Auctions ended May 30 received bids of $455, $485, and $510 in an effort to pre-purchase the hardware from sellers prior to release.

Microsoft has not yet disclosed release date or pricing information for the Xbox One. As a result, retailers including GameStop Corp., Best Buy Co. Inc. and Inc. have not begun pre-order sales for the hardware.
