    The Amazon delays are weird. The amount of tedious boring tat I buy off them on a daily basis (bin bags, dishawasher tablets, dog food, masks, colouring pencils, lightbulbs, panini maker just this past fortnight) and they always get it to me within 24 hours. The biggest event of the year and they've blown it. They will have been impacted more severely than anyone else by this second lockdown but the volumes of products they must ship out on a daily basis makes this seem all a bit odd, particularly when it seems like, in most cases, the things are already on their way. Would love to know how many they had to ship.


    Makes you wonder if they had a delay getting them in. 


    Or if they foresaw this happening, they should have dispatched them early to compensate.

    Did people who got the delay email from Amazon also get the "Good news, we'll be delivering your console on launch day!" email? 


    I didn't get the delay email but my order does say Thursday delivery and I did get the launch day email.

    Has anyone actually had an Amazon one get past the final delivery station stage? From here, Resetera and other forums it feels like every Xbox Series X (not S which seems unaffected) order they've taken has been delayed to Thursday.


    Try and make sense of this shit show.....








    For context this is to Scotland, Glasgow area.

    Had an email from Amazon - it’s delayed. Next Gen on hold for today, gutted!


    Funny thing is, mine dispatched last night so haven't received a delay email but it isn't coming till Thursday. 


    This is why I always order in store. I decided different on the XSX due to the whole Covid and potential lockdown situations.

    Yep. Still waiting here in Scotchland, although they've taken the money at least.


    Scotland here too, near Glasgow by any chance? Possibly not a coincidence. Although they haven't even charged my card.

    My email came in as 2136 but the status moved on the app hours ago.


    I've been checking everything, nothing has moved at all.

    My brother ordered via Amazon. Just helping him on their chat now as he's the same as you- no updates other than an email at the weekend saying he'd get it delivered on day of release.


    So far Amazon havent given me any confidence. Latest from the chat is its not out yet and wont be allocated until they get stock- despite what they said and others are seeing.  Bit of a shit show.


    Could you let me know the outcome? I haven't spoke to them yet, still holding out hope.

    Anyone else just popping to a shop tomorrow to collect their shiny new toy or is it just me that is old skool?  ^_^


    I always order in store, takes away the dread. I didn't with the XSX as I envisioned a lock down scenario in which I couldn't collect, boy that was a mistake.

    Lol at Amazon. For two months it’s said arriving 10th. Yesterday they send email about upgrade to release day delivery. Today I get this. 


    I know it doesn’t mean much and it’ll probably still come tomorrow but for fuck sake. Sort it out. 

    I’m not hugely fussed to be honest but it would be nice to know what’s going on. 


    Out of interest do you have Amazon Prime?
