Couldn't get a PS5? Xbox Series X pre-orders start next week in the UK and US

MICROSOFT has revealed exactly when you’ll be able to pre-order an Xbox Series X and S at the end of this month.

You can put your name down for a console on September 22 but where you are in the world will determine what time you can order.

In the UK, you can pre-order the consoles at 8am BST from participating retailers.

These retailers include the Microsoft Store, GAME, Amazon, Currys, Dixons, John Lewis and others.

In the US, pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and S will start at 11am ET / 8am PT.

Stockist will include Amazon, Target, Walmart, Gamestop, Costco and more.

The Xbox Series X is priced at £449 in the UK and $499 in the US.

The Xbox Series S will cost you £249 in the UK, or $299 in the US.

The Series S is cheaper because it's an all-digital console with no disc tray – keeping costs down.

It's not clear how many consoles will be avaliable to pre-order.

Microsoft has said supplies are limited so you'll need to be quick.

Microsoft said: "Across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, you can pre-order online starting at 9AM CEST at Microsoft Store, Amazon, MediaMarkt, GameStop, FNAC, Elkjøp/Elgiganten, and other participating retailers. Retailers and availability may differ by country."

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when are they out and how much will they cost?

Microsoft has confirmed that the new Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling, the Series S, will launch on November 10.

The release date covers the UK, US, Australia and a bunch of other countries worldwide.

The disc-free Series S will cost £249/$299, while the Xbox Series X comes in at £449/$499.

So how does that compare to the new Xbox's biggest rival, the PlayStation 5?

Sony has revealed the PS5 release date falls on November 12, but not everywhere.

That date only stands for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

In the UK, you won’t be able to get it until November 19.

The PS5 proper will cost £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at £359/$399.

In other gaming news, Sony revealed the price and release date of its PlayStation 5.

PS5 listings have already begun to pop up on sites like eBay for as much as £250 above the asking price.

And, PS4 gamers can try the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War this weekend.
