post #8581 of 15429


I'm actually not getting a PS4 yet but I did decide to stop by a random Best Buy to take a quick video and see how the line is. It was around 7:16PM. Doesn't seam like much people but who knows, that may change by 10pm.

Just got back from GameStop to get a confirmed spot in line for tonight. Got number 5 in line and my friends are number 3 and 4. Don't have to go back until bout 11:45 now. Nice not have to wait there outside the way they've done it.

I love it...first world problems for sure. tongue.gif

I wonder how many are like me and after the last gen release fiascos are just going with Amazon.

I know the article that went with the amazon vid a few pages back said that combined, these console release are their biggest two day shipments ever. Combined, launch console sales are going to account for more sales then they did in all of videogames dept for Black Friday 2012.

So, life is full of surprises, I was very reluctant to buy a PS4 from the very beginning, dang, my plan was to get one in a year from now!!, specially because of 2 things, have to pay for PS+ for online gaming, and, since I´m from México the cost of a PS4 here is going to be almost 200 dollars more expensive than in the US, but my sister is going to the F1 US-grand prix and offered to get me a PS4, so, maybe I´ll be one of the first ones in México to get one tongue.gif , I only hope there won´t be a problem with my PSN account since that PS4 is not bought "legally" in the Mexican market eek.gif

You've got to upgrade that internet my friend.

Also, funny I know, but I'm a BoSox fan too, all the way down here in Alabama. Grew up loving the Sox cause ain't nothing that a Southerner hates more than Dang Yankees! smile.gif

"From Boston" typically means within 75 miles. I've heard people from Providence claim it!

Unfortunately, contrary to Marky Marks older brother, Boston doesn't get Fios. Only some of the wealthy burbs around the city have had it put in, and Verizon has been dreadfully slow installing it where they are expanding. So it's Comcast for me.

PS4 and PS4 games are not region locked. You can sign up for as many regions as you want, but I believe you just can't change it once it's picked (gets tied to your ID). Your account absolutely will work on a US PS4.

Ahh, yea, he is in the burbs North. He's beyond Alewife Station near Lexington or something. That's too bad. That's as fast as Comcast gets? Not good at all. Maybe I should stop complaining. Down here, we've got Uverse, which is probably the worst internet known to man. I had it for one long horrible year.

If my wife and I move, it'll either be the D.C. area or Boston within the next year or so. Already been to the Bama bar in Boston too! Love the area. My buddy in Prov is moving to an apt in Back Bay area of Boston next month.

Ok so I went on a little stroll tonight and I hit three places.

First stop was Target. Went to see if I can still get my hands on a few games to take advantage of the B2G1 deal. They only had PS4 Ghosts in stock. The sales associate was like just buy any three games and then exchange them when we have the ones you want in stock. That Target is too far out of my way and I don't feel like waiting a week to get my hands on KZ or NBA2K14 so I just left empty handed.

I then hit Gamestop at about 7:30pm and picked up NBA2K14 for $25 and change with a credit I had from trading in some games. This was the scene at GS about an hour ago..

About 7 in line, all without preorders. The guy that sold me 2K told me they had stock for the 250 preorders they had to fill and had none for walk ins so those folks in line outside were waiting for nothing.

Then I headed to the same BBY I went earlier today when I posted the pic of 7 or 8 in line and this was what I saw..

Probably close to 80 or 90 people in line without preorders. Line was starting to wrap around the store. This is at about 8pm. Picked up KZ there and a trigger grip for the Vita. Guy in the video game department said they had about 200 extra consoles so those guys in line have a good shot of getting one. They are gonna let the preorder people like me start going in to take care of the purchasing part at around 10pm so we can be out ASAP right after midnight. The walk ins will be allowed in after midnight once all the preorder people are handed their consoles.

Anyone catch last night's Southpark? Somewhat funny stuff re: PS4 vs. Xbox One in it.

Were the Gamestops saying this ahead of time, or did they just say this info recently? The two Gamestops I frequent told me that they would not be getting any extra in. But this was several weeks. ago. I guess it doesn't matter now anyway since I spent most of the store credit I have. I only have $150 left so if I'm able to get a PS4 this weekend it will need to be from BestBuy since I still have around $350 in giftcards and reward Zone dollars there.

Man, I bet that FIOS plan you have is worth every penny!

I so wish we had FIOS available here in Miami.

just curious, but reserves for ps4 were open for months, wonder why all the people waiting in line didn't reserve one.

What are the chances of casually strolling into Best Buy, Gamestop, etc. in the next month or so and being able to pick up a system?

I'm hoping it will be very good. I'm certainly not going to stand in line. If I were 25 or 30 years younger I would, but not now. I would probably end up with pneumonia.

Give BBY a shot tonight if you can, Worm. If there's less than 70 people in line, you may have a shot to score one. From what my local BBY said and from I've been reading, 200 is the golden number.

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot. You're in the DC area where it's like 40 degrees now. I apologize.

eek.gif This isn't Florida. It's 34F out there right now and going down to 30F. Unfortunately I can't be standing out in the cold like I could when I was younger. I'm going to check out Gamestop and BestBuy on Saturday morning and hope for the Best. Or possibly teh PS4 will show up online at BestBuy tomorrow for in store pickup. But I'm guessing that might be wishful thinking.

The last time I was at BestBuy picking up an order, there was an family in front of me talking about coming to the BestBuy to wait in line to pick up their PS4. I did think that was pretty cool that the entire family was really excited about getting the PS4 to the point that they would all be waiting in line to get it.

Exactly, I don't understand it at all.

Can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts on next gen. Waiting on PS4 until spring but XO comes next week!

I had two PS4 pre-orders and three XBOne-preorders from back in June. Unfortunately, like a Dumbass, I cancelled them all except one XBOne pre-order. Of course if I had it over again I would have kept the pre-orders and put the extra ones on ebay to help cover the cost of mine. I don't know what I was thinking when I cancelled them.redface.gif

Has anyone tried connecting the PS3 Bluetooth headset to the PS4? If BT works, just don't see why that headset won't. It can even be used with a phone.

Someone correct me if BT isn't enabled. I hate to use wires.
