Had to put a guide up right? Scan your code in via Kinect or type the sucker in...bam, achievement unlocked and welcome to Xbox One.

The code is in the box of the day one edition XBox One. If your having trouble finding the code, its a piece of paper that is in your box.

if your having trouble finding out how to redeem your code, say "Xbox Use a code"
wbsKinda annoying that this isn't considered a game or completion by TA but on my Xbox it is now my Xbox and TA are 2 games off this and Quake 2. Why can't we just stick with the Xbox formula so our completion and played games will stay the same even if some people whine about it?

borstalHa, folks have voted negative???? Is the guide wrong? Sad folks need to go out, get drunk, have sex maybe even get up to something illegal. Lighten up and hang loose! :)

Sol Invictus XIOk, where is the code? I still have all the packaging that came with the system, but I didn't run across an obvious "use this for the achievement" code. Admittedly I didn't look too closely as I was more interested in getting it set up and on.
Posted by Sol Invictus XI on 27 Nov 13 at 20:42
Burning KarmaIf I remember correctly, it's in the packaging with the controller and cables. It only comes with the Day One Edition of the console, I think.

GrimaceTheGreyIt does only come with the day one edition, if you have a green box, you are out of luck.

Dakrkplayer2Achievement I will never get. But sometimes I tend suppress myself in achievements. I might have a day one coming my way as a xmes gift. Just like I got 1k this month. By finlly deciding to play DR2. Now I like to see that happen with this one. And if not. Uh well. Can I dream.

XonatronI'm in! :)
Posted by Xonatron on 30 Nov 13 at 01:40
XonatronWait, Quake 2 doesn't count as a game completion? I think it should.
Posted by Xonatron on 30 Nov 13 at 01:41
JohnnyMurder138wait...wait.. so i take the code.... ok thats where i get lost. ;)

NetroDudeAwesome guide for anyone that is struggling, luckily I managed to figure it out myself :) +1

HighOctaneGamerthis achievement is kinda dumb because i got my xbox at midnight release, but just because i didnt get the day one console i dont get the achievment? makes no sense
Posted by HighOctaneGamer on 01 Dec 13 at 23:18
XonatronI agree.
Posted by Xonatron on 02 Dec 13 at 20:11
XonatronI also don't get how these stats are possible:

"16,473 tracked gamers have this title, 16,464 have completed it (99.95%)"
Posted by Xonatron on 02 Dec 13 at 20:11
LoddosYou should add that this is a missable achievement headspin
Posted by Loddos on 03 Dec 13 at 13:25
AvengedAgainstLol. Will do
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 03 Dec 13 at 14:19
Hail2STARSCREAMWOW, this achievement shows that you had the balls to buy this crap right from the get go!!!
Posted by Hail2STARSCREAM on 04 Dec 13 at 15:02
AvengedAgainstCrap? Guess you don't have one. Don't hate on others that don't need their mommies to buy them stuff.
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 04 Dec 13 at 17:49
Im LoganXP^I agree. The Xbox One is certainly not crap.
Posted by Im LoganXP on 04 Dec 13 at 19:28
Draco719Missable to a degree. You can purchase the code on ebay from people who dont care about the achievement.
Posted by Draco719 on 05 Dec 13 at 02:37
AvengedAgainstHaha that's funny. Anybody that purchases an achievement...oh wait....damn! I'm sure we've all done it, don't look at me like that!
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 05 Dec 13 at 02:39
LoddosLet's wait for the "day two" achievement.
Posted by Loddos on 05 Dec 13 at 11:52
Done For YouAvengedAgainst, i don't know how much the X1 was for you, but in theory i paid $600 for this achievement :P
Posted by Done For You on 06 Dec 13 at 06:06
PRlSTlNEIf I could back 2 weeks from now and sell that sucker for 100$ you bet your ass I would. Even tho it does look nice as the first achievement on my list.

As for all of us paying money for achievements... If you have a bought a game, or a DLC pack that you fully played and it felt like nothing but a grind... You payed money for an achievement. But thats still different than buying a day one code for more than it cost to bye a new 60$ game.
Posted by PRlSTlNE on 06 Dec 13 at 06:54
AvengedAgainst@Done for You, 499.99
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 06 Dec 13 at 16:18
AvengedAgainstWow, they're going for around 20 bucks. That's funny
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 06 Dec 13 at 17:19
KiDLUCiF3RCan't wait for the DLC to go with this achievement!
Posted by KiDLUCiF3R on 10 Dec 13 at 19:06
MosesChristusThis achievement might be the saddest part in gaming since I started with Ice Climber back in 1985.
Seems like the greedy companies and moron gamers have taken over gaming! cry

liveAlexiosxbox, use a code
Posted by liveAlexios on 16 Dec 13 at 11:57
edwiitosThis achievement needs a Walkthrough.
Posted by edwiitos on 16 Dec 13 at 19:44
XtowersSolution is vague. What code? Where to find?
Posted by Xtowers on 19 Dec 13 at 21:45
AvengedAgainstReally?
Posted by AvengedAgainst on 19 Dec 13 at 22:55
XtowersIf it wasn't me it'd be someone else. Just a regular Xbox One here. Your edit makes it more clear. Thanks.

Posted by ChungJai on 29 Dec 13 at 19:56
Wait how the fuck have some people not got this achievement? 99%? Im so confused.
Posted on 12 Mar 14 at 23:06
MrRobertoNZYeah 99.99 doesn't make any sense????????
Posted by MrRobertoNZ on 18 Mar 14 at 03:18
mydefposseJust seen loads of these codes on eBay for £10... I'm slightly tempted....
Posted by mydefposse on 19 May 14 at 00:02
Dude, why pay money just to lie about you having Xbox One on Day One?
Posted on 25 May 14 at 10:50
GiinceeCan you still get this achievement? Or was it only obtainable on the launch day? Or do I just need to use the code and still can get it?
Posted by Giincee on 24 Jun 14 at 10:58
BALLISTIC VIII was wondering the same since Amazon and a few stores still selling the Steelbox Day One Edition. I assume you just put the code in and BAAAM!

Joonas@BALLISTIC VII
I own the Day One 2013 SteelBook and it doesn't come with a code for this achievement or any other achievement for that matter. There are 2 codes in the box. One for a 12-month Xbox Live Gold membership and another for Killer Instinct's Shadow Jago character.

Also anyone living in a country where Xbox One wasn't released last year and thinking of buying a code for the achievement. I bought one from eBay last December and it didn't work on my Finnish account. It worked on my US account though so take that into consideration if you live in a country where Xbox One hasn't been released yet since you are probably unable to redeem the code for your main account.

BastiXS96Achievement seems glitched.
http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/xbox_one_sup...

And when you look at the Recent Winners ... July 26th ...

you can still buy sealed DayOne-Packages and i think you will be very unhappy if it doesn't unlock :(
Posted by BastiXS96 on 12 Aug 14 at 09:34
LordFightALotYeah, the achievement is glitched at the moment but they are working on it!
Posted by LordFightALot on 08 Sep 14 at 17:28
Endar of NTADidn't unlock for me in late August but seemed to have accepted the code...
Posted by Endar of NTA on 10 Sep 14 at 22:45
jeffrey791024Got the day one @launch day in the Netherlands, achievement didn't pop up, but the code was accepted
Posted by jeffrey791024 on 12 Sep 14 at 17:03
FuzzedUpCookieredeemed mine today, didn't pop right away... after a few hours of downloading and installing games and apps etc (and having it turned of when i got some dinner) it just popped out of nowhere while playing BF4 multiplayer :)
Posted by FuzzedUpCookie on 19 Sep 14 at 00:10
LordFightALotThe achievement is working again! It is fixed. Go look in your achievement list to see it for yourself!
Posted by LordFightALot on 03 Oct 14 at 13:32
JoonasI can also confirm that the achievement is working again. I scanned my code on September 5th and it took a few weeks for it to appear. Timestamp shows the right and exact time when I scanned it.
Posted by Joonas on 04 Oct 14 at 18:38
Eric From CaliI have a spare code. I think I might wait a few more months, then try selling it
Posted by Eric From Cali on 12 Oct 14 at 21:32
Ale386From G2A you can buy this achieveament for 50 bucks
Posted by Ale386 on 18 Dec 14 at 00:08
SkepticTheGreatAchievement worked fine for me. Unlocked and scanned right away. Ebay has Day One codes for around $30.
Posted by SkepticTheGreat on 08 Mar 15 at 16:07
lfcjohnMay i know if any one try to buy from cd-keys (http://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/32mtav/day_one_achi... and work with different country (as i bought mine one day one launch at Sep, 2014 but not kinect version)
Posted by lfcjohn on 15 Apr 15 at 03:02
lfcjohnUpdate myself after communicate with cdkeys.com. The code is valid and region-free. I bought it with 5% discount after like their facebook page and receive QR code and 25 letter code once paid. :)
Posted by lfcjohn on 15 Apr 15 at 15:23
FuzzedUpCookieyou actually paid about 20 bucks orso for a code that gives you a single cheevo that doesn't even count because it's an 'app' laugh you might well give us all some if you need to get rid of your money wink lol jk!
Posted by FuzzedUpCookie on 15 Apr 15 at 19:11
iN5iDiOU5 iRi5HIs there a "day 500 and something" achievement?
Posted by iN5iDiOU5 iRi5H on 18 Apr 15 at 17:24
FuzzedUpCookieobviously not ;) lol
Posted by FuzzedUpCookie on 18 Apr 15 at 20:26
HaarbergerAt least us others have the "date unlocked" to brag with lol
Posted by Haarberger on 17 Oct 15 at 17:26
Braders77UKWonder if the day one codes are still valid? Last unlock was in August. A more important question is; Why am I even in this thread? (No offence)
Posted by Braders77UK on 19 Oct 16 at 05:18
marikbrestHi

i just used the Xbox One Day One Achievement but i cant see it on my account, even Microsoft support did not managed to help me.
Posted by marikbrest on 23 Oct 16 at 19:20
tsmpriusI unlocked mine on November 21, 2013(I got my Xbox One a day early because of post office error) but for some reason the achievement disappeared from my profile. Even TA doesn't list the achievement on my profile. Contacted Microsoft Support, no help as usual, but they did say they would send a new code, which means the achievement is still valid.
Posted by tsmprius on 27 Jan 17 at 16:44
Jonah Falcon"Haha that's funny. Anybody that purchases an achievement...oh wait....damn! I'm sure we've all done it, don't look at me like that!"

I paid $500+ for the launch Xbox One. So... it wasn't an Easy achievement.
Posted by Jonah Falcon on 04 Dec 18 at 19:12
Charles D WayneCan you still unlock the achivement with an code?
Posted by Charles D Wayne on 10 Dec 18 at 02:24
SlightlyEroticI see there are codes on eBay. Anyone know if it still unlocks when the code is entered?
Posted by SlightlyErotic on 22 Sep 20 at 21:46
GiinceeLast recent winner got this achievement on 2nd January, 2014. Don't think that this achievement works anymore
Posted by Giincee on 23 Sep 20 at 06:51
EskimosoundThe code does still unlock however it's totally useless as it just disappears into the ether. It does not appear anywhere...no Achievement
Posted by Eskimosound on 04 Feb at 15:23
HolyHalfDead@Giincee - not sure where you got that date. I see September 2016.

As for TA, this achievement does not count.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 30 May at 20:30
I had an unused code lying around so I went and redeemed it on my account.
It successfully redeems it and attaches it to your account as one would expect but It didnt "pop" or actually appear on the gamer card in any noticeable way.
Only way I know I have it is redeeming the code again and it saying it was redeemed by myself on whatever date and it saying its the xbox day one code etc.
Considering these unused codes sell for alot of money on Ebay, I would probably recommend not picking this one up.
Not sure of anyone else's experience, but that was mine on 7/3/2021!headspin
