What comes with the Xbox One “Day One Edition”?

xbox one white bg

Microsoft officially announced launch details regarding the Xbox One earlier today, and there’s a lot to take in. We know it’s coming this November, we know it’ll be a cool $500, and Amazon is already accepting pre-sales for the thing. Microsoft also shed more light on what the “Day One Edition” would consist of that we picked up on before the press conference.

Those who pre-order the device for delivery on the first day will get:

  • Limited edition controller
  • Token to unlock an exclusive “Day One” achievement
  • Special packaging for the console
  • Special decal to commemorate the launch.
  • Potentially more

We’re not quite sure how all of this looks just yet, but it doesn’t cost a dime extra. If you were considering buying the Xbox One on launch date then there’s no reason you shouldn’t want all of these goods. If you’ve already made your mind up on whether or not you want this console you can head to Amazon and pre-order yours today. Don’t forget — Amazon won’t charge you until it ships!

        THe whole thing can be considered Marketing.. Keep tabs on what you watch, what you play, who is in the room when you watch or play and forced to check in at least once a day to report it all back to Microsoft so they can sell the info to their advertisers and make money off of you. All this for you spending $500 on their product. Such a deal. Well in this game of Deal or No Deal I say NO DEAL

          Facebook sells your info to marketing and advertisers, your phone company does, your supermarket discount shopper card does, your email and internet provider does. And NSA is listening to our calls and reading our emails.

      Even when I’m positive, I still get downvoted. Oh well. :)

    Unless the “Potentially More” includes a DRM/Spy shutoff switch so people can actually enjoy games on the console instead of worrying what “data” is being collected while they are using the console then forget it.

    Special packaging, special decal, and achievement. fail

  • NightAngel79

    If after first day, everyone has to pay the same price but they don’t get those couple (admittedly small) things then I don’t see what everyone is complaining about. Something for Nothing :)

  • Ducked

    $200 more than Wii U
    $100 more than PS4
    Less games then both consoles

    = Fail!
