Update, 14:50 PT: As with the PS5 and Xbox Series S, it seems like the first round of Xbox Series X pre-orders sold out at most retailers immediately. If more devices become available, we will notify you here.
We have been waiting for about a year. But as0 and Xbox pre-orders are now open (from 8 am PT / 11 am ET). After the train wreck it was console (coming November 12) is almost here, along with the less powerful but cheaper Xbox series S. The Xbox will not ship until November 1 , when retailers pulled the trigger early and sold out, in some cases within minutes, hoping here Microsoft’s big day goes smoother.
When the pre-order started, there have been many exciting news that can affect your upcoming console decision. GameStop has announced. For example, an unwanted Xbox One X or an old PS4 Pro is worth $ 200, while a 500 GB Xbox One can drop $ 100 off the price of your new Xbox. Or if you want to buy your next console more like a smartphone – on an installment plan – there is Xbox All Access, which allows you to get a , no cost in advance.
And that’s not all: If you’re still on the fence between Xbox and PS5, you should know that Microsoft has just announced a deal to buy ZeniMax Media, a parent of Bethesda Studios. Should the deal close as expected, it would make Microsoft the owner of Doom, Fallout, Skyrim and other A-list franchises. It is currently unclear how this will affect the future gaming landscape, but it could mean anything from Xbox getting future Bethesda games first – or perhaps getting them exclusively or seeing them quickly tracked to Xbox Game Pass. There are many opportunities, to be sure.
