Xbox Series X and S latest – New console sells out ‘within minutes’ as stores plan new pre-orders
THE new Xbox Series X and S consoles went on sale around the world this morning – with most stores selling out within minutes.
It’s no surprise they flew off the shelves: The £449 machine boasts 8k graphics and a powerful processor that all but eliminates loading times.
Earlier John Lewis confirmed they’d kept stock aside for 8am today – but that sold out at record speeds.
GAME released some stock later in the day but also sold out quickly.
In the UK, it appears all retailers have sold out until further notice. In the US, most stores are also out of stock but Gamestop has released some in recent hours.
Those who miss out will have to wait patiently for restocks if they’re to have any chance of bagging a console in time for Christmas.
Due to sky-high demand and the coronavirus pandemic, most UK and US retailers have only sold the console online.
That means you can’t walk into a store and grab one, unless you pre-ordered a console back in September.
