    Post How did you purchase your PS4?

    Curious how many here pre-ordered their ps4's compared to trying their luck by getting in line on launch day and just getting it at the store

    GameStop and amazon. I was on vacation during E3 and reserved one on amazon as soon as the presentation was over. I wanted it local so I reserved one at GameStop when I got home. My brother in law bought my amazon unit.

    I preordered on Amazon.

    On Saturday, I walked into Best Buy and asked, they said check Geek Squad to see if any orders aren't picked up, those are coming off today.
    I scored one that way too to help out a buddy, only for him to tell me he doesn't want one now because he doesn't see any must have games yet. I was trying to suprise him and say give me the money but since he said that, i'll just figure a better way to sell it off without doing the ebay route, which, doesn't seem to be selling at high prices anyway, thank goodness.

    I like the article on how Germany ebay and Amazon are cracking down too, very nice.

    I enjoyed the post.
    I purchased both of mine with electrons which somehow registered a deduction from my bank account.

    I pre ordered at Best Buy because I figured everybody was going to pre order at gamestop. looks like I was right lol. This was my first pre order experience. Other times I was lucky to have gotten a ps ps2 and ps3 before Christmas in the store, one year it was a mom and pop video rental store., This year I decided to lay low from my usual thrill of the hunt. Im still hunting one in the store just to see if I could find one. But since the stores are holding them back for black Friday that sucks and I think its cheating. Takes the fun out of the hunt. On a side note, I found an xbox one at best buy. Wasn't looking for it either. It was behind the counter. Either a return, or some chap or lass, didn't pick it up yet.

    That sucks dude, my experience with pre ordering from best buy was good. I got mine on release day at about 3 in the afternoon. Best buy had their stuff together for me at least. I pre ordered mine like the 2nd day of e3 or whenever they had it listed for preorder.
