Best place to preorder?

10 replies 77 views Edited Jun 12, 2011

I am really excited about the Vita's release and am going to preorder but was wondering of one store would be more likely to ship release day than others? I've never preordered a system before so not really sure the best way to go? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

One other question-- will the Sony store take preorders? When should this happen?

Thanks

First off, do you want to do online pre-ordering or brick & mortar pre-ordering?

If this release runs like anything similar I am used to, the stores will have the PS Vita in about a week before they are supposed to be released. However they are not allowed to have the units available for sale until the day designated, so if doing the pre-order in the store, you will want to find out if they are doing a midnight release.

Most online retailers will guarantee you day of date if you order by a specific day & time.

GameStop, in my experience is good. Best Buy can also be a good option.

Thanks. I am going to do online pre-order. I'm not the type to wait in lines on launch day. I figured Game Stop was probably a good choice or Sony store if they put it up.  I was a little concerned about Best Buy based on how they handled the iPad 2 in stored

Reservations.

If you guys pre-order from Amazon. Please order through my shop .

http://www.chimeranpotroast.com/p/shop.html

It gives referral stuff for my website so I can expand it. If you did, please contact me so I can post your name in the wall of support .

Btw I pre-ordered from Best-Buy. The nice thing about pre-ordering from Best-Buy is that you can Pre-order it for only 5$!!

Went for the 3G one. I didn't buy an itouch for 2 years to save up for this. Worth the wait!
