surfisup1000: Our jbhifi is selling xbox ones --- didn't even know they'd gone on sale. 


They may be in trouble with MS for that... I'm pretty sure launch day is the 22nd.

I recieved the preorder email from the warehouse today.
The optional bundled games are very underwhelming.

Killzone Shadow Fall
Knack
NBA2k14
Injustice.

The only game i want at the moment is BF4.

If i wasn't such a fanboy id be off to get an Xbox one tomorrow.

What price is it? $650 including one of the bundles games?

edit: just found it on the website. just tweeted mightyape to see if they can match as I'm already getting NBA 2k14, it would be $30 cheaper than what I currently will be paying.

Console + 1 game = $715
Console + 2 games = $799
Console + 3 games = $879
Console + 4 games = 949

As above poster said, can only choose KZ:SF, Knack, NBA 2k14 and Injustice ultimate edition.

My teenage boys and their friends are surprisingly uninterested when I compare the current launches with interest in the past. So there's no pressure to buy a new one and I can wait until prices drop to sub-$500.

It is interesting that the new consoles are launching at prices comparable to the previous generation of consoles. So I expect the prices will also drop accordingly:
Game console launch price comparison in USD
Xbox 360 launch pricing by country
Playstation 3 launch pricing by country

[Edit: minor correction to grammar]

They have demo PS4's at EB games and JB hifi in wellington. The new controller feels awesome. Played a bit of knack, it is an interesting game, not picking it up at launch but might get it down the track when it's on special, might even end up on ps+ And that'd be good. Also played a few minutes on octodad but I couldn't really stop laughing because of the concept of you being an octopus and just seeing it move around was funny.

But yeah the controller feels really good. Can't wait til next Friday.

for anyone in lower hutt, wellington who has a EB games preorder and does not plan to go to the midnight launch.. I have an offer for you.

I my self have a pre order at the warehouse and they are not doing midnight launch. If you dont mind, i was hoping to swap pre orders with you. I dont know if eb games have taken down customer information because the warehouse didnt. So if its as easy as swapping pre order cards and you are interested, please message me. I am happy to offer an extra $40 to you for the trade. :)

Want it asap as i plan to put my games on download tonight so its available for me to play the following morning :P

I pre-ordered at noel lemming in store, they are pretty useless and lazy at corresponding about my order coming in, it almost like they don't know and have no record of who is getting what, certainly get the impression the floor store workers don't care.
If I had ordered online, at least I would get email or something if I called their number.

Has anyone pre-ordered in store at noel lemming, how are they letting you know about your order?
