Question Are you Pre-Ordering the Xbox One?

I just pre bought my Xbox One – first preorder at the store I frequent. GameStop, and I'm sure other retailers, have initial pre-order allotment restrictions that will make it very difficult to secure the console if not reserved early.

That said, who (other than me) is going to pony up $500 and is comfortable dealing with DRM and other supposed hardships said to impact gaming on the Xbox One console?

I have had my name on a list at EB Games since the initial announcement. They weren't allowing actual pre-orders yet, so I'll do that next week. Oh, and Killer Instinct...Fuck yeah!

Word of warning... the high volumn GS I go to was allotted 12 Xbox Ones for pre-order - this store and from my understanding many in the Las Vegas area are already sold out - who know they (GS) might reopen reserves later??? Not sure of availbility are GS/EB nation wide, but i'd be quick about it.

Oh, you can get Xbox One bundles online http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-one too.

I gotta be honest...After the press conference from Sony tonight...I'm kind of leaning PS4 off launch right now. It's probably going to have the bigger install base. The only think I'm kind of worried about is I'm primarily a sports gamer, and EA and MS seem to have something goin on there.

I've never pre-ordered a game or game console, and I doubt I ever will. With a backlog like mine and no interest in online gaming, it's a complete waste of money.

I have seen your game library. For you to claim getting a new system is a waste of money, I laugh at you sir.

anyways, Got my XBox One pre ordered today. Not sure what games I'm getting yet at launch, but Forza will be one of them. Also Gamestop is running a deal now with a bunch of games, If you buy the game at release date for the 360, You can get it for only $10 when it launches for the One, by trading your other game in for it.

I said that it's a waste of money for me to get it at launch BECAUSE of my current library.

They will sell briskly. All the drama will be forgotten.

I've never been one to pre-order things and that's not about to change here. Getting the Xbox One and PS4 sometime after launch when they're more readily available. The Xbox One being region-free for gaming is a huge relief!

I've used the PS4 controller. It's not much improved. It's basically the same.

Until they switch the positioning of the D-pad and left control stick it is the same old PS controller. I own both the 360 and PS3 and always just "put up with" the PS3 controller. I'm leaning towards PS4 as my first purchase and will likely get some kind of Xbone controller adaptor.

I really want to try the Wii U's gamepad. They swapped the ABXY buttons and the right analog stick.

For shooters, there should probably be buttons on the back of the controller, like the Steam controller. Since they're the #1 genre right now (probably), I'd design around that.

that is disappointing to hear. the PSX controller was extremely awkward to me then, and somehow it never felt much better. OH! There have been worse controllers, but none that haunted me for 14 years.

also was the deciding factor when I bought the Xbox consoles. I loved the Sega Dreamcast controller, it was my favorite to date. (There was a grey madcatz DC controller with blue rubber grips, but still). The Xbox improved on those and that matters to me.
