Trying to avoid the PS5 pre-order catastrophe after Sony failed to give a heads up to those looking to own a next-gen system, Microsoft is detailing with anticipation all the information needed for those looking to acquire a new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.
The company has posted an official blog spot in which they explain all the available options players will get when it comes to buying a next-gen system, which will launch next 10th November, coming in at 9 for the Series S, and 9 for the Series X, with prices varying across regions.
Unlike Sony and their PS5, which will have a staggered release, fans of Microsoft will be able to get their hands on the new Xbox of their choosing simultaneously at the same time.
But, how do you go about pre-ordering it? Here are all the details.
