Beyond sad. If the PS4 actually had good launch exclusives then I can understand wanting to buy one badly but this? I mean if you care that much then just pre-order online

Sad to watch but still..... #SDC and RIP XBone 720p. The people's choice is the PS4.

When I got mine, they had no free sale stock left, only pre-orders. The girl serving me said she had put £14K through the till today by herself!

#26 Edited by 2mrw (4986 posts) -

I know this seems so stupid but I wish I could have been there ..... getting your console by preordering is boring !

The one in Peterborough (UK) had plenty in while i was queuing saw 3 XO and 2 PS4 being sold, funny watching a bloke buying a PS4 for his kids and his reactions to how much the whole thing was going to cost with 4 games, an extra control, extended warranty and PSN. Don't think he did his research

Oh please Americans lecturing European shoppers...that's just pathetic

Black Friday: Walmart becomes Brawlmart

#29 Posted by finalstar2007 (25185 posts) -

More videos which are pretty insane.. according to Gamestop Australia the PS4 has already broken major records

someone posted a bunch of videos on the comment section: http://n4g.com/news/1403860/ps4-looks-set-to-break-records-at-launch

Reminds me of the X360 launch when MS pulled out all the stops. Funny how times change.

Americans kill eachother on this very day at walmart via stampede.. I doubt they should say anything about retail barbarism

Oh and I'm American.

We have then but i just don't go any more,fights,long lines,many times you don't find things your looking for.

For example a woman was punch in her face by a guy who wanted to take the LCD TV the woman had inside walmart,those TV were priced at $99 dollars,$99 dollars for a new 32 inch LCD,apparently that was reason enough to strike a woman..sad in deed.

No it is really not

Plus all that fuss to get a launch console that will probably have a million problems

LMFAO I went into my local Best Buy this morning and asked if they had any PS4s. They said "No, but we have XBOX Ones." Both me and the employee laughed. TLHBFO
