Who's pre-ordered an Xbox One?

One of the big things I'm looking forward to is being able to control my TV via voice with HDMI-CEC.

You can get Fifa 14 bundled with the preorder now, although I hate it!

I'm looking at pre-ordering one this week though none of the early bundles are taking my fancy. Pretty poor launch titles as it stands.

I'll probably go for shopto since apparently they allow you to add money to your account that comes off of your next purchase, so I can put a couple of hundred away over the nexy couple of months so that £500 odds doesn't come out of my pay at the end of November.

A preorder via Microsoft may 'hold' the money on your Credit card, but it won't take it until the console ships.

I would have preferred something like Forza to be with the launch, but I can't complain I get a fancy 'Day One' controller :pancake: :roll:

That looks and sounds fantastic. Im defo getting an xbox one....er.....when they become available again as I never pre ordered. Never tempted to go ps4, not saying there bad as honestly Ive seen NOTHING about the ps4 in the slightest!( apart from the crappy controller) Xbox just seems fantastic, all the things shown in that vid plus the games coming out for it look top notch.

Did you not order the day one edition with the Forza code then? Or was that added at a later date?

played with the idea but Ill wait till something that I want jumps out at me.

I suspect theyll probably make Halo5 exclusively XboxOne and not release a 360 version which will probably prompt me to go out and buy a "One" the day the games released.

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
!
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

It isn't the "game console" features that are luring me with this.

It is as they intended. An all in one machine. a bloody good looking example too. I like the record feature, I wonder how long video's you can actually record?

Will depend on resolution and hard drive space.

According to the Microsoft Store, if you order one online you won't get it 'til December 31st at the earliest.

I would have preferred something like Forza to be with the launch, but I can't complain I get a fancy 'Day One' controller :pancake: :roll:

I pre-ordered mine directly from the Microsoft Store, they only had Fifa bundled. The Forza bundle was from other retailers. It also wasn't available when I pre-ordered, it was Fifa or nothing.
