Just preordered an Xbox One tonight at Gamestop

Since Gamestop reopened preorders for launch Xbox One consoles for one day only, I went ahead and put in a preorder tonight with a $100 dollar deposit. I so cannot believe I am going to be an Xbox One gamer after being a Playstation gamer for so long. I was going to get a PS4, but since its launch games are lacking, the Xbox One became more and more attractive despite having a disdain for the console and Microsoft around E3. However, since Microsoft changed their implementations for the better, I am a forgiving person and will let bygones be bygones....as long as they don't reimplement all of that DRM garbage later down the road.

The games I plan on getting at launch are: Forza 5 First Day Edition, Ryse: Son of Rome and Battlefield 4. Those 3 games should tide me over until I can afford Madden 25, Need for Speed: Rivals and an Xbox Live Subscription card in December. Fortunately, I will also have Call of Duty: Ghosts on my PS3 for my sessions of multiplayer gaming too. November is becoming an expensive gaming month for me between PS3, Xbox One, Wii U and my 3DS, but it will be an amazing month at that. :D

Agreed, i'll be spending so much money this month to. It's gonna be one of the best months for gaming in a while.

Cool. If I wasn't getting both, I probably would get the Xbone first due to it having more games announced to coming in the first year that I'm interested in and get the PS4 later when Second Son comes or when the PS4 is eventually blessed with the godliness that is Naughty Dog. Mainly a Sony guy here too.

Ordered me a Xbox One with Ryse. Working on getting other games paid off as well.

They've got extra day one editions due to all the cancellations of preorders after the console can't do true 1080p like the PS4

Source? Thats right you don't have one. So stop talking out of your ass. I would guess MS has release more stock to stores.

Or....... they opened it up because they gained more shipments. Just like BestBuy did 3 weeks ago. Unless everyone saw the future 3 weeks ago.

Nice! Way to take the joy out of my topic with a trolling statement like this. Go back to your cave, troll. -_-"

lol even though NBA 2K14, Forza 5, and technically Dead Rising 3 and Crimson Dragon would prove you wrong, you're making a lot of sense (sarcasm). Isn't it interesting how PS4 also does snapping, skype, dedicated servers, etc...wait. No it doesn't. I don't know what I was thinking.

Good for you. No matter what people say, the XBO will be an amazing system. Even if it does have a few low points.
