Blockbuster recently revealed that Microsoft’s latest gaming system broke the company’s pre-order record, garnering the most in their 24-year history.
United Kingdom gamers paid £20 (equivalent to $30.18 in US dollars) just to reserve a copy of the next generation of Xbox.
“We are delighted by the huge numbers of pre-orders that we have received so far for the new Microsoft console,” said James Morton, Blockbuster’s Head of Games. “Our expert staff know gaming and they know consoles and these pre-orders are testament to our customers’ trust in us as a leading gaming retailer.”
While Blockbuster is celebrating their sales, countless fans are taking to the World Wide Web to blast the software giant.
In an IGN UK survey, nearly 76-percent of gamers stated that they were disappointed with the product, as they claimed it “had too many elements that did not interest them.”
Cinema Blend’s William Usherdid the math and divided the 76-percent naysayers into two different groups. One group (nearly 48-percent) stated that they were way too disappointed with the Xbox One reveal, while 27.87-percent of the unhappy fanboys stated that it was ‘dreck-filled disaster of proportions.’
Xbox One has a lot to prove to the electronic gaming industry especially since PlayStation 4 is breathing down their necks.
So far, the Company that Bill Gates built has not released a due date for the software device.
