Xbox Series X and Series S will open for pre-orders at 8am UK time on September 22.
Announced by Xbox UK’s marketing lead on Twitter, the timing is currently only confirmed for the UK timezone. However, that time maps to midnight, September 22 in Pacific time.
Given Xbox headquarters are in the Pacific timezone, midnight feels like a likely time for pre-orders to open in the US.
Pre-orders for Xbox Series X | S go live on the 22nd September at 8AM from the following UK retailers:

The September 22 Xbox preorder date was announced last week, when we learned that Xbox Series X will cost $499 / £449, Xbox Series S will cost $299 / £249, and both consoles will see release on November 10.
Both consoles will join the Xbox All Access program (a subscription service that gets you a console and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership), with Series X coming in at $34.99 USD / £28.99 a month, and Series S at $24.99 USD / £20.99.

We’ll likely learn about PS5 preorder plans tomorrow, September 16 at the PS5 showcase, which will “feature updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.”
