Some updates from our hunting tonight:

Newegg.com very very briefly had a listing for the Xbox Series S listed as "available". this was at about 12:05 AM EST on 11/10 and lasted for all of 60 seconds.

Walmart.com shows that the Xbox Series X|S will be available "online only starting @ 12:00 PM EST on 11/10.

We are monitoring Target.com,Amazon.com, and BestBuy.com who, as of the writing of this post, just show unavailable, though Bestbuy.com does have a countdown timer that expires @ 1:00 am EST for when orders should become available, with the order buttons grayed out showing "Coming soon".

Good luck getting yours!

Well, it is now after 11:00 PM MST (1:00 AM EST) and I have continued to strike out at bestbuy and the rest. BestBuy's timer expired at 11:00 PM MST, and promptly the site started to crash, yet amazingly the 'Coming soon' buttons on the listings still say "Coming Soon".

Amazing how Apple can deliver tens of millions of iPhones every year for launch day, yet Microsoft (and Sony) have had months to prepare for this, and I cant even fathom the idea of getting a new console in the first month, let alone the first day.
