I strolled into a GameStop on my way home from work yesterday.  

 

My Exact words:  Let me ask you the dumb question of the day.  Do you have any PS4's in stock?

 

GameStop employee (who looked like a 12yr old boy  :woot: ):  Yes we do.  Would you like one?

 

Me:  (Silent for about 10seconds.  Was caught off guard by him answering yes)  Yes I would like one thank you....

 

 

Now the real problem. I managed to sneak the PS4 into the house and past my wife without her noticing.  I told my wife I would only get one console this gen.  And she already knows I have a Xbox One.

 

Now I have 30days (GameStops return period as of today, on unopened items) to decide if the PS4 is worth the wrath of Mrs. W.... :/  :cry:

I was in a similar situation 2 weeks ago...she sent me to WalMart after work for garbage bags paper towels etc. So there I am wandering the store and I see an employee pushing a cart towards electronics to stock the dept. with a ps4 on top. I snagged it and when I walked through the door carrying the console by the handle she laughed and said "couldn't help yourself could you".

Would she actually notice another console?  or maybe you can just swap it out for the ps3 (if you have one).  Last year I replaced a panasonic bluray player with a pioneer elite and it took my wife a good 3 weeks to realize it was different than the one that was there..

This man knows his stuff!  Just swap it in and out when you need to use it, so she only ever see's one console at any one point!

Ask / beg to buy one, then if she says yes, find a time to show it off (like you went out and purchased it).

If no, then may want to consider returning.

She will definitely notice... For her not to pay attention to those type of things, she would definitely notice...
