While pre-orders for launch stock of the PlayStation 5 sold out within an hour at EB Games Australia, that past experience combined with knowledge of an exact time orders would commence, appears to have contributed to Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles reaching their pre-order capacity within 15 minutes at EB Games Australia.
After officially opening orders at 8.00am this morning, by 8:14am the following was statement via EB Games’ social media channels.
UPDATE: Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S LAUNCH Shipment has now presold out.— EB Games Australia (@EBGamesAus) September 21, 2020
There will be a small shipment expected POST LAUNCH 2020. Current expected presell time of Midday AEST.
As highlighted in the statement above, you may need to look at other retailers if you desperately want to get launch stock of either the disc-supporting, powerhouse Xbox Series X or compact, digital-only Xbox Series S. Alternatively, keep an eye on the EB Games Australia website for word on precisely when pre-orders for post-launch 2020 consoles will open for pre-order.
