Xbox One preorders already happening at Amazon, M$ and GAME
We don't know when it's coming out, but the Xbox One is available for pre-order at European retailers Game and Zavvi. It's also up for "pre-order notifications" on Amazon, the Microsoft Store, GameStop and Best Buy. Best Buy's ad lists the Xbox One with a "holiday 2013" release window, though all we know officially is that it's coming "later this year."

Game lists a pre-order holding price of £20 for the Xbox One, while Zavvi's pre-order down payment is £400. Zavvi also has a lineup of Xbox One games for £50, including Call of Duty: Ghosts and four EA Sports games.

GAME confirms pre-orders for Xbox One
21st May 2013
After much speculation Microsoft has unveiled its new home console, the Xbox One. The launch date for the new device is yet to be announced, however GAME is pleased to announce that pre-orders are already open for Microsoft's cutting-edge device.

The Microsoft Xbox One is available to pre order now in stores and online at http://xboxnews.game.co.uk/ for £20.

Judging by the ecstatic response of the gaming community to the PlayStation 4 reveal back in February, demand for the Xbox One from Microsoft devotees is expected to be equally high.

Charlotte Knight, Category Director, GAME Retail Ltd says: "Gamers all around the country have been eagerly waiting to find out what Microsoft will be bringing to the table – today we have our answer: not only is the Xbox One a really powerful piece of gaming hardware, it promises the next level in home entertainment. The UK gaming community is obviously excited by the prospect of this next generation console and we can't wait to see it in action at E3 next month!

"It is worth reminding everyone who's interested in the Xbox One that many console launches have seen demand significantly outstrip supply, so we would urge anyone wishing to get their hands on a Xbox One from launch to place a deposit with our store teams or online as soon as possible."
