    I pre ordered one at GameStop and one at best buy. My gamestop had a midnight launch so I got it there and let the one at bedtbuy self cancel. Hopefully some one on the bestbuy waiting list was happy.

    They let me down and Bestbuy is the worst place to pre order from. People who live in other city that is far from my place about 2 days they got their PS4 on launch date and the PS4 were shipped from the same place that my system was shipped. I deleted all my information from stupid Bestbuy and never buying again from there. It just indicate how stupid they are and so on. You are lucky you got it on Friday and the funny thing is my friend. People who live 5 minutes away from Bestbuy warehouse didn't get as it happened to me.

    I pre-ordered in two different online stores, about three and a half months before release, and I won't be getting one on launch day (29th). At best I will get one in december, but it might even be in january or later if I'm unlucky. It really sucks sometimes to live in a small town in a country that's at the bottom of the list to get PS4's. I heard that in Stockholm and other bigger cities in Sweden, people can queue on launch day to try to get one. I don't know who the biggest suckers are, but I certainly feel like I'm one of them right now.

    I wrote this earlier. Today I got a message from one of the stores that I pre-ordered at, that said that I will be getting my PS4 on the 29th. Got this message 2 days before the release. Apparently enough people cancelled their pre-orderes so that I could get one. Happy Days! Now I just hope there's good games available in the store on launch day (I'm picking the PS4 up in the store).

    I pre-ordered from Amazon as it was my only choice. We won't officially have the PS4 here until next year...

    I find it odd as hell the the closer you seem to be to Sony the longer you have to wait....It is a exaggeration of course but not by much

    I pre-ordered it and waited till the next day to pick it up. No point in waiting in line during launch night just to screw up my sleeping arrangment.

    I preordered because I'm not a $#@!head

    I preordered on 16th June because that was the day playstation Australia announced that PS4 would be launching this year in Australia alongside Europe, I was going to preorder straight after E3 but wasn't sure what sony would do for the PS4 in Australia, I know the PS Vita was released in Australia first before any other western country but I thought that might just be a one off !

    Pre-Ordered with GAME on announcement day, the only hiccup I've had is that the Auth to use my PayPal account ran out a long time ago... but they rang me straight away when they started processing orders and gave them new payment details.

    Got my tracking code this morning, It's currently in Newbury and will be with me early tomorrow morning. I have the tracking page refreshing every 30 mins to make sure I don't miss any progress.

    Roll on the days when we get a feed from a camera mounted to the grill of the delivery truck so I can see it driving up to my door, or better yet... GPS tagged parcels so I can see it moving anywhere at any time!

    No surprise that the forum user pre-ordered outnumbered those who stood in line. We're the one's aware before the average Joe.
