Xbox One Console 02

Amazon reopened orders for a special edition of Xbox One that would be guaranteed to be available on release day, but they’ve all sold out.

If you were eager to order an Xbox One guaranteed to be in your hands this Friday from Amazon and you haven’t ordered it yet, you’ll have to wait some more. This morning at 8 a.m. EST, Amazon reopened Xbox One Day One preorders. However, the available Day One editions are already gone.

Amazon announced the new orders of the Day One edition on Twitter last night. The Xbox One Day One edition was not only guaranteed to be available on release day, Nov. 22, it also includes a commemorative controller, a token code to unlock an exclusive Day One achievement, and premium packaging. Other retailers have also sold out of Day One editions. Amazon also no longer has standard editions of the Xbox One available to preorder.

Amazon sold out of initial Xbox One preorders in mid-July after orders opened in June. The company then announced it was accepting preorders for standard editions, but these orders do not have at-launch availability.

Microsoft stores will have Xbox One systems in stock on launch day. Judging by the demand, if you’re still hoping to buy an Xbox One on Friday, you’ll want to head to a store early. All Microsoft stores in the US and Canada will have the systems available starting at 12:01 a.m Nov. 22. The console is priced at $500.
