GameStop Reopens Xbox One Pre-Orders

GameStop Reopens Xbox One Pre-Orders

Xbox One - Main

Xbox One pre-orders are back in stock at GameStop, but only for a limited time.

Xbox One pre-orders have been officially sold out for a month, but GameStop is giving its customers a second chance to pick up Microsoft's newest console on launch day.

"Calling all gamers," said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising for GameStop, "if you have not pre-ordered your Xbox One console, now is your last chance. We have worked closely with Microsoft to offer our customers another opportunity to pre-order an Xbox One before its official launch date."

Before you race to your nearest GameStop, though, I should warn you about something: this particular batch of pre-orders only applies to the Xbox One: Standard Edition, not the Day One Edition. So, if you were hoping to get your hands one of those swanky, monogrammed controllers, you may need to spend a little time on eBay.

Like any good retailer, GameStop is hoping that you'll also pre-order a few Xbox One exclusives when you stop by to reserve your console. Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, and Capcom's Dead Rising 3 are all available and will hit the market with the Xbox.

GameStop has a limited number of pre-orders available. So, if you'd like to pick up an Xbox One on November 22nd, you may want to get rolling.

Think I'll pass.

Kinda surprised they were closed. I asked my own Gamestop's manager what the preorders were looking like, and she told me they were nearly 5-1 in favor of PS4. Admittedly, a sample of one is a poor, but I have sources!

See here.

According that VGChartz PS4 has a lead of about 200,000 consoles in the US. And considering console sales of each system in Europe and other areas, as well as launch availability, I expect the overall numbers are much larger.

Also, looking at the preorder sales by the games, I notice that most Third Party games, with the exception of CoD, are selling much better on the PS4, with Killzone sitting as the biggest selling exclusive.

So, who thinks EA shot themselves in the foot with that Titanfall exclusivity deal?

Already have mine ordered, thanks. :)

Gamestop has reported saying that the Xbox One floats.
"They float," CEO Penny W. Eise said, "They all float. If you pre order, you'll float to!"

I think pretty much everyone aside from diehard microsoft fans thinks that EA shot themselves in the foot at this point. Only way I can see them thinking that all the lost potential sales were worth losing must've been if microsoft offered a fortune equal to what they would've made otherwise... Then again this is EA we're speaking of and I gave up making sense of their actions a long time ago.

Sidenote: WTF does "Oops! You must have posted since you started writing this post. Please fill in the Captcha below to proceed!" mean? I haven't posted yet since the forum stopped me from doing it to give me that error...
