A lot of users seem to be claiming that they pre-ordered a console and then cancelled it when bad news about the console's release was revealed. For example, there are Lems here who have claimed that they cancelled their pre-orders for the PS4 when it was revealed that the release date of Drive Club had been pushed back. However, considering the fact that they are Lems, it is highly questionable whether they actually pre-ordered one or not.
Anyhow, because of this, I think it's a good idea that we who claim to have purchased a next-gen console prove so. Here's my proof.
