The launch day for has now been and gone, and with stocks running low around the UK now is the time to make sure you order your Xbox One before Christmas! Traditional retailers have all but run out and with Amazon now quoting January for their next deliveries people are starting to worry that they will not be able to get hold of one in time for Christmas. However there are still consoles available from people lucky enough to own one, of all the options available eBay have the best selection of reasonably priced auctions.
Where can you still get a new Xbox One before Christmas?
Right now there are two main options if you want to make sure you get your console before Christmas:
1. Ebay - As with most new consoles the demand has been much larger than production and delivery has allowed for, which means right now stock at UK retailers has run out or gone completely with all online retailers now quoting January 2014 as the delivery date. eBay's selection would appear to be the best option when it comes to availability and the best deals on bundles, there are other options but we would suggest if you can't wait then you should check out eBay first.
2. Amazon Market Place - Another popular choice with quite a few listings, and again they are reasonable in price especially if you shop around and look through the different bundles. If you find a good price snap it up because they are selling quickly and there isn't long left to secure your purchase before the festive season. Check it out whilst there still reasonable.
So at the moment information about the next deliveries due to the UK is scarce, although Microsoft are producing their consoles from three factories rather than one which is the case for the PlayStation 4. However, you can still order one through popular auction sites such as Amazon Marketplace and Ebay, people are inflating the prices but at this point you are paying for the convenience of making sure you get your Xbox One in time for Christmas.
Unsurprisingly the majority of the ones available are the Day One version which comes included with an Xbox One game too, so don’t forget that these alone are worth around £50 anyway.
