Seeing how the PS4 will be sold out at launch, how long do you think until there will be a restock. Also is there anymore news on The 500$ Killzone ShadowFall bundle?

I would be surprised if there is a large restock before christmas. other than that, think there will be stores that get a handful here and there. Not sure about the killzone bundle

I'm guessing shortly after Thanksgiving if not in time for Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving here in the US).

Despite what many out of touch with the average consumer fans would lead you to believe the PS4 will probably be in decent supply in US retailers at least around mid to late December at the worst. It's still a $400 new console that requires a $50 subscription yearly and a $60 second controller along with a lineup of ports that people can already play on the consoles they already have. Its not like Killzone has ever been a system seller either so I doubt it causes it to sell out past November on its own either (in the US)

You should probably be able to walk into a store and get a PS4 in mid-December. I'm looking forward to picking mine up at launch day and then laughing at all the idiots trying to sell PS4 units at high prices thinking they will be sold out and then losing money on their investment.

When the PS3 was hard to find, they were available around early to mid January as I recall. However, I read that Sony has actually delayed their Japanese launch in order to get more units to the US since they know they have Japan in the bag, so it may be a better situation this time. Best option is probably to get on the wait list at Amazon or some other vendor.

That would be pretty sweet

If you're in the U.S, Wal-Mart is guaranteeing you get a console before December 25th.

That's good news, but if it were me, I'd rather sit back and wait for it to come in the mail... I am done with lining up and hoping for the best. I mean, great if they are in abundance, but I have my doubts.

I would say after mid-January you should be able to find them readily available.

I would say your best bet is to check out obscure places like Toys R Us or Sam's Club. They may or may not have it on launch day. I'm just waiting til next year, spring time to get one or right around the time Watch Dogs comes out. I've never stood in line for a console and I won't start now. Nothing states that you HAVE to have a PS4 on launch day.

I preordered one the first day possible from GStop and then another 3 weeks after that at GStop. I haven't heard of anywhere taking preorders since.

There are places that aren't accepting preorders that you can go to on launch day. Target, for example, will have a stock of PS4s available first-come first-serve at launch as well as a 'Buy 2 PS4 games and get 1 free' deal.

Several retailers will have stock of the PS4, but not until after the shopping holiday rush, which is usually around Black Friday here in the US. Hopefully, shortly after, there will be PS4's for everyone.

I'd think stores will have them in decent stock in a couple of weeks (same for the One after it launches). Neither system has a big system seller game so I don't see them being completely out of stock for an extended period of time. At least I hope not, I'm looking to get one around the end of November or beginning of December so I can have it ready for Christmas.

Go out shop around. I think they will be readily available in a timely manner. I picked mine up at Target this morning with no hassle. Ten people camped out. I actually showed up at 8am did my shopping and was surprised that an hour after opening there were still 10 left. I think Sony has done a good job keeping up with the demand during launch. Hopefully Microsoft will do the same.
