XBOX ONE – 100% Challenge – Day Negative 3

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Xbox One Blog

CURRENT PROGRESS

DAY: -3

BLOG #3

Launch is almost upon us. Picked up a controller at Wal-Mart and I like the new design. The biggest thing for me is the removal of the battery pack. It’s now enclosed in the controller so the back is flat which is really nice holding wise.

Games I will have at launch:
Ryse
Dead Rising 3
Killer Instinct (From MS)
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Xbox Fitness

Did the whole upgrade thing at GameStop and they just told me I wouldn’t get the coupon for 7 to 15 business days. From today. So they fucked me there. To be honest I have all but given up on GameStop. If I don’t have the upgrade coupon by launch I am done with GameStop. Best Buy is just so much easier or just overnight from Amazon with Prime. Their “exclusives” for pre-orders have been a complete joke lately.

EDIT: 11/20 – Despite a GameStop PowerUp Rep telling me I didn’t qualify because I pre-ordered BEFORE the next gen upgrade offer starting (despite the rules only saying buy it near launch) I got the coupon for the $50 guaranteed trade in for Ghosts so Ghosts is back on the list.

I was all pumped for Powerstar Golf until I just learned there is NO online multiplayer. You just play a ghost of your friend. Changed it from a definite to a demo.

So I was one of the lucky people to get Killer Instinct with all characters from MS. My issue now is I see Killer Instinct Classic is a completely separate game with a 1000 gs of it’s own. Does this mean I need to buy the Pass at $20 just to get Classic? That would suck if it’s the case. Will have to wait for launch to see.
