Just like its rival, the PS4, there are still a handful of gamers who are trying to get their hands on an Xbox One console. Thankfully, there are new deals and stocks that are coming in to appease those who are trying to get their next-gen fix.

For now, an update from George Keighley's Twitter account has announced that the Xbox One has already reached 909,132 units in November for the U.S.

In Xbox One Reddit, a new announcement spotted by SoulVision offered the Xbox One Launch Edition with a $10-off discount and even free shipping through Woot. This means that you can get the console for only $489.99. You can check out the page here and see if you should take up this offer.

Another deal comes from Argos, which offers the Xbox One at £429.99. While there are no game add-ons or freebies with the offer, you can easily include a £57.99 three-year breakdown care for the Xbox One or the £19.99 Xbox One Play Charge Kit to your deal. More essentials can be seen in the Argos page above, as well as some Xbox One games that you can already purchase. Apparently, you can get your delivery before Christmas, so this may be a good deal to grab while it's still available.

Xbox One heading to China first?

So far, the console war between the PS4 and the Xbox One has yielded fairly close results, with the two consoles covering similar grounds in terms of unit sales.

Back then, there have been speculations that, with China's opening of the country to videogame consoles, the one that manages to cover the bigger ground may be the console that grabs the win. And it seems that Xbox One is aiming for that very title.

Tech In Asia reports that the Xbox One will be heading to the Chinese mainland come September 2014, at least according to a Chinese article. This report states that Microsoft and BesTV of China may be coming into a joint-venture, and that part of it will put the Xbox One into China.

However, instead of a videogame console, the report claims that the Xbox One will be used more as a multimedia device rather than a gaming machine, as there are still rumours that the 13-year ban has not yet been fully lifted.

In whatever manner the Xbox One enters China, it seems that Microsoft is eyeing that target market this early on in the game--and the next question is whether or not Microsoft can lay claim on that territory to get ahead of the PS4.
