How Can I Get a PS4 from the Sony Store?

[ Edited ]
17 replies 256 views Edited Feb 14, 2014

Just making sure, because I have been checking the Sony Online Store for over a month and a half and still NOT in stock? Really? The ONLY place I can find a PS4 is NewEgg, and they force you to buy one of their an absurd bundles with junk I would never buy. So, I guess this post is more out of frustration rather than expecting a real answer, but maybe I will get lucky. 

 

1) When in the world will I be able to buy a PS4 from the Sony Store?

2) Will I be able to buy WHAT I WANT, like just the PS4 and games of my choice or will it be part of some useless bundle? 

 

It is now almost Feb 2014 and I have been trying to find one, other than eBay, since mid December. Kind of absurd.

I guess depends on where you live. I see PS4's in my local big box retail stores every day now.

 

I haven't check online in some time.

Yeah, I have checked my local BestBuy and Wal Mart. Every time I go in they have been out of stock, but I work crazy hours and long hours, so never have much time to shop live. I kind of depend on online purchasing for a lot of items.

Yep.  I'm seeing them pretty much everywhere I look, too.  Walmart, Kmart, Target, Best Buy...  even Gamestop has 6 or 7 on hand at any given time.

 

It is the same console no matter where you buy it.  There is nothing special about one from the Sony Store over one from Walmart or Best Buy.  Sony still gets most of your money.

Ah, thanks. I swear the last time I checked they were out of stock. Maybe not, but the bundles are what I want to avoid. Most include junk I would never want. I will check it out though. I am just baffled I cannot get from the source and put on my Sony Credit Account.

Yeah, definitely, I get that. But like I mentioned, I am maybe a less common example, but I seriously do most of my shopping online due to the long and off hours I work. I hardly ever have time to run out and shop or go search for stuff when I do have the time away from work. It stinks.

Ya they've been coming and going on Best Buy.  They sell the shipments they get pretty fast.

Lucky for me, I'll have over 50 stores to search when my tax refund is here sometime next week. Its also nice to have a Sams Club membership since not everybody can search there.
