Xbox One Pre-Orders Rising at Amazon But Still Not Sold Out

TheHDRoom: "Microsoft's Xbox One Day One edition console has been a fixture on Amazon's video game bestsellers chart since it first became available. Even as we approach a month's distance from when Amazon first began accepting pre-orders, the Day One edition has yet to sell out. "

By how fast Microsoft changes its Policy, its a good thing to wait until things get better.It'll get Cheaper, can play without kinect and perhaps backward compatibility.

SpideySpeakz1086d ago

Dream on. No way BC is being implemented. We went over this a hundred times already.

Muffins12231085d ago

Backward compatibility might be possible....THROUGH THE POWER OF DE CLOUD.

Gimmemorebubblez1085d ago

@muff

Sony and Onive hold patents to streaming full video games.

LightningMokey1085d ago

I'm pretty sure that was Sarcasm @Gimmemorebubblez

abzdine1085d ago (Edited 1085d ago )

DRM will come back when enough pigeons have bought a X1 but not BC, you have my word for it! Disagree if you like, we'll see who's gonna laugh in the end

WarThunder1085d ago

Well at least they are in the top 10 lol
This vid is so true and funny

I wonder how many times the Xbox One has been restocked...I remember it being sold out just after the initial reveal..

abzdine1085d ago

dont be fooled by those sold out news, MS promised only very few machines per shop

kewlkat0071085d ago (Edited 1085d ago )

hmm..Do you have a number per shop?

I'm just saying, we don't know unless you do..

devwan1085d ago

Judging by the 2013 best sellers in video games so far this year, not much. xbox day 1 is stillin number six behind the ps4 that sold out in 24 hours at number three.

Two other ps4 SKUs are slowly creeping into the top 100 (currently in the 80s).

HammadTheBeast1085d ago

It's never sold out. The PS4 however did sell out even after being restocked twice.

@Need Play without Kinect is definitely out of the question.

I'd rather have Kinect integrated just so MS won't shove Kinect games down my throat because they have to "cater to that fanbase."

MS can afford to release 2 or 3 Kinect casuals instead of 6 or 7 Kinect casuals like they have in the past. MS will be able to focus on Core games more and release casual game for whoever wants it. The Kinect and hardcore fanbase are no longer split since everyone will have Kinect.

MS won't have to say Buy, Kinect! Buy!, Buy!, Buy! And Buy Disney's Fantasia! And completely alienate the core gamers in the process.

nukeitall1085d ago

There might be a few good surprises with Kinect One for core games now that it is in ever box!

greenlantern28141085d ago

making a system BC adds to the price of development so if they where to add that in the price would go up.
think the first ps3 was BC and thats the first thing they got ride of to lower the price of development so they could lower the price of the system.

n4rc1085d ago

Or if you really care to play 360 games... Wait for it... Play them on the damn 360!! Lol

Don't know why anyone would want to.. I completely abandon a console when a new generation releases.

greenlantern28141085d ago

who ever disagreed with my statement is an idiot it is the complete truth and the reason why neither system is BC

ala_7671085d ago

At this time we can no longer expect a price cut for Xbox One... Already we can safely say Microsoft is working tirelessly to reprogram the Xbox one Console about reversing DRM bla bla bla

uncharted561085d ago

I have said time and time again but people don't listen. MS will not drop kinect. They have made the xbox one around kinect and its functionality. Im not saying its impossible but hardware changes are a lot more difficult to change then software. Its been designed to use kinect to detect people in the room and function. They wont just take all the money they have invested in kinect and xb1 which are supposed to go hand in hand and throw it away. One of their pillars for their system is the all in one hub feature and accessibility. Now do I like Kinect? NO, I dont want it. I am getting the PS4 and will pick an xbox one before I leave for university. As for backwards compatibility I dont know if they can do it or not maybe they will do something like Sony and Onlive are doing which imo will not work, because if anyone has tried onlive they will know. As for price cut its definitely coming once the console releases but they might just do it prior to release. But they will again get backlash from people saying that they dont have faith in their own console.

Folks are starting to look past the price and see all the features that the console offers versus the competition. A few weeks ago the xbox one pre orders were outselling the competition 2-1 at Gamestop.

Skips1086d ago (Edited 1086d ago )

"Folks are starting to look past the price and see all the features that the console offers versus the competition."

PS4 Day One sold out in LESS THAN 24 HOURS after it went up....
Xbone Day One hasn't sold out, and it's been WEEKS since it went up....

So, I'm not too sure about that...

"Xbox One Pre-Orders Rising"

http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...

^ Been in the same spot ever since they've been up. Not even the surge after the DRM patch announcement did much to bump it up. The rise probably wasn't much if that's the case. lol

"A few weeks ago the xbox one pre orders were outselling the competition 2-1 at Gamestop."

There been any reports of a change?

FrigidDARKNESS1086d ago

Thre is no doubt about it the ps4 pre-orders sold out day one since MS DRM scared folks away. Now the Is no DRM on the console pre orders are picking up quickly.

Skips1086d ago (Edited 1086d ago )

"Now the Is no DRM on the console pre orders are picking up quickly."

http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...

^ As I've said, been in the same spot for WEEKS. Even after the DRM change.

Should've bumped it up at least ONE spot if the DRM change was any or at all significant considering it's been more than 2 weeks since then...

So yea, not too sure about that. The rise probably wasn't much...

Gasian1086d ago (Edited 1086d ago )

They're both going to sell out but it is obvious that the PS4 will outsell the Xbone at launch.

nukeitall1085d ago

PS4 selling out within hours could be just small allotment. The bestseller list rank this relative and is a better gauge.

The bestseller list is likely exponential so the Xbox One is doing really well. We don't know how PS4 is really doing considering it as multiple SKUs.

Nedless to say, the war hasn't even started yet really so it is too early to say.

Muffins12231085d ago

If i looked at the features then its still ps4,no kinect,better camera,more games,better hardware....your the only one on n4g who has less than 5 bubbles lol

theWB271085d ago

PS4 is better because it doesn't have a camera and it's also better because its camera is better?

Is it appropriate to invalidate your comment for that clusterf!#@ of reasoning?

joefrost001085d ago

Better camera
More games lol
Did you even watch e3
I dont care about what they have promised
What has been announced the more games might be a little of a strectch

BLKxSEPTEMBER1084d ago

Are you high or just stupid?

avengers19781085d ago

At my area GameStop PS4 is beating XB1 according to the people that work there.
See with no proof then anyone can say something like that

cyguration1085d ago (Edited 1085d ago )

"all the features"?

Please. This is still an overpriced PC with none of the benefits. You can't mod your games, you don't get word processing, video editing or graphic design tools and you're trapped within a closed system that is made up of mostly a lot of multiplatform titles save for whatever first-party games Microsoft has in store outside of Halo.

People have to be completely blind to see a system with lower specs than the PS4, a lacking first-party line-up unlike the Wii U, and none of the modding, open-source benefits of a PC as pre-order worthy.

Features alone, even ignoring the past DRM debacle, the Xbox One is kind of a failure. Everything you have to pay for you can do for free on PC.

NeoTribe1084d ago

Lol your making things up man. Ps4 preorders are killing x1 at gamestop. Microsoft still has day one bundles on amazon lol. There losing the preorder race pathetically. My buddy is a gamestop manager, he also confirms ps4s dominance. Its funny how all the xbot trolls can never produce any factual proof of anything they say.

BLKxSEPTEMBER1084d ago

Gamestop also still has day 1 ps4 pre orders. I'm looking at it right now

mochachino1086d ago

I'm surprised X180 is doing this well given what PS4 and PSN Plus is offering and at a better price.

Perhaps unrelated but how big are games this gen? If MS or Sony doesn't allow you to upgrade hardrives the systems could conceivably only hold a maximum 16 games before your stuck with uninstalls.

I buy about 8 - 10 games a year so I hopy Sony allows you to throw in a standard HD again. Terabytes are cheap these days.

ElementX1086d ago

8-10? That's it? Since I built my PC in November I've purchased over 300 Steam games. I did buy The Last of Us but I haven't finished it yet I'm hooked on my PC. Before I built my PC I would buy a ton of games every year for both the 360 and PS3.

Nitrowolf21086d ago (Edited 1086d ago )

What does you having a PC and him buying that many games have anything to do with, well anything?

We get it, Steam has awesome sales.

I own a PC, capable of running any game and guess what? Despite the steam sale I've only bought 4-6 games for my PC this year. Just about the same I bought for my PS3 this year to. What difference does this make though? He wa sjust wishing that Sony anbd MS allows HDD upgrades with standard HDD

ElementX1086d ago

If he only buys that many he probably won't have to upgrade for a while.

matrixman921085d ago

casuals dont care....its called an xbox, gets CoD stuff first, and plays Halo...thats enough for them

XisThatKid1085d ago

Confirmed that you can replace the HDD on PS4 and confirmed that X1 game installs are mandatory
Unconfirmed PS4 mandatory install (I'm sure it will)
Unconfirmed but commented on that X1 will not have swapable HDDs

unapersson1085d ago

The comments Sony made about streaming zlib compressed content from the disk suggests they'll still be pulling in data from the disk. And this time the drive will be faster as well.

It's only really Microsoft who were forced down the full install route by their DRM intentions. I doubt if that's so easy to undo.

JoeReno1085d ago

Who said Sony wont allow you to upgrade your harddrive? Im pretty sure this has been know for some time now not to be the case.

fadeawayjae1086d ago

The GameStop I went too only had preorders for Xbox One - 10 to Ps4 - 50.

Garethvk1086d ago

Would not shock me if it is Balmer and the Microsoft guys buying them. I do not trust them to not add DRM and such down the road when people already have the system.
