Welcome to our forums, and thank you for posting your question! After months and months of anticipation, it looks like we’re finally close to getting our hands on the Xbox Series X! I know I’ve been looking forward to the next generation of gaming for a while now, and I’m glad you’re interested in pre-ordering your console with us.
As I’m sure you’re aware, pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will begin next Tuesday, September 22. In regards to your questions, there isn’t any additional information I have to provide at this time, as we’ll need to wait for Microsoft to announce this information. All that said, I recommend keeping any eye on BestBuy.com, as well as signing up to be notified for when these pre-orders are available, which you can do here.

not only did i start to preorder the ps5 the night before it opened up around 5pm pacific time, and i spent hours trying to get past the check out it never let me, tis is a shame.
but when it happened tonight with the xbox x series i was on their 21st since 3pm past midnight 22nt to no avail it just keep saying coming soon

With a pre-order there is no deposite. You need to be able to commit the full amount.
About a week or more before release your card will be charged the full amount.
You can enter your gift cards in the checkout and it will use them.
I would suggest seeing if you can get a Best Buy Credit card. You may be able to get several months interest free financing.

So you guys planning to ever put it up to order, or just going to skip that part and go straight to everyone being mad at you again like the PS5 screw up last week? Hit refresh from about 10:57 to well after 11 and it never became active. Or else you have a serious problem in dealing with bots. I would have expected better from a tech company.

I have been on the site all morning trying to get in on the preorder, with the added complication of trying to upgrade my existing Xbox All Access membership, only to find every link on the site always saying "Coming soon." So what gives? Most of the other retailers got their systems open. Walmart sold out instantly the second I saw the button change (thanks extra hoops and slow checkout process of All Access). Gamestop at least put me "in line." Target never bothered updating their All Access page to include the new consoles (just says available in Nov.).
But, most frustrating is that your site just makes it look like nothing is happening at all. Like pre-orders never happened (which I'm sort of hoping for, because I might actually have a chance). But I'd be super annoyed if the "Coming soon" is really "sold out" and you just haven't updated any of the buttons...
