameStop sold Wii U consoles last year during normal hours, so they could get more bundled games/accessory sales.

It seems like that rumor a long time ago about like 10 million ps4s worldwide by christmas might be true if still doing preorders and amazon saying 2500 per minute

Decided to go with the watch dogs bundle, seems like the most fun out of the next gen launch titles besides Killzone.

ugh, i really hope this does not affect my pre-order by them over ordering. I really don't want to have to go out and camp out just to get my pre-order.


Want Amazon Prime for cheap? Send me a message for info.

No. You are normally given 48-72 hours to pick up your reservation. If it's not picked up, it will be sold to the general public and you will be refunded.

I would of probably of traded in/sold my PS3 already but I gotta play the last of us, and the PSN+ added some games I havent played like UC3 and Saints row3 and others.

 

Also it sucks that there is no anniversary madden 25 for PS4/X1 ... I may be forced to buy the PS3 version which I didn't want to do.

I just realized I'm going to have to buy a stand too.  Probably another 50 bux, hope one comes with the PS4 though.

 

Pre-ordered PS4 and Killzone.

Hmm im stuck on what site has the best bundle, i do like Amazon with bf4 and ps+ but i have a feeling Ea is going to do another premium edition so why waste money. Idk if i should pre order the watchdogs bundle, the game looks great but i have a feeling i'll get tired of it quickly.
