I have both consoles pre ordered at Amazon. Does anybody know if you get PUR points at GS when buying Amazon gift cards? I'm considering buying the gift cards from GS and using them towards my amazon preorders, thus getting both Amazon prime shipping as well as GS membership points.

 

You do indeed. For example, a couple weeks ago I got 2,750 points for buying $250 worth of kindle cards.

I noticed in the OP the links at certain sites for 12 month XBL with Killer Instinct.  I don't see a listing on Amazon and I am trying to figure out why?  I order all my stuff through Amazon and I have a day one XBOX one preordered with them.

 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.

It's not worth it, it is just a character. Just buy live for $35 when it is on sale. That character cant possibly be worth $25.

That is horrendous news actually.  Now the horrible sound quality of people on the mic will continue.  Well at least I won't sound like garbage to others.  Ever since the Xbox 360 came out the voice has been terrible.  It's my least favorite thing about the Xbox 360, and they were finally fixing it with the Xbox One...until this news.

I am not wanting it for a character, I am wanting it for the game.  I am confused on how we are to get Killer Instinct.

 

Is it not included with the 12 month XBL that is said to come with the XBOX ONE DAY ONE console or whatever it is called?

The game is a free download.  You get one free character.  The Day One XBL purchase gets you one extra character.  Jaashuaa's point was to wait for the sale and just buy the extra character.  It would be cheaper.

Oh it's a free download, see I didn't know that and have been having problems trying to find out information about it.

 

Thanks guys/gals for your help and information on this.

Basically, it's the freemium model.  You have to pay extra for the full game.

Everyone gets a demo which just has Jango, single player, practice mode, and multiplayer. You can buy the full game from there, or just buy the characters you want.

I have credit from gift card's on Amazon. I can always order the Xbox One and if I change my mind, cancel it, and have it all refunded, right? Just like any Amazon purchase before it ships

So apparently Microsoft did another 180.  New consoles will now include headsets.  LOL.  Someone can't make up their minds....

Can't make up their minds -- or making a wise business move? This is only bad news for the PS4 fanboy, gives them one less thing to rail about.

Doesn't matter.  Over the past few months, it's clear they made many wrong decisions.  While money-wise this may entice more sales, I think it speaks poorly to the minds and the thinking process at MS.  Who's to say that this same poor track record doesn't extend to their decisions in the hardware, software, or infrastructure-side of things?  Just my 2 cents...

Anyone else disappointed that they still cannot figure out how to get rid of the damn power brick? The system is gigantic already and they still could not fit it in. On a good note, I am glad to see that they decided to throw in the headset.

No, you might as well keep it for when the original headset eventually breaks

Yes, it is especially annoying when Sony has shown it can be done.

 

Also, why the hell Microsoft cannot include a built in rechargeable battery in their controller in this day and age, when even Nintendo does this, I have no idea.
