Being able to buy controllers and games before getting the actual console is more of a tease than having nothing at all.
Games? Sure. Controllers? If it were yet another mildly tweaked DualShock like 2 and 3 were then yes, but this works with many PS3 games and can be made to work with PC for the most part, so it definitely is nice it's out early. Shame about the lack of color choices though.

No!!! I paid off my PS4 first, instead of my copy of Killzone SF! How could I have been so careless???

I did stop into gamestop and buy a PS4 controller and camera early, but I won't be doing the same for killzone. I had a reason to pick up the controller early since you can use it with other devices. No use for the game disc until I get the console though.

killzone and ps4 launch edition order, godspeed to my front door!

I wouldnt doubt Amazon doing this soon. It is money in their pocket faster. They did it with the controller. I wouldnt mind since I am getting my preorder from walmart. I still cant get confirmation if I can pick that up at midnight yet.

Well the game went Gold last week didn't it? No reason why it wouldn't be available.

Didn't Xbox 360 have some games being sold a week or two before the console launch?

Called my local GS, they said it was a mistake. They also said that they were told to expect PS4 games to be available on Nov 12th.

Considering you cant play them without the console, the games probably dont have a street date just the console and they probably get killzone in tomorrow. It seems legit to me and I preordered the game the day after the e3 sony press conference and got a text if that matters and the preorder is at what would be considered a very high traffic store (they had the maximum of ps4 preorders available)
They wouldn't want launch titles dribbling out over the coming weeks though - it'd impact their sales figures for launch day/week and therefore the planned press announcements (if they sell well)

Does anyone know the KZ:SF review embargo date?

I wonder if pre-launch this game is going to get the GTAV treatment, ie, tons of twitch streams and gifs before the majority of the population gets their hands on the PS4.

I have kind of an off topic question for people who've preordered at GameStop.

Back when pre-orders first opened for PS4, I went in and put $100 down on one. Haven't been back since, and plan to put the rest down before its release.

But, I'm curious, since I haven't paid it off fully, could that potentially put me lower on the priority list? Is there a chance that, since it isn't fully paid off yet, that I might not be able to get one on the 15th?

I seriously doubt there will be a shortage of game discs... If you've got a console, I think you are good to go.

Can someone explain the point of release dates for me? What's wrong with selling the item once you get it in stock?
Errm, building hype and leading up to something is important to drive sales? Different stores get them at different times.

In this case since no one can play the games since the console isn't released yet, it doesn't make sense to hold the games until the consoles released.

Generally people spoil the game earlier if they get the game before everyone else. (GTA5 for example)

Levels the playing field for retailers. Otherwise companies could have a pecking order and only ship games to certain retailers first, thus giving them more sales than the competition.

I meant the console, not games. My PS4 isn't fully paid off.
Apologies for the mix up... I would expect a money down pre-order = a pre-order regardless of if it is paid off in full... that logical, but the honest answer is, I have no idea.

I am in no rush to pick up my copy I just want to make sure they still hold it till launch. Normally they say they hold games for 48 hours once they start to sell them so that has me worried.

But seriously who is in charge of their texting system... I can only imagine how many calls they have caused to stores or later today empty trips to the store if they refuse to sell.

Except this time around, there won't be ~160 million PS4s already out there on which people can play the game in advance.

Pretty sure the review embargo is before the PS launch. I think I heard that somewhere.

True, but there will inevitably be people who acquire the console early... and it seems they will legally be able to purchase PS4 games prior to the 15th.

I got the call as well last night. I called the store and spoke to the guy I know knows his shit and knows what's going on and he was iffy that they will have the game on Tuesday and isn't sure why the calls went out. He said for sure though that the official street date was 11/2 though. He asked to give "him" a call and not the store today around 1:00pm to verify if they get it in a shipment today. If not, expect it Saturday.
