    I went for a Series S purely for Game Pass and the digital games I've obtained over the years on a big TV. It should compliment my PC which is my main gaming 'system'.

    My order literally says "Estimated delivery November 10". "Estimated" gives them their excuse not to, but my expectations have been set. I imagine there would be a fair few unhappy bunnies if they don't get it that day.

    MS even with "Express Delivery" usually show "Estimated" with a 2-day range; generally though its a UPS Next Day Delivery

    I have no idea how you guys who are phoning up MS are getting these helpful people, I ve had 3 women tell me they are out of stock in every country then one said she would check stock in Poland and Ireland then tapped on her keyboard in a very fakery way and shot back with "I told you, out of stock sir"

    thanks for the info here. Just done the same and now have pending payment on my account. What a nightmare. Best had come on release day due to preordered on first day they released them.

    Probably shipped via Hermes so they must be accounting for delays, "missed" delivery, etc. :p

    Interesting reading all these reviews. There are still embargoes in place preventing full disclosure of some things. Like they are not allowed to talk about DiRT 5 because it has performance issues right now nor Quick Resume on X|S Optimized games because it doesn't work properly and AC Valhalla is 60fps on XSX but 30fps on XSS.

    The Ars.Technica man spilled all the above.

    The sooner 10th and 12th November come and no-one can be gagged anymore, the better if you ask me.

    TV confirmed delivery on the 9th, Xbox on the 10th. Lovely. Got a long weekend from 12th - 16th too.

    Ended up buying the plug in Seagate NVME drive, £220 definitely feels like im getting bent over but the simplicity of it and the 'shiny new things' got the best of me.

    Not sure it really warranted a separate review but for anyone interested:
