if they really told you this then that person should be fired...to answer you question though,you will not get it before the official release date..

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say no. Why would Sony give a release date when stores will just make up there own.

I was thinking th same thing, but it could be true because the employee was someone that didnt look like she knew a whole like about gaming which means it could be tru because you know how those people who play games are they will pump the console and games up to make people believe anything, so it may be true

the stores themselves might have them 3 days prior but if they released them before the street date they would be breaking a legal contract..theres mystery shoppers as they are called just to see if they can get them early and this has been a practice for many years with consoles,games,movies,music etc...

 

i have read stories where stores have had to pay upwards of a half million for releasing a game one day early,and another 5000 for each copy they released...imagine the penalty for a console..lol

I preordered my PS4 through my Local Walmart in Indiana and will not receive the console until the 21st of November as I did their free home shipping. Hopefully my luck is great and I get it a day after the launch day. However, I supposedly get Battlefield 4 on November 7th. I did preorder my Playstation 4 on July 7th.
Enjoy life, enjoy gaming.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that lady didn't know what she was talking about. Maybe she meant the console would ship on the 12th to your house and then arrive on release day (the 15th)...this is just a guess from me though so take it with a grain of salt.
