How to pre-order the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

The next generation of consoles is close enough now that Sony and Microsoft have opened pre-orders for the PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

As expected, securing a pre-order at any retailer right now is proving difficult, with demand being pushed to its breaking point more than usual thanks to the logistical concerns associated with Covid-19 across the globe. 

But it’s not impossible, and there’s still a chance to secure a console for yourself right now. This article will take you to all of the retailers currently offering pre-orders for Microsoft’s duo of next-gen consoles. 

Sadly, you won’t find any juicy discounts or bundles right now with pre-orders having only opened earlier today, and the company wishes to remain conservative with what it can realistically provide consumers ahead of launch.

How to pre-order the Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X is now available for pre-order at a variety of retailers, although stock levels are fluctuating so you may need to keep an eye out once more become available. Sadly, shopping ahead of a console launch hasn’t gotten easier over the years. 

Right now, the majority of retailers ask you to register interest to be notified when pre-orders will once again be available.
