Microsoft are no longer guaranteeing Day One editions of the Xbox One for new pre-orders
AMAZON UK are no longer offering the Day One edition either; we've updated our post with this information.
It's no biggie if you miss out on the Day One edition. I have it pre-ordered but its just a novelty really.
Me too, but I'm a sucker for novelties
The PS4 wasn't guaranteed after 2 weeks of it's market pre-launch.
"The PS4 wasn't guaranteed after 2 weeks of it's market pre-launch." Now this guys is a straight out lie. Phony, bogus, fugazie, whatever. I wont bother asking you for a link because you cant provide something that doesnt exist. Funny to see how good Xbox news get the Sony fanboys itching all over the place :)
http://www.computerandvideo... August 7, but only in UK, I think this is what he is talking about. And I'm pretty sure PS4 is shipping more consoles than Xbox One. EDIT: This article is also talking about UK.
@ultimatemaster really no one said anything about playshit4 and yet here you're talking about it ... GET A LIFE SUCKER
@ LaChance All you can do is keep denying.. I pre-ordered the PS4 the next day after E3 and I wasn't able to get the day-1 edition until they resent me an email saying that I will get one. So there was already supply issues on the first day for PS4. The demand for PS4 is impressive while the demand for X1 is lackluster. It took y'all this long for it to sellout..
Just stating the obvious. ;) Look at amazon around the world, show me one place the Xbox One is in the lead, I'll wait...
Make that 1 weeks after E3, the launch edition of the PS4 wasn't available for pre-orders on amazon.com.
This is a marketing catastrophe. What about the people who already pre ordered a day 1 edition? I feel sad for them. I guess taking off kinect as a requirement must've caused this. Seriously there is an achievement only unlockable on day one for the Xbox. And you know how much they care about achievements right?
this news is old
got my Day one X1!!!
N4G, using the Disagree button as a Dislike button since at least 2007. Have an "upvote".
Congrats, hope you enjoy it :)
Are people really down-voting you just because you're getting a different product than they are? So childish.
So, are we not allowed to use the disagree? The whole point of the disagree button is to express that you... disagree (crazy, I know it). Obviously those people don't like what he said.
Let me test. I preordered a PS4 ( really did ) Let it begin !
@KonsoruMasuta Very true. However, why would you disagree in the first place? Why would you even care what some RANDOM person on the internet is doing with THEIR money?
some really childish people here lol mostly sony little kids lol
I think they're disagreeing because you don't have your day one X1. It's not out yet.
No dude, you know they're disagreeing because they are butturt Sony fanboys. Thats why.
Fully aware. I just thought I'd throw a joke out there...
@SuperLupe Yes because that is the only reason why people would disagree with someone getting an Xbox One. They must be Sony fanboys! /s It has nothing to do with how people felt and continue to feel with all of the unpopular original policies Microsoft had for the Xbox One. The least of which included DRM, check-ins every 24 hours, mandatory Kinect, lack of support for indie games and used games, and price point. Microsoft personnel's conflicting interviews and arrogant statements didn't help much either. Despite all of that, Microsoft ended those original policies, but people aren't wrong for still feeling sore about them. Microsoft still have a long way to go to regain their consumers. That is without question.
I'm not getting the Day-one edition because I don't like the text on the controller...
I'm not either, and I don't either, but...I feel like I'm missing something if I don't have it. I don't know how to explain it. I'll get over it though. The prices for it on eBay would probably be like $100.
Day 2 edition confirmed /S
It took that long? I'm serious, I thought it sold out at most stores. Anyway, sucks for people who didn't preorder. They're bound to know that these things sell out at launch.
Got mine reserved so I'm ready to game on day one. Looking forward to gamescom to hear the release dates.
Got mine preordered 2 weeks after E3, glad I did now.
I ordered a D1 edition from the online microsoft store quite some time ago.. when i check my order history i see this: "No orders were found If you made a purchase before June 27, 2012, you may not be seeing your order history or product keys due to recent site changes." HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS ISSUE? i cant find much info on the net... I called and they assured me my order is still there.. but if it was for some reason cancelled, i suppose i just wont bother getting one.. Im getting ps4 as well anyway, so either way ill be gaming.. but if ms somehow screws me out of my Day One edition, they can consider my business gone forever lol.
Kryptonite-I'd keep up on that. I just checked mine and it still says "in process" as it's always said. I preordered mine June 16 via my 360 dashboard
Love your username. Breaking Bad is the greatest show of all time imo.. last nights episode was great.. lol anyway.. i just called ms store support again after posting that.. They assured me its still there.. they tell me the status is processing or whatever, and even sent me another confirmation e-mail with my order number and everything.. so i suppose it should be fine. but i still can't help but be paranoid. i read online about ms store cancelling peoples pre-orders when they couldnt keep up with the demand. this was for another product entirely, but is still unsettling. (im in Canada btw.. if that makes any difference)
If I was getting one I would prefer to not get a Day One edition. I don't like how it's got 'Day One 2013' stamped on the controller. It'll look so out of date in 2014 and onwards. My advice is if you want one pre-order now.
The price for those Day 1 controllers will be much higher on ebay tho
One things for sure, there definitely weren't any production delays.
I don't think Best Buy had the preorder option for the Day One when I did it. I just want the console on launch day. I don't mind the sticker or achievement it comes with.
Preordered mine the moment I got home after seeing the Titanfall reveal. Sad that I'll have to wait a while for that but I'll have Dead Rising 3 and Battlefield 4 to keep me company until then.
Hahaha! The moment I saw the transition from soldier to Titan my jaw dropped. Hour later, I was at GameStop with my $100 lol. Link describing what aspect of the gameplay I'm referring to. 2:45 mark http://www.youtube.com/watc...
And even now, I have yet to see one PS4 title that packed a punch like Titanfall did. I will eventually get a PS4 but only when they show me something worth getting excited over. I simply find it funny that people are trashing the Xbox One left and right, yet out of both systems they're the only ones showing games worth getting excited over. And before anyone mentions Killzone, pretty graphics do not make a good game, just look at KZ2 and 3.
I'm going to be on the PS4. I can't afford supporting multiple next gen systems. With 3 daughters also gaming I have to go with the requests of my family or be brow beaten to death. I'm sharing this because I have to get the most bang for my bucks and with the holiday season quickly approaching every dollar counts. With so many free to play titles at launch, Sony is helping alleviate my impending financial woes without having to deal with this so called " shortage of consoles " I truly believe MS is creating this shortage to drive sales of it's already flagging next gen console. This is a desperate attempt on their part to create interest. Piss on Microsoft. I'm not falling for it.
You can only afford to support one next gen console? That's strange, because in your other comment you said had GameStop allowed multiple pre-orders per household, you would have purchased a PS4 for each of your daughters, in addition to your own. Sounds like you have a lot more disposable income. ;)
Lol owned. I bet not only he doasnt have any kids but on top of that he is a kid himself.
Yes, one console brand this generation Yodacracker. They can share the games. At $100 less per system, it adds up. I can't afford supporting nintendo and microsoft and their library of games too. If you had daughters you'd understand that they are finicky creatures and playing together doesn't always pan out but they can always go to separate rooms and play games. " I sometimes prefer that they do. Less arguing that way. " As for the choice of console, that was their decision and they unanimously chose the PS4. I can only get one at launch, but will have to et 3 more when they are available. The free to play titles will help to lower the finacial burden as they all can have a copy of those games without costing me a penny. Does this help clarify my statements?
@LaChance, I'm pretty sure your some little kid. Your spelling and vocabulary reflect this statement as well. As for KILLNSFUN, though his story does sound somewhat bizarre, I highly doubt he is a small child unlike yourself.
Piss on Microsoft? Kiss your daughters with that filthy mouth? Preordered both the xbox1 and ps4, it's gonna be a great winter
I don't think i'm going to be leaving my house much this holiday to be honest.
I saw this fellow say that if he could, he would spend a whopping $1600 dollars on FOUR Playstation 4s for himself and his 3 daughters. Yet somehow, magically, mysteriously, conveniently ... he can't afford a PS4 and an XB1. Bravo sir. You've managed to trip yourself up with your own web of stupidity.
Well do some math sir. All 3 of his daughters require 1 PS4 ($400 each), yes? So that is $1200 right there. Now he can either buy himself a Xbox One ($500)spend $1700 and require a separate monthly subscription, or get another PS4 spend only $1600 and share with his daughters PS+. So it would appear you are the one who tripped their self up.
PS4 has sold out even game bundles month ago it takes xbone this long man is M$ in the trouble .xbone is inferior to the PS4 and anybody with half a brain can see that .xbone 180 has inferior hardware specs compare to PS4 Far superior hardware .50% more powerful graphicly higher bandwidth PS4 Almost has doubled the bandwidth of xbone 180 that means higher frame rates and high resolution than xbone.
I don't even know what your trying saying, this is just one long run on sentence.
Well in all honesty the 3DS is weak compared to Vita however I play it more often. My Vita collects dust. It's about the games.
Inferior? So does that mean PS4 has inferior specs to Wii U? Wii U : Bluetooth 4.0 PS4: Bluetooth 2.1 How about XB1 Wi-Fi Direct compared to PS4 Bluetooth 2.1? How about Microsoft's Tiled Resourcing? http://www.youtube.com/watc... All I ever hear is specs this, specs that. I'm certain your inferior television set will be used for playing your PS4 as well right? Or let me guess, since everything is about specs you have a 4K Television set in your bedroom?
Goldfinger** im referring to the PS4 superior GPU and simpler better and faster memory system of the PS4 is far superior to the xbone one 80. The PS4 has a large pools of fast RAM for game development. In fact in the future for PC will also uses large pools of shared unified memory. I love XBOTS Only they can make a disadvantage looks like an advantage. Example kinect ? DIRECT X 11.2(ONLY on xbone) is not hey advantage its a disadvantage The ps4's opengl based API like PS2's API & PS3's libGCM offers much more low level access to the hardware without the need to go through nearly as many abstraction layers as DirectX does. This lets developers to take advantage of the performance benefits it offers over DirextX. do not offer much low level access to hardware. It has to go through numerous abstraction layers and isn't that efficient. Back in 2011 AMD's chef was complaining how much DirectX holds back pc performance. [source] http://www.tomshardware.com... http://www.bit-tech.net/har... numerous 3rd party Xbox360 developers have talked about how the custom DirectX for Xbox holds back performance. [source] http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... The ps4's opengl based API like PS2's API & PS3's libGCM offers much more low level access to the hardware without the need to go through nearly as many abstraction layers as DirectX does. Sony is also offering a highlevel wrapper giving developers easier tools to work with [source] http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... PS4 also uses Direct X 11.
Evilsnuggle Great informative response, although one statement you mentioned is invalid. You said ... "I love XBOTS only they can make a disadvantage look like an advantage" Well I'm not an XBOT, nor a SONY DRONE, nor a Nintendo fanboy. I am a gamer, who shares no allegiance to any company for that matter. Second, I have both PS4 and XB1 day one consoles pre ordered. As I'm typing this response, it's 3:00am my time and I'm sitting here playing Splinter Cell Blacklist, that I just picked up from GameStop 3 hrs ago. Anyhow, back to this game.
If you want to learn anything on the ps4 just come to the comments section on an X0 article. Worse still yesterday a knock on the door where at first i thought were mormons with pamphlets, turned out it was two 16 y/o's with ps4 pamphlets and sony tattooed on their upper lips. They spoke in unison and tried to convert me. They rode off on low-rider bicycles.
This probably has little to do with actual demand, and more to do with M$ just not shipping enough. I'm just assuming this because Gamestop had the same issues.
So, I've never really understood this. How do you even get the day one edition? I preordered an xbox one a while back before i even knew there was a day one edition. Is it just if for the first x number of Xbox's?
