So if I want to order some games from Amazon to come with my consoles on launch day, do I really have to pay for 2nd Day shipping to get them on launch day?

Right now when I'm looking at the games on Amazon, it says for me to select 2nd day in order to get them on launch day.

On a side note, I'm kinda considering staying up late on the 24th to try to score a Target PS4 to resell.

I know I'm evil for thinking this, but is anyone else considering it too?

I haven't cancelled my Amazon PS4 Pre-Order.  With the popularity of the system I might have been wrong on my impression about no money to be made

The US preorder numbers are starting to come out, and things are not nearly as dire for MS as the Sony fanboys would have you believe. The PS4 is expected to sell just over a million units with the Xbox selling just under a million. The Xbox has been gaining ground as launch approaches. Nobody's expecting MS to win the launch, but rumors of its "failure" have been grossly exaggerated. Given that the Xbone costs $100 more, I think the fact the race is so close is pretty impressive.

And frankly if that's true it is a bit of a failure for MS.  They dominated last cycle in the US, they should easily have led this launch in the US.  The US numbers didn't appear to be super dire either as we didn't see the Free game bundles over here like they got in Europe, those numbers must be interesting to see.

His beef is that he's not getting an Xbone.   Because of that, he's engaging in the time honored tradition of trashing the console he's not getting so as to help bolster the one that he's investing a lot of money into.

It's old skool.

Asking for a source hardly qualifies as a beef, there's a lot of FUD out there right now.  I also personally don't put any stock in VGchartz, but man if those numbers are right PS4 has the killer exclusive this launch with Killzone looking to sell as much as Forza, Dead Rising and Ryse combined!*

*I don't believe for a second that those numbers are right or that that is going to happen.

What the fuck? I was asking for a source because I'm curious and because there have been very few real numbers released for preorders so far, making it interesting reading no matter the conclusion. That you people assume that it was some sort of underhanded attack on MS says more about your own degree of blind fanboyism than anything else.

As for the source itself, it seems reasonable enough, if a little low for both consoles. Is VGChartz reliable when it comes to this kind of data? Where do they get their numbers from? Are these educated guesses or numbers from the retail chains themselves?

The only preorder data I've seen so far has been a quote from a Sony representative who claimed that PS4 preorders were well above 1 million. This was a few weeks ago. I don't know if he was referring to the US alone, or to worldwide preorders.

It's not unreasonable to expect something like that to happen, but not necessarily because of the quality of any of those games. First person shooters tend to sell a lot better than other genres. Ryse is probably the closest you'll get to a non-"niche" title out of the three others, at least as far as AAA titles go.

And the Killzone numbers reflect the fact that

1.  PS4 doesn't have many exclusives at the time of launch
2.  A few of their big titles were delayed

So if you want to play a game on your PS4 at launch, you must swallow the Killzone pill.

But those numbers also probably reflect the latest developments.    That means people that have preordered since that time and gone with Killzone because they heard watchdogs was delayed..... and also people that shifted their preorders to Killzone from watchdogs.

Maybe we could create a Bickering subforum or subthread and have the mods move those posts there.  Could be a lot of fun to read them all jumbled together out of context. smile

One site in particular, VG Chartz, tends to come up a lot. VG Chartz numbers are considered unreliable, and because sales discussions often degrade into console war-style arguments between posters, it's really important to us that accurate sales numbers are posted for discussion. Users are generally banned for posting VG Chartz numbers because of the way it derails threads and prevents good discussion.

So back on topic smile.  I had the PS4 preordered but canceled it and now and holding out for a Xbox one... Main reason?  Kids love kinect and wife is super interested in the workout stuff.   With 3 kids, I'm not nearly as hardcore of a gamer so lots of time is spent either playing ridiculous Wipeout type games with them or sneaking in time for the occasional rpg, shooter or sports game prior to me passing out from exhaustion after a normal day..lol

I'm looking to maybe pickup a PS4 down be road when Naughty Dog exclusives come out but I suspect I have a bit of time.   I'll be watching closely here though for reviews.   Since everything is sold out, maybe I get swayed yet again!

So, lets say I'm a jackass. Lets take this further and say I've been too busy, and somewhat lazy, somehow... And I'd didn't preorder a ps4. Does anyone know of any places still taking preorders? I don't wanna OCD and combust and just get a xbone to satisfy my compulsive needs. Anyone, anywho?!

I hear Target will have a bunch up for pre-order on 10-25.

Sweet for me! Not so much for the others.

Btw, is this online or instore?

who knows?  Target isn't telling anyone anything yet, but be sure, if you wait online, it will be in store pre-orders only.  wait outside the store?  they'll be online only.  wake up at 12am on the 25th?  ha, they used EST.  oh, you live on the east coast, well, they used NZ time.  oh, you live in NZ? don't worry, we have you covered too.  It's in local dollars, but based on a more expensive exchange rate.  you live in another country and want to order when NZ opens?  nice try buddy, we limit orders in the time zone on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

*don't forget to take advantage of Target's Special Offer (which isn't specified until the last order screen):  
The pre-order is part of a limited edition bundle with 3 non-official accessories you wouldn't buy yourself even if they weren't 50% more and a game to be cancelled later (which resets the pre-order voucher, naturally).  

oh, and we also promise to have unscheduled server issues resulting in the potential loss of any shopping cart items, email and payment data and confirmation notices for at least 7-10 days.  

So I take it you are suggesting I look elsewhere? icon_wink I'm gonna be 2 wks into zero cigarettes by then if all goes as planned and I just wanted a pick me up. Well, and I just really want a ps4 soon!

in case you want to go with Amazon, they have the launch day PS4/BF4/PS+ bundle available now.  plus you save $10

One site in particular, VG Chartz, tends to come up a lot. VG Chartz numbers are considered unreliable, and because sales discussions often degrade into console war-style arguments between posters, it's really important to us that accurate sales numbers are posted for discussion. Users are generally banned for posting VG Chartz numbers because of the way it derails threads and prevents good discussion.

VGchartz numbers are usually a bunch of junk but NeoGaf posters hardly need any help to derail threads.

This.

VGchartz numbers have been discredited for years. They have never been taken seriously.

Anyway, PS4 and XB1 will both do well this holiday....though being $100 more expensive is going to hold back the XB1...no getting around that. The really interesting thing will be to see how they sell next Spring. Titanfall for the XB1 and Infamous for the PS4. I think the simple fact that Titanfall will be out at the same time for the PC and 360 will hurt the XB1. Infamous is a true exclusive and you have to buy a PS4 to play it. Advantage PS4.

inFamous 2 is one of the very few games I've ever finished, then immediately started up a new game and played the whole thing through a second time.  I'm really looking forward to Second Son. nod

I disagree. There are a LOT of console gamers who don't have a gaming PC. So they're going to have to buy an XB1 to play Titanfall. And when it comes to which game is more highly anticipated, Titanfall wins hands down.
