ps4 Day one Availability

44 replies 3286 views Edited Oct 15, 2013

OK, so i didn't pre order the ps4. There, I said it. I have finally given myself enough time to get my thoughts together and am ready to make the switch from xbox to playstation. The only problem is- when can I get my new system?!?! There's a lot of talk online about ps4 stock and if supply will meet demand. Here's the thing. I want to be able to go to target, walmart, or bestbuy the night before ps4 comes out and pick one up at a midnight release without a pre order. I don't want to order a non-day one edition and wait two weeks later to find out I could have picked one up in stores. So, CAN I GET A PS4 AT A MIDNIGHT RELEASE WITHOUT A PRE ORDER?!?!

I don't think you will be able to get a PS4 at launch. But there should be more coming into store within a few days after, so more thank likely a week after launch you will be able to get a PS4.

I didn't preorder and I feel confident I'll be able to find one on release day. Here's a little tip: try stores other than best buy, walmart, and gamestop. Store like k-mart, sears, radio shack, microcenter and many other retailers will have ps4's as well. Also, I live near a college, so I won't waste my time looking for one in that city. Check retail stores in lesser populated areas.
And the results are in, the winner of Sonys #20YearsOf Play poll is...
"Winner: SOCOM II: U.S. Navy Seals (24.74%)"​

It's a great day to be a SOCOM fan!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome job SOCOM fans, Worldwide!

I don't see how any answer we provide here will quell your fears, friend. Asking here is just as good as asking that homeless guy you see wandering around in the park. We have no way of knowing if you'll be able to go to your local store and pick up a system. If you were asking about a pre-order online, we just might be able to give you a definitive answer. However, you'll either find one at a brick and mortar location or you won't. As MaddenKing stated above, call your local store when the time comes, look around in the unusual locations for purchasing this item, and at the least wait until the next week.

For those who didn't pre order it and has hopes to finding one on launch day....I wish you all the luck in the world. However, try GameStop 2 days after launch. People who don't pick up their pre order in 48 hours of release, their privately held system becomes a publicly available one. So no their shouldn't be a single free console for midnight but there should be maybe one 2 days after launch.

That is done store to store. Ive talked to several gamestops bout this. Something as a PS4 or other hard ware device. Some store will hold it for a customer for up to a week before selling it off.

True but just so we take in all posibilities, the earliest you'd want to try for a PS4 is 2 or 3 days after its launch.
