Microsoft announced its intention to create a gaming console in 2001, and the original Xbox console was launched that year. The sole intention was to compete with the Sony Playstation 2.It has since been discontinued. In 2013, Microsoft will launch a brand new console, the Xbox One, to yet again face off with its rival Sony, and their Playstation 4.
Online retailer 247 Electronics bit off more than they could chew with their Black Friday deal- offering an Xbox One with a game for just £269.99 and the same deal for a PlayStation 4 for £279.99.
The result was that avid bargain hunters scrambled to take advance of the deals, as Xbox One’s normally retail at £329 for just the console and a further £50+ for a game, and the company was not prepared for the surge of buyers- stocking just 400 units, to fulfil 3,000 orders.
After placing their orders, customers were starting to wonder where their consoles were and started to ring and email the company, who only had 4 members of staff to deal with the wave of communication – reaching 150 emails a minute and hundreds of calls a day.
The problem arose after the company found themselves unable to log into their administrators area of the site, meaning they couldn’t change stock levels or limit the amount of orders placed. By the time they could get access to this section, there had been payments processed for 3,000 orders, which staff knew they wouldn’t be able to fulfil.
The company have placed an order for 5,000 units, but they are not expected to arrive before Christmas. All customers who have placed orders have been offered refunds.

Gearbox’s action game Borderlands 2 took the world a few years ago. However, despite the release of the next-gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One, the company have no plans to release the game’s ‘pre-sequel’ on these new platforms. Instead, it will only be getting a release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
The CEO of Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, said it is “a new fully standalone game. It is going to launch on the platforms that we know our customers have, so it is going to launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. There is no next-gen version of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.”
He continued: “It is not free to build a game for next-gen, right? So when you’re deciding on where you are going to spend your resources, I think we want to spend all of the attention we can on the game itself. If you try to imagine the set of Borderlands players that have already upgraded, that is not 100 per cent. But if you try to imagine the set of, say, an Xbox One owner or PlayStation 4 owner that does not have a PS3 or Xbox 360, the difference there is so close to nil.”
Borderlands 2 was a darkly comic shoot-and-loot action game in which you choose one of four characters to play. You must fight your way through a planet’s environment towards the villain Handsome Jack, upgrading your weapons along the way. The game was hailed as one of the best of the year by several gaming critics and publications. The ‘pre-sequel’ will see you play as Handsome Jack and follow his rise to power.
The game will be available to buy this autumn on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
