The launch of the Xbox One is a massive event for millions of gamers around the world and the console is sure to top many Christmas present lists this year,” Tesco Home Entertainment manager Stephen Owusu stated.
The last Xbox console – the Xbox 360 – was launched eight years ago so there has been a lot of expectation and talk from gamers about this latest version. If the US launch is anything to go by these will fly off the shelves.
We have worked closely with Microsoft to ensure we have a good quantity of initial stock but we will be getting more as we get nearer to Christmas.”
