Blockbuster Teaming With Sony and Microsoft to Honor Console Pre-orders

Posted on November 6, 2013 AT 04:55am

British retailer Blockbuster has announced that it is working with both Sony and Microsoft to reserve next-gen consoles for its unlucky pre-order customers.

The retailer was forced to cancel all pre-orders of both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 after it entered administration, but it is now working with platform holders to ensure that everyone has a console at launch. “Blockbuster have teamed up with Microsoft and Sony to reserve Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles for Blockbuster customers who pre-ordered in advance, but have missed out because of our current difficulties,” the retailer wrote.

“Before we can do this however we need your permission to pass the details of your pre-order onto Microsoft and Sony’s fulfillment partner for the purposes of reserving a console for you.”

To claim your console all you have to do is fill in this form. The form must be filled in by 11:59 p.m. GMT on November 7.
