    I just picked up a copy of Forza 5 as a xmas present from my wife as she didn't know what to get me. The thing is I don't have an xbox one as yet. I know you are probably wondering what a fool but there is a method in my madness. By me getting the game that can only be played on the xbox one I will now have to get one, without any issue....oh gee....lol

    I preordered the LCE version and got lucky and picked up an Xbox 1 on real ease day. I think I've seen a bunch people go your route

    The good news is it's well worth the wait.

    Same boat here. Wanted the LCE, but wasn't waiting to finally find a One before buying a copy, so I got it first. Still waiting on that One, though....

    Yeah, it took me a couple of weeks to find a console after getting the game as they were in pretty short supply around here. Hope you get sorted for the Xmas break.

    The LCE is also well worth it in terms of freebies and accelerated career advancement.

    I was expecting to wait and the hand of fate saw me get my One on the second day. Forza 5 isn't being needlessly hyped on here. It really is that good on track.

    I cant find any cheaper deals on amazon. If you find one can you post it here?

    Yes the sales wont balance out for a couple months until Microsoft actually produces all the X1 systems that have been ordered.

    I didn't say there were any. They've completely run out of the basic package like most everyone else. The item you linked to was a small or private seller attempting to make profit.

    Right that's what I thought. The TRUE X1 sales wont be available until sometime next year when Microsoft finally makes enough consoles to keep up with the demand. They have actually sold more than they have produced.

    Keep an eye on your local GameStop.

    I did a walkup purchase of a basic $499 unit on Tuesday evening I believe.

    The Houston GameStop's are getting regular XBone deliveries each week - have the guy call you when the truck arrives.

    There are still "true" X - ones for sale if you know where to look or get lucky when the next order is in. I just finally ordered mine this morning through the Base Exchange. :D

    Just keep your eyes peeled. Stores are still getting them in stock regularly, they just run out quickly. There's actually websites out there that scrape sites and notify you when they become available for purchase.

    I got mine from Newegg - they run out pretty quick but seem to have the replenished every few days. So far digging it - the snap feature is a lot more useful than I expected it to be.

    Are you sure? When I clicked on his link the cheapest seller was still asking for 729 bucks.

    [EDIT] The UK site says January 8 but uShopMall in Maine, USA has them at the "regular" £429 price plus about a hundred quid shipping. Curiouser and curiouser.

    Just picked up an Xbox one at JB Hi FI, only 16 left, other places like EB were sold out. So very happy now. :)

    It's Tow Mater 66, and you'll likely find me at the rear of the field!

    OK, what's the difference between these $500 and $700 units?

    I think the "XBone" was locked in at $500. What's this then?

    Speculator profit due to limited availability of the console. Unless you can find it in a store or online at the original price I would wait until January 8 when Amazon get new stock.
