Xbox Series X and Series S consoles might be a day or two late locally

1 min read

Can’t decide which Xbox Series console to choose tomorrow? Well here’s some good news, because you’ll have a chance to buy an Xbox None depending on the retailer you were signed up with. Wait that’s bad news. Anyway, there may be a slight delay on when stock will be available, but it is coming. Distributor Prima Interactive says that due to some unforeseen logistical challenges, some stores in South Africa may receive their stock of the new Xbox Series X and Series S on Launch Day or possibly a day late.

“Prima Interactive advises that all the stock has been shipped to stores. There are always embargos on release of products like this with a World Wide release date. There is a very small window to get the stock out to stores, and sometimes despite the best plans, delays occur. We can confirm that all pre-orders will be met and your Xbox has been shipped to the store you ordered it from. If you haven’t received notification that it’s ready for collection or been shipped, please check with the store you ordered at for an update.”

It might take a day or two longer to go into next-gen, but rest assured, it’ll be worth it when the console does arrive.

    Very frustrating.

    I organised to be at home tomorrow to take the delivery. But now my Takealot delivery will only happen on Wednesday. And I’m going to be in meetings the whole day.

      This might be truer than we assume!

    According to Makro on my online profile, my console is supposedly packed. I phoned them today to ensure I was receiving it on time and they assured me I would. We’ll see. I don’t mind it being a day late, but I won’t be happy if I get it next week or later. The fact that I paid in full for it means I am somewhat less accepting of the delivery being super late.
