I haven't really ever personally bought a console at launch (i'm 21 now). How long would you expect to have to wait after launch to actually get the console? Always seems that production never meets the demand at launch.
If you have Amazon Prime or signed up for the free trial, you'd get free 2-day delivery on the Xbox One. I think I might preorder mine if they don't charge you right away.

Has anyone seen this video? Pretty awesome technology..

I don't know why the embedded video isn't working, so here's the link - http://youtu.be/_AIswMnWfkI

They have the release date as 12/31/13, is that a default because no exact date has been set yet?

I just preordered mine from Amazon and the release date is 11/30/13. I have Amazon Prime, so 1-day shipping is only $3.99. I should have my Xbox One by December 3rd... That day can't come soon enough.

How do pre-order's work on Amazon? Can you cancel them or what?

Click preoder. Checkout. Done.

You don't pay until it ships. Nothing is charged to your card until the unit ships. In other words, you can still preorder now even if you're currently short on cash.

Make sure to get the Day One edition if you do preoder

EDIT: Just saw this post on another website and it helped clear up a lot of the nonsense floating around the internet:

Quote:
Okay, I don't usually bite at this stuff, but the irony was palpable. Do some research before you decry the supposed benefits of your opponent's chosen hardware. Heh.

First off, your interpretation of the used game sales is blatantly wrong. The consumer does not buy the disk, then pay a fee to activate the disk. They ONLY pay the cost of the used game to the retailer. That's it. The retailer may have to take a chunk of that money, and give it to the developer (depending on what deal they have worked out), but the end user is done.

Also, I can't tell if you knew this or not (your wording doesn't make me confident either way), so I'll just point this out. It is certainly true that you can't give away a game, and then continue to play it yourself in "the cloud". We both agree there. It is, however, possible to play a game you own on ANY Xbox One. Your game data is stored in the cloud and the licence is associated with your account, so you would only have to sign in, download the game on a friend's console and start playing. Again, your friend can't play it once you sign out unless he/she buys it for their own account.

"family of four could all individually sign into their own accounts and play the same disc " Games on the original console can all be played by ANYONE signed into console. It doesn't matter who. In that respect, it also seems that the Xbox has a leg up. Did you know that the PS4 requires PS Plus account to play multiplayer? As of yet, Sony has no such "family plan" option, at least that I know of. That means each account that wants to play would need to buy a separate subscription. With the Xbox, you can share one with everyone else that uses the console. So a multiplayer game would cost a family of four people (with separate accounts) more money to play on the PS4 than the Xbox One. Though who knows what changes Sony will do to their membership now?

/ opinion time

That first bit is an awesome step in the right direction. Used games profits used to only go to the retailer, so splitting up some of that to go toward the people involved with the game is great. The end user *shouldn't* see any price increase either in the used market, despite this. If you can't see why, I'll be happy to explain it to you.

"inherent restrictions" is such a weak argument. Did you know that physical disks also have inherent restrictions? Pick your poison. I'd argue that Microsoft's new scheme gives you a few extra tricks for sharing, which more or less make up for the format's limitations.

If you need a source, all of what I said comes straight from the horse's mouth. Most of it is on that website below, the rest of it was stuff announced in their conferences. If you need to find the source of something in particular, I'd be happy to help you.

Alright thanks. I have the money, just didn't want it tied up until the fall.

Haven't been keeping up with the console war stuff as close as I normally would.

I've been a Playstation guy since I've been a youngster. Can't go back now.

The only thing is that the one day shipping doesn't mean anything. Just because they take your order it doesn't mean that they'll have enough stock at release to fulfill all orders that have been placed.

At $4, I'm willing to take that risk

Amazon has always delivered (no pun intended [ok, pun intended]).

Xbox One "Day One" orders sold out, no idea how long ago. Here's hoping that the "Day One" preorders are all fulfilled then actually and i'll get it at launch.

Galvo, did you get the Day One or the Standard?

GameStops were allocated a certain amount, around 5-12 I would guess (mine had 10), and we sold them all on Day One. Somehow we were floated more today, I'm not sure of the total, but not many, and we sold those too. We were allocated 26 PS4s and sold half today on Day One, although for some reason there's a very minimal allocation of PS controllers if you need to pick up spares. Not sure if that'll change over the next couple months, but keep it in mind if more than one person will be playing on your console.
