If you end up getting both and my Amazon order gets canceled, save one for me. Lol.

Same @ BB. Sometimes a circle and redirect back to cart, sometimes it says "temporary problem."
The rationing of add-to-cart was nice, but not sure what's happening on the back end.

Your post reminded me to go check to see if my cart would advance, and now it said "Sorry out of stock".

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

I did Gamestop in store. Me and my buddy were first in line he got there at 8pm yesterday (!!!!) and I joined him around 1am. We set up chairs at the door and made a list. The next two people arrived a few minutes later. They had 10 Xs and 1 S. The last person in line that got one came around 5. We all worked as a team and cooperated with the list. Allowing us to leave for bathroom or snacks and stayed in our cars probably 90% of the time. Success!!

How does MS have any control over BB's site?

Glad to see Best Buy learned absolutely nothing since the PS5 debacle. Same old bullshit.

No dice for me this season... bummer. Was hoping to surprise my kid. I'm sure early next year they'll be all over the place.

To be fair, MS's own site crashed.

But yeah maybe it wasn't the greatest idea to announce a time for preorders (and then let two of the biggest US retailers ignore that time and open up like 50 minutes later).

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

It looks like there's very little in the way of accessories targeting the Series S/X. I see a Seagate drive, the updated controllers, and a new play and charge kit. For all I know, the play and charge kit might just be the same ol' battery with a USB-C cable, but I preordered it anyway. (So far, that's the only accessory I've ordered for either of the new consoles.) But since the idea is that you can use all your not-Kinect Xbox One gear, I guess it follows that there isn't much new.

Got one... apparently having it in my cart from an hour ago was just the luck I needed. Thanks for posting.

When is someone gonna set that sucker up?
And heads-up : When you set up your iFit account, you don't need to enter a credit card number. It will give you a free month of the family plan automatically. Then later you can redeem the card you got for another year (actually the card gave me another 13 mo FWIW). PM me if you have any questions about that.
