    Blockbuster has reported receiving a record number of XBOX ONE pre-orders.

    The retailer's head of games, James Morton, said in a statement published on MCV: "We are delighted by the huge number of pre-orders that we have received so far for the new Microsoft console.

    "At Blockbuster, we have a fantastic array of adrenaline-fuelled console games for sale or rental. Our expert staff know gaming and they know consoles and these pre-orders are testament to our customers' trust in us as a leading gaming retailer."

    Morton added: "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."
    Meanwhile, the German arm of online giant Amazon has begun listing Xbox One for pre-order with a price tag of €599 (£513), although this is likely just a placeholder. Zavvi has predicted an XBOX ONE price of £400 and release date November 30.

    Microsoft announced XBOX ONE last Tuesday, when it said the console will launch around the world later this year.

    Following the TV and entertainment heavy Xbox One reveal event, Xbox UK marketing manager Harvey Eagle promised: "E3 is absolutely all about the games. E3 is gaming, gaming, gaming. We've been very clear about that internally in our planning."

    Microsoft's E3 Conference kicks off at 10am Pacific Time on June 10.
