Xbox One Release Date: Day One Pre-Orders Still Available
Gamers who need to get a Day One edition to play on the Xbox One release date in November should get their wallets ready as two major retailers are offering Xbox One Day One pre-orders.
The Xbox One Day One Edition comes with a special logo and achievement, but the bigger part of the Day One moniker is a promised Xbox One release date availability.
While Xbox Day One pre-orders came to a halt recently, Microsoft was able to come up with a few more units to deliver to gamers and retail stores for the U.S. Xbox One release. It’s possible these new Xbox Day One edition pre-orders come from countries where Microsoft delayed the release.
This morning when Microsoft announced the Xbox One release date for November 22nd, the company also promised more Xbox One Day One pre-order units, and now gamers can head to Best Buy and Microsoft to lock in a unit for the Xbox One release date.
Best Buy offers two Xbox One Day One edition options. The Xbox One Day One console by itself with a $499 price tag and a Xbox One Day One bundle for $679. The Xbox One Day One bundle includes Call of Duty:Ghosts, a year of Xbox Live and a second Xbox One controller.
At this time both versions are available to order for delivery on the Xbox One release date. While most pre-orders do not charge a credit card, when one of the Gotta Be Mobile team ordered the Xbox One Day One edition his credit card was immediately charged the price plus tax.
When selecting in store pickup, be aware that the date may incorrectly show an option to pick up the Xbox One in stores today. Some Best Buy locations will open at midnight to let gamers get a full day of playing in on November 22nd. Check the list of Xbox One release date midnight store openings at Best Buy.
The Microsoft Store is also offering Xbox One pre-orders for delivery on release day, with limited quantities available. Gamers can pick up the Xbox One Day One for $499 at the Microsoft Store. The Microsoft Store Xbox One pre-order includes free shipping with release day delivery.
The Xbox One release date arrives a week after the PS4, but in time for the busy holiday shopping season and Black Friday deals. Microsoft is planning a large number of games to be available on the Xbox One release date, including Call of Duty:Ghosts, Forza Motorsport 5, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Madden NFL 25, Battlefield 4 and more.
