Best Buy has stopped taking Xbox One pre-orders, both in stores and online.

The Best Buy website, on which the Xbox One Day One Edition is the only console listed, says pre-orders are "sold out online," and customers cannot place orders for in-store pickup, either.

We called a Best Buy store and were told that pre-orders were no longer being accepted, although the store employee noted that there's a chance the big-box retailer will reopen pre-orders after it gets a better idea of the stock it will have at launch. Best Buy is still accepting pre-orders for PlayStation 4 consoles and bundles.

GameStop ceased in-store Xbox One pre-orders last month, although customers can still head to its website and pre-order the console. The Day One Edition is sold out on Amazon, but the online retailer is offering a pre-order of a "Standard Edition." Wal-Mart is still taking pre-orders for Xbox One consoles and customizable bundles.
