Best Buy

Best Buy will have the Xbox One available for purchase with midnight store openings on 11/22 (12:01 AM on 11/22 -- so you want to be inline on 11/21, otherwise you will be looking at the XBox 360 on the shelves).  BBY has its website still accepting Xbox One pre-orders for both the Day One Edition of the console and the Xbox One with Call of Duty: Ghosts bundle.  The standalone Xbox One Day One Edition costs $499.99, giving you the console, Kinect and a controller.  The Call of Duty-included bundle is also branded a Day One Edition console and comes with CoD Ghosts, an extra "commemorative" controller, and a 12-month subscription to Xbox Live. It will cost you though @ $679.96! 

 

Walmart

Walmart is also accepting pre-orders at a slightly lower price than its competitors. The console itself is $499.96, but this is only available as an in-store pre-order. Paying 10 percent in person is required.  Walmart's flexible "Solution Bundle" comes in @ $617.96 and comes with a game (from a choice of 21 titles) and an extra controller.

 

Amazon

The online store is still selling the "Standard" non-commemorative version of the console for the same price, but won't be available until Dec. 31, 2013.  I guess that will depend on how much units Microsoft can crank out from their plant in China. 

 

GameStop

GameStop is directing customers who are holding out for additional pre-orders for launch day to sign up for email alerts under the banner of its "Xbox One First to Know List."  This doesn't mean that you will get a unit, so probably best to consider the other options listed here.

 

Target

Target is still selling Xbox One bundles that include a game and an extra controller for $619.97.  The launch game choices are Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Watch Dogs.

 

Kmart

Kmart claims to have Xbox One "in stock," and the system is $499.99 at Kmart, and it's the only option available.

 

Sears

Sears matches the Kmart price of $499.99 with free shipping for the console.

 

Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store's website has the XBox one available for $499.99. No deals and no special pre-order bundles.

Cant wait for them game reviews to start rolling in!  Anyone wanna venture a guess as to availability for Christmas?  Obviously both consoles will be scarce immediately after launch (good luck even pre-ordering a PS4 right now) but will they remain hard to find approaching December 25th?

I've already witnessed the poaching. Know 3 different people with pre-orders of 10 or more.

Sounds like there will be stock for walk ups.  Interesting:

I want this tool to be right in the middle of recording when the Microsoft police break down his door, reclaim all the equipment, and we can taste the tears streaming down his face. People who break NDAs are the biggest morons in the world.

I'm going to wait.  I pre-ordered the PS4.   I'll wait on the XBOX One, to see if anything compels me to do it.  I don't see that happening for a while.

The rumor right now is that the video is a "viral" leak from Microsoft to drum up interest in their console.  Is Ryse even done being developed yet?  There's absolutely zero gameplay in the video and nothing that we haven't already seen.

 

So yeah, it's most likely fake.  If it WAS real, MS would have done something about it by now.  Anyone remember how they reacted to people playing Halo games online before release?

That's super lame, if that's the case. I haven't seen any gameplay for Ryse either, so that does make since.

Good point, it wouldn't surprise me at all if this were a phony leak. Then again, those sometimes backfire when people realize how dumb the concept is. :)

If that video was a M$ ploy, it makes me even less inclined to buy their box than I already am.

I'm betting phony leak. Someone who is willing to break an NDA and post wouldn't be stupid enough to actually turn the camera on himself, thus giving the world a look at the guy who can't abide by NDAs...

Never underestimate the ability of a random person's need for online attention to overcome his need to not be a royal dumbass.

KI looks great, starts at free, $20 gets you all characters, $40 gets you all characters and costumes, $60 gets you the pin collecting special edition.

Interesting business model. I very much dislike what EA (and others) have done with certain titles, like sports, where you pay $59.99 for the game and then extras on top of that. KI starts at free, and $40 gets you essentially the whole game minus the pins and artwork.

 

Have to admit I haven't played KI since its heydey in the arcade. It was also second fiddle to Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat (so is that actually third fiddle?) but I wasn't as much of a hater as others. I enjoyed it for what it was. If they've managed to capture that original fun in the updated version, $40 isn't too much to ask for this title.
