Late to the party here. Anyone think they will have some Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales/bundles?

I can see bundles for MSRP and maybe they'll toss in a PS+ subscription at a discount for Black Friday

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?"

Could've also just directed him/her to this thread about the Newegg pre-order sales: http://www.cheapassg...-free-shipping/

Haha.  I'm sorry, too, cuz I posted in the wrong thread; thought you posted the photo in response to someone who questioned your first post (can't remember which thread that was in...maybe they hid their post or I'm all confused and need a break...lol)

They did on the XB1 thread.

I posted on both around the same time.

:/ still apprehensive about jumping for launch consoles. o.o right now I'm just amazed mad catz is now jumping into the game with their own android console. I remember it was like 10 years ago mad catz brand stuff was cheap and unreliable.. now suddenly during this past gen they've reinvented themselves.

Android games on a TV?

ain-t-nobody-got-time-fo-dat-sweet-brown

But seriously. I don't see the appeal of Android games (a majority which are only good for pick up and play on the go) on a TV; the emulator apps, yes, but people already have PCs for that. There's just too many good games as it is on consoles, dedicated handhelds, and PCs.

Sadly, I think I'll be canceling my launch day PS4 preorder on Amazon. I have the PS4 paid off with gift cards but there aren't any launch titles that I want to play any more than the 150+ physical and digital games in my backlog of PS3/Vita/360 games. I've had every console since the NES days and I know I'll get a PS4 eventually. I think I need to worry about tackling the ever-growing backlog for now, though.

I'm right with you, which is why I never preordered in the first place.

I had a ton of games in my backlog for a while, I'm finally within 10 games now. I just had to learn that i don't have to take advantage of every deal posted here on CAG, since most of the games would be even cheaper if i waited to buy them, until i actually had the time to play them.

Im probably going to skip out on buying a PS4 too. I waited 3 years to buy a PS3. The PS2 was the only console Ive bought at launch. Im just not interested in any of the launch titles. I already have GTA V, and have only played it for an hour so far. MGS V is the only game that would convince me to buy a PS4 at launch. That game probably won't be out till next summer/fall. So Im in no hurry whatsoever for a PS4.

In 2014, sure. A couple weeks after launch, hell no.

 

 

No, I think you'll have a hard enough time finding a PS4 before Christmas, let alone a "deal".

Sorry I mis-worded that. I meant more along the lines of likely in stock. Not a "deal".

Saw this come up on the "Top Deals" portion of CAG and thought pre-orders were being taken again. I was sadly mistaken.

So changing payment method on Amazon gives up your spot in line, but what about upgrading shipping? I plan to re-up on Prime in November, and switch my order to *hopefully* free release date shipping, or ~$10 one day shipping.

I'm confused.  I changed the payment on both of mine on amazon, and they still have guaranteed delivery on Nov 15.

why are the ps4 going for $1000 on ebay? ebay has a policy where presales can't be sold until 30 days before launch. so actually there SHOULD BE NO PS4s BEING SOLD ON EBAY!

eBay or Sony shouldn't allow any to be sold, period. A least until after launch. That's money being stolen out of Sony's pocket.

I see some Buy-It-Now's asking $1000 but the ones with bids are in the low $600 range. After ebay and PayPal fees, the resellers are not really making that much (especially if an issue comes up).

Can anyone explain why people are selling PS4 purchase tickets from Walmart on eBay? I figure that it wouldn't work to take a PS4 pre-order from one store to another but people are making $30 - $70 on these.

eBay will abide by any guidelines Sony establishes. None-the-less eBay would prefer to make a profit today as opposed to waiting until November. Those that are rightfully selling on eBay have pre-orders of which adds to Sony's momentum. PS4's going for $2999 on eBay is surprisingly good for everyone (Sony, eBay, brick and mortar stores, online retailers, those that were able to purchase one or several) with the exception of those that were unable to obtain one.

 

Money being stolen out of Sony's pocket?!? :wall:

 

You do realize the items being sold are authentic PS4's, right? More importantly, when the PS4 leaves manufacturing it's shipped to fill an order. Whether the eBay 'seller' buys the actual console from Amazon, Best Buy, Game Stop, Target, etc., Sony has already made their profit.

 

Hey Romeo, did you know Sony sells the PS4 for less than the retail price of $399.99? :-$
