Where to preorder the Ps4.

17 replies 199 views Edited Jul 15, 2013
I need some help preording my Ps4.I'm trying to get it shipped to me because I live in the country. I was thinking Best Buy because(I'm hoping) that they will be one of the places to run out last. As of this time which place will probably get my Ps4 to me the fastest and before 2014. Also what do I have to pay upfrond on said place?

Best Buy requires $25 instore and full price online. Sony store also requires a full price preorder.

At this point it probably doesn't matter where you buy it from; you're extremely unlikely to get a PS4 before 2014 ordering now. All launch units on Amazon have been sold out for a while now, Gamestop is out of launch units, and I think Best Buy is out as well. When the next batch gets in is unknown; it could be before 2014, but chances are ordering now won't get you a PS4 til January, maybe even February.


Pretty much, order online now and hope you get it sooner than later.

How about Wal Mart? They seem very unlikely to be a first resort place to get a Ps4. 2014 for them also?

Bestbuy is actually one of the cheapest which is only 25 bucks down. You pay it off either right up front or wait till pick up day. You cannot pay inbetween. The problem with bestbuy is your not 100% garunteed to get it at launch. They go by order of preorders. So if your number 20 and they only get 10 youll have to wait until next shipment and even then the next time they may only get 5 so youd be in the one after that, maybe. When talked with ny friend who manages bestbuy he said do not preorder from there if you want it launch day.

Then theres amazon which costs nothing. You do need credit card info. Theres also one thing about them that many do not know. Just because they dont charge your card the day you preorder doesnt mean they dont check for funds later down the line. If the funds are not there when they check you risk losing the preorder. If you read the smal writing it will tell you this. Sometimes they never check until they ship it but they have the right to and can do it anytime they want.

Gamestop is the best bet. They buy there systems before they even start taking preorders so your gonna get one no matter what on launch day. Right now they have stopped taking them but they may open up later. They are 100 down and you can pay it off or make payments whenever youd like.

Unfortunatly i think at this point if you have bot preordered you may not be getting one until 2014 or late 2013. It sucks yes but they gave us plent my of warning and time to preorder. If anyone wanted one at launch they should of got it ASAP! You dont mess around with next gen preordering, every gamer knows that.

Not sure if they take the money at the time of preorder or the transaction stays pending until release date. I went in to Best Buy and preordered in person.

It seems maybe target or walmart would be your best bet now. Thats coming from what i see here and around other forums. Be quick though.
