I think this launch is the biggest flop from any electronic manufacturer. The way I understand a "Release Date" is the day the public can purchase a product. With the PS4 this is not the case at all. How could Sony drop the ball on their biggest console release in 7 years and at the holidays? This should be called a "Shipment Date" for those who pre-ordered a console. If you didn't pre-order one your S.O.L. because no retailer nor does Sony know when they are shipping more, as stores only had maybe 12 extra consoles for walk in sales. If the product has been released you should be able to at least pay and reserve a console for when a store gets their next shipment but you can't even do that. You can't even order one online and wait for it to be shipped when the next batch is shipped. How can this console be called "Released" if you can even buy it? This would NEVER happen with a Apple product. If they sold out in stores or what not you could still order online and they would never kill the ability to order online. You might have to wait a couple of weeks but you aware of that when you order it. The point of a pre-order is so a company can get an idea of how many units they need to produce and an idea of the demand, not to mention, that's money coming in for something that isn't even released yet. Seems to me Sony doesn't care about its customers who are forking over $400+ with their unstable and glitchy console. To say they had limited time with the hardware for the OS. I don't buy that. Sony, you've had 7 years! 7 whole years to perfect this console and work out the glitches and bugs and release a superior console. How many new products have Apple released within 7 years and some completely redesigned? Sony isn't the company they use to be and it has shown over the past few years. They are not on their game anymore and seems they are just throwing crap together and throwing it at a wall and hoping it sticks to dig them out of bankruptcy at the cost of the consumers. I will most likely not be buying this console due to it's unavailability and poor planning and bad reviews. Instead I will be holding my cash for when Apple announces their new console in June.
