Exactly my thoughts^

If around Christmas time I walk in and they're lying around, I'll probably grab one. I was all set on buying a launch console, but decided to give it up since the games avail don't really appeal to me as of yet. I still have gta5, nhl14 and gt5 (hopefully) to hold me over until a ps4 title catches my eye. No sense in grabbing a console unnecessarily... No rush!

I checked at the local BestBuy this morning and they told me they didn't have any in stock. I was hoping to pick one up. I might just have to wait for Amazon. I traded in some old disc players recently at Amazon which should give me enough Amazon credit to get a PS4 from them.

I called my local Best Buy and the first message you hear is about the PS4. "Check BestBuy.com, we'll have new shipments coming in through christmas, you can sign up for notification when new shipments come in. If you have any other questions...".

Guess they must be getting a lot of calls smile.gif.

Mine as well, but with an asking price of $600-800 for the console alone. I've had luck finding them online, but just don't want to risk shipping damage.

Production has been pretty good it seems. Perhaps no shortages until Christmas.

A friend of mine has a PS4 for sale, and he's trying to get $550 for it locally via Craiglist and he didn't get a single phone call today about it.


I said way back when Sony was talking about how they had over 1 million preorders, and these record pre order numbers that at least 40 percent of those pre-orders are from Ebay and Craigslist speculators. Another buddy of mine was at a Best Buy midnight launch. He was in a line with about 90 people, and he said the vast majority of the people in line were discussing what they were going to buy from their Ebay windfall, once they sold their systems, lol. I'm telling you, it's a bit like the Wii U, although the difference is, there is a legit demand for the PS4, so there is a huge amount of people that actually want to keep these things, but there are just as many people hoping to flip 10 of these systems to pay for a new ipad or something.
