Microsoft Stores hosting midnight launch parties for Xbox One
November 22nd is a big day for Microsoft. The Xbox One is launching that day (along with the Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 in the US). To celebrate, Microsoft Stores are having midnight launches. The parties start at 10 PM local time on Thursday, November 21st. There will be entertainment and giveaways throughout the evening.
Arrive early to secure your place in line. The first 50 people will receive exclusive prizes. The stores are also going to showcase the latest Xbox One games like Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, and Killer Instinct.
Preorders for the Xbox One are now hard to find, but the Microsoft Stores will have some at the midnight launch. Supply will be limited and consoles will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Are you planning to go to your nearest Microsoft Store? Find the nearest location here.
Don’t have a Microsoft Store nearby? Don’t worry. There are over 10,000 other retail locations in 13 countries with their own midnight launches. You’re even luckier if you’re in New York City or Los Angeles.

So I tend to only buy consoles a few years pass their launch. So I'll stick to the PS3 and skip PS4 and XboxOne for a couple of years.
Other times I do it to get the price down. But it's not easy. Oh, not easy at all.
