The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will usher in a new generation of consoles. They release on 10th November 2020 for $499.99 and $299.99, respectively. The price difference is due to the Xbox Series S being much smaller than the Series X, and no disc drive. Both will be backwards compatible with games across all of the Xbox generations.

For those eager to get their hands on one of the new Xbox consoles, pre-orders will soon be live. 22nd September 2020 is the date pre-orders become available for both the Series X and Series S versions. It should be much simpler and, hopefully, much less chaotic than the pre-orders for the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition.

Microsoft is also offering a program called Xbox All Access. It is considered the all-inclusive pass to the console. It gives players the option of paying for their new Xbox system monthly. Xbox All Access includes a next-gen Xbox Console with 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $24.99 for 24 months.

This can be pre-ordered at the same time as the standalone consoles at the following retailers:

  • United States - Best Buy, GameStop, Microsoft Store, and Walmart
  • Australia - Telstra
  • New Zealand - Spark
  • United Kingdom - GAME and Smyths Toys
  • Denmark - Elgiganten
  • Finland - Gigantti
  • Norway - Elkjøp
  • Sweden - Elgiganten

Xbox All Access will be available in Canada, France, Poland, and South Korea before the consoles release, but pre-orders will not start on 22nd September for those countries.
