    Copy and paste from another forum.

    Today's Xbox One hilarity.

    Amazon preorders: Amazon charges you when your order ships.
    Xbox One preorders: Microsoft charges you *now*.

    Xbox One buyers beware -- Microsoft is holding your money hostage

    Betanews wrote:Yesterday, my colleague Alan Buckingham reported on the Xbox One availability and pricing. I wasn't sure if I wanted one but I thought it would be a good idea to pre-order. I have failed to pre-order consoles in the past with devastating results. Many Christmas holidays were ruined by the failure to secure the newest console (I know -- first world problems). And so, I decided to pre-order the Xbox One -- just in case.

    I headed to the online Microsoft Store, with debit card in hand. I went to the pre-order page and started the process. I was shocked to find that Microsoft wanted me to pay the full $500 (plus tax) up front! Keep in mind, this console will not launch until November. Paying full price now, in June, is ludicrous. In the past, I had pre-ordered consoles by putting down a small deposit.

    So the XboX One just became the XboX 180?

    Backlash aside, they probably reacted to the pre-order numbers, it looked like ps4 was outselling them 5 to 1 on the us market.

    I still don't like everything that Microsoft has done and just going back on everything they said doesn't make me want the Xbox One. Basically Microsoft is admitting that what they were doing was wrong and that's good, but it took them basically a full month and now they seem untrustworthy. How do we know they won't just up and change their policies again? I am honestly biased against Microsoft though, even if I've had an Xbox 360 for four years, I just don't like their business strategies.

    The full announcement for the reversal is here:

    http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update


    I'm happy to hear they are backing off, I dislike the "we still think we are right" tone but alas, what can be done!




    Either way, I believe in voting with your wallet, and Sony didn't try it on so they get my money

    I'm hoping the damage is done. Microsoft don't deserve to sell well after attempting to pull all that BS and should be punished for it.

    PS4 all the way, the exclusives are better anyways. I'm not buying a console just for friggin halo lol

    Personally I think it now being region free and the removal of the 24 hour check in is more interesting than it allowing used games.  The only advantage for used games in my mind is for a legacy collection.  If Microsoft keep game prices low and make every game available online, people won't have to go to stores to get affordable games.

    Well ****...just when I thought it looked my choice for a next gen console was all but set in stone Microsoft has to pull a last ditch effort to try and win me back...and son of a *****, it's kinda working.

    I actually went over the E3 press conferences again to see the exclusives for each system....and son of a ***** the Xbox One actually has the better line up....***.

    Guys....I really hate to say this...I really truly do...but I might be getting an Xbone....

    The damage has been done.

    Doing a massive clusterf*ck and just saying "We´re sorry" is just not enough
