Best place to pre-order an Xbox Series X?

I fully expect to receive my order late in the afternoon given previous Amazon deliveries over lockdown, but I went with Amazon for the last reason you stated.

Same, its very rare I get an amazon delivery early in the day, its normally 2pm onwards. I just hope amazon have not fudged this console release up like they did with the xbox x.

Well its looking like game have cancelled my pre order.

Ordered online to collect in store - I got an email which I didn't spot (or more likely ignored suspecting they were trying to get me to buy more accessories) - the local store I was going to collect from is being closed and if I didn't give them my address to deliver to, they'd cancel it.

I missed the time cut off - but I've had zero response from Game from emails I sent them last weekend - just the usual "read the FAQ" crap.

I'm not that fussed about missing out to be honest - I'm more annoyed by Game going silent...

I thought most game shops had said they would hold the preorder until 48hrs after lockdown that was the plan maybe they screwed up on the email I received an email saying they were taking payment in full then a day later they said sorry we see your all access

I've since learned that my local store isn't closing - but rather its moved to the opposite side of the street.

I'm just hitting a wall with regards to correspondence from Game.

I'm expecting them to say they've cancelled my pre-order, or it may be in the shop or it might turn up at my door...

Try reach out to your stores Twitter page as I find that quicker than games online help

Amazon are stating mine will be arriving Tuesday. We've had deliveries around 9:00am before but whatever. I'm currently recovering from a operation and when I am due to back to back I can't because I fall under the medically vulnerable. So plenty of time to move my stuff over from my old xbox and have a play..
