Yesterday, ASDA opened up its Xbox One pre-orders, charging a £20 fee to buy a discount voucher for the console which also reserves a launch unit on the day of release.
The way that this voucher works is that by purchasing it, customers with a voucher can use it on the console’s launch day to buy the Xbox One at a discounted price as well as giving these voucher holders priority in delivery.
As well as this customers have the ability to cancel their pre-order at any time and get their £20 back. Sounds pretty handy doesn’t it?
With quite an opposite approach, online retailers such as Zavvi and Amazon have set their own pre-order prices for the console rather than using this voucher method; this commits you to spending a large amount in comparison to the former. With Amazon setting a placeholder price of £599.99 (subject to change) let’s all hope that the console does not end up reaching those pricey heights.
