Xbox Series X Orders Are Being Delayed Worldwide by Retailers

Xbox Series X

Microsoft's latest console(s), the Xbox Series X|S, is being delayed worldwide by retailers such as Amazon US, UK, and Canada. For some, this is a day or two of delays, while for some they have been told not to expect their console until the end of the year. As reported by Eurogamer, IGN, and a growing list of accounts on Twitter, this appears to be a worldwide phenomenon as many people who expected to receive their console today will be left disappointed and in the metaphorical cold.


Quick Take

Of course, in the grand scheme of things a day or two (or three) isn't the biggest deal, but to see the shipping delays for Microsoft's newest console(s) is interesting. You'd think it wouldn't be that big of a deal for people who managed to get an order and have that order confirmed, but apparently, it is a big deal. I actually may see a day's worth of delay for my PlayStation 5 order, as I'm supposed to receive it on the 13th instead of the 12th, but that's small potatoes compared to potentially receiving a pre-order on 12/31/2020. Hopefully, everyone receives their pre-orders soon.
