Hey all,

If you've preordered your day one edition rough amazon, double check your order. After months of estimated delivery being the 22nd, it now says the 23rd......I did not receive any emails telling me either.......so it looks like I'll be getting my Day One edition on day 2....poor show amazon!

Lat

Edit: so after logging into amazon, it now let me change my delivery method to expedited, now saying 22nd as eta......still free p&p though.....

So amazon buyers, double check your orders!

I have checked mine and I am still the 22nd. Did you pay for p+p or did you go super saver?

Still cant believe they haven't charged anyone yet for there console. Looks like they are charging/dispatching the day before launch. I can see a lot of tears coming.

My order is saying expecting to dispatch today and delivery expected on the 22nd.
I have also checked my bank account and my available funds is still the same so I guess they have not requested payment yet.

I am still classed as not yet dispatched, est delivery 22nd. I just hope my bank plays ball tomorrow and doesn't block/with hold payment. There isn't any reason to. Worst case from my bank was that I ordered a rare hd-dvd for 25 from xploited cinema ( yeah I know what your thinking ) and they blocked the payment and before the day was done had cancelled my bank card. It messed with the rest of my pre orders that I had to cancel, which were on offer with discount codes etc.

Ordered my XB1 August 25 direct from Microsoft Store, order never completed as when I had all my details entered & clicked "Place Order" the system crashed & no emails were ever received, waited until 28 August before contacting MS & they assured me the order was not completed & was null/void & if I wanted an XB1 I had to place a new order, fair enough, placed my order, received my confirmation email & all was good... Until Monday when I looked at my bank statement & Microsoft were taking 2 payments for 429.99 (a call to my bank confirmed these were not just authorisation payments but were on the brink of taking my ), again contacted MS who assured me I only had 1 machine on order for delivery on Fri... I have cancelled one of those payments but am getting concerned now as my order still showing as "Order being Processed" when really it should be on its way today or at least "preparing for despatch"...

I used the Amazon chat earlier. I was assured that my Xbox One will be sent on the 21st and arrive on the 22nd.

I chose expedited delivery when I placed the order.

I emailed them and they replied telling me it "is a known issue and would be resolved"

I'm using expedited so I better get it release day!

Just wish I had ordered from Amazon when I had my chance of the Day One Edition... After my earlier post I was delighted to get my despatch email this morning... Latest status update tonight is "package delayed" (was scheduled for 1 to 3 business days delivery)... A 3rd party seller (Amazon) are making a much better job of delivery than Microsoft themselves

My regular postie just dropped of my xbox one. Sweeet.

Lets see how long, dpd/game take.

The big question is - do I get batteries with the controller?

Yes 2 duracells, cant see the battery life being that great if the are not shipping cheapo brands

If I recall they shipped the 360 with Duracell batteries too and it had good battery life.

Enjoy your console while the rest of us wait

... and I wish I hadn't.

I know people who have already had theirs delivered by DPD, having chosen the free delivery option.

Mine is being delivered by "Amazon Logistics". Some Googling found that this may actually just be "APLE", which Amazon uses for Prime... and from what I have read so far their reputation rivals that of Yodel


I only chose Expedited because the original delivery estimate was the 25th, so I changed the delivery and it became the 22nd. If I had realised that it would then change to the 22nd for everyone regardless of courier I'd have left it with the free delivery.
