If I preorder from BestBuy.com soon, I won't face any "backorders" will I?

If I preorder and pay 100% within a few days, do you think BestBuy.com will make sure that I get one on launch? Of course a few days after it is released because of shipping and all that. But should there be any concern of getting an email around launch time saying they couldn't fulfill my order?

I would hope its on a first come first served basis.

Best Buy is one of the worst places to preorder. Why would you do that?

They can't guarantee anything.

Online orders will be done in order starting with the earliest orders.

I don't like GameStop or Amazon at all.

So that really narrows it down to Best Buy, or places like Walmart, Target, etc.

Yeah, best buy has been notorious for losing pre-orders or cancelling them without the customer's consent.

Hmm, so in-store pick up would 100% guarantee that I will have one at launch?

You can try it. If you can do in store pick up your console will be in a separate pile with your name on it. Then you wouldn't need to worry about the pre-order line.

Same here.

I've preordered months in advance without problems, and I preordered a day in advance and never had a problem. I'm just worried about this because its on a bigger scale, plus its $500 as opposed to $60.
