I'm trying to get hold of one for Christmas for my lad but the signs are not good.
Do you peeps reckon it will be sold out and is it even worth pre-ordering ???

Life is a tool, use it wisely and properly. Don't break it, because you can't exchange it if you do.
Life is an instrument, it needs regular cleaning, maintenance and tuning to keep it at its best.

Fear, is not knowing. Terror, is finding out.

Both sony and ms have stated that they are "holding some back" for public sale on day 1.
I do know the best place to just walk in and buy one launch day should be costco, no pre orders.

I've already got both an Xbox one and a PS4.

You seem to be following me around the forum, yet I'm the troll of course.

(Plus it's late now, might as well have some fun while all is quiet)

You're waaaaaay to late to be ordering for launch, best you can hope for is to be lucky and drop on some "shelf stock"
Microsoft and Sony have said they are holding some consoles back for general public non pre order sale.

i pre-ordered mine on day of announcement

when i found out they changed it to fifa14 bundle, i switched to the forza5 bundle immediately

i think if you had on some pre-order sites up until the 8th to pay for your console to guarantee day one edition
