The day Microsoft fans across the globe have been waiting for is finally here.

The Xbox Series X and S consoles have finally been released for sale – but stock is selling out incredibly fast.

Video game fans have been counting down the days, and have been quick to get their hands on the much-anticipated console.

If you’re lucky enough to find one in stock, Microsoft’s latest console will set you back either £449 for Series X, or £249 for the much smaller Series S console.

But unfortunately, retailers such as Game have completely sold out of both consoles.

The good news is, that if you’re a BT or EE customer, you could be in luck.

The console is available today for existing customers of BT Broadband or EE mobile.

Customers have a chance to purchase the consoles, plus a range of games and accessories, through their MyBT account.

EE customers will also have the option to buy a console, and add it to their price plan, split over 11 interest-free instalments.

This offer is of course subject to availability, so log into your account and check if the offer is available to you.

Alistair Wilson, Director of Devices and Partnerships, BT’s Consumer Division, said: “In the world of online gaming a win or loss can be measured in milliseconds, as a result, gamers stand to benefit from the ultra responsive, super-fast connectivity that BT fibre and EE’s 5G service gives them.

“By working with console manufacturers such as Microsoft, we’re helping support gamers so they can ensure they’re getting the very most from their gaming experience”.

BT announced the partnership with Microsoft today, for the launch of the next-gen consoles.

Full Fibre, the UK’s most reliable fibre technology, is the perfect accompaniment for gamers wanting the best online experience.
