On November 10, the day the Xbox Series was released, Amazon support sent out portions of pre-ordered new Microsoft consoles that their order would be delayed.
Based on the content of the letter, Amazon expects new Xbox Series shipments later in November and December. The service says that customers affected by the delay should receive the console by December 31st.
Earlier, Phil Spencer said that the next generation consoles – both from Microsoft and Sony – will be completely sold out at release, and it all depends on how quickly both companies can deliver new batches.

The launch of the consoles in 2020 is also complicated by the pandemic – because of it, as well as due to high demand, many orders will be delivered with a delay of several days or even weeks. Sony, meanwhile, decided to sell the first batch of PS5 online – without retail.
Microsoft did not go to such measures and its consoles can be found in stores, however, these units are likely to quickly run out.
