DailyGame: "After an initial flurry of Xbox One pre-orders that pushed Amazon.com to be sold out, the online retailer has a new batch of Xbox One hardware available for pre-order now, including the special Xbox One Day One Edition."
So what? Getting outsold big time. Even the standard edition xbone is out the top 20 on amazon (US) while PS4 is #1 (launch) and #3 (standard).
It's interesting that they suddenly got a new allotment and re-opened the pre-orders, though. Do you suppose the "sold out" announcement earlier in the week was a marketing tactic by MS?
Yup. The launch PS4 while #1 on amazon (USA) is sold out. Do you hear Sony beating their chest? And the xbox launch one is available but still not enough to take the PS4 out of #1..lol. But this type of thing is happening everywhere. The rumors are 4:1 at retailers like gamestop. ;p
Probably many cancelled their Xbone preorder after seeing PS4's e3 presser
so why is it always about who's in first with you people -_- seriously grow up
At this point, I don't care about the feelings of M$ or their fans. Frankly, I just don't give a damn. ;p
then stop coming to every single article about xbox one -_- period
cant wait for the launch achievement! heh heh heh
Yeah, the launch Achievement cracked me up. The sad part, though, is that you just KNOW there are going to be people who buy it just for the exclusive Achievement. :-)
back my question is why. i mean 17,000 to 989 just let it die like the kin and kin mobile that ms said was going to revolutionise the mobile world. edit wait a minute that is the same catchphrase they used with the one revolutionise the gaming world
day one edition mmm does that mean they cancel their pre orders? lol
Nice to see people see the potential and not influenced by the media.At the end of the day dont tell someone how to spend their own hard working money on something.
You know what they say about fools and money?
Potential is one thing, getting there is another. Microsoft could have easily stuck with current gen tactics and slowly bought in DRM and the used games strategy through the life of the cycle, it would have only been a firmware update. They could have even give it a couple of years then trial run it to get people used to it but no then went full steam a head and forced these changes. Plus there are many so called gamers who are ignoring Microsoft's arrogance through this entire situation and their lack of professionalism in answering simple questions.(don't like always on, stick with 360, WTF attitude is that to your fanbase) There is also a bit of irony in your comment because in a way Microsoft are forcing you how to spend your hard working money, when it comes to the disc games you purchase, they are limiting your options, they are saying what you can and can't do. You can be a supporter of something which is a good thing but to be blind to where the future of that something is going is another thing. You see potential in the Xbox one, I to see potential, the potential for Microsoft to have control on how I play my games, that is something I want to decide for myself, it's called freedom of choice and it's the one thing we should never give up the right to.
of the day don't tell someone how to spend their own hard working money on something"... are you serious? This is exactly what Microsoft is telling their consumers. Hey you need to go through all these hoops to play your games. You may only give your game to your friend and you can never get it back. You can only trade it in at Gamestop and Best Buy. You can ONLY go up to 24hrs without checking in online or gaming (single player included) will cease to function. IF you're at a friend's house then you have to check in every hour.
They must have just got the OK from the NSA to proceed?
It has been available for awhile now. I check yesterday and it was still there. People that have already pre-ordered where moved to that list. So that tells me that people are pre-ordering then canceling the pre-order.
they put it back up yesterday bc my friend preordered it,im guessing people are cancelling the standard edition to pre-order the day1 edition.
You are put into a list when you pre-order from the email that I got from Amazon. If they get more stock or pre-orders are canceled the next in line moves to the day 1 edition. That is just a guess though they said you don't need to re-preorder they system
I think several people canceled.
yeah i bet tons canceled their preorders when they found out the bad news and thats why more preorders are available. everyon should cancel their preorder and not buy the xbox one so microsoft will be forced to change there policy and get rid of drm and allow used games etc. its the logical thing to do. dont buy the xbox one and make ms change there minds. people need to be stronger and do the right thing these days.
Fanboy alert lmao
its th truth though and people need to get out of denial and fight this battle. you cant run forever.
I really really want but the £429 is just to much. If they drop it to £349 I will buy in an instant. Or at least £399 with 12 months free live and a top game.

Funny how people are on N4G 24 hours a day...and will make that once a day check seem like the worst thing ever. Secondly...if you're actually a gamer...who cares? Face it...we live in an Anti-Consumer world where cell phones are manufactured in Asia for less than 50$ and sold to you at ridiculous prices unless you renew a 2 year contract paying over 100$ a month for data usage with main cell phone providers...yet they whore out their network to government and other prepaid phone services for $40 a month. I'm a gamer and I don't resell my shit and have internet or a phone available at all times for the past 15 years. I'm on a laptop that I can fear is watching me at all times...oh and this front facing camera on my phone...it surely is watching me too at all times since it being there is such a reason to fear such things. Xbox One has a stellar console exclusive line up and despite how much you hear the word jumping ship on the interwebs will still have the most robust and active online community with a dedication to improve it every passing year. So there you have it...I'm no dumb consumer. I just like games and have put up with all kinds of unwanted changes over these past few gaming generations so nothing is shocking.
hahaha all those people that had pre ordered the X-BONE cancelled and preordered the PS4
I remembered when I bought my ps3 when it released back in 2006. I end up playing motorstorm and resistance for VERY LONG TIME So now, If im going to buy the ps or the xbox. Im going to wait at least one year so there is something that I can play! Seriously guys no rush
