November 10, 2020 was the launch day of the highly anticipated Xbox Series X and S consoles. While there have been a handful of social media posts showing off slight performance issues, it didn’t stop fans from running out and gobbling up as many of the systems as they could on day 1.
According to the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, had this to say. “Thank you for supporting the largest launch in Xbox history. In 24 hrs more new consoles sold, in more countries, than ever before…”
Thank you for supporting the largest launch in Xbox history. In 24 hrs more new consoles sold, in more countries, than ever before. We’re working with retail to resupply as quickly as possible. You continue to show us the connective power of play is more important than ever.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) November 12, 2020
Doing a quick online search we see that most of the bigger American retailers are completely sold out. Which means, If you are someone who can’t wait to get your hands on one of the biggest gadgets of the year you may have to head over to Ebay where the Series X is going for roughly $1,000.00 and the Series S for around $800.00.
