September 22 was a big day for Xbox, with preorders for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles opening up worldwide. Similar to the preorder situation with the PlayStation 5, it was something of a fiasco for the new Microsoft consoles. Despite that, Microsoft’s next-gen consoles got off to a hot start, it seems.
“We are humbled by the record-breaking demand for the Xbox Series X and S,” Microsoft said on Twitter. “Huge thanks to everyone for the excitement.”.

If you weren’t successful today be sure to sign up with retailers for updates, and expect more consoles to be available on November 10. 💚

For those who didn’t get an Xbox on the first preorder day, Microsoft advised people to speak with their preferred retailer for updates on preorder availability. The company also mentioned that it will have additional stock of the new consoles available for launch on November 10.
