I wouldn't worry about it, they don't have a release date yet.

I don't think they actually announced anything, other than saying it will be out in November. That's why they list the last day of November. I doubt they would sell the console on a Saturday.

It seems MS likes Tuesdays. My guess is it will come out on either the 12th or 19th. God help us if it comes out anywhere near Black Friday. What an absolute nightmare that would be. If so, I am heading to the store with my bazooka locked and loaded! biggrin.gif

I have mine doing the free 2 day shipping with amazon, so I won't even have to worry about it. Just wait a day or two, and then I'll be jumping in to the next generation.

Yeah, I did the same thing, Amazon prime. I was just goofing around.

I am hoping amazon ships and we receive day one. Pretty sure this is what will happen. They will get the units before launch and they ship them for launch day. The "day one" unit I hope means day one!

The local GameSpot near my house only had 8 preorders for that location. I actually pre-ordered mine at a GameStop near a friends house, but I don't know how many total they had available. Still, it seems like GameStop was pretty cautionary about not offering too many pre-orders, but these other online places are just continuously offering them. You'd think all this would have dried up by now.

My local GS had 18 Ones preordered and 94 PS4s preordered as of yesterday. Manager said they're only getting 20 total Xbox consoles. (So far, anyway.)

These are probably Amazon specific bundles not official Sony bundles. If you look at what's in the box, it does not mention the game for that particular bundle. They are probably putting the PS4, Battlefield 4 and the PSN card all together in one Amazon shipment/box.

anyone thinking of bypassing Amazon for preorders and doing a preorder at a place like Best Buy?

I was thinking it out. They're charging tax in California. If I'm going to have to pay tax on something (especially for something expensive), I might as well get it locally. But that's assuming that Amazon doesn't sweeten the preorder later on (is there any chance of that?). So I was thinking of canceling the preorder and doing it at Best Buy. A preorder doesn't put a hold for that amount on the card right?

I did all my pre-orders from Best Buy. I did the Day One console pre-order and I also pre-ordered six games for the XBOne. Although only five of those are launch games.

Part of the reason I did BestBuy was for the 18 months interest free financing. All my purchases from BestBuy are with the 18 to 36 month interest free financing. I'll just add on a gift card to up the total to the minimum amount needed. Then I pay it off within a couple of weeks of the interest free financing ending. And I'll also earn reward Zone dollars for all my BestBuy purchases that I can use later along with the gift cards.

I preordered a PS4 at my local GameStop this past Friday and was shocked to learn that I'd be getting it on release day. Tysons Corner store must be getting a ton of them. I had to ask twice to confirm that it would be launch day pickup. Not that I need it on launch day. I just expected them to tell me I should have one by the end of the year, maybe, if I was lucky. We'll see if they actually get enough to cover all of the preorders.

Since they said November, I'm sure they are going to make sure they are available by Black Friday, then again sounds like they might sell out on pre-orders alone anyhow so Black Friday would be pointless target anyhow.

I preordered from Microsoftstore and went through Mr Rebates. Will get $25 back, at least that will help chew the tax down.

Consider the unparalleled advantage, of a natural disaster that's impossible to manage.
