Xbox Series X and Series S pre-orders go live in less than two weeks, Microsoft has announced. Xbox pre-orders will be available starting on September 22, according to a listing that’s popped up on the official Xbox website. You can get all the details in our Xbox Series X pre-order guide.
Details on how exactly pre-orders will work have not yet been shared; the date went live on an Xbox.com page before they were subsequently announced by Phil Spencer in a post on Xbox Wire. We’ll report back as we learn more about how pre-orders will operate and where they’ll be available, but we do now know that Xbox Series X releases November 10 for $499.
We do know that, in addition to buying either of the consoles outright, you’ll also be able to purchase one through a payment plan known as Xbox All Access. As in the past, this bundles a console with 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $25 per month (Xbox Series S) or $35 per month (Xbox Series X).
Following a series of leaks, Microsoft finally confirmed this week what had long been expected: It will have two next-gen consoles launching later this year. Alongside Xbox Series X, Microsoft will offer Xbox Series S, a lower-priced model that targets 1440p resolution (as opposed to Series X’s 4K) and lacks a disc drive. It launches on November 10 for $299.
We know some of the games to expect in the next-gen Xbox launch window, but one big game that will now have to wait for next year is Halo Infinite, which was recently delayed. Both models will be competing with PS5, which Sony has still not announced a price or release date for but that we know is launching later this year.
