GameStop: "We're Getting Dual Shock 4 Controllers Early"
Yesterday, we heard a story about how a Reddit user spotted the Dual Shock 4 controller in an EB Games in Canada.
To follow up on that, I checked in with several GameStop locations nearby, and I learned that they're expecting their shipments of PS4 controllers early. Three stores confirmed as much although none could give me an exact number.
I also found out that the controllers are not street-dated so if you wanted to pick one up (or nab your pre-order early), you're free to do that. At the store closest to me, where I have an extra Dual Shock 4 pre-ordered, they told me to just keep checking back over the next week or so, and I might be able to snag it soon. Of course, there's not much I can do with the controller without the PS4 but hey, it's nice to know. And it's a good sign in terms of availability, too, don't you think?
Remember, that's the same store that told me when I initially pre-ordered the controller, that I might not get it on launch day. I think they were only getting 12 at the time. Now, though, the situation seems to have changed for the better. Got yours pre-ordered?
