That is the question.

I'm #10 at my local Gamestop for the X1 and just got a call about being there by 6pm on Thursday to pay everything off and I have a Wii U that I want to trade towards it.

The other option is to wait for Amazon to ship it on Thursday night and pay the full price.

I don't really want to go ahead and cancel my Amazon preorder because anything can happen at Gamestop.


Hmmmm

I had no issue with getting the PS4 on Amazon. I even applied gift cards to it later which some people inferred could cause issues and it didn't.

Amazon... I haven't liked dealing with Gamestop when it comes to consoles.

So you got your PS4 on time huh, When did Amazon charge you? I had a PS4 preorder and I stuck with me Sony Store order instead.

They shipped a day before it arrived. I live in NY. They didn't charge me on my credit card because by then I had payed off in full via gift cards, I'll probably have the X box One half payed off with gift cards. I have some cash back on my credit card so I usually buy gift cards with it and then apply the gift cards to my pre-orders.

You should be okay. For a pre-order on Friday, the absolute earliest they will start to prepare for shipment is on Wed. from my experience. I'm in the Bronx so it should be a similiar experience. For the PS4, they didn't even start the process until Thursday.
