Blockbuster UK Cancelling Console Pre-Orders

October 30th, 2013 by Al Keenan the Bald Gamer Dude Comments

The large retail rental chain has gone back into administration and have said they can not fufill the Pre-Orders for the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
This is a big blow to the high street as a once mighty chain goes back into administration for the second time this year, once the largest chair of video rental stores in the UK the rise of digital media, cheaper DVD sales and online content have meant hard times for Blockbuster (it also doesn’t help that their pricing is in the dark ages).

For those of you who Pre-Ordered you are being offered a refund in its place, its a shame that it is now too late to order anywhere else but this could also mean an influx of consoles elsewhere.

We here at FTN will keep our ears to the ground.


Did you pre-order from Blockbuster?

If so what are you going to do now?
