Xbox Series X And Series S Preorder Availability: Consoles Sold Out, Accessories Available
The Xbox Series X and Series S just appeared at Best Buy, but they're popping in and out of stock, so you'll have to keep trying.
Two new Xbox consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, are launching in a matter of weeks, but unless you've been exceptionally lucky, you may not have been able to secure a preorder yet. The Series X and Series S release November 10 for $500 and $300, respectively, and as of now, finding either in stock is near-impossible. That said, we're tracking console availability below along with all the major listings.

Preorder Xbox Wireless Controllers
The new Xbox Wireless Controllers releasing alongside the Xbox Series X and Series S are available in Carbon Black, Robot White, and Shock Blue. They feature a more ergonomic design; textured grips on the bumpers, triggers, and back case; and an Elite controller-inspired hybrid D-pad for improved precision. The updated controllers also have a new integrated Share button for capturing and recording gameplay moments.
Preorder games for Xbox Series X and Series S
Microsoft is pushing its Xbox Game Pass subscription for next-gen, which grants access to a massive, rotating library of games for a monthly fee, including the ability to play first-party games like Halo Infinite on day one. You can still preorder some of the biggest games coming to Xbox Series X and Series S now.
Coming soon: Xbox All Access
As an alternative to paying upfront, you'll be able to take advantage of Microsoft's Xbox All Access program, which lets you pay for your Xbox Series X or Series S console over 24 months. If you opt for the Xbox Series X, you'll pay $35 per month, while the Xbox Series S will cost you $25 per month.
Opting for Xbox All Access will actually save you money in the longterm, as the payment plan includes Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which comes with Game Pass for both PC and console, xCloud game streaming, Xbox Live Gold, and an EA Play subscription. The Xbox Series X payment plan will cost you $840 total, a $19 savings when you consider the console is $499 and Game Pass Ultimate over two years is $360. You'll save even more with the Xbox Series S payment plan, which will cost you $600 total and save you $59 on the price of the console and Game Pass Ultimate over two years.
We expected Xbox All Access to become available alongside general console preorders, but it was not available for signups the day preorders opened. Listings at stores like Best Buy and Walmart still say "coming soon." We'll update this story when Xbox All Access officially becomes available. In the meantime, see our guide to what you need to know about Xbox All Access for more info.
