Nice! Did you order any games with it? What games are on your radar?

I'm nervous to get one day one given the launch history of xbox consoles. There also aren't any games that have grabbed my attention. Halo and Flight Simulator are my most anticipated but who knows when they will come out.

I'm also curious how much a Series X will improve my current games.

I'm planning on hitting D2: Beyond Light pretty hard at launch. Then Cyberpunk. I also cannot wait for Flight Simulator! But yeh, Halo is the big one for next year (was hoping for this year but...)

Well since you got the big fancy pants 4K Xbox X, maybe YOU should capture the cutscenes for the Halo Library instead of me :-p

Pretty much right where I am at. I think I'm going to wait until after Christmas to pick one up.

I missed it. I had a Series X in my cart at Best Buy for 30 minutes, but it kept erroring out of checkout and then it finally just told me they were out of stock.

Maybe they’ll get more stock before launch. I remember there being a few waves for the launch last generation, and I managed to snag one then.

This is what I'm hoping for

I got an Xbox Series X!

Grabbed a couple of PS5s with no issue.

I have decided against the Series S. The price is great, but the significantly gutted internals really don’t make it much better than the One X for me to justify the jump.

Wish I could have. Went to my local mall's gamestop before they even opened aaaaaaaaaaand they were already sold out by the time I got there. Had to ask one of the dudes to put me on a waitlist for in store pre-order availability, but who knows what's gonna happen with that.

In theory, I have... but I'm not so sure. It was so... painless for me. I did see some 503 errors when things hit 11 and the "race" started, but for me nothing really blew up or anything. I was in, information, and order confirmed. With all the news of Pre-order Shenanigans, I'm holding my breath at the moment that the shoe won't drop me a "We're Sorry" message. That the order can't be completed. On top of that, this apparent "victory" is partially pyrrhic. Pre-2020, there was a plan to save up and get not only a fresh box of tech, but a new tv as well. Unless the stars change for the better, I'll be playing on my increasingly long in the tooth 12 year old (more or less) 1080 tv. Frankly I shouldn't really be grabbing anything in the upper hundreds this year that doesn't feed or protect but, man... I want something nice this year, should it be allowed.

Legitimately, there was part of me that was asking if the reason I had the ease I did was because of the naming convention... and as it turns out, maybe. Maybe.

Remember, it's not XOX, it's XSX.

"Series" is an awful name for an iteration of a platform...

That does seem like a natural evolution of the XBONE

Scary Box
Sporty Box
Baby Box
Posh Box
Ginger Box

The posh box will do 8K 240 fps and cost a zillion dollars.

Remember, it's not XOX, it's XSX.

Not to be confused with SxS. I think this was just a dumb name all around.

Me.

Had Microsoft, Xbox, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart up in tabs and was refreshing 20 minutes before the top of the hour. I only ever got to the carts of Xbox and Target, but those both failed. Finally, nearly an hour later, I watched refresh to refresh as Amazon prepared their listing and refreshed past some “Oops somethings wrong” pages and snagged one.
