Best Buy will hold your new console pre-orders for up to 8 days

Saturday, 2nd November 2013 23:18 GMT By Phil Owen

If you have ordered a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One from a Best Buy store, you will have five days from when those consoles release to get it before they cancel your order and sell it to somebody else. If you ordered from and chose in-store pickup, you’ll have eight days. Source

    @1 – This is standard BBY policy for ANY pre-order, regardless if it’s a game, console, or tablet. 5 days has been the policy for *years*.

    If anything, get pissed at GameStop; they hold them for 2 DAYS, AND they charge you $5 for S&H:

    “Man, what terrible timing to fall into a coma, right before the release date of the PS4. At least I preordered it.”

    “Uhh, sir, the PS4 released nine days ago. We already canceled your preorder and sold it to someone else.”

    @ #9 : Lol c’mon dude those fingers barely coming out? Hasn’t it been like 5 months since MS pulled the 180 and your barely pulling those fingers out? You must be one loyal fanboy. Lol enough of your fanboyism and go play some COD or whatever you enjoy.

    @12 Lol im not the one taking down a “burrito”, yet clearly MS shoved their “burrito” down your throat last night because their load is barely coming. Also how are you responding so fast? Are you sitting in front of your computer waiting for someone to reply or something?

    @ 14, y’now just by seeing how you comment i can easily tell your between 13-17 year old kid who’s past his bedtime, sitting on his computer eating chettoo puffs and drinking soda, trying to troll a website with his pathetic fanboyism because hes to insecure to think for himself so he decides to join a group of fanboys, trying to defend a product he probably knows nothing about or even try to take facts for consideration, and judging another product without actually knowing anything about it yet tries to deny thats its any good, when he hasnt even played ot tested either of them yet? Yeah dude you sound really pathetic its depressing.

    Im out yo, theres no point in arguing with a fanboy like you, might as well argue with a rock instead. Later

    No respect for you. I respect everybody else. Most adults don’t respect emo teenagers that cry when their console sucks this generation so don’t take it so personal you little whiney crying self entitled little bitch. I’m trying to prepare you how your kind will be treated in real life when your pathetic waste of breath meal weakshit body steps out into the real world and you open your little bitch mouth and a seventy five year old man crippled with arthritis beats you keyboard warrior bitch face into the ground and you cry like a little bitch just like you do behind you keyboard when you are constantly reminded every day with articles about how your precious xbone product sucks hard and falls short of the x360.

    @25 douche thinks i have an alt account because i think he is a little bitch. Little does he realize that 99% of VG247′s population also think he is a little bitch. In his defense you need to have an IQ over 60 to begin to correlate two different past experiences against each other so don’t hold it against him. We must all be rocking alts.

    You know, the person I feel worst for in all this is Phil, having his news stories ruined by all this shit.

    I am sad for those who forget or just plain have too much work to pick up their console in time limit.
    This is a bit of a utter BS from Bestbuy unless Bestbuy start reminding their customer by phone and by Email to pick up their good(s).
