At present both links say they are out of stock, so get hammering that F5 key at 11.59am on November 19th.

Those with a pre-order from Amazon UK are being emailed by the company to say their consoles are on track to arrive on November 19th so we’re hoping everything goes smoothly, but in the past week we have seen that may not be the case. Those over in the US with an Xbox Series X|S preorder had the worst deal as Amazon are suggesting the console might not arrive until the start of 2021.

We’re contacting you with an update regarding your order of Xbox Series X. We expect to ship your console in the coming weeks as we receive more inventory in November and December. At this time, we anticipate that you will receive your Xbox Series X by 12/31 or before. We are making every effort to get it to you as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience

Over here the UK the delays seem to be shorter but people are still miffed that Amazon have moved the delivery date at such short notice, with many having taking the day off to accept the delivery including industry professionals.

It’s not just the consoles that were delayed, Amazon UK warned that Xbox launch day games such as The Falconeer are also suffering severe delays and may not arrive until 2021. This message has been sent to one of the TSA Staff.

PlayStation 5 customers in the UK have had the opposite experience as their games and controllers have already arrived but they have to wait for the console on Thursday.

  1. Hmmm, tempting. I purposely didn’t preorder one because Cyberpunk was gonna come out the same day. I can wait the extra time to December 10th, but if they delay again that’ll be pretty annoying to be without either Cyberpunk or a PS5…

  2. Shush!

    First rule of “MrYd still needs to order a PS5 club” is “don’t tell everyone there are going to be PS5s available to order”.

    • We are not a member of your club.

      • I just wanted to shush you for a change, really ;)

  3. Don’t forget to sign-up for the reminder email on Amazon. Also, the links above are affiliate links for Eurogamer / Digital Foundry. TSA should update those with their own Affiliate ID!

    • If you rely on an email from Amazon when they’re available, you’ll probably be too late. By the time they send them all (I’m sure there’ll be lots going out) and your email client gets around to checking for new mail, you’ll probably have missed the chance.
