Xbox One launch day will be a super busy, with thousands of people wanting to grab their shiny new gear as fast as possible to get their game on. With that in mind we've come up with some ways to make your Xbox One pickup experience less stressful.

Firstly, what if we told you that you could get your Xbox One for less?

Get more towards your Xbox One during VIP Trade Week:

Simply trade your old Xbox 360 and PS3 hardware towards your Xbox One and you’ll get a huge 50% Bonus Trade Credit! It gets even better, with DOUBLE your EB World Bonus Trade Credit for any games you trade! Make the most of this great deal at your local EB Games store from this Saturday 9th November to next Saturday 16th November, and get your Xbox One for less!

With your gaming dollar taking you further, let us save you some time as well. With our FastPass express pickup queue you'll spend less time waiting and more time gaming.

Getting your FastPass is super simple:

Preorder all your Xbox One games and accessories
Pay off in full all preorders you’ll be collecting on launch day
Get your FastPass coupon and receipt -- keep these together!
On Xbox One launch day line up in the FastPass queue
Head home with your new Xbox One console, games and accessories sooner!
Important info about using your FastPass:

Keep your FastPass coupon and fully paid receipt in a safe and secure place!
The FastPass queue will be for Xbox One preorder pickups only, so make sure to get all your preorders and trades done early – like during VIP Trade Week!
You can get a FastPass up until 5pm on Thursday 21st November.
Must-read info about your Next Gen preorder:

Xbox One launch day is 22nd November, check HERE for midnight openings near you.
All Xbox One console preorders need to be picked up within 72 hours of launch, by COB Sunday 24th November. EB World Level 4 members have 7 days -- until COB Friday 29th November-- to pick up their Xbox One console preorders.
Due to high demand we cannot offer layby's for Xbox One consoles and accessories.
Xbox One requires an online membership, Xbox Live Gold, in order to play online multiplayer games, and to access certain functionality and content. Online memberships are sold separately.
You may be required to activate your Xbox One console online and/or download a software update in order to use the console, or to enable certain functionality. An internet connection and sufficient download limit is required.

The Elite was the very last of the old shape 360s. Before the 360S was released.

Yeah they offer a bonus but probably just reduced the trade in value recently, cant remember exactly what I got for mine but was with a few dodgy controllers and a slim console with hard drive was over $220, oh and a few games also, I felt it was an ok deal back then considering the fan was rattling squeling inside the console and needed a good knock to get it going.

Went and bought another second hand console of them reconditioned for less than I got for me trade so was happy.

Hey Danno do u now u can pick up COD Ghosts for xbone on 15th Nov. Not sure about a midnight release or anything. That way we can sit & look at it for a week till console comes out. You can also pick up AC Black Flag on 21 Nov

yeah....i'm swapping my 360 prestige over for a xbOne prestige.
Ghosts is looking pretty good on the 360 so should be awesome on the xbOne.

The EB Facebook page is a joke sometimes. Stupid posts and not much info. No wonder your posts here rank higher than their page does, lol.
Our local EB has their own FB page that post actual info on games and consoles not long after the info come available. Might be one of the reasons they were voted #1 store a year or so ago.
If I remember I might post up your OZFM poster on their page as well.

With the Fast Pass it might only be good for the huge city stores with hundreds of pre-orders to hand out. Our store reckons everyone will be out the door, console/games in hand, by 12:30am. Plus most customers have a Fast Pass leaving only a handful at the end of the line. Good news for me is that I can get some quality sleep after I drop of the kids and be at EB by 11:30 without the fear of waiting for ages in a line. Should get a few hours play before 3am start at work.

Oh, and change your search to "eb games fast pass" and your poster will be 4th and on the top line of the image search! (well it was when I posted)

Grabbed my Fast Pass this morning. The guy at EB said I can pick up everything but the consol at 6pm, then if I come down about 11 he will serve me first... Not hard in a small town... lol.

Need to find a game to play while I wait for a solution for the wheel now.

I want to get any xbone game in my hands so i can see what resolution they are going to project in. Looking into getting a 4k ultra HDTV to go with new console, but waiting to sus it all out first to see if it`s going to be worth spending money on new TV yet.

Not sure either rinkly, I thought it was for launch day not midnight launches, as pretty certain anyone there at midnight is there for exactly the same reason.

The bennifit of Fast Pass for me will be not standing in line behind that idiot that is arguing that the pin they are using for their credit card is the right one...
