For those in the UK who have procrastinated on pre-purchasing an Xbox One and found themselves out of luck, your luck is about to change: from 12 noon tomorrow, GAME’s Xbox-themed Boxpark store in Shoreditch will have 200 Xbox One Day One Consoles with FIFA 14 available to order. Consoles will be available on a first come, first served basis – once 200 people are queued up or have ordered, that’s it. Those who purchase a console will also be invited to pick it up at midnight at the official Xbox One launch after a VIP evening. Xbox One launches on November 22 in North America and Europe. Thanks, MCV.

Xbox One Day One Edition sold out at GAME, store can’t guarantee launch day delivery of standard edition
GAME has apparently sold out of Xbox One Day One Edition stock. The firm noted on its website it has “reached [its] limit for Xbox One Day One Edition console preorders”, and is unable to guarantee launch day delivery of the standard edition either. While the standard model is still available to order, you will likely not get it on launch day. Last week, Amazon said pre-orders placed after August 15 could not be guaranteed for launch day delivery and it had sold out of Day One Editions. None of this is surprising, really, it happens every time a new console comes out. The early bird gets the worrm, etc. Via Videogamer.

UK retail chain GAME has added more Virtual Console titles to its 3DS eShop catalogue. The new eShop titles include Super Mario Bros. (£4.50), Donkey Kong (£3.60) and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (£5.40); you can see a full list on the chain’s website. When you buy one of these titles at GAME, you get a download voucher either by email or on your receipt. The ability pay via cash or PayPal is the main benefit of doing so rather than buying directly through the eShop with a credit card.

UK retailer GAME apparently made a bit of an error while promoting Android-based micro-console Ouya, highlighting a SNES emulator as one of the system’s free software offerings. While emulators are not illegal, the ROMS you play with them are in a very grey legal area and promoting their use is not something you’d want to do if you had a business arrangement with, say, Nintendo, for example. There’s no trace of the reference on the site now, but Kotaku has a screenshot. Whoops. Ouya is selling well.
