    GameStop stores are carrying less XBX and XBS than PS5 and PS5D. I don’t take that as an indication of less stock available than Sony had, but I do want you all to plan accordingly.

    Sounds like the pre ordering in the U.K. and Australia was similar to the PS5 experience, even through MS. Be prepared.

    my thought is that most go with the 35/month option and since that’s not offered on amazon, that’s the best bet so I’m doing the same. Plus their logistics/shipping network is the best so I should get it the day it comes out unless the ordering is a shitshow. I can’t see that website going down though. I was going to do the 35/month option but I really only play 3-5 games a year and those games are never on game pass when I want them.

    That's a good point (except not wanting GamePass). Amazon's website shouldn't go down and I trust their delivery even in a pandemic. I got the Xbox One X through Amazon and it was delivered on the release date. Fingers crossed it works the same way. I can do Best Buy curbside pick up if it doesn't work out

    If you buy something pre-order on Amazon can you change shipping address before its shipped?

    From Reddit, it sounds like Amazon and Microsoft are still up and selling pre-orders in the UK. May be the best bets.

    They have new controllers (very minor changes) but you can use the same controllers from X1. Any software or hardware that works on X1 will work on the Series X/S.

    Microsoft crashing at checkout screen, amazon doesn't even have a link you can click, bestbuy still says coming soon, and target just does nothing. Why didn't I just jump in my car and drive to best buy. lol
