Amazon is sending customers who pre-ordered the Xbox Series X a warning, letting them know that they may not receive the item on the day of release. It's not specified, but this is presumably an issue for the Xbox Series S as well. As you may know, Amazon, alongside other retailers, began taking pre-orders for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S earlier this month. And like the PS5, it's been very challenging to get a pre-order secured. Demand is high, and supply seems limited. Further, it looks like pre-ordering doesn't even guarantee you the console on day one.
Xbox gamers who have pre-ordered the console through Amazon have begun to receive emails from the retailer warning that they may not receive the item on launch day "due to high demand." And of course, if Amazon, with all of its shipping resources, is anticipating this problem, it's going to be a problem for other retailers as well.
