If you’re late to the Xbox One party but you still want a Day One edition, you may want to hurry, because apparently the console is still available at British retailer Game.
Well this is shocking, I know it's not doing as well as PS4 here in the UK but you'd think they'd have burned through the day one stock by now. I blame the price disparity, how can a $500 console sell for more than the PS3 did at launch here? The value just isn't there for UK gamers yet, well personally speaking at least.
most of the apps and system core functionality are geared towards the Americans and i have to pay more than them..... HELL NOOOOOO
Yeah there's that too, MS are asking us to pay comparatively more than their US customers but get less features in return. Until they can get to a reasonable price point that reflects a true value of the system they will continue to throw away this market.
Well not only in Europe, in the United States they are still plenty of day 1 edition available!
Post links. Plenty of them.
Go to Wal Mart?
There are launch editions left. So what? Does that mean the XB1 has stopped selling? Of course it doesn't. If they have some day1 machines and people want one, they can buy it. Or they can choose to pick up a regular system. I don't understand where you're coming from dude.
What part has you confused? The Xb1 isn't selling as much as it should be in the UK but even so you'd think people would have bought all the day one editions by now. It's a little shocking to me is all, especially considering that it looks like MS are handing over the UK market to Sony, which has been an Xbox stronghold this past gen.
And? Do you want them to take them out back and burn them? I mean theirs a launch edition 360 sitting in my local Gamestop, but we're not sitting here making articles about that to draw conclusions that it isn't selling well.
Launch Edition 360? Yeah,......um ok.
Maybe he's confusing trade in systems as new? Otherwise, that's BS.
Nope. We literally have one of the old white boxes with the green rings sitting on the self. http://xbox360media.ign.com...
@Fireseed "We"? Freudian slip
Don't get it site says its been in stock for over 24 hours which I would assume as its a day one xb1. Or it are xb1 day one editions which previous were reserved units. Article kinda reads like an advertisement were to get an day one xb1.
Damn really Month Two Day One edition lol
Game have sold out and been restocked of Xbox ones multiple times. You have to wonder when these childish tit for tat fanboy articles are going to stop.
restocked with day one edition ! lol are you blind or you are a fanboy that can't understand the fact the console is not sold out !!
well its not sold out "everywhere" as the article says, it could have been the stores in the middle of nowhere that had a few more in stock and sent bk to hq to sell over the internet.
Hey, Omran you numb nut. If you had actually followed the stock at release and shortly afterwards, you would know retailers were restocked with Day 1 Editions several times. LOL LOL LOL etc. isn't that what you kids like?
well seem like 500$ price tag is a bit expensive while the system did a fantastic job so far, i still can't see it continuing selling very well in the future due to the fact that there's an identical 100$ cheaper system besides it called ps4, i expect the sale rate to decline for X1 (maybe not) that's why i expect MS to introduce a kinectless Xbox one once the manufacturing costs goes down so they can maintain the profit that the 500$ model is making
That's pretty atrocious. I would have expected Xbox One's day one UK inventory to have all sold out over xmas. I think this could be less impressive than the original Xbox's launch. C'mon MS, price cut to at least £399, or £349 stand alone, with option to purchase Kinect separately. Can't believe MS execs did not learn from the initially over priced £429 PS3 launch??
Thats what we have been told apparently its not entirely true. Don't expect a stand alone version that fast the x1 sales weren't that bad they did manage too double the sales in the first period compared to the 360 .
£299 without Kinect would be a perfect price point for the One. I'd buy one at £299 for the exclusives, but I absolutely loathe the idea of paying for that stupid damn camera. It's useless for games, and that's all I give a crap about. I have ZERO desire to watch TV while having to have a console going at the same time - a waste of energy for no benefit, as all the extraneous fluff that it adds has no interest for me.
100$ more and less powerful than its competitor? No suprise there. Money don't grow on trees and gamers aint dumb
Chrissx, mostly agree with you, but the dumb part.... look at this site... either most are dumb, or sad liars.....
MS has to make a $399 sku in order to compete. If they don't, this will end up being the ps2 era all over again.
clearly not ps2 era, ms is doing great, well good enough compared to original xb. sony has played their cards right this time tho, scraping bigger ambitions like cell processor that was supposed to be used everywhere. no expensive next gen disc drives. also price point and clearly better specs than the competitors. im guessing it would be 65:35 ratio this generation. now sony has to somehow convince gamers that multiplat games should be bought on the ps4.
Day Sixty One Edition
So if they remain unsold in two months time, would it be appropriate to call them Day 180 Editons?
well if you cant count then maybe it will.
GAME had these ridiculous overpriced game/controller/xbox live bundles with the Day One edition. It's possible they just stripped the bundles away now that the xmas frenzy is over and are now left with the Day One editions on their own for sale.
I was at a best buy in nyc a week ago and was surprised to see around 3 day one editions mixed up in a pile of regular ones. Microsoft needs to do something fast I have both consoles and think the x1 has potential but that price mixed with a kinect that some don't want is hurting them.
strange why these day one editions are not selling. may e they need to have a massive exclusive achievement unlocked right across the box. im pretty sure most people would pay a premium just for that. the achievement is for the day one editions right? or am i mistaken?
Yes there is a card inside the box that you redeem for the day one edition achievement
Lol MS really shouldn't have had different packaging for Day One editions. Whether or not day ones are still there this far from Day One, it makes them really easy to spot.
gamestop will be like "ill give you 20 bucks for that xbox one"
Seeing how other European nations can also get a Day One Edition from their PreOrder, even though it hasn't launched yet in those regions... those things must still be in production. After all those people did pre order a day one edition would be odd if the didn't get one.
Just shows there not selling no where near as much as PlayStation lol
There's a day one edition controller used in the demo rig in my local GAME.
