Pre-orders placed now don't guarantee delivery before xmas. What's the chance of getting one over the counter? any other ideas?

I imagine Tesco will do what they did with the Xbox One launch - they opened most of their Extra stores at midnight and offered the Xbox One on a first come, first served basis.

It's good that we have such nice members that will happily rip each other off as long as they make a tidy profit:thumbup1:

Your probably right Trev but I don't get to play on my console anywhere near as much as I'd like to with work, family and being too tired so I want to make the most of the time I get off over xmas by playing as much COD Ghosts on the PS4 as poss.

It's called business.

If he went through the trouble of getting one ahead of time he has the ability to honorably charge whatever he likes.

I have tubs of Driven Sports Craze that I now sell for $200 each when they cost me $26 a piece.

I make a lot of people very happy ;-)

I can agree with what you're saying, well, everything except the "honourable" part.

There is nothing honourable about buying something with the sole intention of taking advantage of the people who actually want a console but can't because of people doing this.

But it's just a games console. It's not like people 'need' to have it now. If they want to pay stupid money to get it early then that's up to them.

Agreed. I managed to get a PS3 without issue when it was first released but they cost a fortune. I paid nearly £500 for the console and Resistance. The Wii was the worst one. I new a lad in WH Smiths that gave me a tip off about when they were getting them so my daughter got lucky that Christmas because they were like rocking horse sh1t.

I've looked on the sites of all the retailers I can think of to try and get one but there all basically saying that if you pre order now you more than likely wont get one till after xmas. I don't think there allowed to sell them all on a pre-order basis though ( I could be wrong ) so I'm gonna try midnight on launch night and try my luck. Dunno where will be best place to go though. If I don't have any luck I'll order one and wait.

I'm not so sure. I think the games will come down in price in 6 months to a years time but £350 for a launch console is very good and I think they will stay that price until after next xmas. The choice of games is pretty limited but a good few of my PSN buddies are gettin one with COD Ghosts so that and Fifa 14 will do me for a bit.
