Xbox Series X | S Dispatch thread.

I bought one of these from Argos. Fairly cheap and basic, but very sturdy and nice and wide with plenty of room for a horizontal PS5 on one of the shelves and will put the XBX standing up on top since my TV is wall mounted. Most importantly plenty of airflow on all sides instead of enclosures with closed backs/sides.

Did anyone also order the expansion card from Microsoft along with the console? Obviously not desperate for it, but strange they haven't despatched it in with the console itself. Mine still says pre-ordered and estimated date 11th. What a waste if they send them separately. 

Mine is still showing 11th

I got on the chat with Amazon (Singapore) today. They confirmed that whilst they’re getting stock tomorrow they don’t plan to ship my Series X till the 18th!  W. T. F.?!

 

The person on the live chat said they’d see if they could dispatch it sooner but it was unlikely. Bah.

Lol at Amazon. For two months it’s said arriving 10th. Yesterday they send email about upgrade to release day delivery. Today I get this.

I know it doesn’t mean much and it’ll probably still come tomorrow but for fuck sake. Sort it out. 
 

I’m not hugely fussed to be honest but it would be nice to know what’s going on. 

 

Did you get an order update email yesterday saying it was confirmed for the 10th?

I got this email from Amazon Germany the other day:

I think my X will probably go next to a speaker and I’ll shift the WiiU onto a shelf. Annoyingly though the height of the X means it will be slightly taller than the bottom of the tv, which means I’ll have to try and raise it a bit. Don’t really want to do that though as it’s at perfect eye level from the sofa. Will see how it looks when it turns up. I’ve not heard anything from Argos yet....

Out of interest do you have Amazon Prime?

Yep, my scepticism turned out to be well placed - it changed to "dispatched" and still showed the 11th/12th November, but I didn't get the email. Then the email came through and it will now be delivered on the 18th. 

 

Which isn't the end of the world, but is a bit of a bummer when you hold a date in your head and look forward to it. When they didn't dispatch it before the weekend I wondered if it might get here in time. 

 

It's annoying, as it goes on sale online in Japan in an hour and a half. Had they dispatched it two hours later I could have tried my luck getting one here (didn't manage to with the preorders). Had I known it was going to be over a week late j would have probably just attempted that anyway. 

 

Still, at least Beyond Light is out Wednesday. On my crappy old Victorian console.
