Yesterday, announced that they were blown away by a record breaking number of preorders for the Xbox One. The company noted that within four hours, they had sold through most of their Xbox One Day One Edition inventory.

John Love, Director of US Video Games and Software at, stated that:

“We were thrilled by the unprecedented demand we saw for Xbox One today. In the first four hours of preorder availability, we sold through most of our Xbox One Day One Edition inventory. Customers eager to get an Xbox One should visit our store at to ensure they keep up-to-date on the latest information. We are excited to be working with Microsoft to deliver the next generation of games and entertainment”

Despite harsh criticism for Xbox One’s need to check in online, inability to trade used games, and always on Kinect policy – the system is selling like hotcakes.

Anyone, besides me, preorder an Xbox One yet?
