    So in other-words; more than expected preorders may cause shortages for the first shipment; but afterwards things will get better and on top of that production of the system is going smoothly. It sounds to me like Sony wasn't expecting this much of a demand.

    Yeah I dont think Sony was expecting it either. Especially in the US.

    when things get into such high demand, there comes a point where you won't be able to match it. No matter how hard you try you won't keep up.

    So there is a chance that any of us that pre-ordered may not even get our ps4's for awhile?

    Thats why I think anybody who didnt preorder early will have to wait for more shipments. My local Gamestop has guaranteed me one on launch day because I preordered during the first allotment.

    I was about 2 days late before I pre-ordered, I was hesitant at first because usually the first batch of consoles have bugs in it.

    What shipment method do you have? If you have two day delivery, you should have it on launch day.

    not trying to start rumors but I hear the PS4 Netflix app is done and testing 4K streams. My sources wouldn't have any idea about XBO, so I'm saying nothing about that, i'd assume same.

    I waited about 2 weeks before I made my preorder and I was told I will have one. I have mine paid off, just need to pick it up once it comes in. I just hope I have one regardless; due to the high demand.

    I didn't preorder until just around 2-3 weeks of announcement. But I'm in little 'ol NZ and they've said I shouldn't worry.

    (They better give me mine *waves fist*)

    i pre-ordered through amazon and asked them if i get dibs on first shipments, and they assured me that I would. in fact, the bumped up my shipping twice. first they bumped up to one day shipping and aren't charging me for shipping, and i just got an email a few weeks ago stating that my ps4 is now on same day delivery without charge! i think its because i bought 399 dollars worth of amazon gift cards to pay it off. anyway they hooked me up!

    All I know is, when I ask the people at GAME and HMV when I can buy a PS4 here in the UK, they say they can't guarantee to have one before January.

    Damn dude, I am sorry to hear that. At least they are honest with you, because honestly if I do not have one after I was told I would, I am going to very disappointed with Game Stop. I can't truly be mad because of the high demand, its just that the sales person should be careful what they say. I also understand they need purchases and revenue, but still.
