GameStop Kicks Off PS4 First To Know Information Program

Sony has announced the PlayStation 4, but that's only the beginning. Obviously, much more in the way of info and details will arrive throughout the course of this year.

And GameStop wants to keep you up-to-date and in-the-know. The retailer hasn't started taking pre-orders on the new console just yet (saying there "simply aren't enough details announced"), but they are offering a PS4 First To Know program.

GameStop PowerUp Rewards members can sign up to receive title announcements, trade and pre-order details and other offers related to the PS4. Just hit the link above or visit any US GameStop location to make sure you remain in the loop. However, bear in mind that signing up is not a pre-order or reservation, "nor does it guarantee a PS4 on a specific date or at a certain price." It's purely for information. Of course, you could just keep coming to PSXE and you might get that info faster but who knows? Maybe GameStop will be privy to certain details even before the press. I suppose that's feasible.

And it'll be interesting to see when GameStop can finally start taking pre-orders…would you pre-order one?

One of the first bits of info (i didn't read this myself i was told by someone) that the CEO said that the new xbox won't allow used grames while the ps4 will. Don't know if its true but figured id share it with you fine people. And no. My business is long since over with these guys.

Yeah, I read that too, but have to see what MS says once they officially announce and eventually release their next console.

Yoshi himself stated that PS4 will NOT block used games. Google it!

It would not be a wise move for any of the manufacturers to do this outright. What I see is that they are implementing different purchasing options that will decrease used games sales. They will eventually just remove them from the equation altogether in time. It will be a natural evolution. Particularly when physical media is no longer relevant.

"Particularly when physical media is no longer relevant."

I cringe for that day.

GameStop just wants to get the drop on other retailers. Makes sense. I joined if only to pre-order as soon as it is available. I am anticipating high demand so I will do this with other retailers as well. Us gamers have to secure our entertainment needs.

Well the CEO did get to see Battlefield 4…. Thats always the funny thing to me that used game critics seem to forget/ignore, Gamestop makes a ton of money on new game sales also.

All I know is that my PS3 will be traded in as soon as a killer deal arrives. But yes Ben, PSX is the place for me to get PS4 info!!

The more I got to think about it, I am not going to trade all of my PS3's in though. I will put it in the Master Bedroom so I can begin the execute the plan of turning my wife of 20 years into a gamer. HA!!

MS will hafta shell out some more dough to keep Gamestop pushing their products over Sony after this move.

Even if gamestop got some details first, everyone in the program would immediately start blabbing about it online.

That's really funny!

Gamestop isn't taking pre-orders yet, but EB Games in Australia is….

In fact….

I put a pre-order down last night 😀

They have put an estimated price of $900 AUD, which is a huge overestimate, but I get it.

Really it seems we are going to be overcharged big time yet again!
