Xbox One doesn’t have a solid release date or a price yet, and still, a record number of pre-orders for the console have been reported by Blockbuster UK.

According to the retailer’s head of games, speaking with MCV, the firm is “delighted by the huge number” of pre-orders received so far.

“At Blockbuster, we have a fantastic array of adrenaline-fueled console games for sale or rental,” said James Morton. “With Sony releasing the PS4 in the near future, the next few months are going to be an exciting time for our staff and customers at Blockbuster and we can’t wait to hear more details from both Sony and Microsoft at the E3 Expo next month.”

Xbox One was revealed last week and Microsoft has promised E3 will focus on gaming content, a subject which was barely skimmed during the console’s announcement.
