If I pre ordered a PS4 now will I be offered the bundle package as well?

My understanding is that you would have had to pre-order before/including August 6th to be eligible for the upgrade to a bundle.

'stu do we have to go threw [sic] this yet again..read my posts before kicking off..'

I am not too sure what you mean here either. Just to correct you. I wasn't 'kicking off' about anything, just curious as to why you continue to believe that people have or were jumping the queue and I was not being 'an ass about it'. My question really evolves around why would this cause a problem for Amazon, the system is predominantly automated and based on the order number. Regardless of whether 100 or 1000 people pre-ordered and then upgraded, doesn't mean anything, because it's a wasted effort - as the bundles are given to those with earlier initial order dates. I simply don't see your logic. No one is manually going through these orders, even if they were, it would be pretty simple to realise which were later and earlier order numbers with a basic spread sheet.

Yes, you are right I did use the link and I am glad I did. I neither feel any guilt or remorse for doing so, why should I. Given that all I simply did was notify Amazon of my bundle choice earlier than others. It's not queue jumping as there isn't a queue to jump.

you have quite a bit of misinformation on various posts. you have heard rumours around certain aspects of the ps4 and then tried to turn these into facts.

I asked you to provide info in threads and you choose to ignore it, because you cant provide evidence

Has anyone had confirmation of their bundle yet?

My order's currently in limbo having heard nothing from Amazon following my choice of 'Bundle 6'.

Any information would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Fletcher, Amazon have been explicit in stating that the only factor that matters is the date that your order was placed.

Whether you received an e-mail or not, used a link or not, to make a selection has no bearing on anything and there is no queue based on receiving e-mails.

Stu is absolutely correct here.

@H Rowley
I confirmed my bundle choice with Amazon chat just to be sure, but they also told me that the orders will be updated by November 4th, so it seems we just need to wait for now.

The facts of all this will present themselves in due course, until then I think we should all agree to let this debate go!

'...the queue im referring to is the order people received emails asking them did they want to upgrade.'

Hopefully we can put this to bed. It makes no difference when people received the emails. It's not a first come first serve based on those responding to their email from Amazon, it's a first come first served based on those who first pre-ordered the solus PS4. Therefore, using the link first really made no difference to someone using the email 10 days later. If they had initially pre-ordered before me, then they would be first in line.

In as much as I am in favour of open discussion, free speech and right of opinion, but when you are using rumour and guesswork dressed as fact, this only causes concern and worry for those that perhaps are new and figuring it out. By all means, if you have something valid to say, then say it, but stop being a clanging bell.

Where on earth do you dig up this information from. You claim Amazon and Sony, but have nothing to back that up. If you are relying on information from Amazon CS, then that is the blind leading the blind there. They know little about what's going on with the PS4, there job is to deal with order errors, returns, faulty goods, complaints etc, not know everything that the PS4 bundles will consist of and when they will be allocated. Then we come to Sony. Do you have some kind of direct contact with Sony perhaps you know Kazuo Hirai, or Mark Cerny. Who knows..... the mind boggles.... or perhaps you simply make stuff up in the desire to sound all knowing. Go on, I know you want to say it '.... I work in the industry...' :-P

Fletcher, you have no idea of how databases work.

Do you really think Amazon are just manually sifting through emails that were sent out to their staff in the order in which people made their bundle selection? That's not how it works.

Amazon's system will query all the PS4 preorders and sort them by date, then find the associated selection for each preorder and allocate them until they run out of a given bundle. This is likely to be an automated process that requires no human interaction, so no time is wasted and there is no delay because of it.

The delay you're speaking of is a figment of your imagination based on a lack of understanding about computer technology, software and database systems.

Well, this has certainly escalated! lol

It amazes me how people can get so worked up about such trivial matters.

@ W. Fletcher

For some reason you think I am stressing over this, me thinks you are projecting. Given the fact that you have and are quite insulting and rude to people, when others haven't been to you. Remember, just because someone doesn't agree on something you state as fact and calls that to question, is not a personal attack on you, just on your statements. There is no need to be rude or insulting to others, simply because they do not agree with your view or comments.

As for the websites. I used to like IGN, but they seem to be late in their news. Polygon is good and of course Edge, given that's more industry lead.

Some of your comments I simply couldn't figure because of the atrocious grammar and spelling. I am guessing you are stating you have a friend who works for Sony? What division and where?

Oh and finally. No one is being aggressive towards you, they are simply frustrated by your misleading comments and the lack of proof. The quickest way you can shut me and everyone else up? Provide the proof of what you are claiming in your comments. Granted some of what you state is pretty obvious, other comments dressed as fact though are just plain ignorance.

For the record. Judging from how your comments are written and put together and the fact you are unable to realise the difference between someone not agreeing with you and someone making a personal attack at you, one can only assume that you are not very old, maybe late teens. In which case, just to remind you, 99% of the people here are having an adult conversation. If you want to 'troll' or be obnoxious, go to the comments on IGN.

**update**

I notice that Amazon have removed your comment. I guess even they thought your comments were insulting too.

I have tweeted shuhei yoshida a number of times asking whether the ps4 takes hdd thicker than 9.5mm, but he never replys. any chance you can find out for me, or speak to one of your friends at sony.

if he replys, could you provide a link to the tweet, as a source.

Fletcher, I already work as a developer with database technology. And you obviously don't. :)

I'm putting you on ignore now because you've proven beyond any reasonable doubt that your information cannot be trusted. Bye.

EDIT: Hmm... Amazon just deleted his post. :p

Martin Brentnall, i put him on ignore this morning because of his attitude, this isn,t the only topic he has been aggressive in. i think he seeks out arguments in order to get attention. its been so much nicer since i put him on ignore

I got email some time ago, I went for Watch Dogs + PS4, but still waiting on confirmation.

Hi,

I've finally pre ordered the PS4, & noticed the bundle deal. If you ordered after the 7th aug can you still be chosen?

Worfthedog says:
Still no email for me - keep being told by CS that it will arrive (ordered 29th May), but in the FAQ it says emails will be sent out in order.

Don't be expecting confirmations for the Watch Dogs bundle - the game has been delayed until 2014.

Doh, 10 minutes too late - that's what I get for trawling through the drama that is this thread :-D

Ubisoft have said as it's an official bundle they will have to do something about it.

I expect the bundles will be updated again and we'll get another round of emails

@ WorftheDog

Use the link, rather than wait for the email, otherwise you won't get a bundle. Amazon are fine with people using the links, as well as the emails, so it doesn't matter.
