How to Pre-Order the Microsoft Xbox Series X


Microsoft hasn’t announced Xbox Series X pricing or launch dates, but major retailers are gearing up to accept pre-orders. Here’s where you’ll be able to buy the next-gen Xbox.

COVID-19 has thrown the global supply chain and retail market into disarray, but Microsoft says it’s still on track to release the Xbox Series X in time for the 2020 holiday season.

At this point, we know what the next-gen Xbox looks like, and we got a sneak peek at some of the games it’ll support. We don’t yet know how much it’ll cost or exactly when it’ll hit store shelves. For now, Microsoft has only said it’ll arrive in November. Major retailers, however, are gearing up to accept pre-orders, and you can prepare by signing up to get notifications about how to buy. We’ll update this story as more details are revealed.

Best Buy

On Best Buy, you can sign up to be notified when the Xbox Series X goes on sale.


GameStop will also take your email and notify you when Xbox Series X pre-orders are live.


When you visit Walmart’s Xbox Series X placeholder page, a pop-up will ask you to enter your email address and sign up to receive “exclusive content, news and deals from Walmart.”

Though Amazon’s Xbox Series X placeholder page has an “Email Me” graphic, clicking it currently takes you to the Amazon listing, and there’s no option to enter an email. You can add it to an Amazon wishlist, however.
