Ok I work at a walmart I'll give you the shit that I got from the Sony rep and from the stock info I've seen. The shipments we get come in either Sunday, Tuesday, or Friday. Seeing as sony logistics is in charge of their own shipping right now it would stand to reason that Best Buy would get them those days as well. We have been getting them (north eastern oh Wal Mart if you care) 3 days a week at a rate of between 2 and 6 per shipping day. The best thing you can do is show up at opening on days they get stock and hope for the best. Good Luck and at worst sell the gift cards and go amazon as they seem to be getting stock in at more regular intervals.

You need to check with your local Best Buy's management or sales staff either on phone or in person. Different locations generally have different rates of allotment and sale-through, so you shouldn't rely on general online advice.

Walmart often negotiates completely separate deals with electronics manufacturers and so their shipment allotment isn't necessarily going to be representative of other retail chains.

I live in Ohio and have been checking online daily and calling every bestbuy daily I know they are tired of me. I even called a store in Dayton which is over an hour away. I was gonna make the drive if they had it but alas no luck i'm hopeless. All my friends have their PS4's by going to Gamestop or Meijier or Wal-Mart. I dont know why I thought best buy would have a larger inventory. If I would have just asked for Gamestop gift cards id be living the life right now.

If only I could convince them all to get Xbox One's those thing are littered everywhere especially Best Buy but they all refuse due to experiences we all had on 360.

Whoa is me...

Amazon receives a new shipment on the 12th, keep checking there. I just got one from the shipment they received on the 8th, bought it on the 5th, and it shipped today (the 9th).

Exact same process will net you one, just keep refreshing the page until one shows in stock and be quick.
