Unlike the PlayStation 5 pre-order disaster, Microsoft has left us with a neat and tidy schedule to prepare for its next-generation of gaming. Here’s to hoping Xbox Series S/X stock is in good order and the listings will stay live for more than a split second, but only time will tell now. Your best bet is to ready your favorite retailer(s) Xbox Series S/X listing for the moment it goes live to ensure you’re ready to go on day one. Head below for quick links and more details.

As if we needed anymore motivation, just yesterday, some 24-hours before pre-orders go live, Microsoft rocked the gaming world with one of the most exciting acquisitions in recent memory (or ever) as it welcomed the Bethesda family of game studios into the Xbox fold. That’s right, The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, DOOM, the upcoming Starfield and more are all now part of Xbox. What this means for exclusivity is still unclear, but securing a new Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X pre-order just got a lot more enticing.
