Didn`t pre-order your Playstation 4? You may be in luck

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Sony's much-anticipated Playstation 4 goes on sale Friday. People say they are impossible to get - if you haven't pre-ordered you'll have to get on eBay and pay more than $1,000. Those people are wrong.

There are several stores around Chicago that will have PS4s available for people who haven't pre-ordered. The deal is, you're going to have to show up at an inconvenient time to get in line and make your purchase.

Many Best Buy stores that have the systems are opening at midnight leading into Black Friday. There will be two individual lines: One line for people who have pre-ordered and another for people who are looking to show up and score one at the last minute.

North Side Best Buy employees told FOX 32 News that they are expecting people to show up around 10 p.m. Thursday night to begin the queue. So if you haven't pre-ordered and you want one, you need to show up early. They said demand far exceeds expectation.

There are also a few PS4-related items you may want to purchase that are actually available now. The PS4 only comes with one controller. If you want to play with a friend or more, you'll need at least one more of those to get the job done. A controller will cost you $60 at Best Buy.

There aren't many games available now, but they will be released over the coming weeks and months as more players purchase the new gaming system.

Best Buy could not guarantee a specific number of Playstation 4s will have at each store, but did say there are enough to fill the pre-orders, and then some.

Good luck gamers!
