(Pocket-lint) - Pre-orders have opened for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S and pretty much all the pre-order supply of consoles sold out in the US, Canada UK and Australia. Expect more stock to go live in the coming days though. 

The Xbox Series X has been especially popular, but if you want a Series S, there are a few units still around. Stock keeps coming in and out at various retailers - even of the Series X.  


Xbox All Access was particularly popular, especially in the UK where retailers Game and Smyths both seemed to have major issues fulfilling orders.
