Will NEVER happen. Manufacturers don't meet demand on purpose to have every one in a fever pitch of getting one after they sell out. Like someone said earlier, it's amazing what people will do to "have it now".

Aren't you guys being stupid? If you preorder you get the "limited edition" version of x1 right? So you can sell it for much more than just 100$ profit

Xbox One has a special controller... nothing else. PS4 launch edition is the exact same but with a guarantee you'll get yours at launch.

Pre-orders outside of launch editions can't guarantee you'll get your system if they can't keep up with demand.

Amazon is all booked and GameStops are likely going to be sold out. But I just preordered a PS4 through Best Buy. The only downside is I have confirmed (before purchasing) that you are charged NOW for the item. Amazon and GameStop allowed you to just put down deposits. So basically, once you preorder through BestBuy, you're stuck with it.

Thats a 66.6%-100% ROI. Show me another investment strategy with those type of immediate returns

Correct me if I am wrong, but the only way to guarantee you will get one on launch day is to pre-order a launch edition, correct?

I wonder if Amazon will make more launch editions available, or maybe other retailers.

If Amazon get more launch day allocations, they can potentially make more launch orders available, or bump normal buyers to launch-day.

No sir. If you go to bestbuy.com and click Order Status on the top right, a list of your orders will show up. Click on the order number and on the left side under the quantity number there's a cancel item box. Check it and you can cancel your order.

I think I might cancel my order of XBone. Been looking at the ones they have for sale on ebay. There are hundreds of XBone's up for bid but VERY few bids on them. Also, they XBone Launch Edition is back up on Amazon. Don't know if they got more Launch editions or if people are canceling their orders. My guess is the latter.

The pre-order is still open, but it tought to drop 4 bills plus tax, now and have to wait five months to see returns. Especially if its going to be only 100-200 dollars.
