This is my first-time pre-ordering a console and what an awful experience. 

I initially planned on getting it from Microsoft store or Amazon:

Microsoft store: I initially got my pre-order on Microsoft store but the site crash during check out and when it reloaded kept saying only one order per customer.By the time I reloaded the site, Xbox series X was sold out. 

While this is happening Amazon's pre-order never came live. 

So, I tried Best-buy and Wal-mart; Wal-mart was sold out. Best-buy did have pre-order available and I got as far as my credit card processing screen then I got an error. After, that I kept getting the same error everyone is posting on Twitter. 

By this time it's been over an hour since pre-order opened and I was ready to move on and wait for the next round. 

Luckily, I decided to check out why Amazon page wasn't giving pre-order and I must of check just as it open about 1.5 hours after the Xbox series X pre-order open and got my pre-order in from Amazon.ca. Pre-order on amazon were gone in a matter of minutes.  

There are now 1500 Xbox series X available on Ebay. My goal was to try to secure two consoles from Microsoft and Amazon in case there shipping problems and sell my second consoles to someone at costs. But, I barely got my hand on one pre-order.

this is also my first time attempting a preorder for a console and yeah this is a mess so far, no luck for me yet

trying to get a series x with all access but a lot of the all access pages don't even seem to be up? walmart and best buy both just still say "coming soon" despite it being like 2 hours now

trying on the microsoft store just keeps giving a sign in error 



Yeah got my Series X pre-ordered. Smooth sailing in this Sonyland.



Was a struggle but thankfully amazon came through. Got an X



X for me.

No. I dont do pre order but good luck getting one. The consensus is that the allocation is pretty low, lower than ps5.



Preordered a Series S. Seemed like a great idea for someone still gaming on a 1080p display... then a few hours later I ordered a 4k monitor...

But I don't have enough money for both 4k monitor and Series X anyway, I think I'll be happy with what the series S offers for it's very low price.

What about Microsofts payment plan? Is that not available right now?

I already have gamepass ultimate paid until April 2022, so the monthly payment doesn't really make sense for me.



First time pre-ordering anything. Managed to get a series X from BestBuy after many attempts. Everywhere else was down.
