Does the Xbox One Day One Edition come with one free year of XBL Gold?

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.

Kidding. It's nice that someone would take the time to completely help like that.

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)
