The Xbox One that the internet seems to love to hate right now has broken records at Blockbuster for being their most pre-ordered console in its 24-year history!

Blockbuster’s head of games James Morton stated:

We are delighted by the huge number of pre orders that we have received so far for the new Microsoft console … At Blockbuster, we have a fantastic array of adrenaline-fuelled console games for sale or rental. Our expert staff know gaming and they know consoles and these pre-orders are testament to our customers’ trust in us as a leading gaming retailer…

It comes as a bit of a surprise since haters of the console are screaming out for a Sony PS4, and Sony themselves haven’t even announced the requirements for the next-gen Sony console. It is looking more likely that publishers are pushing for both consoles to have DRM tools so that developers can rightfully receive profits from the re-sale of the software licence attached to used games.
