Wish I was impulsive enough to spend 400 on a Resogun machine...
I mean, I REALLY wanna play Resogun.
Yep. Bought one. I was driving around for a bit tonight checking some of the lines at the local places around town, and it looked like chances were getting slim. This works out wonderfully. And that one-day Prime member shipping....so I still get it on launch day. Oh Amazon, you the best.
I almost lost my Amazon pre-order due to moving and my payment info (address) changing. The billing address was different so when the card was processed it was declined.
It took over an hour on the phone with Amazon but I got it sorted. This might have happened to others as well.
@chaser324: Probably a good move. I'm really thinking hard about doing the same...I mean, I love new gadgets and I really want a PS4, but there aren't any games that interest me coming out until Infamous besides Resogun. I'm going to think it over at the gym and if I change my mind, maybe there will still be time to cancel.
I canceled my preorder, yet I'm tempted. Honestly though, I'd only play Killzone and Resogun, and my PS4 would lay dormant until... what, Ground Zeroes? InFamous? Whichever console exclusive comes out first.
You guys say stuff like this but it is funny. I haven't booted my 360 in months. Other than console exclusives there is no reason to buy a console game anymore for people with a decent pc. So if you "know" there is going to be a console exclusive you want like Phantom Pain you may as well buy it now. The price might go down a little in a year but it is just as likely to not change at all. It will sit there for months with no use (if you have a good pc) but truth is (if you have a good pc) it is going to do that sooner or later anyway.
It is what it is. I preordered mine back in June. I didn't decide on any games until this week and the Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal popped up.. So I bought 6 games for it (Amazon didn't actually get NFS in time?). I'm not particularly excited for any of them but do look forward to NFS and Lego Marvel.
I'm going to get the system sooner then later so why not get it as soon as possible and have fun with the rest of the world enjoying these things brand new? Price on them won't come down til next holiday season with Black Friday deals. No way I'm waiting that long. I'll pay the hypothetical $100 (if that) discount difference from waiting and instead get it a whole year earlier.
That's fine if people wanna wait for one particular game they love and then buy it but I don't understand why people emit a sort of high-and-mighty attitude and are like.. "oh well the systems don't have any killer games.. useless hardware.." Just enjoy it for what it is.
I'll note though that the only other console I've ever got on launch day was Dreamcast. Skipped school that day (much to my mother's dismay) and waited in line at the mall with her. So it's fun to get on board with a lot of other excited people. These console launches hardly ever happen these days so there is no shame in being excited, even if you don't get great games at first.
