Rumor: GameStop no longer taking XBox One pre-orders


 Rumor: GameStop no longer taking XBox One pre-orders
topic by Jesszman - 06-18-2013, 08:33 PM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


Shortly after Microsoft and Sony held their E3 press conferences on June 10, GameStop had pre-order SKUs in their system for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 respectively. With price points and launch windows announced, both systems were available for consumers to reserve almost immediately. Just over a week later, the pre-order SKU for Xbox One has been removed from GameStop’s system corporate-wide without explanation.

As of this morning, GameStop management has confirmed that they are not currently taking reserves on Xbox One. No official explanation has been given for the removal of the SKU at this time, and GameStop has not clarified whether or not they will re-open the reserve list at a later time. PlayStation 4 is still available for reserve, and Sony recently announced that GameStop has pledged to buy every PlayStation 4 they can get their hands on.

Their credibility takes a hit when they say "Rumor, I heard...unnamed source" They just turn into any another analyst such as that douchebag Patcher.

It's not like everyone is taking their pre-orders down. GameStop doesn't get nearly as much stock as the likes of Amazon, Best Buy and Wal-Mart, and they always cease pre-sales when they have no more guaranteed units. @ trying to make it seem like GameStop is blocking pre-sales because of ESRAM yield issues (even though it's still a RUMOR, no matter how credible it may seem, isn't that what you always say when the rumor is about Sony jizzman?)

Another non-story.

indeed, which is why this is a rumor. But to completely remove the SKU from the system? Either they're getting a new one or something's up.

It would make sense if all they were selling up to this point were Day One Editions. Regular editions would be an entirely different SKU.

I was wondering about that too. Why the store and not the website? Could they be shutting those down soon too?
