Xbox Series X @ $34.99/month for 24 months = $839.76

 

Xbox Series S @ $24.99/month for 24 months = $599.76

 

Both include 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

My curiosity is - will they save your system as you are being processed?  Our credit is 720 right now, so I don't think that will be an issue.  However, I looked at the Xbox Access paperwork last week to get an idea of how it work (just looked at it for the regular Xbox One).  You have to input your standard credit info - social, birthday, address, etc.  There is no way to input the data in advance.  I didn't complete the process so I have no idea how long it takes to "process" you.  So, if I am there right at 11:00am EST and start the process, will someone be able to come in and grab the system I wanted out of my digital cart by paying up front?  Heck, are the "stockpiles" for regular pay and financing the same pool or separate?  Wish I knew up front.

I'm thinking best bet is to get a regular pre-order in as soon as you can, then go try All-Access. That's what I'm doing anyway

I wonder if this is how they do it - reinstate the page once it's live.

I believe Gamestop and Best Buy are two. I haven't studied the others.

You are a better person than me LOL.  I have camped out for almost every prior system since the PS2.  But, I am in my early 40s now and I just cannot rationalized it anymore - especially in a pandemic.  I got my PS5 preorder in last week out of luck.  Happened to be in the store talking to a friend when they went live in his system at 6PM.  Then I lucked out getting a "back up" on Amazon that evening.  So, I am going to try to preorder a Series X today, but my life is not over if I don't.  The delay of Halo Infinite - while necessary after seeing the development stuff last month - really means there is nothing exclusive right now for the X at launch that I have to have.  Sure, with the Bethesda deal, I will have one in the future.  However, I haven't heard of any of Bethesda's games coming in the near future, so I guess we have time to get past the launch window to acquire one worst case scenario.

28 painfully long minutes left. I can see the Microsoft site potentially crashing, so I am going to try to preorder the console directly through the store on my Xbox.

There's a section on the store to buy physical Microsoft products. Including consoles, and controllers. It's below the TV and Movies section. You just keep scrolling down the store page on your Xbox One, until you see the pictures of actual consoles. That's how people are buying them with Xbox gift cards.

...on the final morning how 2 Asian Ladies showed up and cut in line (little did they know that BB had already given us special tickets a few days prior). The look on their faces when they got to the cash register and were asked for their tickets was priceless!

Was it necessary to the story to know they were Asian?

I don't think any of these companies charge before shipping.  Some of them will put a pending charge on your card, so you'll want to make sure there's at least room on your card for that, but it should drop off after a few days and then you'll get the real charge when it ships.  The only company I know that charges before they ship anything is Limited Run Games.  From what I understand, in most states it's illegal to charge before shipping.

 

Edit: I misread my information.  I guess there's nothing wrong with charging before something ships.  I'm still almost positive that none of these retailers charge before shipped.

That makes me wonder if you can order it with the extra 1tb expansion card already inside. "Configure now" makes it sound like a PC.

I tested their checkout process a little bit ago on a One S.  They are all "Configure Now" and just let you add controllers and stuff.  I think this will be the same process.

Count me in as one trying to get a Series X from the MS Store. I converted my Gamestop credit to MS credit because I thought that Gamestop would not survive Covid-19 because they were dying before Covid-19.
