Chances/time frame of getting an X1 If you don't pre-order?

Well there is a lot of evidence that MS is going to be producing a crap ton of units and they've said there will be units in stores beyond just the preorders. I bet if you go to a midnight launch at Walmart or Target you'll be able to snag one.

You have to consider that every Xbox Live Gold member is potentially working against you on this. There are like 50 million subscribers. I'm guessing about 35 million of them are US based. Not everyone is actually going to make the jump to next gen in 2013 so perhaps 5% of them are actually looking. I'm guessing about 1.75 million people are looking for Xbox One this upcoming holiday season and only .75 million have pre-ordered (again, another guess).

So its you vs 1 million people.

I doubt you'll see them freely available on shelves until Q1 2014. But you can probably catch one without a preorder in November or mid-December if you're savvy and dedicated.

I already have one pre ordered, it's just I was thinking about canceling it and seeing how it does for like a month or so... I can't decide. Its pre ordered and paid it off(with my own money, which is saying something since Im in college) and it's just everything I see is so discouraging.

If you don't want it, then cancel it.
If you're worried you'll regret it, keep it until the return date and then decide. That should give you around 30 days.

I work at Target and we still have 7 or 8 preorder cards hanging around. I don't think it's going to be difficult to get your hands on at all.

You can always get one on release day, from eBay or Craigslist, for about $2000. You'll be able to buy it from the guy who preordered one from every store just to resell them and make a small fortune.

I hate those people.
