Xbox One is a sell out at GameStop as retailer closes pre-orders

The world’s biggest games retailer GameStop has closed in-store pre-orders for the Xbox One.

Polygon reports that the company has hit its launch day allocation of units, although it is still currently accepting pre-orders for the machine online.

PS4 pre-orders remain open as store managers say allocations for Sony’s machine are considerably higher than Microsoft’s”.

Anecdotal evidence from one store suggests that while it had been allocated 60 PS4 consoles it was down to receive just 16 Xbox One units on launch day.

"Due to high demand, GameStop is not taking additional store reservations for the Xbox One Day One Edition,” a spokesperson for the retailer told Polygon.

However, reservations can still be made online. In the meantime, the Xbox One wireless controller and top Xbox One games like: Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, and Kinect Sports Rivals are available for pre-order at all GameStop stores or online."
