All Microsoft Stores in the United States and Canada will have extra Xbox One units available for purchase beginning at midnight on November 22, a Microsoft representative told GameSpot today.

Supply is said to be "limited," and consoles will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Head to the Microsoft Store website to find the location closest to you.

Like the PlayStation 4 before it, Xbox One units for those who did not preorder are proving difficult to come by. Day-one systems remain sold out through GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, and Microsoft Stores.

The Xbox One launches in 13 territories on Friday, November 22 for $500. For more on the next-generation console, check out GameSpot's review roundup.

GameSpot's video coverage of the Xbox One continues tomorrow, November 19, at 9 p.m. PDT with a video demonstration of the hardware and user interface.

It's good to see Microsoft giving preference to its own chain for a change.

Xbox one will have failures too...theres no way any electronic device can ship 100% failure free.. And there is no way xbox one is even close to the power of PS4.. Developers have even come out and said the PS4 is up to 50% more powerful than the One and the numbers support that...32MB of ESRAM on Xbox? Laughable..the archtecture is much more simple in PS4.. Xbox One is prone to bottlenecking..with that said, i will eventually get the one once the price comes down

You can upgrade directly from Live according to the pop-up before the game starts on X360...they dont even mention a digital coupon.

Thats true but I think naming it the one was a dumb idea because it sounds like its the first xbox.

http://uk.ign.com/blogs/finalverdict/2013/10/26/xbox-one-vs-playstation-4-hardware-and-specifications/ PS4 has better individual components; Xbox1 is built smarter and has better combined components. The machine is incredible with better software and background processes than the PS4, but also has Sound which is more than twice as good as the Playstation and a faster CPU than the Playstation. The Move Engines combined with the esram really closes the gap on the PS4's more advanced GPU reducing the strain on the XBOX's Graphics Processing Unit and Computer Processing unit meaning more can be done on the XB1 with a slightly less powerful graphics card. I personally believe the XBOX1 is the machine that is capable of a lot more than the PS4, however developers need to learn how to use it to the fullest potential. They are both unbelievably close in capabilities, so forget the fanboi-isms and just pick your machine dependent on exclusives and whatever your friends play.

Isn't the game inside the HARDENED edition just a standard boxed game? You should be able to trade that in solus.

Xbox people are not stupid. We realize that the PS4 is a better system. We choose Xbox because we like the games, community, getting dlc first, and the new tv capabilities will be very cool. These arguments are getting old. They both have great things to offer. Stop whining and buy them both like I will.

By unspectacular i mean, bad reviews, multiple complaints about hardware crashes over heats and the like

If people really REALLY looked into things and saw the truth PS4 is the best without a doubt or hesitation. Better hardware. Easy hardware to work with. Better graphics and gameplay. Better games for sure. Better developers cause anybody knows NAUGHTY DOG shits on every other development team and publisher without trying. PS4 is the way to go and xbox fanboys will see soon enough.

It was the same with the PS4. They always ship a little bit extra. A friend of mine waited in line at Best Buy to get one launch night. Nothing new here. Both consoles will rock, and people will have tons of fun. We could always just enjoy our games instead of constantly wasting time bashing the other console.

Horrible launch on both systems but X1 looks weaker and weaker by the minute. It looks like both systems were rushed a year early but PS4 will fare better. Damn... I really want to like X1, as some of the features online look to be much better than anything Sony has shown so far, but am losing any confidence that it can even handle 720p without bogging down. You can't even play any demos at Gamestop, only watch the vids. MS didn't even ship them any controllers. WTF?????????? Bad. Very bad.

Can I resell it for more money?  That is all I care about.

Ok maybe not all about reselling consoles and I will own a PS4 and Xbox One maybe one day but eh not now.

If you was willing to spemd $100 on cod then why not just WAIT and spend that on the ps4/Xbox one version instead? I got my ps4 hardened off Amazon for £69 and now know I dont need to upgrade, yeah ive had to wait 3 weeks to play but I have a life so its cool

Well yeah isn't that how stock works? You get some, people buy it and it then runs out.

It is first come first serve why I had to send about six hundred very angry people away from their beauty essentials box set in Boots when I worked there last christmas because they sold out. 

People just didn't seem to grasp the fact that we had about 1000 but people had bought them already.

Does it really float in the air like that? If so, then this is the best console ever.

Meh... I'll wait.... XBOX is known for failure on first batch hardware.

Well, Sega had the Genesis, then the Dreamcast... Following that 1 then 2 then 3 logic Nintendo should have released a platform named N128. They can name their product whatever they want, even to the detriment of their sales, their IP anyways.

All games are made on PC's . It would of course be better if every PC-gamer stopped playing PC and started playing like you do. That would really improve your gaming and your games would look and feel better.

@Joseph Johnson@Joseph Johnson it's easier to not talk what you really don't understand the technology  .Lets start by The furor that kicked up two weeks ago over Call of Duty: Ghosts' native resolution on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One appears to have gotten its sequel. With reviews of the Xbox One version trickling in today, some are saying the Xbox One does not suffer the frame-rate drops that were reported in the PS4 version.P

Both IGN and Polygon updated their reviews of the game to note Ghosts consistently held at 60 frames per second, where the PS4 suffered noticeable framerate drops in multiplayer, as had been earlier mentioned by these publications and others.P

"The Xbox One release's framerate was far more noticeable," wrote Polygon. "As mentioned in the initial review, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from consistent framerate drops on the PS4, especially during multiplayer when action got especially hectic. The Xbox One version suffered no such drops, maintaining a steady 60 frames per second throughout."1P

IGN's reviewer said he dealt with "occasional framerate issues during the single-player campaign on PS3 and PS4, whereas my time with the Xbox One version was stable throughout." oh by the way i own both systems and the new consoles both so their is no bias but fact  and second PlayStation 4 has  endured a rocky journey leading into its respective releases. Sony’s PS4 had a wonderful birth into the public sector but has gone through a series of disappointing reveals coming into launch such as dodgy privacy agreements, oddly absent features and app support issues which have hurt its clean record. not to mention a real shitty game line up as far as exclusives.

@Thomas Stoddard LOL. Good question.  There are two in north Georgia, but they're not exactly convenient for me.  But it's no less convenient for me to reach than an Apple Store, and only slightly less convenient than reaching Best Buy.

@Kalena Punishedestiny Saunders Well in the last years the PS3 got far more exclusive DLC's than Xbox did. Not taking sides here i'm just saying ^^

@WingChopMasta @MALEVOLENT312 I hope if you did'nt pre-order one you are right,but I know Microsoft cut back on a 21 country launch and instead now it's only 13. That leaves me to believe, they know they can't keep up with the demand to meet expectations at launch.

@MALEVOLENT312 @WingChopMasta 

More likely the absence of demand you mean. Imagine the effect when the news hit home that their console doesn't sell. Surely it won't help for any local demand.
