That is great for those that have not picked one up yet. I remember the fiasco of the 360 launch with people reserving consoles only to find that they had been given to the first people to walk through the door on day one.

I waited 12 hours for my 360. MS said they were going to make sure that they bumped up production to make sure their were lost of units available. Good play MS.

It's all sold out here in the UK. Amazon fudged up my delivery and I've been calling everywhere to try and get a hold of one, all sold out.

That sucks. Well I am in the other part of the Commonwealth in Atlantic Canada and there were still five left at the Walmart at 8am (they were not open at midnight). Then again there were people behind me.

I don't get to play with mine yet anyways as it is a Christmas present for my kids (don't tell anyone it is for me too).

I wish you luck.

May be Amazon is but high street you can pretty much walk in and buy one where I live.

Cobberwebb914d ago

Popped into Game after work and they don't even have a demo unit. I just wanted to see what the controller was like. I'll have no hope next week with the PS4.

Here in the US, San Diego area I can find at least 7 Targets within 30 min of me that have them in stock...

Cant be what they were thinking when they launched it. guess the demand just isn't there even on their home territory.

it's also not as desirable as the PS4. I'm sure I'll get downvoted, but if the PS4 wasn't released last week, the Xbox One would be sold out.

Visiblemarc914d ago

The question is about distribution though. I know a lot of places only received their preorder units. So there may be extras out there, but where? I guess demand will dictate whether or not it matters, I fully expect ms to implement artificial shortages though, but we'll see.

I think my local Walmart was one of those, I was there this morning and there wasn't even an XB1 section in their games area.

Best buy had about a dozen still sitting there though.

If I lived in Minnesota, I wouldn't be attending any midnight launches this time of year. Way to cold for that.

Jahbu914d ago

LOL! I live there too...and I was SO pissed when it started to snow as I was leaving out. Luckly I was still able to get a system. Jamaicans don't do well in the cold lol!

MasterofMagnetism914d ago

So true, I live in Minnesota and it is cold as heck right now and going to be even colder this weekend. Still saw some people waiting in line for their Xbox One at Best Buy last night.

InTheLab914d ago

I live in MN and it wasn't that bad, although Best Buy did lest us in to walk around the store while we waited for our PS4's.

I'm sure it was the same for the X1.

It's the primary reason why I shot there for day 1 things instead of Gamestop with their tiny stores...

Also, it was like 15 degrees last night so those that wanted an X1 better have been smart enough to shop Best Buy...

I work at Gamestop and last night we had 3 available for the midnight launch.

I thought that was nuts, especially since we had 1 remaining by the end of the morning.

mhunterjr914d ago

Awesome, there's a chance that non preorderers will be able to grab one..
