Go to BestBuy online and keep hitting refresh. Even though it says "coming soon" in gray, they are actually releasing preorders all day. Probably once every 30 min, it goes to a yellow "preorder" box. I just got a Series X at 4:30pm EST.

My wallet told me I couldn't. Unless I was going on a Campbell soup diet for the next year.

Been checking sites daily, still nothing. At microsoft.com, I have a series X and a series S still in my cart and it won't let me check out.

The plan was to get two Series S consoles (one for me and one for my son) but it limits quantity to one so I guess I'll get the X. Eventually.

It took me about 20 mins. Site was really slow at MS and had to refresh page numerous time.

Did you get an email confirmation because I didn't, but I called the MS store customer service and the rep said it's a known issue.

Yes, I did get a conformation right after I placed my order.

I doubt it will be exclusive exclusive. Maybe like early release on Xbox then later on other platforms. Remember, Microsoft is here to make money.

Hardware, Xbox will be better, but who knows about software.

Ok going to wait around this time for the "pro" versions to release in a couple of years. Too busy anyways like the other guy above that prefers to stay fit and get laid.

I only play 2-3 games a year. This year it was Battlefield V and I jump between Forza Motorsport 7 and some Project Cars 2.

I got STAR WARS Squadron the other day, but now I really want VR. I honestly don't know what to get next... maybe just a gamer PC so I can play more VR games and Asseto Corsa mods.

Was able to snag a standalone Series S on Microsoft's website today.

So my son's set for Christmas. Now to try and get myself a Series X.

Well, snagged another Series S so I guess we'll both have S consoles.

I had a Xbox 360 when it was newly launched. Then I bought PS4 and sold Xbox 360 and I liked the PS4 more. So, I will go with PS 5.

I haven't had a console since my PS2 (and briefly a Wii). A year ago or so, everywhere I went people wouldn't shut up about Red Dead Redemption 2 so I thought I'd pick up a console. In researching between Sony and Xbox, I read that both had new consoles coming out somewhat soon so I held off on buying one. I recently bought a Sony TV and figure I'll just stick with that brand.

It looks like RDR2 will be playable on the PS5. I plan on playing that until a new Gran Turismo comes out. My friends have been playing Madden for 20+ years and I won't have the time and/or ability to catch up to their skill level so I'll look for a sports game that they don't play, like FIFA.

Honestly if RDR2 is what you're looking to play I'd go with a PC. It was released on PC after the console releases with a ton of visual upgrades.
