Ahead of the Xbox Series X launch next month, Australia's largest mobile network Telstra is currently showing off prototype models of Microsoft's next-generation console in-store.

Being prototype models, they're not up and running - but if you are curious to see this towering beast before its official arrival and happen to live in the land down under, it might be worth heading to your nearest store. Here's a look at one out in the wild and below it is an Xbox One S (thanks, Kotaku Australia).

Telstra is currently offering All-Access plans for both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. This contract gives you a 24-month contract and includes a console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Video game retailers and telcos aren't the only ones who already have their hands on Xbox Series X units. A number of media outlets have had Microsoft's next-gen system for some time now, and even influencers have been receiving them before the big release.

Would you be willing to take a trip to your nearest retailer or mobile phone supplier to see the Xbox Series X ahead of launch? Have you already seen one in your own location? Tell us down below.
