The Xbox One X Is Fastest-Selling Xbox Pre-Order Ever

The Xbox One X is (mostly) sold out, and on its way there it decided to become the fastest-selling Xbox pre-order. Ever.

I say mostly as if you do search the internet with a fine tooth-comb, then you will find the odd site still accepting pre-ordering – Argos, in the UK, for example.

A quote from Guy List, who is the Retail COO states:

Our customers have been eagerly awaiting Xbox One X since the announce of Project Scorpio. This excitement has translated into the demand of pre-orders for the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. We’re excited to see our loyal community of gamers get hands on with the console and to see everything that the most powerful console has to offer.”

Xbox One X Pre-order announcement at Gamescom!

Gamescom is only days away, with an Xbox briefing happening at 8pm UK time on Sunday 20th August, and today we received official news from Xbox that details of the Xbox One X pre-order will be given at the event.

I would have already been glued to Mixer on the Xbox One to watch the briefing, but this news makes it doubly exciting!

Xbox One Breaks Blockbuster 24 Year Pre-Order Records

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.
