Amazon say that those who placed their Xbox One pre-orders after August 15th will not have the guarantee that they would be on receiving an Xbox One at launch.
Amazon UK has already sold out of its entire allocation of Xbox One’s Day One Edition, so they are warning customers that whoever placed a pre-order for the Standard Edition after August 15 “will be received after (the) release date“. Well, I don’t know about you, but I kind of figured it would be like this anyway.
Amazon also mentioned that they are out of stock of the Day One Edition Xbox One console and will not be taking more orders. The Standard Edition is fine still and they will “ship orders as soon as we receive inventory”. It always pays to get your pre-order in early.
