    I’m glad the PS4 is releasing before the X1. It gives me time to sell the 2 I have reserved on eBay and pay for the X1’s.

    But it’s September….Shouldn’t shipping to retailers wait? (unless these are review units)

      No. These shipments are going to the huge stores like Walmart, Amazon, and other countries.

      These stores need it early for stock purposes, and to get ready to re-ship on time.
      These shipments aren’t for the suburb Gamestop, those come later.

      These are being shipped to the supply warehouses for the retailers, not directly to the stores in most cases.

    Will the xbox one come with a free download of Fifa 14 in North America? It doesnt seem fair to include it with Europe pre orders and not north america.

      Europe is more of a battleground for the Xbox brand. Here in the States we receive far more from the brand through LIVE than Europe does. So them getting a free game at the launch of a new console seems proper, to me anyway.

        The UK has nearly 20% higher cost of living for everything. You can’t compare US prices directly with UK prices.

        Just like how you can’t compare prices in south Africa with prices in the U.S.

        Two completely different economies, wages, cost of living, etc, etc.

        The cost of Xbox related stuff in the UK is exactly inline with their overall cost of living.

        Indeed, and they are correct. Remember that UK price already includes tax. The US price does not include tax.

        Depends on where you get it. If you get it from Amazon for most states, no tax.

        Not for me in California though. Amazon gets taxed unfortunately.

      • Shane Nokes

        Maybe, maybe not. For Amazon you only don’t get charged tax if you live in a state with no physical presence, and even then according to law you’re supposed to report that purchase and pay the local sales tax yourself, but almost no one does that.

      Yeah you’re right. It’s unfair, I guess they should also charge you $659 USD for your Xbox One since that’s what people in Europe are paying. Fair is fair right?

        The average wage paid in some countries with the euro is higher as well. Not to mention that includes tax in the price. In the US that $499 price doesn’t include tax. My pre-order (including) tax here in Washington State (home of MS) is $547.49 with tax and shipping.

        So when translated to dollars it is still $100 US less. However, factoring in wage differences, better consumer protections in Europe, and the game being packed in it makes sense to have that price difference.

        The game being packed in it? What kind of garbage argument is that. You didn’t have that trash to throw in Europe’s face 2-weeks ago. Europe’s government claims 35% of GDP, don’t give me that wage difference nonsense.

      • Shane Nokes

        The game has value, which raises the price as compared to versions of the console where the game is not packed in.

        As regards claiming taxes versus wage…that happens here as well on top of sales tax.

        Don’t try to act all self righteous about this, and don’t act like we’ve interacted before in an argument of some sort that you won, because I don’t even know who you are so stand down before you look even more stupid.

        What are you talking about right now? Here you are again, 3 weeks ago, what was your argument when Fifa 14 wasn’t included?

        Of course you get taxes in America too. Who said you didn’t? But your country doesn’t eat up to 35% of your GDP does it? Your country has the third lowest tax/GDP ratio in the developed world. When you have to pay $15 USD for a gallon of gas, THEN you can hold hands with Microsoft and say $499 = 499€

        Grr my reply didn’t show up so I’ll try to say it again.

        If I said something 3 weeks ago then post proof. Disqus is showing that I haven’t posted anything on the site here in over a month according to the history on my account.

        As regards the rest, we also have a much worse medical system than countries that pay a higher portion of their GDP, a far worse educational system, and some of the basics in how we treat our poor are just appalling. Even our minimum wage isn’t enough to pay for the basic cost of a place to live and utilities, let alone food.

        Also you keep changing if it was 2 or 3 weeks ago. I doubt you’ll come back with anything showing that we’ve had a previous interaction on here.

        He’s referring to 3 weeks ago Fifa wasn’t part of the bundle, read.

        Possibly…but two of his comments have been pretty direct with this being said:

        ” You didn’t have that trash to throw in Europe’s face 2-weeks ago.”

        I wasn’t commenting two weeks ago so I wasn’t throwing trash anywhere.

        &

        “Here you are again, 3 weeks ago, what was your argument when Fifa 14 wasn’t included?”

        I wasn’t commenting 3 weeks ago…so I don’t see where the ‘here you are again’ can come into play since I didn’t comment one way or the other.

        I am commenting on what is currently in the bundle. There’s a game being put in the bundle, which helps the pricing make more sense.

        I don’t see where I’m a jerk for pointing out that the price differential isn’t as large at this point due to a game now being included in the regions where it is more expensive, and pointing out that saying we only pay $499 in the US isn’t true since we also have tax that is due that isn’t included in what he states is our price…but tax is included in what is stated as his price.

        So it drops the price difference to around $100 US, but there’s also a game included for them so it makes it more around a $30-40 difference.

        I can’t help if facts offend him.

      Next year: Infamous, Destiny, Witcher, The Division, Final Fantasy XV, Dragon Age (because I’m that beaten housewife that can’t stay away), and maybe Thief and Mad Max.

      I totally started ordering a bunch of games but realized even taking launch week off I probably wouldn’t get through more than 3-4 so I ordered BF4, AC4 and NFS Rivals. Watchdogs and Forza are on he bubble for me depending on the following:
      1) I ordered BF4 for the 360 and doing the 360->XB1 upgrade from Gamestop based on my guess that the console was coming out late in November (which is now true) so finishing the campaign on the 360 may free me up for another title (Watchdogs).
      2) I really want to know about the Forza game style. I bought Horizon during the last sale to see if I liked it enough to get 5 and loved it, but then was told that the actual Forza x games are completely different play style so I’ve been waiting for some actual extended gameplay video.

      At launch Im getting DR3, AC4, CoD, Lego Marvel, Ryse, Forza 5 and BF4 as digital downloads day one. Kind of on the fence for Ryse at the moment though. I also want Crimson Dragon as I love the Panzer series. Also downloading the free versions of Spark and Killer Instinct.

      Next year I’m getting Titanfall, Destiny, The Division, Witcher 3 and Watch Dogs. I’m sure there will be some XBLA games tossed in and some other games we aren’t aware of.

      I also have a LE Forza 5 for my son for his bday on Christmas.

        The most important thing for preventing RROD , is a lot of brace points. That’s why really want to get a good look at the system board, to see how many screw holes are in it. The original problem is caused not only by insufficient cooling, but by insufficient anchor points, which let the board flex as it heated and cooled. I’m pretty sure the first problem is taken care of, and I’m sure that $1 billion taught anybody a lesson on the second.

        Like

      • Nick Peck

        The cooling was fine, it’s just that the heat would cause the cheap / miss mixed solder to re-liquefy and lose connection. That was the main problem with the RROD. I fixed a few to make some easy money years back and all you really had to do was reheat the board and make sure the solder points were reconnected.

      • bickle2

        No I was contraction and expansion due to heat. This solder may have been cheap, but that was the reason for the broken connections was warped boards breaking traces
