The Xbox Series X launch is done: The new Microsoft console is available from today. The Xbox One successor has been available for pre-order since September 22nd: If you wanted to hold one of the new consoles in your hands on launch day, you had to be quick – the contingents were sold out within a very short time. However, reports are currently making the rounds on the Internet that some players cannot expect delivery of their pre-ordered Xbox Series X today. Amazon USA is currently informing customers that the console will "be able to be delivered in the coming weeks if new contingents are available again".
"I am extremely disappointed with Amazon," writes Twitter user Eric Nawrocki, who made the merchant's e-mail public via the short message service. "I pre-ordered my Xbox Series X on September 22nd, as soon as it was available," the user wrote, adding that he had not received an update on how his order was sent before receiving the email. Amazon, in turn, announces that it will receive further contingents in the course of November and December. "We are currently assuming that you will receive your Xbox Series X by December 31st or earlier," said Amazon. On Twitter, the company adds that the consoles will be shipped in November and December when new stocks arrive due to high demand. Users will receive an email as soon as their order has been shipped.
