Tesco Extra stores in UK to get additional Xbox One consoles for launch

As we get closer and closer to the worldwide release of the Xbox One on Friday, more retailers are informing customers they will have a limited extra supply of Microsoft's next generation console for sale for the launch. One of them is Tesco, who has announced that over 100 of its Extra branded stores in the UK will get additional units for sale.

Tesco's press release states that the consoles will be sold on a first-come first-served basis. There's no word on just how many units will be put up for sale at each location. Ten of their Extra stores will have their outdoor sign altered for the occasion with the Xbox One logo, as shown above from the Blackpool location.

MCV also reports that 200 Day One Xbox One units will be available to purchase for UK residents before the midnight Friday launch at the GAME Xbox-themed Boxpark store in Shoreditch. The orders will be taken tomorrow at noon and, yes, the orders will be taken on a first-come first-served basis.

Microsoft previously announced that its Microsoft Store locations in the U.S. and Canada will have a limited number of extra Xbox One consoles for sale at midnight Friday.
