UK retailer, Argos, is set to trial something every gamer has always wanted, one-minute-past-midnight deliveries for their pre-orders. Specifically, for pre-orders of the Xbox One X.
Today Argos announced that avid gamers will be able to get their hands on their Xbox One X consoles at one-minute-past-midnight on November 7 as part of a new trail within their Fast Track delivery service. This limited trial will have customers who take part in the pre-order trial receiving their consoles at exactly 00:01.
The Xbox One X will be delivered directly to their doors meaning they’ll be among the first to be able to unbox, set up, and be playing their consoles in the UK. There is however one caveat. The trial is only being offered to customers living in London Zones 1-5 and the pre-order slots are extremely limited.
Darren Frost, Fast Track Delivery Lead at Argos, said:
“The launch of the Xbox One X is a momentous occasion in the gaming calendar and fans have been waiting patiently in anticipation of its release. We’re delighted to offer a selected number of our customers the ultimate in convenience, with a delivery right to their doorstep just after midnight – making them the very first in the UK to get their hands on this coveted console.
“Our Fast Track same-day delivery service is already market-leading, offering customers nationwide same-day delivery in just four hours, and we’re excited about getting customer feedback on this latest trial in evolving the service.”
Argos is set to reveal just how customers can apply for the limited pre-order slots via their Argos_Online Twitter account after 8am on Wednesday, October 25.
