Pre-orders never stopped on Amazon.

"Major Nelson, who Tweeted that both Amazon and the Microsoft Store are offering reservations on the Day One Edition of the Xbox One... Today’s breaking news has lead Microsoft to allow new buyers to throw money down."

This means that Microsoft were limiting the amount of Xbox One Day 1 consoles available so that they could say they have all been sold out. When they reversed their decision on DRM they have seen an increase in demand so will now make more Day 1 models available.

They want to make a lot of sales but it's also important to be able to say they have sold out of Day 1 consoles.

Well, to make sure i made a full deposit on my Bol.com preorder.
Dont wanna miss out on that 1st day edition.

OlgerO1639d ago

I preorderd my PS4 only a week after its februari reveal on bol.com, so I better get it at launch.

Yeah X1 preorders never stop on Amazon its been #1 for a couple of days, and some gamestops stopped taking preorders because than ran out of allocations.

Isnt that because they took down the ps4 launch day edition? or maybe the PS4 launch edition is no longer available due to high demand.

Gran Touring1639d ago

@Minato yeah the PS4 launch day edition ran out within a few days. If you were lucky enough, first orders for the standard edition (at least on amazon) were upgraded to day-one. At this point I don't know if you can preorder an "at launch" PS4 without it being in a bundle

Minato-Namikaze - They took their launch PS4 and bundled them with all the launch games. The only way you can get one now is to buy a game with it.

what does this have to do with the article you are posting in. Oh wait nothing, its just another troll

lucidity1639d ago

This is tied to product availability, not to policy.
