GameStop Has Re-Opened Pre-Orders for Xbox One Day One Edition

Xbox One's pre-order SKU has now been re-opened at GameStop, following its temporary removal.

The story is too old to be commented.

I wonder why it was removed. Common sense suggests it was a reaction to the DRM policies, and that the reduction of GameStop support prompted Microsoft's reversal, but there's nothing that really confirms that suspicion...

it could be they stopped taking preorders at the request of MS because of the impending change in policy.

They would have to notify retailers of a change in the system that would affect its potential sales. GS being one of the largest that pushes preorders on just about everything would be affected.

Its all speculation really. Only GS higher ups and MS know for certain but now its a moot point as preorders are flowing again.

Gamestop told me they only got like 30 Xbox One pre orders available where PS4 had like 140. That was a few days ago when I ask.

They have been open all the time on Amazon... I wonder why Gamestop didn't keep going?

No used games on Xboxone....GameStop thrives on used sales, no used games = no GameStop. Wishful thinking but GameStop probably begged, pleaded and bribe them to withdraw the drm policy. GameStop are selfish greedy conartist.

Even if Gamestop Begged why should M$ care to give them money, Sony and Consumers both of those together MADE M$ retract. I think maybe that's why they decided to not sell their console mmm.

Your better off getting a PS4 by far, for the same price as the xbone you get 1 game and 1 year of PS+.
