anyone have any luck getting a store to tell you how many systems they will get?

Huh? My Gamestop told me exactly how many they were getting and exactly how many they were getting extra that we're for walk-ins.

Every store has their allocations determined already, the store management would know, regular employees might not. Judging by how retailers were given a set amount of total pre-orders they could accept, it's safe to assume that all pre-orders will be full filled.

Without knowing the exact amount of consoles I see no reason your Gamestop would not get enough to cover their preorders. From the time they first had the preorder SKU in the system its has been a controlled amount. They would reopen preorders as they found out they were being allocated more. If anything they are a better bet than Best Buy plus their preorders are based off the date originally entered in their system.


true but didn't some bs happen with the 360 where you would get a call the week before saying sorry not enough pre order systems are coming in


And that would be why the amounts were controlled this time. With the 360 they just kept on doing preorders without knowing their company wide allocation. To avoid thay fiasco they went with low figures then added more as MS allocated them more. I can tell you with confidence that if you preordered at Gamestop you will get your One without an issue.


well with that being said, I feel bad I took 2 pre orders up. and left someone hanging, oh well guess ill cancel the BB pre order the next morning after I get my one at midnight at GS

My Walmart is getting in 21 Xbox One's... 17 of which are preordered.

So that leaves just 4 extra for the customers to fight over come launch day, and waiting in line, etc.
