in all honesty, i don't think you'll get it because it's going to be expensive as hell, and sold out everywhere.

I don't doubt that it will be prohibitively expensive, but it's for that reason that I doubt it will be sold out anywhere like Nintendo's handhelds. Nintendo has also taken the casual market angle for their past few systems which greatly contributed to the lack of supply. Since Sony is marketing the NGP to the standard gaming audience which is much smaller, I don't think we'll have any problems picking up an NGP without a pre-order.
Also, Nintendo is getting an absolutely massive head start on Sony in this handheld generation. Many families will have already bought a 3DS for their kids once the NGP hits, leaving the market mostly to people that didn't plan on buying a 3DS in the first place, and people who can afford to buy two non-subsidized handhelds. We're not talking about phones here - you won't be seeing this for $200 with a 2-year agreement or some such.
