For those of you that actually need strategy guides for video games, I’m going to write a Playstation 4 launch day guide that will help you stay on the right track. I’m going to go over what you should be doing on launch day and what you should be playing.

I’m excited!

are you excited?

Let’s get started!

Midnight, November 15th

Scenario #1

You weren’t one of the smart ones that pre-ordered the Playstation 4 or any games.

If you want to get your hands on the Playstation 4, you’re probably freezing your ass off right now while you’re in a line filled with a bunch of other people that will stop at nothing to get their hands on the Playstation 4.

Yes, that guy behind you just bumped into you and touched your ass, but you kind of liked it, because his hand was a little warm. At this point, you probably let out a a huge sigh and gaze at your own breath in the cold air.

How did you let this happen to yourself? Are you a sadist!?!?

If you’re not willing to stand in the blistering cold to get your hands on a Playstation 4, you’re most likely not going to get one until next year.

Click here to purchase a Playstation 4 on Amazon.com– You most likely won’t get it until next year, but you’ll get it as soon as they’re available again.

If you do decide to stay in line, good luck.

You’re going to need it.

Scenario #2

Right now you are probably laying in your own bed with a smile stretched across your face while visions of Playstation 4′s and dual shock controllers dance in your head. Congratulations, you were smart enough to realize that you needed to preorder the Playstation 4. You are going to have an awesome day!

Rise and Shine! (11:00am)

Okay, it’s a little late to be waking up, but you’re a gamer. Chances are, you usually don’t get up until 1:00pm, but you’re excited to play your Playstation 4 today, so you managed to crawl your ass out of the bed at what gamers consider to be a reasonable time.

If you pre-ordered the Playstation 4, you’re probably sipping on some coffee filled with peppermint mocha creamer. You have the luxury of going to pick up your brand new Playstation 4 from the store you pre-ordered it at your own leisure. Either that or you’re waiting VERY impatiently on the mail man.

If you didn’t pre-order the Playstation 4, I’m going to assume you were able to snag yourself a system from the mob of angry, sweaty nerds you had to fight off. You’re probably covered in bruises and walking with a limp, because you got beat down with a belt that had a belt buckle attached to it that looked like an NES controller and some dude bit you on the leg like a zombie from The Walking Dead while you were trying to escape with your life and your new Playstation 4.

Either way, you should have a smile on your face right now, because you have a brand new Playstation 4. CONGRATS!!

Let’s get some games!

It’s a great day, because you not only have a new Playstation 4, but you now have an excuse to buy a whole new library of video games to go with it. Now is your chance to purchase all of those games that you have just been dying to play on the PS4.

NOTE: If you purchased certain (recent) Playstation 3 games, you can upgrade to the Playstation 4 version of the video game for only $10. Call of Duty: Ghosts is one of the video games that is allowing you to upgrade, so keep this in mind. That way, you’ll save some cash and can buy other videos games with the saved money.

What PS4 games would I buy?

I would personally mix it up among genres, so that way you can get the full Playstation 4 experience. This is what I would personally go with:

  • NBA2K14 (sports game)
  • Need for Speed: Rivals (racing game)
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts (first person shooter game) 

Meet the monster!

The most beautiful box in the world is right in front of you. Inside this box is the Playstation 4 console w/ dualshock 4 controllers. This is what dreams are made of.

Go ahead and open up that box. Do you smell that wonderful smell of fresh plastic? It would rival the smell of a brand new car.

Get all those manuals out of the way, because you probably won’t take the time to read them. Underneath all those manuals you see the sexiest game system ever created right in front of you. Your heart just grew 3x its size today.

Of course, you will also want to grab that dual shock 4 controller and feel it in your hands. Get used to that feeling, because this is the controller that is going to be glued to your hands for the rest of the day… And probably for the next 3 days.

Right now you probably just remembered that you forgot to pick up a second controller. Chances are, you’re not going to need one just yet, because you’re going to keep that Playstation 4 all to yourself, but we’re gamers and we always want a second controller around just in case.

Hook your Playstation 4 up to the television.

This step is always lame, but you’re so excited about your new Playstation 4 that you don’t mind crawling behind your television as if you’re one of the characters from the movie The Descent and knocking over everything that’s in your way.

After you cuss your head off, your new system is hooked up and all ready to go.

You get bonus points if you hooked up your Playstation 4 without the aid of the owner’s manual, by the way. icon wink Playstation 4 Launch Day Strategy Guide What You Need to Do on November 15th

The time is here. Your Playstation 4 has been successfully plugged up to the television and now it’s time to rock! For days, you will enjoy the new Playstation 4 without a care in the world. The Christmas tree in the corner of your home could catch on fire and you wouldn’t even notice. Instead, you would marvel as to how realistic the graphics are while you feel the heat from the explosions… Literally.

I really hope you took the extra steps to make sure that your calendar is clear for the next few days. Trust me, you’re not going to want to leave your seat.

Make sure you don’t spend too much time on any one game. Instead, take turns with each game and enjoy your next system. You’re going to have plenty of time to dedicate to each title.
