We previously reported that both PS4 and Xbox One were now available for pre-order at various retailers. Microsoft has now reportedly confirmed that one of its major retailers in the U.S., Amazon.com, has sold out of all pre-order stock for Xbox One. The actual release is slated for November, that’s almost five months away, and yet one major retailer is already out of pre-order stock. Whether it will be getting more stock, is a question that remains unanswered.
Microsoft has not revealed what the pre-order allocation was for Amazon.com, but it says that the fact that all of it sold out “got a lot of people in the company excited.” Chris Lewis, VP of Interactive Entertainment Business for Europe at Microsoft made these comments. He also believes that pre-orders being sold out on Amazon.com is an indicative trend that Microsoft will see throughout the pre-order stage. The Xbox One carries a price tag of $499 and will be launched in some 21 countries this November. By the looks of it, Xbox One will be in huge demand around the holiday season. I’ve got to ask, are you team Xbox One or PlayStation 4?
