Few retails have Day One Editions in stock.
Remember how it was clarified that consumers would only receive free digital copies of FIFA 14 if they pre-ordered the Day One Edition of the Xbox One in Europe? Well, nabbing one is about to get tougher as retailers such as Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Toys R Us are reporting it’s sold out. Some like Amazon can’t even guarantee a Standard Edition on launch day in the UK.
GAME has the Day One Edition but this is along with the Prestige Edition of Call of Duty: Ghosts and retails for £614.98. ShopTo also has Day One Editions but again bundled with Battlefield 4 and £15 Microsoft Store credit at £489 bundle. There’s also the £575 bundle which features a second controller, Ryse: Son of Rome, Watch_Dogs and £10 Store credit.
For now, GameStop, Asda, Blockbuster and Currys still have Day One Editions stocked, though Asda and Blockbuster need a £20 deposit.
The Xbox One will be launching in Europe this November, though it’s primarily the UK that will be receiving it thanks to a delay in countries like Norway, Switzerland and 6 others.
