The Xbox Series X and S are both now available to pre-order - and gamers will need to act quickly if they’re to get their hands on a console before Christmas. 

The pair of consoles promise much-improved speed, performance and compatibility, as well as a library of exclusive games.

The Series X is the headline act of the release, with its sky-high specs, but the Series S is also turning the heads of gamers on a budget.
