UK and UK retailers will open pre-orders for Microsoft’s next-gen console. Unlike the US, the UK has a designated pre-order date for the next-gen Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
According to Samuel Bateman, marketing lead for Xbox UK, the pre-orders for Xbox Series X and S, will go live on the 22nd of September at 8 AM. He also posted a couple of Q&A regarding the pre-orders and how the payment-shipment works.
Some frequent Q&A— Samuel Bateman (@samuelofc) September 15, 2020
💵If you purchase from Microsoft Store UK, payment is taken one day before dispatch of the console
💳Xbox All Access is only available via GAME and Smyths Toys for now
🏠Not *all* retailers are listed here. But these are the major ones
24 hours after the payment processes, the console will dispatch to the designated buyer. It feels lovely knowing that we’re getting closer to grasping one of the next-gen consoles in our hands.
