GameStop will have "limited" supply of Xbox Ones in stock on Black Friday

Company confirms more units will be available at stores across the United States this Friday, but supply will be "very limited."

by

GameStop stores across the United States will have extra Xbox One consoles in stock on Black Friday, a representative for the company told GameSpot today.

The supply GameStop will have was described as "very limited" and the representative said shoppers should call their local store first to ask about availability.

Xbox One units are currently sold out through GameStop's website. Systems are also sold out on Amazon, Best Buy, and Microsoft Stores. GameStop also today officially confirmed its lineup of Black Friday deals, which includes Battlefield 4 for $25 and $199 Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 bundles.

Microsoft released the Xbox One last Friday in 13 territories across the world. Gamers bought more than 1 million systems on the first day.

I just wonder, do console makers not consider that they are completely pissing off potential customers when they release new consoles? Nintendo did this with the Wii. It was impossible to get a Wii for months and months after release unless you pre-ordered or stood in line for hours at midnight. Some of us have fucking lives and jobs.

I'm going to buy a PS4 now, fuck this.

So "Fuck you if you didn't preorder, you aint gettin one."

Cool strategy MS. Following the Wii strategy. Because we know how well that worked out for them - no one gave a fuck about Wii after a while on purpose.

I don't like Gamestop, they just sell used games, who wants to buy that? New is way better.

Gamestop and many stores will probably have a limited supply but there no shortage. Try and get a PS4 before Febuary. Take that stupid lemmings.

Ah the old "limited supply" trick, most people are dumb and think limited supply equates to 'high demand', so if they have trouble getting their hands on one, it must mean that everyone is buying them right? Apple used to do this with the iphones.

I called 4 stores today looking for a second console and was told 'sold out'. Pretty sure no one would turn down 500 bucks and potentially a software purchase.

@berserker66666 Who the hell is escapistmagazine? lol!! Some fanboy gaming site? All those systems will be gone by the end of the day on Black Friday. Stores are holding them just for that day.

The irony is you rip on MS yet Sony pulls the same hype / hysteria train.  All companies hold their stock after their launch to induce hysteria.

Doesn't mean it is not selling well. Maybe those people still need some time to get some extra cash before they can buy it... Just a thought.

@bluefox755 Bingo.  These companies purposely hold back stock, still makes no sense whatsoever.  I mean, don't they want customers to buy their product?

@danbodamnit I think you were bought and payed for the minute you got an xbox one,

and is it not possible some just straight up don't like Microsoft? they weren't always making shitty console,

and even then the hate was warranted

Well at GameStop a new game is five dollars more and the readable side of the disk doesn't look like it was run over a belt sander then coated with finger prints.

@ewjiml @berserker66666 In this case they want systems available for Black Friday. Sony has a warehouse full of PS4 just for that day.

@UnstoppableKARL @bluefox755 demand, they induce hysteria and influence the public into thinking it is a rare commodity,

that's why human beings like sugar and salt, because those things are hard to come by, so they say these things,

they are just trying to sweeting things up for higher sales

@anybodykilla15 @danbodamnit exactly my point, this is article based on gamestops statement and you idiots are saying its a scam by MS......bought and payed for, but couldnt the same be said for you as your constantly bashing ms and ppl who buy them, just because YOU dont like them......

anybodykilla15

@M3o5nster tell him to wait, the 2 consoles don't warrant a full purchase yet because of their gimped games and horrible ui, by jan-april will be the deal breaker for sure

@anybodykilla15 @M3o5nster @elegantspock LOL he's not going through all that... Spock made it sound like you can just walk into almost any store and fine one; kinda like the Xbox One.

@de-astroturfer @anybodykilla15 @danbodamnit sony do if they want to sell a lot this Friday,

de-astroturfer

@danbodamnit Nobody is saying Microsoft paid for it, they are saying however that Microsoft is artificially decreasing supply to imply greater demand than there actually is, like they always do !

anybodykilla15
anybodykilla15

@danbodamnit @anybodykilla15 i am of the fuck Microsoft party fo life, and the entry is free,

and it is ms fault, they could've sold xbox exclusively to na before the world,

and of course they are going to say they have a lil bit, just to put into consumers minds,

"i got to get some before they are gone" but of course, evidence isn't your strong suit now is it
