Good things come to those that wait – and we reckon that we’ve been especially patient this year. It seems like a century ago when Sony teased its PlayStation Meeting press conference at the tail-end of January, but with several months of drama between now and then – alongside thousands of news articles, features, and previews – the PlayStation 4 is right around the corner in North America.

While we’re scurrying around the office making final plans and preparations, though, there’s a good chance that you’ll be making some arrangements of your own. As a consequence, we figured now was a perfect opportunity to poll you on your release day plans. Are you attending a midnight launch? Will you be waiting at home for a delivery? Have you booked time off work?

Take a moment to fill out the embedded quiz, and then jump into the comments section to flesh out your next generation itinerary. We want to know what time you’re visiting your local store, what snacks you’ll be bringing along for the ride, and if you’re planning to meet up with friends in order to pick up your brand new machines together.

Oh, and if you’re from Europe, feel free to participate, too. Given the later launch date, we appreciate that your plans may not be quite as concrete just yet, but we’re sure that you’ll have some preparations in place. Don’t be shy – and join in the discussion below.
