Local Xbox distributor Prima Interactive has warned about possible Xbox Series X and S delays in SA following unforeseen logistical challenges. By the sound of things, most retailers in the country have recieved their stock. However, in some rare cases, others may have not.
Prima Interactive claims that all stock has been shipped to stores already but worldwide embargoes provided a short time frame for the stock to move about the country. The company say that in the worst situation, customers may only get their Xbox Series X or S console the day after launch (11 November) due to retailers only receiving stock on launch day. In addition, they promise that all pre-orders will be met regardless of the delay.
Prima Interactive urges customers to reach out to their retailer or online store to stay up to date with the possible delay. Customers should first check with their store in which they pre-ordered the console from before going to collect the order. It is unclear which regions and stores are affected by this delay.
