UK retail giant GAME has hailed last night’s Xbox One launch an incredible success, and says that the console’s sales will easily beat the launch of Xbox 360.
The firm created a pop-up GAME store at Trocadero for the launch of the console, with 26 year-old Charlie Pulbrook from Kent the first in the queue.
GAME added that if customers want an Xbox One for Christmas, they can still get one if they’re quick.
Last night was incredible," said Ian Chambers, chief digital officer from GAME.
"You could almost taste the excitement – gamers had been waiting for Xbox One for over eight years and we saw a massive turnout at the midnight openings at more than 300 GAME stores across the UK. We’ve seen record pre-order numbers for the new generation consoles and looking at the initial response it’s clear that sales will easily surpass that delivered at the Xbox 360 launch.
"There is still huge demand and if you pre-order now we can still get your Xbox One to you in time for Christmas, so don’t miss out! The first of the new generation consoles has set the bar high and along with our customers we can’t wait to get to grips with everything the Xbox One has to offer."
