Where have we seen this before? Over the past 24 hours, Amazon has been sending emails to its Xbox Series X pre-order customers in the US, informing them that they might not receive their new console on launch day (November 10th), which is exactly what it's been telling PlayStation customers recently as well.
There are lots of reports of this all over the web, and here's how the email reads:
"We're contacting you about your order of Xbox Series X to let you know in advance that you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand. We are making every effort with the supplier to procure more inventory. We will provide additional updates once more information becomes available."
It's a near carbon-copy of the email that was sent to customers a week ago who had pre-ordered the PS5, so we're assuming this is more of a precautionary warning rather than a guarantee of any delays.
We suggest not making any rash decisions for now (we'll obviously keep an eye out for any updates), and it's worth noting that no customers outside of North America appear to have received this email as of yet.
