Gamestop taking pre-orders TODAY for Xbox One!

#1megametal42Posted 10/9/2013 1:15:05 PM
By pure chance I walked into my normal Gamestop, with a message on the door saying that they were taking reserves again. I will openly admit, that I buy/resell items all the time on eBay that I get from Gamestop...but I am letting everyone here know that I was told it was for TODAY only. So if you don't want to pay me double the price, you better run down and get one before they're gone.

I would not trust GS at all when it comes to pre orders for new console's,the problem is they really do not know how many consoles they will be getting,it's all here say and guesstamations,I was 43rd on the list for the 360 and they told me I would get one on day one and they expect 50-80 consoles and they ended up getting 12 lol did not get a 360 until 6 months later.

You're big chaim stores is you're best bet because they will be getting more because they have the room for it all,with 2 consoles being released in a week will be chaos at those stores,good luck and you have been warned.

SOunds to me like your Gamestop was run by idiots. My local store has been amazing with pretty much everything. LOL @ a GAMESTOP only getting 12 360's at launch. Do you live on a small pacific island or something?

This is what happens when people cancel their preorders. Sad that MS is having such a hard time selling this thing.

Seems to be true, I went today to pay off a pre-order and the guy at the counter had a big xbox 1 box with him and asked if I wanted to pre-order (A question I haven't been asked the last few times I've been since the launch)
