Microsoft’s Xbox One is now available for pre-order from a number of retail outlets.
If all of the rumors and hubbub surrounding the upcoming Microsoft machine hasn’t sent you screaming for your Atari 2600, then you can pre-order your very own next generation system right now. Xbox One is going to set you back $499, and that’s before you start investing in the games.
Although you can also send your money directly to the folks at Microsoft, there are a number of online retailers that are willing to sell you a machine for the very same price. Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon are just a few of the companies currently accently pre-orders. The console will drop this November.
Not surprisingly, there are quite a few people who are excitedly typing in their credit card numbers at this very moment. Some aren’t completely sold on the machine just yet, while others are downright angry about having the option to pre-order. Damn you, freedom of choice!
First, let’s have a look at the people who are genuinely excited about the pre-order.

If you’re thinking of buying Xbox One or PS4, jump on Amazon and pre-order ASAP. You don’t have to pay a dime now. Reserve and decide later.

Then there are those who are just unhappy about the Xbox One’s very existence.
Best Buy wants me to pre-order XBox One or whatever the hell the thing is called. My answer: thanks but no thanks.
