HeyUGuysGaming: ASDA revealed yesterday that pre-orders for the Xbox One have broken their record for “fastest selling pre-order console”. It’s not a surprise really when you factor in that just £20 can guarantee you one of the new machines at release – that is the same price as a portion of chicken chow mein, egg fried rice and vegetable spring rolls from the local chinese take-away.
ASDA aren’t the only ones taking pre-orders for next-generation technology either. Tesco, Zavvi, Amazon, ShopTo, Blockbuster & GAME are all taking orders for Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s new console and are quoting “unprecedented demand” for them.
Personally, I think all of these people pre-ordering either an Xbox One or PS4 at this early stage are insane.
