That's awesome, Neo! Running at least 2 miles a day is totally do-able too. I run a 5k jog two to three times a week, and bump up the distance on one Saturday or Sunday. I don't have a treadmill so jogging and gaming sounds intense but fun.

probably wanted to take your preorder


Maybe so...

Can anyone completely confirm that with the preorder card from target I am 100% guaranteed a console on day one.

Nothing is ever 100%, but the card states that they will hold a system for you for a number of days.

dont see how anyone could 100% garantee it. if they have 30 preorders that doesnt mean they will all come in. MS might send only like 3-4 because of other areas needing some too


Why save the world, when everything in it is falling apart?

My card says 4 of 5 on the back of it. Just trying to decide if I can safely cancel my Amazon Preorder.

I'd ask the store manager, he'd know how they're going to handle it at that particular store. However, I would expect that since my store had 10, and others had 20, that individual stores are getting a number of cards based upon how many they are assured of having. I'd think you're safe.

Aaron Greenberg has come out and said,

 

"all Day One pre-orders globally will be fulfilled as planned at launch."

 

He called this article inaccurate when asked by long-time Xbox community leader Godfree:

so why don't you order the standard off Amazon?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Found a target 20 miles from my house with one card left. Just went and picked it up. I have had one preordered since June. 10 from Amazon but on Tuesday they started charging tax in my state so I am gonna cancel there because I have a red card.

This Target card absolutely guarantees me a console day one nov 22 correct? Just want to absolutely make sure before I cancel my Amazon preorder.

On another note, the dude at target did everything he possibly could to talk me out of the X1. He said that PS4 just announced 8 new exclusives this week and that the X1 was basically a 360 with a new case and that it didn't even have any new parts inside. He also said that it would never do 3D gaming. He tried a third time to tell me that the PS4 had awesome tv integration and could stream old games. So shocked he didn't talk about DRM too. I told him 5 times I wanted the X1 but apparently it was his civic duty to absolutely make sure that I was sure. Ridiculous.

Anyway happy to have a day one edition reserved again haha

 

There's a girl that works in electronics at a local walmart, that I know only from just random chit chat with her, that stopped me the other day asking if I was still getting skylanders stuff.  Told her no, not right now, just bought some disney things though.  Then she asked about the xbox one, and what I was getting.  I told her both, and she went off on a rant about how the xbox one would only let you play new games, always had to be online, and it was leading to the death of gamestop blah blah.  I really didn't have the time or heart to tell her she was wrong, so just kinda let it lie.  But that goes to show you how informed average retail workers are.

From what I was told at my bestbuy yesterday is they do have a list.  Whoever pre ordered first will be getting a guaranteed console.  The person I was talking to told me they dont know how many console they will be receiving either microsoft hasnt informed them of anything and wont until its closer to time

My console is half way paid off now. 

 

I am debating on doing the upgrade program with Battlefield or just wait for the Next-Gen release... I think I will cave and buy both that and Ghosts on release and on Nov 22 haha

 

How about all of you guys?

Batman Arkham Origins

Fable Anniversary

Dark Souls 2

Lords of Shadow 2

 

All games so far that I really want that aren't getting a next gen version yet.

 

Lots of X1 games that won't be on the 360 of course. To me Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Crimson Dragon and KI are must haves as long as they review well. Everything else not so much.

 

Back on topic: If you can't find X1's try Target and Wal-Mart pre-orders still. They should be taking them till they run out. I haven't heard on the final date to pre-order yet but I'd imagine soon.
