From September 2 to today, xbox one pre-order increased ~390, total number~ 103168
MS should just pull their resources from Japan and give us Chinese some real benefits.
So they have more pre-orders then they plan on shipping in the first month?
Who said(guessed) that MS planned on shipping 100k first month in China?
“100k are being sent at launch.”
I got that from a thread about Xbox China here yesterday. So after doing a quick search on the web, that number seems to be the general consensus as well (Plus Xbox fans on this site are under the same impression). It’s not 100% confirmed but then again for all we know those pre-order numbers above are a wash as well.
Foreigners' consensus means nothing. They know nothing about China. Someone even believed that ￥4999 crap from Sina China LMAO.
I dont think 100k is real cause some of us pre-ordered two/get our friends to order 1 from MS store just to finish the Xbox Tribe's tasks in order to get coupons for xbox accessary&games. But if those who ordered multiple dont cancel their duplicate orders before September 23, MS have to prepare shipments for these orders as well.
