Got both X and S from Microsoft and another S from GameStop with day one delivery. EDIT: Got another X from a late restock at Best Buy.


Microsoft: Best checkout for manual users. Long page loads and errors entering payment and shipping. If you were fast and persistent, you could checkout. Stock lasted until two hours after release.
GameStop: The only queue, which was the right design. A couple cart resets, but this was the second best site for manual checkout. $18 extra for release day delivery.
Amazon: Order button went live for a minute but took you to an empty cart. Product pages were periodically dead. Unclear if they sold out immediately or ever had stock.
Best Buy: Went live over an hour late and got stuck at various stages of checkout. Waste of time (EDIT: Except for a late restock).
Target: Cart system fell over from the start. Never got further than account sign-in and cart kept emptying. Waste of time.

Get anything?

These are gonna resell so high because I highly doubt they have enough to go around just like the PS5.

Gotta love the freaking scalpers man. All they wanna do is make profit off people who just want to game. Shitty society but a quick buck is a quick buck. Sucks that you're right.

EDIT OT: Will probably go into best buy and get the Xbox Series X since all of my buddies still play Xbox and nobody owns a PS who I game with.

Got one off of best buy 3 hours after launch and going through every site possible. Hoping it doesn't get cancelled seeing all these people still preordering even hours after I got mine.

I got the XSX. Pumped! And nervous.

I managed to grab one on the MS website around 8 hours after launch so they're still restocking

Got an internal notice that we (Best Buy) would be serving preorders late so I managed to get one after a 2nd round of restocks.
