Hi.
I haven't ordered one yet, but I'm going to get my lad one for Xmas.
What are my chances of getting one considering I haven't preordered?

Thoughts?

Slim, but most stores are getting some in stock to sell on launch day and not as pre orders

So your best bet now its find a local game/graniger games/HMV that is doing a midnight launch and make sure you are first in line

I was thinking about ordering one online.
There are a lot of places available to preorder from, I'm not bothered about getting one on launch day, I just want one in time for Xmas.

They seem to be shipping them as soon as they roll off the factory line in china so stores should get limited stock every week. If you can find someone still taking preorders then you might not get a launch console but you will be in line for later shipments. I think it will be quite a while before you can walk in store and pull one off the shelf.

I'm getting a PS3 for christmas, it'll be cheap as chips after the PS4 is released. Never owned one before.

I'd say there is a huge chance that you'll get your order by Christmas if you order now. Sony themselves have already said in mid-August that preorders made after the deadline, there is still a chance they'll be delivered for launch day (although they had a deadline to avoid disappointing). Obviously if you preorder now, you won't get it for launch, but you should get it wayy before Christmas.

I have ordered one from shopto.net over the weekend.I don't expect it on launch date but hopefully not too long after. A lot of online shops seem to have stop taking pre orders completely.

I ordered two with shopto but now they've decided they are cancelling one of them so you might get mine

Wait until after Christmas and go on ebay - you always get a load of unwanted presents on there.

Why buy 2nd for such a recently released product? It won't be much cheaper than in the shops and there's no warranty either.

You'll get one. I'd be VERY VERY surprised if you can't find one anywhere in the UK for nearly 3 weeks.

Plus, I really can't see many people "not wanting" a 350 present. The only people putting it on eBay are going to be the people attempting to charge extortionate prices.

I'd be surprised as well actually, it might be sold out for a week or two but I'd be shocked if you couldn't just walk into GAME/HMV/Toys R Us before Christmas and pick a PS4 or Xbox One up off the shelf. Sony and MS will want parents who didn't pre-order back in August to be able to buy the consoles for their kids for Christmas.

Got two question if I was to order a PS4 today, would it be most likely that I will have to wait for the New Year before I would get one ? Also when the PS4 is released will I need PS Plus to game online with my PS3 ?

True but how many people are going to thinking that so they'll leave it to a week before christmas and then its sold out again because everyone had the same plan

I'm not saying we'll have another Wii on our hands where it was pretty much impossible to get one, but it's at least a possibility

You will get one, it's just unlikely to arrive on November 29th.

No, PS+ is required for online play on the PS4. The PS3 and Vita will still be free to play online.

Simply Games still allow preorders, guaranteed for launch day. This site is good for keeping track of things http://www.stockinformer.co.uk/check...s4%20pre-order
