Xbox One Day One Edition sold out at GAME, store can’t guarantee launch day delivery of standard edition

Tuesday, 27th August 2013 16:38 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

GAME has apparently sold out of Xbox One Day One Edition stock. The firm noted on its website it has “reached [its] limit for Xbox One Day One Edition console preorders”, and is unable to guarantee launch day delivery of the standard edition either. While the standard model is still available to order, you will likely not get it on launch day. Last week, Amazon said pre-orders placed after August 15 could not be guaranteed for launch day delivery and it had sold out of Day One Editions. None of this is surprising, really, it happens every time a new console comes out. The early bird gets the worrm, etc. Via Videogamer.

    Check out the Game website for your PS4 pre-orders it is the exact same thing!! In face it seems that not all consoles pre-ordered will be allocated on launch….unlike Xbox One!

    Yeah but the amount of allocated consoles the company was given, could be alot less than the amount of PS4′s it was given, etc.

    It’ll be interesting to hear how many Xbones the UK will get.

    Everybody wants the Xbox One.

    Ha-ha. $ony is probably shutting down offices this very moment. They can’t effort having those running once this beauty launches.

    I think we can safely assume that all current pre-orders are being honored as thats all the day one allocations gone where as sony hasn’t even said anything regarding allocations just a case of yeah pre-order as much as you want but we have no idea how many we will have ready but go for it!!!

    @1 yeah because twats that say rubbish like that aren’t a shame to the community either
    at least MS had the courtesy to say how many units were being allocated to both game stores and amazon uk (which dont know either how many PS4 units they will get)

    This is amazing.

    So many people full of information about how many consoles will be available. Bunch of fanboys. Anyone has an idea how this industry works? The amount of NDA are enormous.

    When a store is still getting preorders they know they will have stock.

    @1 if flamebots existed then you’d be the king of them. You don’t half bore me (and many others i assume) sometimes.

    Its sad that the majority of the people in this thread are idiots. Keep fighting each other on the comments section of articles and the execs of MS and SONY pocket your money and laugh at you from their mansions in the Bahamas.

    “XBox One is sold out, PS4 isn’t. Must mean the One is selling more.”

    Yes it must. But not if you don’t know how many of each are available, and not if you check, you know, the sales charts.

    I’ve just checked Amazon UK’s list for best- selling video game items so far in 2013:

    3. PS4
    28. XBox One

    Now you know why MS is panicking, sacking senior executives and writing massive cheques.

    #1 Screw you, you piece of shit troll. With all the preorders, the developers prioritzing the X1 as first class by releasing their games and DLC only on Xbox and the tremendous amount of launch line up the X1 has unlike the others, it is raping the Failstation 4 in pieces right now

    @15 they stopped taking pre-orders about 3-4 weeks ago didnt they? So you really cant use amazon at the moment since the one is not taking any orders and the other still is or has just stopped. But over a million pre-orders is still impressive, hell anything over 500k is impressive.

    The PS4 has been ahead of the One on Amazons UK and US ever since they were announced, Jim. It isn’t a recent thing.
