Amazon: "For those who prefer black boxes to blue."
Talk about "Painting the Town Black".
Mine will be with me on Friday, hopefully the foxconn lads haven't laid hands on mine...???
Microsoft uses Foxconn to manufacturer their stuff as well. Here's to hoping the story of those interns messing with consoles weren't true and it was just a bad batch of components that Sony had received.
I hope that not the case; otherwise class action suits might be tossed around and then everyone loses. Gateway MT6706 2008
I hope everyone enjoys their Xbox Ones. It'll be so great to have both of the next-gen consoles out.
Hope you have a great time with you're new Xbox One & enjoy you're games I got another week to wait very excited though .
only 10% of the xbox one are manufactured by Foxconn, 90% are manufactured in brazil.
Expect salad cream where the arctic silver 5 should be ;-)
i don't agree with the way they treat employees, but if my system is f'ed up, and it was their doing, i will fly there in a gyrocopter with a red cut sleeve on and single handedly fist punch each one of them until they loose touch with reality.
Enjoy your consoles all. I have to line up for mine didn't pre-order, but got a $500 gift card for Best Buy to buy one ;D
Microsoft has always had really good packaging for their consoles.. I loved how snuggly packaged the 360's were and even the box designs themselves are great.. Kinda digging the day one black packaging. Unfortunately I could only afford one console at launch and decided on the PS4.. May get an X1 when Titanfall comes out though.. Maybe I can find a Day 1 edition online somewhere..
I agree that day one box looking real good. I'm mad we talking bout boxs hahaha
I got the PS4 as well with Need for Speed and Madden 25. Only one of friends who got the PS4, Sony got me with the E3 hype, MS didn't help with their disastrous E3. XB1 is back on my radar after deciding to cancel what would have been my new Radeon 290 video card. I might have to stand outside for this come Thursday night. My local Best Buy informed they should have 20-30 in stock not meant for pre-orders.
Picking mine up from EB on the way to work Friday morning. Already had someone ask me to trade him one of my Day One Editions to him for a non Day One Edition +$100.
whoa!!!! try to squeeze $50 more out of that. Your gonna have to trust him enough to give you his when it comes or u could take his receipt lol
Have a great day friday with you're Xbox One .
one of those are mine :D im so excited!
"Of course we're going to go with the PS4, they're blacker" —Goth kid from South Park.
Those are day one shipping boxes I presume? I think the black looks sick but the green is okay.
loving my ps4. but...must say, the packaging of the One is pretty sharp. hopefully they release a kinect free version or they eat $100 so I can pick one up in time to play then next halo. Im a Sony guy, but quite enjoy having both consoles in my house. Exciting times ahead of us!
Still wonder if the XB1 have a chance exceeding 1 million units in 24hrs.
can't wait, close to release. not much else to say
Ughhh.. These two weeks are leaving my wallet black and blue all over. Sorry I couldn't resist.... :-D
I see what you did there...but ya....my bank account is hurting too. Thankfully, PS4 sales are helping to soften the blow.
I see what you did there ;)
Well, we had our release last week which was more or less smooth. Enjoy the release, and hope everything goes smooth for the gamers!
That's not a dam.
It's a space station!
To those getting an Xbox One: I hope you guys and gals have a great launch! Enjoy your games. Ignore the troll articles. I hope you all enjoy your XBO as much as I enjoy my PS4. This generation already rocks. :)
This site would be a better place if more people shared your attitude...
Nice..i hope others on n4g follow in your footsteps?
TO ALL GAMERS THE NEW GENERATION HAS ARRIVE, LETS TAKE A MOMENT TO REMEMBER THE FUN OF LAST GEN AND PRAY THAT THIS GENERATION IS JUST AS GOOD, PRAY FOR SLEEP. THANK U MS and Sony MAY ALL GAMERS ENJOY YOUR CONSOLE OF CHOICE G A M E O N
Yes I feel you, but I feel even more sorry for those who got faulty consoles. Theres not more worst than waiting to have something only to be let down by whatever reason it was. I really do hope you MS fans enjoy your consoles. We are all here for the games anyway right. Please do me a favour and enjoy your consoles no matter the choice. Hell even the Wii U too!
I love that you have 5 disagrees on there. What psychopath sees a statement like that and says "NO! You're wrong, we have to be mad and hate each other all the time for no reason!"
Welcome to N4G. Please, sit down . . . we have a lot to discuss.
As a ps4 owner I am excited to see xbone launch as well!!! If only they were releasing halo with it... I think I would have had to have it too! Halo is my favorite game series :-)
This is pretty awesome, getting very excited for friday, even though i order my day one edition from the Microsoft Store, pretty cool seeing all of those beautiful black Day One Editions!
So hot :) This should be the standard box IMO.
Dem be some juicy lookin' boxes. So thick. Just like I like my wome- err. Ahem. Can't join the festivities with you guys at launch, but hopefully for christmas!
Is it me... Or do those boxes look absolutely gigantic? O_o
they are huge but it only seems that way because the ps4 one is so thin, in reality the XBone box is comparable to the launch ps3 one. the black box looks more classy the xbox brand should change its colours to black and green instead of a solid green which is a bit of an eye sore
I was totally surprised how small PS4 box was. So tiny and compact. It didn't help box used to ship it in was like 4-5 times its size though ;) Bubble wrap to the rescue!
I think they are a lot bigger then the Ps4 box because of the bigger console, Power supply and Kinect in the Xbox one box.
What he said..
I really love them being gigantic , it just let me feel good and I don't know why
If they had released in the 29th, that would've made the 'Black Friday' more sense. here's another one... Black is the new Black
the 22nd makes more sense. Its exactly 8 years after the 360 was released.
Oh, didn't realize. Thanks, my post now looks stupid.
Enjoy you console Xbox users!
Thank you to the classy play station 4 owners who wish us well,can not wait until Thursday night.
Hope they get 1080p soon. 720 doesnt interest me
So.... any game on Ps4 that is 720p u won't get?
I'm getting mine at midnight Thursday, can't wait. No work Friday booked it off. Going to play Fifa till about 5 in the morning.
This week will be a week long remembered. It has seen the release of PS4, and will soon see the release of the Xbox One.
Way to go Vader.
Enjoy lads hope Forza is as good as it looks, Still got to the 29th for my PS, No Fair
I'm looking forward to Ryse. GameStop has my baby already in their stock room. I'm sorry you have to wait. I'm enjoying my PS+ free games as well as the F2P games. The PS4 is even better than the hype. I was a little bummed that ere are no demos to download but the streaming feature is sick. It's very helpful in deciding what game to pick up next. There is a suspend resume feature, not as good as XB1 (5 apps open at once), but it's cool to play some Resogun then switch to Netflix when my fiancé wants to watch some Psych. Then when she falls asleep I switch back to Resogun and resume right where I left off. Thinking about picking up the PS4 camera as well. Although, the voice controls work with a headset. Also, my Astro A50s work perfectly without having to plug anything into the controller. Sorry to go on about PS4 but it is an amazing console. I am confident that the XB1 will be a perfectly matched opponent to the PS4. Two more days and then I'm parking my butt in a chair in front of GameStop for 14 hours.
Enjoy your console guys. I'm sure I'll pick one up closer to the titanfall release. Have fun.
Imagine if one of these pallets went missing? Someone would have a very rich payday ahead of them and some very angry customers. Here's hoping UPS doesnt drop kick my system. Anyone remember the original Ace Venture opening scene when he's kicking the package all the way to the person's door? Lol
Awesome pic. This is going to be an awesome week.
X1!!!!! cant wait for Friday and gonna have a 3 day weekend hell yea cant wait to get my hands on that X1 controller !!!
Awesome can't wait
I love seeing all these consoles at one time. Last week was PS4 this week it is the almighty Xbox. Good time to be a gamer.
Getting mine on Thursday, Off Friday and Monday. Outside of NFL, NCIS, NBA, and Family Guy i never watch tv so the wife know to steer clear of me for this launch weekend. DR3, BF4, AC4, NBA2k14, Madden, and of course Lego Marvel in case i need to entertain the kids...
Great line up of games bro
I'm looking around and stil can't find a place to preorder my x1...😡😡㈶ 5;😡
Sorry Killuminati, most if not all places closed preorders long ago, but still, there's hope-Go to your Walmart on Thursday morning and ask if they have any for purchase (non preorder) my Walmart had a few extra PS4s and gave those customers tickets and took their names. That night, those guys were also fortunate enough to score a system. Another option would be to check the lesser known retailers-Sears, Kmart etc. other than that and after launch, you're looking at mark ups from the eBay crowd as your only option. Good luck
Get the tent ready...
On ps4 release night at about 12am Amazon had more preorders..they had 1 day shipping for Saturday and 2 day for went day next week. Just maybe they do the same..
Ok thanks for tips.... I want my Xbox "NOW".
