BT have launch day Xbox Series X|S stock for BT and EE customers

Alongside Game, BT have also announced that they will have some launch day stock of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with the caveat that it is available exclusively for BT broadband and EE mobile customers.

BT customers will have to log into their MyBT account to spot the offer, with consoles and a range of accessories to be made available, while EE customers have the option to throw the cost of the their next-gen console on top of their existing mobile contracts, paying through 11 interest-free instalments with the Add to Plan service.

It’s touted as a new partnership between Microsoft and BT, as BT look to strengthen their position as a partner for gaming companies. They were also the first European network to partner with Google Stadia back in January.

Stock will likely be quite limited, and hopefully this isn’t the only avenue that punters have to pick up a launch day console – Game announced yesterday that they will have launch day PlayStation 5’s next week.

Is the Xbox Series X worth they outlay? We’d say so, if you prefer the green team over the blue. The console is fast, it’s clearly very powerful and it builds on the Xbox One X. You’ll see a huge jump forward if you’re coming from a base Xbox One or PlayStation 4, but might be feeling there’s a lack of meaningful exclusives on day one.

We said in our Xbox Series X review:

The Xbox Series X is the continuity candidate. It’s built on the foundations of familiar system software and comprehensive backward compatibility that actively enhances everything you want to play on it (within limits) and it’s effectively silent no matter how hard we’ve pushed it. At this time we’re still on the outer threshold of what it can offer for the next gen gaming, but we’ll explore that over the coming days, weeks and months. What’s certain is that you’ll want a high-end TV or monitor to get the very best out of it, and that if you’re coming from a base PS4 or Xbox One in particular, this will be a huge step forward.

  1. It’s a shame this wasn’t a deal with PlayStation. Considering I only pay £6 a month already, I’d have jumped at the chance to spread the cost of a PS5 out over my mobile bill!

    As it stands now, due to no longer being able to try pick one up in person on launch day, and with the unlikelihood of being able to get one online (plus, not wanting to pay Game the £10 delivery), I guess ill just have to wait a wee while longer. Maybe there’ll be a couple of quid off any new stock in the January sales? 🤞

    On the other hand… Maybe I should ignore it all together and get back to living life instead of hoarding the rather meaningless virtual trophies.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Also, off topic, does anyone else have trouble logging in to the site? If I click the log-in button in the comments section and try from there the Captcha doesn’t load and says my username or password is invalid. I only just managed to log-in via the top menu, though I can’t remember if this has always worked (captcha still didn’t load using that link). I’m on mobile with the latest Android update and using brave browser.
