Insta-Forum: Did You Manage to Pre-Order a PS5 or Xbox Series X?

With pre-orders for both next-gen systems now available, how did you fare in picking up either a PS5 or Xbox Series X/Series S?

After what has felt like an especially extended wait, Microsoft and Sony have finally both taken off onto the road to next-gen with pre-orders now available for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Sony launched its pre-orders for the PS5 last week, while earlier today Microsoft began opening pre-orders at retailers for both of its consoles, the Xbox Series X and Series S.

It’s safe to say that the pre-order process for both platforms has been…less than ideal. But with pre-orders now open for the systems ahead of their November launches, we’re that much closer to finally getting our hands on the next-gen consoles and their line-ups of new games.

With that in mind, we’re turning to the DualShockers community to ask: Did you manage to get in pre-orders for either the PS5 or Xbox Series X/Series S (or both)? Which console did you end up going with? If you didn’t end up getting one, which system are you planning to get this holiday season? Let us know in comments below.

So far, personally I managed to get in pre-orders for both the PS5 Digital Edition and Xbox Series X, and my credit card is going to hate me for it in November. That said, hopefully as long as both pre-orders go through, I’ll be looking forward to jumping into next-gen in a little under two months with both platforms at launch, which is pretty exciting.

The Xbox Series X will launch first on November 10, 2020, while the PS5 will follow with its release starting in select countries on November 12, 2020, with a worldwide launch on November 19, 2020.
