Hi, getting my Xbox one on 23rd September when it releases here and I wanna preorder Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare Atlas Limited Edition with Season Pass and I was thinking of getting it through digital download. I can buy games from PS Store on PS4 , so will I be able to do the same and pre-order COD AW from Xbox Live on Xbox One ?

Can any Xbox One users help me ?

I believe you do have the option to pre-order games, but it simply takes you to the developer's site in Internet Explorer to do so.

You cannot pre order through the XBL marketplace.

I think you can only pre-order if there's an advertisement for a game—Call of Duty must have one there, at some point. I speak from experience.

If that was the case, then the Destiny Guardians Edition should be available for pre order digital download. But that hasn't been on the XBL marketplace yet.

I certainly didn't mean they'd(the advertisements) be there immediately; I forgot what game it was, but I've seen an advertisement that directed me to a pre-order page in the marketplace. It may have been for Titanfall, but they do occasionally have pre-order advertisements there.

that won't be until they add that feature in one of the updates, they said something about paying for the game before it's out

Right now no. But am I the only one who fails to see the purpose of pre ordering a digital copy? Unless pre loading was involved or something

Probably for all that exclusive content thrown in.

Its confirmed for October. Whats the difference if the game doesnt offer a pre-order bonus?

as far as Ive read pre ordering will be there before October. In that suggestion post there's a call for pre-loading games before release which would be fantastic.

Why pre-order if you're doing a digital download? Just start the download at midnight.

cause then you and everyone else is trying to download the game at the same time and midnight turns into 3am before you can play? or maybe you feel like having it pre-ordered so you can sleep and have it ready for when you wake up? if pre-order comes with pre-loading, then you could start gaming right at midnight?

a few obvious reasons i can think of. also they are already discussing pre-ordering and pre-loading being implemented in the near future.

it didn't happen to me, but reports from the Destiny Beta sure showed what could happen. people with faster connections than I took a lot longer to download it. i have a 5mb/s download and it took a little over an hour where as some people with twice that reported it taking up to 20 hours.

my point was there are reasons to pre-order a digital downlaod. so even if you remove the possible speed problem, there are still other reasons that would suffice.
