GAME is forcing a £615 bundle on customers who wish to secure an Xbox One Day One Edition in time for launch day, but have yet to do so.

In an update posted on its website today, GAME said that it "only [has] one Day One Edition Bundle left, which includes the Day One Edition console and FIFA 14 download, plus the Call of Duty Ghosts GAME Exclusive Prestige Edition.

"This is the only way you can now guarantee your Day One Console."

The bundle carries a hefty £614.98 price tag – almost £200 more expensive than Xbox One's £429.99 RRP.

GAME re-opened pre-orders for Xbox One's Day One Edition last week after doing "some number wrangling", before warning that it was the "last chance to pre-order [an Xbox One] for launch".

The retailer says that it does not believe the bundle will "remain [in stock] for long", and that remaining stock in-store "will vary from store to store".

Customers not interested in securing a console for launch can pre-order a Standard Edition Xbox One for £429.99.

Other online retailers, including the Microsoft Store and Currys, are still guaranteeing Xbox One consoles in time for launch day at £429.99.

GAME announced details of a next-gen trade-in offer earlier today, guaranteeing a minimum £40 credit on current-gen titles when upgrading to the next-gen version.

Xbox One launches this November.

Well I haven't heard about any pre-order issues from the PS4!

If that is the only edition that GAME have left in stock, that's beyond their control, and up to Microsoft to allocate more stock. I don't feel GAME are to blame for this. Don't want to pay the high price? Should have ordered earlier, or elsewhere.

Yes but it still costs what it costs. The main problem here is that GAME are selling it as a bundle in the first place, the price it self adds up with that stupid COD game. It would be nice if they decided to brake this bundle apart and took the prestige edition away from it. I'm more than sure people would rather a cheaper console than an overpriced COD edition.

Don't worry i'm not sticking up for GAME i hate the toss pots these days.

I think what people are annoyed about is that there are Day one edition's still out there, but you are forced to buy extras you don't want for it now like Shopto are doing.
They are out there but companies are lying and taking even more of a piss on us gamers dude.
Not everyone can afford it at that price, the console alone is expensive enough at 430 quid.

Like it comes with Kinnect and you don't need it now.

I think you are all missing something. Part of the extra cost is because COD:G is the prestige edition, it has an actual 1080p HD camera with it, season pass etc. Also the PS4 with the prestige edition is £534.

The prestige edition alone is £179.99

Robbing bastards, as if the console isn't expensive enough. ***** GAME, Shopto.net still have quite a few Day One editions left.
