Does this mean they weren't sold out?

I ask because I remember reading that some people had Day One and were getting replacements that weren't Day One.

Well, he recommended tracking stock via FB and twitter -- so mission accomplished here, for folks who aren't feeling deliberately obtuse.

These are the ones that people who pre-ordered but didn't actually pick them up missed out on.

Probably stores sending canceled preorders back to be sold on web store. Day One edition that doesn't sell on day one is a PR blunder though. I actually returned my Day One for a green box. Day One was missing xbox logo. Green Box was manufactured in November day one was September.

How many more thread about "Xbox One available at Amazon" "Xbox One available at BestBuy" ?

Anyways, about the day one edition. My friend came with me for the midnight launch without pre-ordering it. And I had it pre-ordered so got the day one edition and he didn't because they were sold out. Next day one of my other friend order through Futureshop and he got day one edition.

The point here is, there are only specific number of day one edition MS has shipped to each store, so might end up getting regular edition on release day and you might get day one edition on next day. Poor execution? may be. but you can't blame neither MS or retailer over this, having two different SKU and one with limited quantities, this was gonna happen.

YEH!, don't want to offend Microsoft.

No harm done if people make fun of the situation a bit. Everyone knows that xboxone sold really well regardless.

Preorders being released, naturally. The timing matched their policy.

Both are easily available, though PS4 is in very limited quantities as most stores didn't receive it (or maybe simply chose not to stock it, which isn't surprising as Sony chose to not have a launch event or release physical games).

Xbox One is seeing a massive marketing campaign (completely centered on Forza 5, I see ads for it all over the place). Makes me wish them success for taking this market seriously.

Why not?

Don't we want people to know when/where these new consoles are available to buy, especially since they're supposed to be hard-to-find right now?

Isn't one thread enough, and then keep updating it. If you really want to help people to find one.

Didn't the Amazon thread get locked/closed once they sold out? I just assumed that's what would happen here once they sell out.

I think a thread as they're available is more helpful, personally. At least while the holiday season is upon us. When they sell out the thread sinks regardless, no one gets hurt.

Even bringing that up in this discussion comes off as a grasping at straws. The silly prices/taxes in Brazil are irrelevant to the rest of the world.

Go and read the forum rules about this stuff. Easy to get banned for thread whining here.

Standard ones were manufactured later so hopefully all the kinks were worked out. I had a day one that was manufactured in Sept. my green box was Nov.

Source? For real. No available PS4s are a result of unclaimed preorders? That would be huge news.
