Just got a call from my next door neighbor telling me that a "big" brown box was delivered to me. She met the CP guy on the hallway (she was going home, CP guy was knocking on my door). Package is from Airport Road so i'm guessing it's the PS4. The thing is, i'm not even home and she was able to accept the delivery without showing any ID or giving out her name. I live in the condo btw, but still makes me wonder how can they just leave it there without any signature or ID. I could understand if they leave it at the front desk, but giving it out to a complete stranger?? Not cool.
That's actually illegal, isn't it?

My wife was home and she said she did not have to sign for it.. strange..
Package must have just been regular expedited instead of Priority then.

I know the CP worker who comes to my office knows me by name so they'll hand off any office related packages to me, but wow, a complete stranger?!

Every time I refresh and see ORDER STATUS IN PROGRESS, it's like getting kicked in the nards.

Prices on Kijiji starting to get lower now with people not selling them and people trying to undercut each other's prices. They're under $600 now.
Down to $470 here ... Still $50 margin for now.

Hmm. Doesn't look like I'm going to be getting mine today (Vancouver, BC). I always receive everything from Best Buy on release date. I have a tracking number, but no info on CP website yet. Guess I'm not getting it til Monday. That sucks

Ordered one of those 'Gamer's Club' versions which should have simply meant first shipment too. hmm. maybe I'll call and complain

Considering some PS3 games were bigger than 9Gbs (sports games included), it means (to me) EA is trying to pass a current-gen game as a next-gen game.
Not surprised.

EA being EA.

The "Out to delivery" notice wasn't updated for me instantly. I think it showed up around 10 or 11 AM? So it was delayed by about 2-3 hours.

Some of it I don't even believe is undercutting. It is people who want one putting up fake ads trying to lower all prices or people just trying to hurt resellers. I already have written two people today telling them off for killing resale for no good reason.

Seriously? The shipments should require a signature...
CP doesn't require signatures unless requested by the shipper or receiver beforehand. They are not required to drop off your package if it cannot fit in the mailbox, they will just drop off a notice and you can pick it up at the post office nearest you.

Thats fine, I just wanted to check up if UPS was sticking to their regular routes for each region and if they were treating it like a regular parcel. I'm actually happy they are, because if mines came earlier then I would have had to drive to the post office to pick it up. Not really in the mood to do that.
