Will Retail Stores Announce Stock??

12 replies 314 views Edited Nov 9, 2013
Like many, I did not pre-order a PS4. However, I was wondering if it's typical of retail stores to tell customers how many PS4's they have in stock on the night of the release.

To clarify: Say I get to my local Best Buy around 4pm and there is a line. Will Best Buy be able to tell me right then and there if waiting for 8 hours is worth it? I don't want to be waiting in line for nothing when I could be waiting somewhere else.

I don't think they can disclose the exact number of units they have available. But you can say something like "Hey I don't have the Playstation 4 pre-ordered, I was wondering if you guys were shipped more than enough units to sell to those who didn't pre-order." And if they don't know, then ask to speak to a manager and explain your situation.

They said they MIGHT have some in stock.. Your best guess is to go there really early.. I think they said first come first serve really..

most likely not. because theyll prolly already be people acting crazy knowing theyll be extras. if they know how many then itll be worse. i remember the ps3, people would wait outside a little ways and rob others just to get one. so this is also a warning. please everyone be careful of your surroundings. its sad to say it but there are people like that. but just try to get there early and have one =]

Call Best Buy they said they will have two lines at midnight sales one for pre orders and one for new buyers. They said they will have extra stock over the pre-order amount.

 

 

Edit: This is not the story I read but says about the same thing. http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/11/05/ps4-release-date-stock-details-plus-pre-orders-christmas/
