Congrats on the new job, buy the console and reward yourself. 

 

Thanks. It is more along the lines I won't have time to game much anymore since I have been unemployed.   :)

 

I know, from our discussion last time (you might not remember though). That's why I am congratulating you.

Reading on Neogaf it looks like camera is not included and hard drive size is 500GB

Just pre-ordered from Amazon. Had $70 in credit + $17 in cashback from my credit card. Very happy to only be paying little over $300 for PS4. Can't wait!

If I preorder at best buy, when do they actually apply it to the best buy credit card? Now, or right before launch?

 

The hold is applied immediately and renewed over and over until you pick up the system. So make sure you don't mind having $399 + tax reserved on your card for 5 months.

I should know this, but have never been in this exact situation. I went ahead and pre-ordered, but I plan to get and use Amazon credit to help pay for it. I know I can change pay methods before something ships, but does that include gift cards as well? In other words, can I "chip away" at the cost by applying gift cards throughout?

Finally you can pre-order. At such a great price why even wait.

When does BB charge you for consoles again?

Ordered on Amazon the moment it went up, and I'll be at Gamestop at opening.

Ditto.  Gotta pick up a few Disney movies as well at BB, so it will be fun shooting the shit with the gaming guys I know there.

Yep I do it all the time when I get more Amazon credit. All you have to do is go to the order page and it will ask if you want to apply gift card credit.

Quick question, I just pre-ordered on Amazon. I have a $25 GameStop gift card. Can I use that to buy a Kindle gift card and then apply that gift card to my PS4 pre-order without canceling it?

 

EDIT: Seems this was just answered!

I'll be surprised if Amazon's pre-order availability lasts through the week.

They will put a pre authorization charged immediately as well as ping your account several times until they item ships or is ready for pick up. This is of course assuming you are paying by a method that is tied back to a bank account.

 

If you use a true credit card I think it works differently.

I believe that I have done this before. Amazon is good like that. I have preordered a game, then used a promo code/gift card and put it towards the preorderd game.

Do they ping the whole amount or just random charges?

Yes, AMZ GC can be applied after the fact.

Just got home from my local GS. Had to put $100 down on PS4, but in true cag fashion I had some GS credit built up in anticipation of E3. They also convinced me to put $5 down on an extra controller. They didn't have any games available to pre-order yet but looking at the website I'm guessing they will in store tomorrow.

I know each release will be somewhat different but just curious do I need to worry about preordering accessories and games ahead of time or are there usually enough to go around during release?

I'll probably end up getting a One eventually, but PS4's conference definitely had me more excited so I plopped down my preorder on Amazon.  Cant wait til November.

I was on the Amazon page right when the conference ended, hitting F5 like a madman until the pre-order link appeared. Hopefully my fast pre-order will ensure I get one on launch day.

 

Also I took the Prime trial they offered me because i know from experience that Amazon screws over people that use FSSS, by prioritizing Prime order regardless of the order in which the orders were received. So take the trial if they offer it to you, because even if you cancel after the 30 days your PS4 will still ship with Prime since it's based on order date and not ship date.

I know pre-orders from Amazon don't charge until they ship but will there be a hold of the amount on my credit card until it ships? I'm a relatively new credit card owner and I've never pre-ordered a console before.

Same here. When I preordered the Wii U, they hit me for the full charge right away.  That's the reason I went with Amazon this time around.

Guys, there are a bunch of different ps4 bundles at gamestop.com right now. I think they just updated their page! $519 bundles get you killzone 4 etc.

 

Is this for real?
