    I have just been speaking to someone from Amazon and they are taking payment on Tuesday. I just wanted to create a thread to inform people Amazon are taking payment Tuesday because people thought they would take the payment once the console was shipped.
    I want to make sure people have the funds in the account so they dont miss out.

    We can only dream!

    Be interesting to hear when some of the XB1 preorders had their payment taken from Amazon.

    I started chat because on my order it says delivery estimate 29th November but was told from their end it says delivery 29th November so I will receive it the Friday launch day unless there is a mistake by the people delivering it, he did say I think but I forgot which company he said they are using.

    Yeah - then it would turn up on wednesday with a crate of cold ale, and a note to your boss saying you've got the rest of the week off.

    Me too mate I was more thinking as it's a console launch and Sony won't want them in the wild before release day.

    A mate got an XB1 from Amazon and payment was taken last Thursday afternoon at which time it was shipped via Parcel Force from Aberdeenshire and he received it at lunchtime on Friday. I've got my PS4 ordered with them and expect the exact same thing to happen this week.

    I don't think there is any chance of us getting before Friday. Couriers will just be told to hold onto the packages and deliver Friday.

    Just checked on my Amazon CC status as the missus has been bending it a bit getting all the Xmas presents out of the way.

    It has a £3k limit :eek: :D Time for me to start bending it,

    Likewise. Depending on courier used it could be a text notification on the morning of delivery with an option to defer a day or leave with a neighbour.

    Most couriers that have left me a non delivery card because I was out have included a phone no. to call and rearrange delivery for the next week day. If memory serves the cut off was usually sometime before 7:30, so a trip to collect might not be needed. :)

    I'm guessing there are more ps4 than xb1 orders and amazon just need to give themselves more time to get things sorted. I know in the past I've had stuff released to and held by the couriers until release date with a big "Do not deliver before xxxx" sticker on the outer box.

    Well as long as I get it. Busy looking for a new set of cans now.

    Options are:

    Skull candy slyr (look good and same company as astro)
    Triton Kunie (look ok and versatile)
    Astro a40 (used to have a pair. Nice but loads if wires)

    Any one got any thoughts

    Doubt will come Thursday guys

    Hello Tony,

    As we discussed in our chat I’ve checked your order for the Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) and can see that it was placed on Wednesday, 12 June 2013 with First Class delivery selected.

    Rest assured that we’ll dispatch your order prior to the release day, with the intention that it arrives with you on the actual release day.

    The information on the item’s product detail page refers to orders placed on or after 6 August 2013 and will not impact your order. Please note that changes made to your order between now and the date of dispatch may affect its Release Day Delivery eligibility.

    I hope this helps. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Warmest regards,
    Neil A.

    I can't speak for the other two sets but both my akg k550s and sennheiser hd598s are far superior to the astro a40's I got with the mixamp. For music, movies as well as gaming when connected to the mixamp. I got fed up with the wires though so use wireless chimera 5.1's for gaming.

    I don't know if I've messed up here. I'm changing bank accounts and my day 1 switch is tomorrow with everything due to be finalised by next Tuesday.

    I didn't realise at the time that this might affect my Amazon payment as my old account will probably be closed by Friday. If Amazon take payment tomorrow I'll be OK, otherwise I could have some issues. So hopefully payment is taken tomorrow.

    I would call/online chat with Amazon if you are in the process of changing payment methods.

    For info be careful with anything Amazon tell you, especially on the online chat. The information from one advisor to the next was completely inconsistent and the majority was incorrect in the run up to X1 launch.

    For reference money came was reserved on my credit card for my X1 order the day it was dispatched which was Thursday PM. I'd be surprised if Amazon take any money until dispatch to be honest.

    Good luck guys.
