Xbox One Day One consoles back in stock

Microsoft says it has "found a way" to release more consoles guaranteed for November 22 launch; available now through official store, Best Buy.

Microsoft had sold through its entire Xbox One Day One Edition stock, but additional units are now available through select retailers, corporate vice president Yusuf Mehdi said in a release today.

"We've been very fortunate and we're very humbled by the amazing interest by our fans on Xbox One. So much so that we're actually at this point sold out of Xbox One in pretty much all major retailers around the globe," Mehdi said. "But because of the great progress that we've made by moving to full production and because of the demand we've seen, we've found a way to create a few more Day One SKUs."

"If you're lucky and you're up on your retail website this afternoon, you'll be able to get your Day One SKU," he added.

The Xbox One Day One Edition is currently available through Microsoft's official store and Best Buy, though the launch version of the console remains sold out through Amazon and GameStop.

Microsoft today confirmed the Xbox One will be released globally on November 22, exactly eight years after the Xbox 360 went on sale. Mehdi declined to give specific figures regarding demand for the Xbox One compared to the Xbox 360, but said Microsoft is expecting the "biggest holiday release" ever in the company's history for the new console.

I like how there's a bunch of people in here thinking they know the reason why Microsoft stock or not it's pretty funny actually! Before you bash on them for having extra because nobody is pre-ordering just know that I pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 yesterday, And was told that I would have it launch day.

When did E3 not become about games? Microsoft showed off amazing game after game at E3. They won the software side of E3 which is what matters. I pre-ordered one because those games looked amazing, and Microsoft did a great job at giving the better reasons to buy an Xbox One. Sony showed off indie games which don't interest me, multiplatform games *Kingdom Hearts 3, Elder Scrolls Online, Final Fantasy Versus*, all of which I can buy on Xbox One. The only thing Sony "did" was talk trash and zing Microsoft, they tried to scare people into not buying an Xbox One, they didn't do a damn thing to try and lure me into buying a PS4. Certainly not their awful game lineup.

if you llike PC. I never played on PC during my younger days, so consoles are, for me, a gift! (I grew up in the nineties, where PC was very expensive and not pushed by schools...

But MS has finally installed blu-ray. An alsmost 7 years old technology.

Don't let it fool you,, It's in stock because the High Supply vs Demand is low.  MS simply has more units sitting packaged up in storage then customers originally thought.  Especially since they can't get DisKinect to work properly with all voice recognition..    More MS BS propaganda.

They can keep mine. I cancelled my preorder as soon as I found out about the mandatory spy camera.

Proof will be in the Nov NPD come Dec. I expect PS4 to sell more. I expect both consoles to sell less than expected, however.

Anyone else read that as "Good news! Enough people canceled their pre-order that we have some Xbox Ones! You should buy them."

Found away AKA cancelations (which I will probably be doing)

So Microsoft is out of stock but other stores are not... Seems like a dumb reason just to advertise Xbox One. I'm not a fan boy but Gamespot shoving xbox one down my throat lately is a turn off. Still undecided tho... my pc is way faster than both systems anyways. I'll just walk into a store any day after launch if I want one. Screw preorders.

I bet they had a ton of Xbox's still in stock to begin with and just "claimed" they sold out.

Just don't let this "found a way" thing mean red rings of death like status for all those who pick it up. I'm getting my xboxone closer to Titanfall or Halo 5, i kinda feel more insulted by microsoft at the moment by throwing away their vision and copying sony, its discouraging. Playstation has always been my top choice, day one PS4 Cant wait!

I had mine preordered through Gamestop.com, but had to pay shipping and wait for it to come in the mail. Nov. 22nd is a Friday, so I'd have to wait an extra 5 days or so before it would've came. I just preordered it through Bestbuy.com and can pick it up at my local store at midnight, plus I save on shipping. Might keep the Gamestop preorder to sell on eBay before X-mas.

Best Buy getting a few extra Xbox one launch consoles. Devote them to the U.S.A where Xbox brand is strongest. Mexico and Canada may be 2 extra day one Xbox one consoles. But all of these will be going to U.S.A if Microsoft is going to quickly win over the Dude Bros in Suburban America.

LOL well, with the delayed launch in the smaller unimportant EU countries, its no wonder that they now have extra consoles.

Microsoft you suck and you know it.

i preordered mine the minute they were available lol

So probably 30-60% of everyone who pre-ordered it canceled their order. That should account for the "extra" ones that thye now have.

Glad to see they'll be plenty of day one editions. I was worried my preorder was not going to be fulfilled.

@Frederick Quatman Pretty much my take on MS vs Sony is this.


While I do not trust MS, and I hate how the Kinext is included, I far prefer the default controller, so much so it is a deal maker for me. I think the X1 has a much stronger games lineup. I like how MS is attempting to make more then just a games console, and I will never trust Sony after their network got hacked, twice a few years back. X1 for me, all the way.

@Frederick Quatman Playstation always ends up with better games 2 years into its life, so if you buy PS its for the long run, too many zombie games out there so that didnt attract me, titanfall will be on PC, and forza no i play PC sims and Gran Turismo because of so many awesome cars to collect, plus all that crap with NSA and backtracking put me of MS for good, they dont care about console customers, most money they make is from windows and related sales, console market for them is just pocket money, plus they are making same mistake sony did with ps3, going with that home entertainment system thing, its a gaming console and i want games as many different genres there is and sony is doing that, in reality only desperate gamers these days will buy console based on exclusive games, with MS they all end up on PC in 6 or less months

@hordaak cause they ar crap company who only cares about consumers in windows department and related, for them console money is just some pocket money

@Martyr77 Oh, you mean the mandatory spy camera that actually can be turned off AND unplugged? Funny story is that the government has full access to your cell phone sent and received info and real-time access yet you complain about a freaking video game peripheral that gives you the option to not be used? People sure are funny.

@Kooken58 

yes. because more people will suddenly want to buy everything that's listed as sold out. consumers are just that stupid. i applaud your logic and marketing prowess.

@rice2555 Or it could be the ones that were put aside for the countries that they delayed the launch in.

@Cochleadoc I hope its a cool color this time. Like maybe it can rotate colors to keep you entertained. Red, to blue, to purple, to yellow, to orange, back to red. I think that would be cool....

Extra 'failure' lights have probably been included, which is were some of that $100 price difference comes from.

@hordaak and they tried to screw you over then realized they wouldnt sell one unit then changed their tune lol, PS for the long run, history of consoles and games shows that, cant argue it

@Bowser05 @Martyr77 AFAIK it can't be unplugged, unless MS changed this down the line and I missed it somewhere

Also strange they allow you to turn if off but state that it's a permanent fixture to the XB1, you have to pay for it and it needs to be plugged in (even when turned off) for the device to work. MS sure is strange, and Xbox loyalists sure are naive.

@blue_shift_91

Umm.... Actually a proven market strategy.

In fact it's such a effective strategy that the government sometimes try's to intervene cause it can sometimes be used to control prices.

Not saying that Microsoft is doing that(especially with a pretty close substitute good going on sale at the same time) but don't act like it never happens lol.

@OldKye 

normally i'd agree. but my comment was in response to one operating under the assumption that a bait and switch or scarcity tactic applies for a product he, himself, suggests is unpopular. that makes no sense.
