Looking to pick up a 2TB Xbox One S ? That might be harder than you think. Stocks have all but sold out and according to Eurogamer, Microsoft has no plans to replenish stock of the white Xbox One S 2TB model, which launched with an RRP of £349.
Microsoft launched its shiny Xbox One S only a few weeks ago and apparently it’s been flying off the shelves. They released a 2TB model, but stock was limited and the console has now completely sold out at most retailers. If you want a 2TB-sized Xbox One S then your only option is the blood red Gears of War themed special edition, which will also arrive in limited numbers and at the more expensive price of £399 in October.
There are still 2TB Xbox One S consoles available to buy online from third party sellers but you’ll be paying significantly more than the RRP set by Microsoft. GAME are selling the console for £479.95 (from “Level 99 games”) whilst you can pick one up from Amazon for £469.99. Smaller sized Xbox One S models will launch with 500GB or 1TB hard drives at some point in the future but Microsoft has yet to say when and how much either will cost.
A Microsoft spokesman has said “We’re excited by the reaction from fans for the Xbox One S. While stock of the 2TB has sold out, gamers can pre-order the Xbox One S 2TB Gears of War Limited Edition console, We will be sharing further details on other Xbox One S bundles and variations in the coming weeks.”
Xbox One S delivers a significantly increased experience to gamers so it’s a shame to see stocks deplete so quickly after launch and prices shoot up as a result. Hopefully we’ll get more details about other models sooner rather than later.
