I guess I missed my chance on pre-ordering a PS4?

I looked at every single online retailer I can think of including some obscure sites that were selling PS4's and every single one were sold out of pre-orders.


I guess I missed my chance and have to wait a while like after launch to get a Playstation 4?


This is reminding me on my Situation with my Nintendo Wii where it took about a year 1/2 after it came out for me to get one but I was trying to pre-order one just like the PS4. Turns out that there was a LARGE shortage where I live of Wii's and it was impossible to get one for a long while.


To me the PS4 situation is sounding like a repeat of my Wii situation.


But do you think I missed out on it and will have to wait now?

I don't know... Lots of people at my job are suddenly asking me where they can get a pre order. Most of them want it for a kids Christ gift.

I won't say it'll be impossible, but rather difficult to find one till maybe late January.

You missed a chance earlier today! Amazon had a BF4 bundle up for a little while...sold out quick.

I heard of that bundle and I saw it on Amazon but as soon as I got the money it got sold out.



Either there were few pre-order units or people are just quicker than I am.


I did notice Target is still accepting pre-orders for the Call of Duty: Ghosts Bundle. Not exactly interested in the game but it may be my best shot right now for a while since I am interested in the system.

No offense, but 3 weeks before launch and NOW trying to pre-order? Is this your first rodeo? The only way this could be excused is if, literally, this is the first console launch you've tried to be a part of. I'm not trying to be mean but....

Amazon doesn't charge your card until it ships, you still had 3 weeks to aquire the money for it. LOL

Actually due to problems with my money it did not come in until recently.


Though I guess it's just karma. Bank messes up with my money and I end up missing out on a PS4. I think I should of mentioned that earlier.


And if you read I had a similar situation with the Wii. That one was because I was too late. I'll admit that.

It's your fault for not acting sooner.


It's also your fault for the bank to mess up.



Because of that you should give up until a year or two after it launches. That's a safe way of knowing you can get a Playstation 4.


Until then I will post my experiences with my PS4 when it comes out with my copy of the Prestige edition of Call Of Duty: Ghosts as a way to show what you are missing out on.
