    Don't see the point of midnight launches anymore. Order online and maybe get the thing a day or 2 early without waiting in the cold.
    Trophy-licious!

Please be sure to confirm this with your local retailer so that you don't get mad at me if it isn't happening everywhere
    Hmm...that doesnt sound right to me. I'll still ask about it though.

    I will probably go out to my mall and scope the line out around 7 or 8.

    Do you guys think it's really going to be like certain Apple products with short supply and long wait times within half a day or so?

    Like the idea of a midnight launch but it get's way too cold in the UK in November, just easier to order online and wait on the day!

    Well in the UK Game are doing a que jump service.. If you pay two days before release you get que jump. Question is, most people will probably do this resulting in this proposition being a gimmick.

    lol yeah so it will end up with everyone paying two days before but not being able to que jump because everyone would have done the same!

    With the Best Buy by me splitting the lines, pre-order / walk up, I'll swing by around 11pm, if it's out of control, I'll pick it up in the AM. I have to wake up for work on the 15th.

    I'll arrive there at around 12. Only 50 some people will show up is what the gamestop employee said , so it shouldn't take that long. This is in a town of about 12k.

    Definitely going for my Gamestops midnight release!

    I remember literally camping out for the last generation systems. I did the Wii for 14hrs and the PS3 for 3 days out in front of a Walmart. Freakin epic!! People were bringing us food and I had pizzas delivered and it was awesome hanging out with all of the local gamers!

    that seems like way too much for one store even a sony store, The mega Sony stores in Australia would be lucky to get 6 for a store, the priority is everyone else and online.


    I'm heading to EB GAMES (GameStop) around 10:30pm, the restaurant I work at is literally 20m across the mall so I'll finish work, line up and wait with all the hooligans, might get my GF to meet me there to help me carry all the big boxes, there's a ton of accessories and games to pick up on launch.

    AND YES I lied, I've decided to not go Digital Only as of a few days ago, I'm going to mix it up just like i've done with PS3, I have the capable internet but Sony isn't being fair with its digital pricing so until that comes down I will continue to do what I do which is buy game X OR Y at the right circumstance e.g. GTA 5 I couldn't be screwed going to a store so I downloaded it, 2 hours later it was installed and ready.

    I'm buying Launch titles on disc because I'm afraid there's going to be some major online hassles on day one and I just want to set it up give the GF the second controller and play some games, Australia and New Zealand shouldn't experience any problems with online because we technically get the console a whole 9hrs before the UK and 15 hours in some parts of Europe but you just never know, Friday 29th November will be the most congested day for Sony networks ever.

    That's what the man said, he's been there for over 10 years. I wonder if it has to do with spike doing there launch countdown in NYC. Maybe the extra inventory is to make that event that much more awesome.

    You're right though it is a crazy number.

    *EDIT
    I should also add that the Manhattan store is the ground floor of the Sony America Headquarters so that could be a big reason why.

    What's the point in having an Internet connection if you're not using it to look up weird, ****ed-up pictures of dirty sex you'll never have yourself?

    Considering the worldwide launch begins in NYC they would be stupid not to have 3,000 units on hand at least.

    If you pre ordered back in june/july you're good. Otherwise you're getting it in the second allotment I think.
    Just a guess...

    So, if I preordered back like 2-3 days after E3 and have it paid off, and If I walk in around 4-5 on the 15th will I still be guaranteed a console?

    According to the guy who works at my Gamestop yes. But who knows? I don't trust them.
    I just hope mine will be waiting for me on the 15th.

    I'm curious, are you guys waiting out in the cold for several hours for a console that you're already guaranteed to pick up first thing in the morning next day no hassles and no waiting? or are you trying to get yourselves a console because you didn't preorder?
