XBOX SERIES X PRE-ORDERS ARE LIVE!
Original Story - The Xbox Series X will be launching November 10th.
Have you found yourself torn whether to buy one?
We're going to give you some reasons why this may be the console to you and a guide to pre-ordering.
Where Can You Buy An Xbox Series X In The UK?
You may have heard about the disaster that was pre-ordering the PS5 over the weekend.
If you don't know, Sony made pre-orders available with pretty much no notice and so customers were scrambling to get a hold of the console.
Sony has since stepped up and acknowledged they didn't handle this situation the best they could.
Time for Microsoft to shine. The creators of the Xbox have been fully transparent with fans about when they can pre-order, giving customers notice.
We're going to summarise where you can get your hands on the next-gen Xbox, but is it worth it?
There are plenty of things going for it, one thing I'm personally looking forward to is no more endless loading screens.
Using a custom NVMe SSD, the Xbox Series X could load a game like Sea Of Thieves in just 1-5 seconds in comparison to the usual 40!
With a beasty 12TF system, it's time to say hello to ray tracing and 8K resolutions, FINALLY.
There's loads to look forward to like a new controller design, Project xCloud, and so much more.
Find out below where you can purchase an Xbox Series X, how much it'll set you back and any pre-order deposits.
Xbox Series X Pre-Orders and UK Stock Checker
Some retailers will offer Microsoft’s All Access plan.
This plan means you won't have to pay upfront, instead, you'll get a Series X or S as well as 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, for £20.99 per month for 24 months with Klarna.
Some of the companies below will have pre-order pages live right now, here you can register interest before 8am.
It's probably best to actually load the sites at 8am instead of waiting for an email as they'll likely sell fast.
We’ll add more retailer links as they become available.
Amazon UK- Known as one of the biggest retailers in the world, Amazon doesn’t have a page for the Xbox Series S or X right now, and you can’t register interest either.
Check back for the pre-order pages at 8am BST.
Currys PC World - You can register interest through Currys PC World by clicking the link but you'll have to pay a non-refundable deposit of about £10.
They aren't doing the Xbox All Access plan, although they do have a 12-month flexible credit plan.
Argos - Head to the link to register interest through Argos for the Series X and S. Argos took payment upfront in full with the PS5 pre-orders so Xbox may follow suit.
Some PlayStation customers have also reported their pre-orders being cancelled so keep this in mind.
ShopTo- ShopTo is charging 1p to register interest for the Series X.
Of course, the Xbox All Access scheme is available through the Microsoft Store.
John Lewis - There are currently no actives sites in relation to the next-gen consoles but we'll update this piece when we know more.
Although this could be one of the more popular sites for consumers in the UK.
Tesco - There's nothing on Tesco site currently about next-gen. It's likely it will at 8am, on the link, which is for Tesco's pre-order website.
Smyths Toys – Click the link to register interest for both next-gen consoles at Smyths!
AO.com – No sign of the Series X at present but AO is on Microsoft's list of UK retailers so be sure to check back on the day of release.
Box.co.uk – Currently no information on the Series X, but the S is available so they may only be stocking the Series S for now. Check back at 8am just to be sure!
Carphone Warehouse – You can register interest on the website, but only for the Xbox Series X.
SimplyGames – Everything should become available at 8am on the link. One of Microsoft's listed UK retailers so they should have stock.
Very – Like Argos, Very will take a full amount upfront when pre-ordered. Register your interest on the link.
Stay tuned for more pre-order updates and stock checking as we get them!
