UPDATE 2 - November 24th
We're hearing that multiple retailers in the UK are putting up additional Xbox Series X|S stock for preorder today — Game has units available now but only as bundle deals, while Currys PC World are reportedly going live with theirs from 1pm UTC today. It stands to reason that other outlets (and perhaps territories) may also be getting a second wave today, so we've refreshed this story so you have everything you need if you're still trying to get your hands on one of the new consoles. Good luck!
Unsurprisingly, most retailers sold out of their initial allocations of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles in a matter of minutes. If you still haven't managed to secure one, never fear — Microsoft has assured us that there will be additional units available before and at launch, and we've already seen several outlets put out second waves of preorders. Some are also relisting trickles of stock following cancellations and payment rejections, so the odd one is going to pop up from time to time even outside of a full restock. If you don't want to keep mindlessly clicking these links until you find somewhere that has preorders available, give us a follow on Twitter (@TrueAchievement) and we'll shout there as and when these sites replenish stock. Congratulations if you managed to get yours already — let us know how your experience was — but if not, there's still hope, and also still plenty of time before the consoles release on November 10th. Good luck!
Xbox Series X/S preorders are now live across the world! Here's a handy round-up of outlets covering a bunch of regions, complete with pricing to help you make the right choice when you prepare to dive into the next generation of gaming. Take your pick from a number of different stores, with plenty of backup options on hand should your first choice run out of stock before you manage to get hold of your new console. Some links currently just lead to landing pages for the new consoles, but don't worry — we'll swap those out for proper product page links as soon as they go live.
