Yesterday saw pre-orders for Microsoft’s next-generation consoles go live at retailers across the globe.
The Xbox Series X and Series S sold out very quickly, and while many shoppers managed to bag one, it seems some were left disappointed. But a tweet from the official Xbox account last night assures us that more consoles will be available to purchase on launch day, 10th November.
We are humbled by the record-breaking demand for Xbox Series X and S. Huge thanks to everyone for the excitement. ?
If you weren't successful today be sure to sign up with retailers for updates, and expect more consoles to be available on November 10. ?

Xbox also suggests to “sign up with retailers for updates”, which suggests more consoles may become available to pre-order sooner than November.
Either way, it’s good news for those of us who didn’t manage to secure a pre-order. It sounds like come 10th November, when the consoles are out in the wild, stores will have available stock on the shelves.
Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s flagship next-generation console, packing in eye-watering power and capability to play games at 120FPS and 4K resolution. The Xbox Series S is its younger sibling, so to speak, packing in still-powerful specs and the capability to play all the same games, but at 1440P resolution.
Xbox Series X retails for £449/$499, and Xbox Series S is £249/$299. Both consoles will be available on 10th November.
