Default Launch day PS4 - without a preorder

I haven't seen much discussion about this anywhere, so I thought I'd start a thread. Anyone else out there hoping to grab a day 1 ps4, but didn't get a pre-order? I've been asking a couple retail stores about day 1 inventory, and they said they would have more on the truck than the preorders. so there is a chance to pick one up in store at midnight.

Best chance to get one day 1 is to pre-order.

I had to cancel my ps4 amazon pre-order a couple months ago, so now I'm in the same boat (trying to get a ps4 on launch day without a pre-order). I have a feeling I'm going to be unsuccessful. I'm sure I'll be able to pick one up at least within a couple weeks of launch though.

Well my plan is to find a store like kmart that will likely not have a line. From what I'm hearing some stores will have a decent amount of non-preorder ps4s available. Its just a matter of finding the store that doesn't have 200 people standing outside. I think I'm more likely to get one on day 1 by standing in line a few hrs than to find a preorder (many preorders won't be shipped til after christmas from what I've read)

I remember hearing people stood in line for 2 days at best buy for the ps3 launch and didn't get one though.

I wasn't originally planning on getting it at launch since I didn't think I would have the money, but I've since sold some older PS1 & PS2 games on ebay & now have the entire amount to pay for it. I'm hoping some more pre-orders will pop up on amazon, if not will try to get one on release day.

I think Max had the theory that Sony would open up more quantities for pre-orders on Amazon and other retailers a bit closer to launch (like mid October perhaps?), so it's not out of the realm of possibilites

It just happened in Europe too, so hopefully more PS4s are allocated to the US soon as well... PS4 SKU pre-orders have been unavailable in the US for more than 2 months now I think.

why did you have to cancel the preorder? You pretty much screwed yourself over if you want one at launch now

I guess if you luck out. It will vary by store I assume. I give it a .1% chance of walking into any "major" retailer and coming away with a unit without a preorder.

I think everyone isn't giving Sony enough credit here. They've done this console launch thing many times now, and they know there needs to be stock available on store shelves that people can visibly see being purchased to generate that positive word of mouth.

It would shock me if there wasn't a sizable quantity of non-pre-ordered stock available, particularly since Sony has been giving off very confident vibes about having good supply ever since the reveal in February.

Of course, they apparently do have somewhere in the vicinity of 2M units pre-ordered worldwide, so just how much more stock they'll have left for walk-in customers at launch is an open question.

You will have to look around cause most people have pre ordered the ps4 in advance.

while buying the little mermaid digibook this week (at target of course) i asked the clerk in electronics about pre-orders for both consoles, if available ..his only answer was " every store in this region (socal-la, valley area) took ten pre-orders " i think he was full of shit..

My local TRU told me today that they would probably have 20 PS4s extra on day 1. So there is hope that most stores will have some at midnight for people that didn't preorder.

For the PS3 there were people waiting in line at least two days before they went on sale. I remember going to Target and thinking WTF are these people doing standing outside. When I walked by they said they were wainting in line for the PS3 to go on sale. Two days before!

Ya, now I wish I would have just waited instead of cancelling when I did. At the time, we had so much stuff coming up and I had to use the ps4 money I had saved up on other things, so I hadn't planned on getting one till next year's tax return because I didn't think there was any way I would have the extra money to get one on release day. Well now I'm kicking myself because we caught up financially a lot faster than I thought we would. I don't mind waiting though, if a 2nd wave of pre-orders comes up at amazon I'll probably just do that. Or I may just wait until best buy has stock in so I can use my reward zone.

The Walmart ad for Ps3 said 10 minimum per store.

The Walmart I camped at got 4.

I had to go back the following Wed with a raincheck because I was 7th in line.

(Still enjoy Ps3,.. not planning on getting Ps4.)
