I think I might cancel my order of XBone. Been looking at the ones they have for sale on ebay. There are hundreds of XBone's up for bid but VERY few bids on them. Also, they XBone Launch Edition is back up on Amazon. Don't know if they got more Launch editions or if people are canceling their orders. My guess is the latter.
Correct in that you can cancel the order for a full refund. I meant that you just have to spend the cash NOW on it. They immediately bill your CC whereas Amazon won't charge you until they ship the item.

I have one xbone preordered at Gamestop which they guaranteed launch day delivery... but I have less and less confidence that it will be a solid investment

Which preorder through who? GameStop? If so, they only ask for 100 to reserve it.

BestBuy charges your CC now
Amazon doesn't charge you till they ship.

It's weird we say bestbuy charges you now. Because it won't accept a credit card that will expire around launch date... Why would it do that if it wasn't planning to hold off charging until launch?

If it expires then they have no where to bill it to and that's wasting a pre order slot for them. It will probably stay pending till then. They can't technically take your money without you getting a product. That's why it will more than likely stay pending.

Hmmm, weird. I had an online chat with a best buy rep and asked that very thing. He said they don't charge your card. They just place a hold on the money until it ships. Once it ships, then you get billed. Did you pay with the best buy credit card or with another card?

EDIT: You're right. Just checked my credit card balance and while there's no transaction under recent activity, the amount owed has been charged.

Ah perhaps this is the case. A "hold". Not sure how that works but I have Amex set to send me an email any time I get an electronic charge (set up after someone tried to use my card to buy concert tickets in Canada)....

I got a notification that Best Buy had charged my card... perhaps the "hold" and "charge" are treated the same by this system

I do remember though last time and many other times when BB did not honor pre-orders..take for instance the last ps3..


Quote:
Best Buy's website specifically states they have every right to cancel your order and have no obligation to keep up the agreement, even if this all seems unfair.

"Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. The Best Buy Web site reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason."

i went to gamestop today and preordered a launch edition ps4, only 3 spots left after he took my order (this is a low volume gamestop in small strip mall.) dont go to high traffic gamestops, go to a low volume store and you have a chance at a launch edition.

My little brother got a launch edition preorder at the GameStop in bay shore. The one in the ballys shopping center by south shore mall. The guy told him there was many spots still available.

I don't think I'm going to bother trying to flip one, especially considering BB charges on the spot

I'll just enjoy my personal ps4

You also have to realize some people don't live near highly populated areas with plenty of stores. And some people have plenty of $$$ and don't want to bother with trying to find one so they'll (even if there are plenty) and just order it ebay.

How about Radio Shack, do they do launch editions?

Ya but even if they do eBay will have tons of auctions. And there will be those who still pay. I suffer if they're auctions up already

Best Buy charging full price sucks.
