PlayStation 4 Pre Orders

14 replies 808 views Edited Aug 28, 2013

I cannot seem to find PlayStation 4 pre orders anywhere right now. I called Best Buy and GameStop, and they said they are not taking pre orders at the moment. I ask them if they are going to be taking pre orders any time soon and they say no. I call different Best Buy/GameStop locations and they say they are not going to be taking Pre Orders at all up till the release of the PS4. The thing that gets me confused is that why they would say they are not going to be taking any pre orders now and until the release of the PS4 if there are still 2 months left. Does anyone know when pre orders will be avaliable at all in the location of the Bay Area in California?

it means there supply demand has been met and they can't open up the flood gates and guarantee you a day one console unless sony increases the demand with more consoles manufactured and ready to be shipped. Did you try target and walmart? I am 4 hours from the bay outside of Sac. Its a small town full of xbots I believe but even there PS4 preorders are at a halt now.

More pre-orders might open up in the future, all you have to do is wait. You could also go to a store on launch day, they usually have extra systems to sell then. If not then just wait, it's never a good idea to get a new console at launch anyways. Most of the games that are going to be released on PS4 will release on PS3 also so you could always get the PS3 version.

Target has halted all PS4 pre-orders online and stores, some local stores MAAAAAY have preorders available but it's looking a bit bleak now.

Should we be looking at this as a good thing .... maybe not for the OP but as a whole - the PS4 is going to be in the millions!

Yeah, I hope more pre orders come out soon. I dont plan on going to the launch day without a pre order receipt.

Try Walmart. They opened up pre-orders in store.

If you don't get to pre-order a PS4, don't panic. Just be persistant on launch day.

If you are willing to make some calls and drive out of town (if need be), you will have no problem finding a PS4 on day 1.

 

With the amount of Walmarts, Targets, Kmarts, Best Buys, Costcos, Sam's Clubs, Fry's Electronics, Sears, et cetera -- in the Bay Area, there shouldn't be too much of a hassle, if you act early and quickly.

If you cannot make a pre-order and really want a launch day system your best option would be to drive to every store near you and see if they have any on the shelves. You can also drive 20+ miles if you're really up for it. Another option is to pre-order the standard edition off Amazon and wait whatever amount of days/weeks/months to receive it. I don't suggest buying one off ebay as you'll basically get rip-offed. Best of luck to you! Smiley Happy

The standard edition is no longer available on Amazon. Do your research.
