The Sony PS4 had a fantastic launch last week selling 1 million units in the first 24 hours. Can the Xbox One match that? We will know soon, in case Microsoft wants us to know the sales numbers. For now it looks like the Xbox One will have also an awesome launch as the pre-order is sold out for the most part and inventory was hard to find.
Starting midnight you can get your hands on an Xbox One in stores that open on midnight. To spot a Xbox One in stock at any major retailer use the Zoolert service. Just keep this page open and choose a sound to alert you when an Xbox One is in stock.
You can also check Amazon for Xbox One inventory and for Xbox One game deals. By the way, do not expect any Xbox One Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals. There are no advertisements that feature the new console on sale. This season it is all about just getting one at the regular price and don't have to pay eBay reseller premiums for an Xbox One.
The Xbox One starts at $499.99.
