Xbox One ''Day One Edition'' Now Sold Out On Amazon

Following today's news that the Xbox One was no longer available for pre-order on Best Buy's website, online retail giant Amazon also removed the option to purchase the Day One Edition on their website. You can still purchase the standard Xbox One console, but there is no indication that it will arrive at launch. (Xbox One)

Ain't it funny that just after PS4's have been legitimately sold out at GameStop, that all of a sudden, Xbox One units are sold out at various outlets?

I call rubbish on all of this.

Grow up and stop bad mouthing other consoles. If you do not want one fine but stop being a troll. Your Mommy needs should have taught you better.
xHeavYx  +   386d ago
The thing with the "sold out" is that it means nothing, they could have been 20 pre orders or 1000 pre orders.
Checking the totals, PS4 is still #3 and Xbox One is #6, also the PS4 has other bundles in the top 100, unlike the Xbox One

Lets not forget that the WiiU also sold out before launch. This is all marketing. You won't really know until the console is actually released. I have a feeling that Xbox One won't sell as well as pre-orders suggests.

"Ain't it funny that just after PS4's have been legitimately sold out at GameStop, that all of a sudden, Xbox One units are sold out at various outlets?"

It could only mean 2 things according to some N4G insiders.

1. MS paid off retailers to create false shortages
2. MS execs bought out the remaining Day One supply themselves to create shortages.

LOL, N4G never disappoint.

@No_Limit:

it is called delusion, when one cannot fathom that someone else wants something they themselves do not.

It is usually associated with fangirls!

Console wars aside, they're both pieces of electronics that play video games - wouldn't it make sense that if one sells out that the other would likely sell out too.

Or maybe.. by some chance they actually sold out... Lol I don't get how you can think MS is up to something? It's a next gen console. It's gonna sell out lol

FanboyCrusher  +   386d ago
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a fanboy. Seriously, one product sells out and no other product after is allowed to? Be happy this is happening, the economy is crap, and the gaming market is smaller than ever. This next generation was supposed to have the slowest adoption rate in history, and it's looking to be doing very well. We should all be very happy the competition is alive and healthy, it only brings better games for us to play.

Fuk outta here.. It did sold out, stop being a fan boy... Both consoles sold out. For now.. I'm with Ps4 too though...

EVILDEAD360  +   385d ago
Interesting. It means that there were more PS4 preorder consoles allotted to amazon than Day One Xbox Ones.

Makes sense with the #3 to #6 ratio of best sellers of 2013 remaining the same after both sold out.

http://n4g.com/news/1307925...

Also interesting is in the UK the Xbox One Day one moved up 20 spots and is now #47

DRM reverse in effect.

This is still July.

Like expected both consoles are going to sell out completely in 2013.

Some one help me . When you preorder one and it says Jan 4th possible receive date is it a place holder or is that an actual date ill get it . idc about the day one edition to much ,but the standard editions says January 4th , man I don't want to wait to long for it .

never used amazon before .

It's just a place holder, my guess is that both consoles will be out sometime between mid October-end of November. Can't imagine them coming out any later.

@CrimsonStar

With the standard edition they can't promise that you will get the system on the day it first releases so they gave you a place holder date. Based on the supply of systems available you could get your system before Jan 4th or at a later date.

Once they get more information they are pretty good at giving updates. My standard edition ps4 got bumped up to a launch edition and my day one edition Xbox One date changed to November 27, 2013 within a week of me placing orders. Since you ordered on amazon you also won't have to worry about being charged for anything until your order ships.
greenlantern2814  +   386d ago
well not sure how many will be available at launch so either ps4 or xb1 being sold out means nothing.
if it is sold out and there are only 500 thousand units big deal if it is sold out and there are 3 million units than that is something.
this goes for both systems.
they are both gonna sell out at launch. the winner will be who ever put the most systems on selves.

The Xbox One is too bad to sell that well. Imagine with that $499 price tag...
torchic  +   386d ago
what? dude it was bound to sell out. it took much longer to sell out than PS4 but it did nonetheless.

if it makes you feel any better, Xbox One will unlikely sell at PS4 levels after the launch hysteria ends, based on the pricing alone.

Now waits for...

as they only have 15 to sell.
Death  +   386d ago
What would happen if they only allocated what they could deliver? There is a good chance Sony is locking up gamers money with no intention to deliver on launch day or even before years end.
fattyuk  +   386d ago
Dunno what it's like where you live but in the UK they don't take any money until your item has been shipped.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   386d ago
Lol finally,it's been a month since the X1 went on sale for preorder, the fact that it took this long to sellout with a more limited supply as opposed to the PS4 says alot.
Death  +   386d ago
I was hoping someone had knowledge of actual supply for both consoles. Do us all a solid and tell us how many units are currently available for pre-order and how many are available for the holidays. It'll be nice to finally put this bs to rest. Some people are just making stuff up without having actual numbers or factual info to base their opinions on.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   386d ago
http://electronictheatre.co...
It's really not that hard to put two and two together. With multiple stores reporting limited supply for the Xbox one as opposed to Sony telling Gamestop to "open the floodgates". It's not that hard to figure out unless
A) You lack elementary problem solving skills
Or
B) You're in denial
I'm guessing you fall within one of these categories?
Sitdown  +   386d ago
Do you have the numbers to define "limited"... cause hotter many limited edition games are still available years later and on the other side, you temporarily open the flood gates... again no numbers. So Atty the end of the day, you can use your logic... but you still have no concrete evidence.
coopman300  +   385d ago
Just because sony said open the flood gates doesnt mean theyll be able to deliver all these units on day one.
warewolfSS  +   386d ago
Yeah I'm glad someone has the numbers..

I have both the PS4 and Xbox One Day 1 console pre-ordered from amazon... placed the orders right after the E3 announcements.... I know most people will disagree with me, but I am looking forward to the Xbox One more... Kinect 2.0 might be a game changer... I actually like the kinect...

Arturo84  +   386d ago
With all the precautions you could take how are you gonna feel if the kinect breaks and no matter how many controllers remotes tablets smartphones you have your box has become unplayable because the console is now dependant on a accesory plopping 100 bucks plus each time wouldn't be fun also ms hasn't specified if the kinect will be initially available in stores I've been having the worry if atleast initially ms only allows for the kinect to be sent in for repairs imagine waiting a month to play becuz of the kinect btw not bashing your choices just been wondering if people care about that situation emerging

First fuck the grammar police wannabe and second what cord has cost you over 100 bucks also what we can consider typical setups don't place cords in a exposed manner so it shouldn't be in danger how the kinect could and third let's say the drive did go down you still have the digital option until repairs can be made.
BattleTorn  +   386d ago
Cool video. I don't like Kinect, even more after owning one, but that there really demonstrated how a younger generation may find the device second-nature. (Like us with controllers) The game seems rather responsive of the kids movements. (Limited input, mind you)

I have nothing againt sony but yall drones are the worst
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   386d ago
Why are people so stupid? It doesn't matter if one is sold out and the other one isn't, it matters on allocation of units.

For example because of the x1 180, and over hearing problems they probably have a much smaller allocation of units compared to how Sony is already sending out finished dev kits so they most likely have a lot more.
kostchtchie_  +   386d ago
don't see why people are surprised, the xbox360 with its RROD and pay to play online bullshit sold millions, nothing new that same retards that bought that would continue to support a bullshit company, only thing i would have liked to see if these sales still happened if there DRM and other system issues were in place

people please your heads, if these companies gave limitless consoles to the retailers, it just would not sell, they give a certain amount, which is called the first wave, after the first wave the companies get a response from the media and consumer public, they then either ship more to retailers or hold back which is called supply and demand. micro could have just ten preorders for each retailer, they are building demand for the product,

they did the same thing with the 360, keeps people wanting it. every company does it, some better then others.
