    Glad I got my launch day confirmation with Amazon with release date delivery. Taking the day off and going to be a kid at Christmas when the PS4 releases. Can't wait.

    Last time I was at my local gamestop, which was on June 25, they had over 100 PS4 pre-orders. Some dude with a Sony logo t-shirt was also there fixing up the PS Vita section. As the gamestop employee told the guy about the 100 PS4 pre-orders, the guy was unsure as to whether Sony can actually supply that much. He did say that he was getting a PS4 early though, the guy that worked for Sony.

    Well, it was only a matter of time before this happened. The volume of pre-orders probably did them in, and they're shutting down shop. Meaning, there will be a waiting list for the PS4, just like there was with the Wii U.

    Well, they lasted longer than I expected, to say the truth. I would've thought they'd stop accepting pre-orders a couple weeks ago.

    They might've run out already for all we know.

    So I haven't pre-ordered mine yet because I'll be going on vacation and want to have all my money for that.

    I plan to pre-order from Bestbuy, though. Anyone know how bestbuys doing with their pre-orders?

    I'm not really sure, but I think the only store that previously "re-stocked" on pre-orders was Gamestop, so BestBuy might've ran out already.

    Nooooooooo!!!

    Any possibility you know or anyone else know if pre-order amounts are based off city? Cause my city should definitely not have ordered much at all.

    all local stores are sold out

    best bet is still amazon launch day packages or walmart in september when they open layaway.



    also fun fact, almost every gamestop only can get 16 xbox ones per store. most gamestops report 50 ps4s or more.

    Good start and to be expected, just a bit sooner than i'd imagined.
    I'm kind of glad i don't have to worry about all this launch nonsense for once.

    Same! I don't have the money to buy one at launch, I just hope there not constantly out of stock for the months after launch when hopefully I can pick one up.

    I preordered mine the day after the price was announced at E3. I already had AC IV: BF preordered but on the PS3 so I switched it to PS4 and I preordered Watch Dogs last week.
