Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the release date still showing as 12/31/2013?
The manufacturer (Sony Computer Entertainment America) has not yet provided an official release date for the PlayStation 4. As soon as it is announced, we will update the detail page with the date. If you ordered either a Launch Edition or a Launch Bundle, your order will be eligible for Release-Date Delivery.
What is Release-Date Delivery?
Release-Date Delivery is available for eligible pre-order items we can deliver on the release date to ZIP codes within the continental U.S. Shipping charges for Release-Date Delivery vary by item and are displayed on the order confirmation page. For Amazon Prime members, Release-Date Delivery is free when selecting Two-Day Shipping.
What is the difference between the Standard Edition and Launch Edition?
The Standard Edition of the PlayStation 4 is identical to the Launch Edition. Due to high demand, we cannot offer Release-Date Delivery on the Standard Edition of the PlayStation 4. If you order the Standard Edition, you may receive your PlayStation 4 after the release date — We will ship your Standard Edition order as soon as we receive sufficient inventory.
Are the Launch Bundles eligible for Release-Date Delivery?
Yes. The Launch Bundles are eligible for Release-Date Delivery.
Do I have to pay anything to reserve my console?
There is no fee associated with pre-ordering on Amazon. You will be charged for the console after your order has entered the shipping process.
What is Amazon’s pre-order cancellation policy?
You can cancel your pre-order at any time before it enters the shipping process. If you cancel an order for either the Launch Edition or one of the Launch Bundles, we cannot guarantee you will be able to pre-order the Launch Edition or Launch Bundle at a later date.
Why can I only buy one PlayStation 4 right now?
Due to high demand, we want to ensure as many customers as possible have the opportunity to purchase a PlayStation 4. Amazon reserves the right to limit Release-Date Delivery to one PlayStation 4 per customer.
