    Default Xbox One - Console only sales

    Guys,

    Thought I would give you a quick heads up for anyone considering purchasing an Xbox One, especially from likes of Ebay/Gumtree. These sites are flooded with people selling Xbox one's barebones (just the console, no leads or controller, PSU etc)
    for example like:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    These have actually been obtained by exploiting a glitch on the Microsoft Advance warranty exchange website whereby they could avoid credit card details being verified on the site meaning replacements could be sent directly to them and exploited several times over.

    I believe Microsoft have just started to investigate this and will be banning all these consoles in the near future.

    5 Thanks given to pheonixsingh

    Not sure exactly what the people have been doing but if the problem is down to a fault in M$'s website then nothing illegal has taken place has it ????
    So what right would they have to ban them ?????

    Easter is coming... Free publicity.... More sales...

    Believe it or not, some folk out there will not know about the new console! Free 'negative' publicity is the best kind.

    I believe its been plugged


    Essentially M$ ran an advance exchange programme which was put in place when some Day One consoles had issues, what would happen is M$ would place a chargehold on your credit card of 300odd quid (similar to hotels etc) and they would send you a replacement Xbox One in advance and when you receive it you simply give courier your broken xbox all packaged up to return to MS

    Due to the glitch, all you needed was a valid serial and any old CC number and you run through the process on the site and where you get to the page where you enter your credit card detail you hold shift and press refresh or something like that and submit your info again quickly and will go through without checking CC details. So you get a new Xbox One without any charge to your CC and can keep existing Xbox One


    Ive seen them as cheap as 140/150 on sites like Gumtree: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
