If you’re looking to buy an Xbox One, but would like the perks included with the limited Day One edition released when the console launched, you may be in luck, as availability of the sleek black-boxed version has popped up on Amazon.
It's not "Day One" anymore.
Really puts those shipped numbers into perspective.
That's a good point
Okay so obviously they didn't make more.... so where were they hiding Day One consoles? O_o
On 11/22/14 the Day One Anniversary Edition will go on sale, with the word "Anniversary" written in crayon.
@Eonjay Food for thought. Microsoft SHIPPED 5 million consoles to date. Sony has SOLD THROUGH 7 million. Should we assume that sony has manufactured more consoles than microsoft thus far? I don't think so. They probably have manufactured around the same amount but the demand for the xbone was way less so microsoft probably has a ton of xbones somewhere sitting in warehouses that were never shipped due to the much lower demand. Like I said, food for thought.
@mystic. OK, that was funny.
I think the reason why Sony is able to say what their Sell Through number is would be because it's so easy to measure since almost every single PS4 gets picked up.
Seriously??? Are you seriously suggesting that MS didn't sell (at retail) all the units they manufactured?? Either Microsoft were able to produce a phenomenal number of D1 units then, or they sell less than a quarter of what they have claimed....
Makes you wonder if the Titanfall bundle has sold more than the Day One bundle...
Loving my n4g disagrees. Its like a badge of honour, with no actual argument against my comment.
I believe microsoft are trying to just sell off those day one editions which did not sell
It's definitely not a good sign when "Day One" Editions of a console that launched over 5 months ago are still being sold by retailers, especially one as large as Amazon, and this definitely puts everything into perspective. 1.2 million units shipped in 2014 alone looks horrible when compared to the biggest competitor, whom managed to actually sell through much more than that. It sucks for MS because they're actually on pretty good terms when compared to their previous platform, but with the PS4 literally showing no signs of fatigue, all positive correlations with the previous generation are shot and buried. Next month marks a year since we first heard of Xbox One and we're still struggling to find a positive note on the Xbox camp. I think the best thing that's happened to them so far was Spencer taking over.
Tesco and Game near me have them in stock as well, still priced at £420.
Did they expect to sell several million day one editions? Im curious to know what percentage of xbones are day one editions. Obviously these are just stragglers and MS isnt still making day one's, but i mean i would guess at least a third of all xbones sold were day one editions so they must've made A LOT.
Ms kept a good amount back to replace faulty units as well as did Amazon. Thats all this is.
but they sold out of day one editions..........
Day 153 edition is a go.
Like night vision goggles when your 40 it's even better on day 153 lol.
It'd be pretty funny if next to the one someone scribbled "hundred fifty three" in permanent marker. :P
154 right now right? haha Thanks for counting or looking it up. You stole my post! lol
Really? Day One Edition? Buy it if you plan on locking it in a air tight case for 20 years and then it might be worth a few bucks.
yeah less than a broken ps4
Highly unlikely. More recent consoles were made with such bulk that they are super cheap 20 years down the line as they're very easy to find. Even boxed and new they generally only pull a little extra over a used version. Most reasonable collector's would open it anyways to insure that it works. Kind of a downfall to buying factory new retro consoles as a collector, although there are ways to mitigate the used status. The only ones that really raise significantly are those limited edition versions that come out, which isn't really what this is. If it were one of those white ones given to Xbox staff and they never release a white version, then it will be worth quite a bit in 20 years.
God this is very tempting but that $500 price tag :(
yup. I feel sorry for those people that payed over $700 for the PS3 on release.
I guess you don't realize how advanced the PS4 was at the time ? I ain't gonna lie my parents bought me a PS3 for 600 dollars when I was 10. I was so happy, now I'm 17 going on 18 next month and I buy my own consoles and I won't buy an Xb1 for 500. OT: Damn day 1 editions still available ? Holy crap.
It was still cheaper than any blu ray player at the time and cheaper than the competition with its relevant extras such as add on wifi and hdd
You can buy a "day one edition" for $500 or you can buy it used in "very good" condition for $400. Or a new One with Titanfall for $450. Or a used One Titanfall bundle for $400! This is a "news story" that is as old and "lame" as a satire story. Everyone already knows about this!
バカ Microsoft .They should look up what day 1 means.
Its the retailer putting this up for sale though. Don't be surprised if they withheld a few day one units to sell them for a markup like they're doing now.
Its not a markup, but rather the same price as it was on the original day one. I agree they may have held them for a later markup but they likely realized they could not sell it at a markup. There is an excellent thread at Gaf discussing the MS earning reports and the shipped in numbers reported by MS. There are likely between 800K and 1Mil X1s sitting on shelves. This is why retailers have been running a fire sale.
Tesco direct are selling them as well, my local game store has a few as well.
