I sincerely hope everyone here who embarks on a mission on Sunday to pick one up gets their hands on one.

Was at Best Buy last night, and the door was open to the office and there were some sitting in there, obviously being held for Sunday.

Gamespot simply took so many preorders that they are instructed to say the console is sold out until they can dispatch all of them and it will take a while :D
But they're getting new consoles and they're alerting those on their preorder lists.

Gamestop said Sunday as well according to fellow gaffers.

Black Sunday it is.
the two I went to said Gamestop got their yesterday and they're gone till after Chrismas, I figure why bother when the bigger retailers are confirmed and would get more stock anyway

Any idea how big this shipment is for Best Buy? Last one literally sold out in 5 minutes locally.
no idea but the girl there told me there be lines, big ones, at midnight, I shall test my might at walmart

From what I saw our shipment this time around is smaller than last weeks. Both district and store wise.
define smaller and where are you, I'm in jersey tri-state area I think we'd get more stock middle America

When is the day to buy a game worth playing on the PS4?

March 21, 2014, is an acceptable answer. As is September 9, 2014.

Our district got 1245, now we're getting them in the low 1000s from what I glanced over. X1s actually went from a 1090 previous week to 1600+ this time around.

You shoulda snagged one, hid it somewhere in the store, casually walk in on Sunday and boom, you're good to go.

Sorry but this isnt entirely true. I'm more then sure gs got all preorders allocated on launch. If people didn't pick up their console within 48 hours, their pre-order remained but their console was sold.

Let's not include games that have incredibly mixed reviews. (Even excluding game critic reviews, could you honestly say Knack is a AAA, must-play game? If you could, I'd be surprised.)
In a perfect world, Knack would have sold 2.1 million copies right now. That's all I'm saying, playboy.

Okay, I'll give you that. Let me alter my question. When is the day to buy a game worth spending $400 on the PS4, then?
There will never be a day where it is worth spending $400 on 1 game. People that do that are loco. I bought a PS4 because I know it will bring me years of games worth playing. Also 1080p games beats the hell out of the sub-hd of PS3/360 games.
