Microsoft confirms Xbox Series X preorder date while throwing a little shade towards Sony
Also, leaks point to an exact time for the Xbox Series X and Series S preorder.
If you’re ready to snag your next-generation console, you don’t have too long to wait. With both Microsoft and Sony laying almost everything out, gamers are starting to make their decisions. Well, they are trying to at least. Preorders for Sony’s PlayStation 5 have been a mess and Microsoft didn’t skip a beat on throwing a little shade.
In a tweet confirming the preorder date (September 22), Microsoft also made a note that it would let users know “the exact preorder time soon.” This is because Sony’s preorder times for the PS5 have been all over the place, with preorders getting canceled by online outlets left and right.
We already knew that preorders for the Xbox Series X and Series S would start on this date, but who doesn’t a love a little brand rivalry on their Twitter feed?
Pre-order 👉 September 22
Worldwide launch in 36 countries 👉 November 10
Hype 👉 9000+
