If you’re still trying to track down a Xbox One for launch this coming Friday, you might want to see if there’s a Microsoft Store in your area. According to GameSpot and IGN, Microsoft will have a limited supply on sale at midnight on November 22nd. As with any big gaming release that is not pre-ordered, it will be first come first serve for these systems, so you might want to get there early if you’re hoping to purchase a console from a Microsoft Store.

The other image shows what it looks like if you select an individual achievement. Seems like it will be a lot of work to see which achievements you have, unless Microsoft has included a toggle to go back to list view.
