Update: All Xbox One Day One consoles are now sold out on Amazon.

The Xbox One release date is on November 22, 2013, while most retailers have sold out the pre-orders already, Amazon is offering one last chance for shoppers to get the Microsoft's new console today.

Amazon will accept purchases online for the Xbox One Day One Edition console on its website on November 20 at 8 a.m. EST/5 a.m. PST. And it is "guaranteed to be available on the Release Day of November 22, 2013."

The Day One console includes a commemorative controller, token code to unlock an exclusive Day One achievement, and premium packaging at no additional cost.

Best Buy and GameStop has announced that they will no longer accept Xbox One pre-orders.

Microsoft describes the Xbox One as "the ultimate all in one entertainment system - one system for a new generation." It has the second generation of Kinect baked in nice and deep and has powerful specs similar to those of the Sony PS4.

Xbox One comes with an x64 8 core CPU as well as a D3D 11.1 graphics chip with 32MB of built in memory. It has 8GB DDR3 of RAM and a 500GB hard disk drive for storage.

There is also an addition of a Blu-ray player - for the first time on an Xbox console - meaning it can look Sony's PS4 square the eye when it comes to spinning HD movies.
