Whats your prediction on when the 1X pre-order will go up and any bundles/trade in offers

29 posts in this topic

Whats everyone think? Nov 7th is only 4 months away and nary a word yet. 

 

I was able to take advantage of that Gamestop trade-in offer where they were giving an additional 60% and walked away with $486 in store credit.. Now Im anxious to get my pre-order in. Plus I still have my OG 1TB X1 I can trade in if there is a good trade in program. Would be nice to grab Forza and AC:Origins and maybe Battlefront II to play on it.

Pre-orders activate early to mid September.  Best Buy/Gamestop will offer their standard promotional trade-in values for an XB1/PS4.

You think they will only give a 2 month window? 

 

I cant remember the last time I preordered a system...but I feel like it's almost been 6+ months

I really don't think MS expects there to be such high demand for the system to begin with.

Yeah maybe not. I want a UHD BR player so this is my answer. So I'm excited to get one.

I think it will sell well its first holiday season as there are plenty of MS faithful that will want it day one or at least by Christmas. Its prospects following this holiday are a little more cloudy unless MS can offer up enough quality exclusive software to validate its existence. Mission not accomplished so far!

I think Anthem will be a huge system mover for the 1X if it's the "definitive console experience"

By the time Anthem launches, there could be a PS4 Super-Pro.

But then they'll do a price drop and phase out the One S. Which is what I think their secret plan is anyway.

I like it, but I wonder if they will. I can certainly see $100.00 off the system by the following Christmas though.

I doubt that.  They will phase out the X1S when Sony phases out the PS4 Slim. Phil has stated they are going for 2 options like Sony, I don't see that changing.

I keep up with this stuff over at CAG so I now know exactly when they do stealth bumps each month. The last Friday of each month to around the first Monday of the next month is when they have bumps for a few days. For now, if you're interested in flipping you need to sit still until the end of the month

I think this FCC thing is a smoke screen for something else. It is possible that some idiot at MS forgot to submit paper work to the FCC, but I cannot understand it taking this long still.

 

Is the Ten-bo-ten One Ten the first console where we've seen hardware shown off, and were unable to pre-order within 6 months of release?

I wonder if something changed with the way things get approved.  I mean we can't preorder the snes emulator thing yet either.

Larry Hryb mentioned something about them "putting some things together" for the launch of the pre-orders. I dunno if that's PR speak or if they really are still prepping something.

 

Also, they're going to be at Gamescom this year, which I believe they skipped last year. That's in August, so that's when I predict the pre-orders will go live.

Look back at the Elite Controller and how quickly THAT sold. I feel as though if they don't get ahead of this and have enough ready at launch ... you know, nope they won't be in trouble now that I think about it as it will create even more of a demand once sites report on console shortages & high demand by consumers, that's actually genius!

I have my clicking finger on the trigger to put in my pre order. As weird as it sounds I have been patiently waiting to play the Witcher dlc because it's gonna get the 4k treatment :D Man I can't wait to dive back into that world on my 4k TV.
