Highest ever number of pre-orders in the retailer’s 24 year history.
For all the bile and venom – all justified mind you – that the world has poured on the Xbox One, it seems that retail response will be one of the things that doesn’t agree with us: Blockbuster has announced that the Xbox One has broken all previous records for pre-order launches in the retailer’s history.
Head of games James Morton stated that, “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.
“With Sony releasing the PS4 in the near future, the next few months are going to be an exciting time for our staff and customers at Blockbuster and we can’t wait to hear more details from both Sony and Microsoft at the E3 Expo next month.”
