Xbox One pre-orders have been in hot demand, and with just hours to go until the console hits retailers' shelves there are still plenty of sellers vying for your Xbox-bound cash.

With the first round of Xbox One pre-orders having sold out in double quick fashion, Microsoft released new advanced stocks causing retailers to once again all line up to take your Xbox One pre-order cash. Due to the increased retail competition, however, there are plenty of good Xbox One pre-order deals to find and fortunately we've done all of the hard work for you.

"We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere,” Yusuf Mehdi, Vice President of Xbox Marketing said while confirming the November 22 Xbox One release date earlier this year.

“We sold out of our pre-order supply faster than at any other time in our history and we are on path to have the biggest launch of an Xbox ever. We look forward to celebrating with millions and millions of gamers this holiday.

Where can you pre-order the Xbox One? Read on to find out.


Having previously listed the Xbox One price at a lofty £599.99, Amazon has now brought its Xbox One pre-orders in line with the console's official price tag.

Offering no discernible promotions or freebies, the Amazon Xbox One pre-orders are now facing lengthy delays, with the retailer confirming any new Xbox One orders will now not be shipped until after the Christmas period.

"Orders placed from November 13 may not be delivered before Christmas," a statement on the company's Xbox One orders page states.

Suggesting that the company could introduce improved pricing or bundle deals ahead of launch, Amazon has paired its Xbox One pre-orders with the company’s pre-order price guarantee.

The company states: “Order now and if the Amazon.co.uk price decreases between the time you place your order and the release date, you'll be charged the lowest price.”

The first to have offered Xbox One pre-orders in the UK, ailing retailer Blockbuster was allowing gamers to secure their new Xbox console ahead of launch before entering administration for a second time.

Less than a week after being unveiled, the Xbox One broke Blockbuster's pre-order records. James Morton, Head of Games at Blockbuster stated: “We are delighted by the huge number of pre-orders that we have received so far for the new Microsoft console."

Now, after concerns the defunct retailer was not going to be able to honour all Xbox One pre-orders, it has stated that expectant gamers will get their next-gen console after all.

"We are pleased to announce that both Microsoft and Sony have set aside Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Day 1 consoles for Blockbuster customers who have valid pre-orders,” an official statement from the company stated.

Another retailer to have jumped on the Xbox One pre-order bandwagon early, Game is still offering the Xbox One, even a day before it is available in stores.

Giving gamers one last chance to snap up a Day One Xbox One, Game will today, November 21, make a final 200 consoles available to eager gamers.

"From 12 noon, @GAMEBoxpark will have 200 Xbox One Day One Consoles with FIFA 14 available to order," the retailers Tweeted.

"Consoles will be available on a first come, first served basis – once 200 people are queued up or have ordered, that's it!"

Having taken a bold approach to its Xbox One pre-orders, former high street giant turn online retailer Zavvi originally speculated that the final Xbox One price would be £399 and charged early pre-orders at that price.

No the online retailer is claiming 'Limited Day One' availability remaining so act fast if you want the next-gen gamer at launch.

Supermarket giant Asda is another leading retailer to offer Xbox One pre-orders.

Limiting customers to one Xbox One console apiece, Asda has inadvertently suggested that Xbox One stock might be in short supply at launch. With launch stock known to be limited, what better reason to pre-order the console ahead of time?

Earlier this week the supermarket chain added addition Day One Xbox One consoles to its online store but stocks were in short supply.

Just been reading up on Zavvi's Terms and Conditions and all that.. Even if you order the console and then when it comes out it's £499.99 they can and most likely will put the price up..

Doing this wouldn't go against their Pre-Order Price Promise as it says the Price Promise goes with Clause 9 from their Terms and Conditions, which explains that there is no contract between you and Zavvi until your account has been debited.

So lets say that you wait all of that time and then get to the stage where your account will be debited the £399.99, if Zavvi wanted to put up the price before you got debited they could do, if they wanted. And then they would have to inform you of that, and ask if you still would want the product.

Just sayin..

they forgot about the exciting drm features. no used games without a fee. no internet and your Xbox become a foot rest. no lending games out to a friend without a fee. hopefully you don't need more than one Xbox. because if you do and everyone likes the same game be prepared to buy multiple copies. but at least it allows you to watch TV on your TV. for the low low price of 5.99 a month on top of whatever your cable bill is. if that doesn't sound awesome then awesome does not exist. fo reals.

Amazon don't take the full amount now, money is taken on dispatch.

Don't try defend MS. Microsoft assume I am a thief in that every day I have to have my console connect via the internet to make sure I am legit! Ridiculous. And now after last nights reveal, looks like Sony are in a great position. Cheaper, no issue with used games, can play offline ... too many wins!

Thanks for mentioning that, I was wondering since I've just pre ordered it.

How ignorant you are. Typical Sony Fanboy grunt.

Official MS statement:

"Xbox One will also allow you to give up to 10 family members access to "log in and play from your shared games library ON ANY XBOX ONE." Similar to Xbox 360, "a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. YOU CAN ALWAYS PLAY your games, AND ANY ONE of your family members can be playing from your shared library AT A GIVEN TIME."

It is saying that I can always play my copy of Forza on my console along with one other (From the 10 on my shared Library list that don't have the game) on their console from their home.

That's fantastic; my son can play my copy of Forza (Installed in the Cloud) on his console at his home at the same time as me on my console at my home even though he doesn't have the game himself. That's whay I call "Sharing" a game with a friend. He need never buy another game again.

You get that with the PisS4

the thing is im an xbox fanboy. I waited in line since day one. now I need permission to play a system that I paid for? I don't think so. its cool that they allow you to let your family play games you paid for. but heres the thing I can do that with all my systems I have now. not only that. im a real person that gets laid off from work. loses their job for whatever reason. and has to cut back. now what do you think gets cut off first? if that happens I now can only watch tv or a movie on my next gen system. all set thanks. I hope you enjoy your new xbox. im sure it will be awesome. the new xbox just isn't made for the average person. id love to eat my own words. but until they don't treat me like a criminal. I will be missing out on a game I love and have followed since day one.

"its cool that they allow you to let your family play games you paid for. but heres the thing I can do that with all my systems I have now"

Really! Do tel us which of your systems let you play a game (Say Forza) installed on your system at your home while at the same time a friend can play the same copy of your game (Forza, which they don't hav) from their home on their system at the same time. Every other system I've knowm meant that for that to be possible both had to have a copy of the same game. Not so with Xbox One.

As for cut backs, pleeeaaaase, the internet is cheap as chips.

I can loan any game I own to anybody I want to. on any system I have. can I play that same game when they are? no, I cant. do I want to? usually the answer is no. unless I do some co op on the same system. in which case there is no need for two discs. as for the internet being cheap as chips. when you go from having money to having what you saved, I like to not spend as much. and I never needed an internet connection for anything that I own to work. so I refuse to pay for something whether its 50 or 60 extra a month or a bag of chips. the point is most people don't save any money. I know a lot who don't at least. and for them and me and those like me. an xbox 1 is not feasible. im not being sarcastic or trying to be an ass to what you say. the xbox one was made for you. it was not made for me. its to bad I love the halo universe.

1. There is NO drm or used game fee on the new Xbox one you can do exactly as you do now on the 360 no restrictions.

2. The used game policy is exactly the same as the PS4.

3. it's £31 a YEAR for Xbox live Gold on Amazon and you currently get Two FREE games a month that you KEEP even if your subscription runs out.

4.Now confirmed No more free PSN on the PS4 you will have to pay to play online multplayer games, it's currently £37 a year on Amazon.

Hi, Your information regarding the loophole to get 10% of the new Xbox one from Toysrus is incorrect, the voucher states 'must exclude pre-orders' only available with online orders

Actually I wish they'd bring back the used game fee. People did not understand the reason behind it or more importantly how it would work. You the player would not spend more money for a used game. If your used game needs a used game license then your used game retailer would be forced to drop the price that much lower to sell it cheaper then a used game. Then your used game license fee would off set any online price raise for all the improvements they made. Now Gamestop and stores like that are so happy they don't need to lower the price and profits because you will pay the extra money on top of the used game. Both companies will get paid it was just Microsoft's Idea to get it from used game "SELLERS" and not the game players.
