I'm considering buying a preordered Xbox One from someone. Question.

#1Quiet451Posted 11/1/2013 12:18:14 AM
A friend of a friend of mine has offered to sell me his Xbox One preorder at Gamestop for $530. It's fully paid off. If I just buy the receipt from him, am I good to go? Will I need to show Gamestop any ID or proof of credit card to pick it up? Or can he and I go to Gamestop before release and somehow transfer the preorder to me? Thanks for the help.

I haven't picked up a pre-order from Gamestop in a long time, but I think there is an ID requirement involved. Could be wrong though. I'd play it safe regardless and have him go with you to the store.

You have to show ID.

You should just buy the console from him once he gets it.

I'm not familiar with the type of thing I'm seeing

This. Do not exchange money until you have the Xbox One in your hands.

At least that way you'll only be getting ripped off by Microsoft and not some random dude.

He's going to just get a refund for it if I don't buy it from him, so I have to somehow get it now or never. He needs the money now, which is why he offered it to me. I'm just going to call up Gamestop tomorrow. I know the guy pretty well, but I just don't want to take any chances.

^This. You could have done your own preorder.
