I have checked my Amazon PS4 console pre-order and it now says "The following item will arrive after 25 Dec 2013."

But I still haven't revived an email regarding a delivery date.

I placed the order on the 7th November. I have emailed Amazon Customer Service and I am waiting for a response.

How accurate is their information?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry bud, but 7th November is a bit late in the game to put in a pre order for day of release.

Most people have had theirs in since the console was announced and the stores started taking pre-orders.

Amazon will be getting more stock in (Sony are going to blitz the market with PS4's as soon as possible) before Xmas but whether you fall into that queue is a different matter.

You may be better of trying your luck with a supermarket / game shop at a midnight release (I work for game and we have a few consoles held back for the midnight release)

I know that the PS4 pre orders are a hot ticket item (despite the launch titles being a bit weak, but thats just my opinion)

Sorry, OP. 3 weeks before a major console launch is too late. Think 3 months next time.

I placed my order in May of this year. Pretty much as soon as the pre-orders went live. Think of the amount of pre-orders Amazon would have got in six months - No electronics company in the world could make six months of stock for a sole retailer and have some left over for orders at such late notice.

Best advice for you would be to hunt in person, on Friday.

You're better off using Amazon's CS on chat, they are pretty helpful and should be able to give you more info. Agree with the posters above, your best bet would be looking for stores who still have stock on release day.

If you ordered a bundle (Knack, KZ, or Gamer pack) on 14th Nov then at that time Amazon were stating that you would get it for Christmas.

This is when I pre-ordered, but my order is now in the same boat as gadget_uk, so I will be annoyed if it doesn't come in time for Christmas. I won't be overly surprised, but if they weren't going to be able to deliver for Chrismas they shouldn't have said so at the time, as I suspect that will be a major factor in people ordering from them.

(As of now you can still order the Knack bundle for delivery pre-Christmas)'

The OP is probably better off going to a midnight launch at a local Game/Tesco or something, many stores are getting "turn-up-on-the-day" stock, albeit limited.

I don't think the OP was too late to preorder in general but maybe from Amazon. Companies didn't know the final amount of consoles they were getting until quite recently (according to my local Game) so I think it would depend where it was ordered from. I have had mine on order from Zavvi and only preordered it on the 1/11/13 and I received an email yesterday saying money will be taken today and to expect the console on Friday. So maybe amazon will have some in time for Xmas at least.

I seem to remember PS2 Slims selling for ridiculous money on ebay the year they came out due to shortages. I don't see this Christmas being any different.

^^Unless Amazon UK follow Amazon DR and stop people buying more than 1 console. And Ebay US has stopped people selling more than 1 console a week or month can't remember which.

While this is partially correct, places like Amazon will be getting a bigger share but will also get more pre-orders so the stock will already be allocated to the next in line.

Leaving a pre-order to 3 weeks before release and expecting it to arrive on that day of release is not really realistic.

Best chance the OP has is pitching up at a midnight release nice and early otherwise wait until after Christmas to get one.

We have three consoles that are not allocated pre -order (I work for game) to sell at midnight and if not sold (unlikely I know) next morning in store.(but will probably be subject to mandatory bundle offering!)

If you have already pre-ordered your PS4 at any of our other stores then please check with that store for their local opening times so that you know when to collect your Console.
Might be useful for anyone looking to by one last minute!

I don't think the OP was too late to preorder in general but maybe from Amazon. Companies didn't know the final amount of consoles they were getting until quite recently (according to my local Game) so I think it would depend where it was ordered from. I have had mine on order from Zavvi and only preordered it on the 1/11/13 and I received an email yesterday saying money will be taken today and to expect the console on Friday. So maybe amazon will have some in time for Xmas at least.
Sony only guaranteed release day per-orders up to Aug 6th. Xmas is only 3 weeks extra so I'd say it is too late. I think you've been lucky to get one so late tbh.
