Sony will release the Playstation 4 console tonight at midnight, many Best Buy stores will open at midnight for the PS4 release date.
Best Buy will have limited quantities available beyond the quantity that was pre-ordered. Tickets will be distributed up to 2 hours before midnight on a first-come, first-serve basis for any available quantities. Stores will know the number of available consoles and will be able to provide updates to customers as any lines may form. Limit one console per person.
According to the Best Buy website, most of their stores "will create two separate lines: one for pre-order customers and one for customers looking to purchase a console from the available limited quantities. Some stores may need to operate differently; however, all of our stores will be utilizing signage to manage their lines along with employee assistance to ensure everyone is aware of the process throughout the day. Stores will begin processing pre-order customers prior to processing any customers looking to purchase a console."
If you pre-ordered a PS4 for in-store pickup you will need a government photo ID, the credit or debit card used for the order and your order number. You need to go to the Best Buy where your order was placed, not just any locations. If you can't make the midnight opening, the PS4 will be held for 8 days after. After 8 days, any orders that have not been picked up will be cancelled and made available for purchase to others.
The PS4 will cost $399 USD, however, it does not include the PlayStation Camera.
