Sony's pre-order rollout for the PlayStation 5 was a little confusing, to put it lightly, but it looks like pre-ordering the Xbox Series S/X will be a lot easier. In the name of transparency, Microsoft detailed exactly when gamers can pre-order next gen Xbox systems. Here's what you need to know in order to pre-order an Xbox Series X and Series S.
When can you pre-order an Xbox Series console?
Pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and Series S kicks off on September 22 at 11 AM ET / 8 AM PT. For those interested in nabbing a system day one, the new consoles will be available at all major retailers including GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Amazon, Newegg, and more.
The Xbox Series X will retail at $499 with the Series S coming in at $299. Pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 are already up, though they went live a day early on September 16, which caused a fluster of confusion and frustration for many that were looking to get their pre-order in the moment that option became available.
Both systems look incredible and with services and hardware alike making next gen look incredibly appealing, it's easy to see why hype is so high.
Which system appeals to you more as your first purchase for next gen, or are you putting down the cash for both at the same time? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below!
