Wow this has been a pretty lousy launch day for me. My Day One edition from Amazon won't be here until Monday because of a late train (yeah, seriously) and my copy of Ryse from Best Buy won't be here until Tuesday because...well I don't really know why. It was supposed to be here today. I guess I'll just sit here and stare at my copy of AC4.
Have you contacted customer service to verify that they actually sent you a Day One edition? I talked to three CS reps today, the second one told me I would not be getting a Day One edition, as pre-ordered, but instead a standard edition. The third CS rep assured me that I was definitely getting a Day One edition. I do not know what to believe, but am pretty worried (and will likely not be ordering consoles from Amazon in the future).

Welcome to the club I guess, except my preorder was Newegg and not Amazon. I upgraded to overnight shipping so I'd have it this weekend but my FedEx tracking number has just been stuck at "Shipment information sent to FedEx" since last night, so I'm guessing it'll show up on Monday at this point even though it had been guaranteed to be today. Then to top it off I found out that all Newegg orders, even all original preorders going back to when they went up in June, are only getting standard editions, not Day One's...
The same sort of shipping delay happened last week with Newegg's PS4 preorders, only then they justified it due to some accident on a nearby freeway in LA that prevented FedEx from picking up the packages. The One is shipping from Newegg's TN warehouse though and thus far I have no clue what the holdup could be. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me?
At least Newegg didn't pour salt in the wounds by shipping Day One editions to people who ordered on the 20th. The part that gets me is that Amazon actually had Day One editions. My co-worker who ordered on June 19th got his - I ordered on the 10th. :(

Well, Amazon fucked up like crazy. A co-worker ordered a Day One Xbox One five or six days after pre-orders opened and got his this morning. Meanwhile, mine is "Shipping Soon" (and somehow still expected to arrive today before 8:00pm. Keep in mind this is shipping to an office that I did not plan to be at past 6:00 (our Amazon deliveries typically come at 10am).
But the real kicker - Amazon couldn't get me a Day One Edition due to "overwhelming" demand. Keep in mind I pre-ordered the minute they were available on June 10th. This is unacceptable - so now I'm stuck waiting at my office all day (for an order that couldn't possibly make it here by 8:00) and I'm not even getting the item I ordered (they've changed it to a standard edition).
