You wont be able to get one on black friday anyway, read my post on the last page for why.

If they actually do release right before black friday (I highly doubt they will) I think ill just wait a month or two so I know it'll be in stock and then get it. I dont mind waiting.

Retailers could easily reserve some for BF though. Walmart has their BF stuff in the store weeks before the actual day.

It is highly unlikely any retailer will get the PS4 more than a couple of days before the launch.  Hence the reason pre-orders are highly recommended for console launches.  In any case, the PS4 will NOT be a black Friday offering.

Maybe you should go someplace else for the PS4 launch.

 

Seems like your local walmart was very disorganized. Just like all of those Black Friday store videos of people climbing over each other like savage animals....

A store that is well organized, will not have those problems. If I have to drive 1 hour to the next big city to have a peaceful launch experience I will do it. I did it on the PS3's launch.

Doesn't really matter.  If the PS4 is released before Black Friday, there will be no PS4s to be found on Black Friday.  I can almost guarantee that.  In fact, there probably won't be enough PS4s available at launch to cover all the pre-orders.


Thats why there is a limit on pre-orders

Yep.

 

Like Amazon. They are out of the "Launch Edition" PS4. You can still pre-order the "Standard Edition" though (the only difference being you won't get one launch day)
