GameStop stops Xbox One system pre-orders in-store


GameStop has confirmed that they have stopped taking pre-orders on the Xbox One in store. Their online site will continue to take pre-orders until they run out, but in store reserves are done. An email sent out to all store managers today confirm this news, as well as my sources in the local GameStop stores here in San Antonio.

Selling out of reserves on your new system six months in advance is pretty good for Microsoft. Despite all the negative press the system has received it seems to be doing well in pre-orders. GameStop hasn’t said whether they plan to open pre-orders up in store again. I wouldn’t count on it.

Did you manage to get your Xbox One pre-order in GameStop’s system in time?
