Microsoft will open pre-orders for its next-generation consoles on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 a.m. PDT/11 a.m. EDT. Those eager about shopping for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles can order from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, GameCease, Newegg, Walmart, and Army and Airforce Exchange Service.
On Wednesday, Microsoft threw a little bit shade at its competitor, Sony, which had a chaotic pre-order frenzy. “Don’t worry — we’ll let you know the exact time pre-orders start for you soon,” Microsoft tweeted. Shortly after timing and pricing for the brand new PlayStation consoles was introduced on Wednesday, pre-orders began surprise-opening at sure retailers, regardless of official phrase saying it’d start Thursday. Websites crashed, and consoles shortly bought out.
Microsoft seems to be attempting to keep away from the same state of affairs, giving folks time to plan their buys.
