My apologies if this has been hashed out in another thread.  I did try to search for it before posting.

 

I am considering getting a Day One Edition XBOX One.  I was going to pass, but when I heard that they were throwing in a free year of XBL, that sweetened the deal enough that it pushed me over the fence and I bit.  Now I see that there are sites saying that this was a mis-communication and I do not see it listed explicitly in the ads for the day one edition on amazon, etc.  Looking over the different forums, however, I see people who are posting in tweets (reportedly) from XBOX support where the 12 months of XBL is confirmed.

 

(for those interested and want to look it up, someone using @XboxSupport3 tweeted to someone named @SpeedyBlueDude that it was in the deal on June 10th and it was re-tweeted)

 

Has Microsoft put out any official clarifications?  The story was widely reported but then seemingly walked back.  Right now it is just confusing.  If anyone has anything official (not speculation, I am not trying to bait the trolls) that they could point me to, I would appreciate it.  If it is not part of the deal and I also have to purchase the headset, that may very well push me back to waiting.

 

Thanks

Totally. It's probably going to be 5 gamerscores too.

No, it'll probably be 0 Gamerscore, like the pre-order one (might be the same achievement even)
