$50 seems fair.

I agree with you. But I would just wait until it comes out, and if I still wanted it, buy it then. But that's just me.

I'm not rolling with anybody who's paying for the privilege of promising to give a store a lot of money later on. They should be freakin' paying you. Buy online and pay nothing for pre-orders, like the pros do.

I didn't mind putting down 100 dollars. I actually thought the preorders would be sold out by the time I got there in the afternoon because I thought this was going to be super high in demand or something. Now if the deposit was only 5 dollars I bet it would been sold out by then because I would imagine most people don't want to just give up 100 dollars as if they are putting a product on layaway.

I honestly don't even think the PS4 will be worth the full value of the console until at least 1-2 years after it's out. The first gen titles will be slightly upscaled versions of the current gen titles and once they drop current gen completely then they'll be able to fully take advantage of what the consoles are capable of without having to develop for the lowest common denominator.

I'm not thinking about PS4 yet. PS3 still has a few more year in it, so I'm not thinking about it. But yea, $100 is steep for a deposit. $50-$75 seems okay.

Stopped reading after this laughably ridiculous statement.

I pre-ordered a PS4 and 6 games off of EBgames/Gamestop.com, paid for in full. My excitement got the best of me, sorry wallet
