Xbox Series X and Series S preorders: Here’s where you can grab a console tomorrow

Seris X and S

The next generation of console gaming, is almost here. While you won’t standing outside your local CAN, clutching a fresh Edgars account card and thanking the gaming gods for six months free payment plans, you will still be able to grab one of Microsoft’s new consoles from a wide variety of retailers. Compared to Sony’s messy handling of PS5 pre-orders, Xbox Series X and Series S purchases seem to be ready for a smoother transaction.

Preorders will go live at 9AM on September 22, and you’ll be able to grab either the 4K monster that is the Xbox Series X for R11,999 or the more modest Series S at the budget friendly price of R6,999. That’s cheaper than a Nintendo Switch at its current prime price, and with Xbox Game Pass attached, you’ll soon be able to dip into a catalogue that’s about to have a whole lot of Bethesda content added to it.

Here’s where you can grab your console:

Good luck, and happy hunting!

      Unfortunately not. The list came directly from Prima Interactive, who are handling Xbox locally, so it looks like FNB won’t be offering any packages. For now at least.

    I made the plunge yesterday morning. Bought it from Makro. Now to wait an eternity for its release!!! When I pushed that PAY button and 12 grand went off of my credit card, I got that sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach – that feeling when you know you shouldn’t be doing this right now! The anguish us gamers are willing to go through for something we really want!!!
