PS5 and Xbox Series X pre-orders: Here’s how England lockdown 2 affects things


Last night, the UK government announced that from Thursday, England would go back to a form of coronavirus lockdown only slightly more lenient than the version first introduced in March. Lockdown 2 will be in place in England (not Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, which have their own devolved rules) from 5 November to 2 December, and both the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be released during that time — so what happens to pre-orders?

First, the good news. In a TV address, Prime Minister Boris Johnson made it quite clear that this lockdown wouldn’t be quite as severe as the first, with no limits on outside activity this time around, for example. That means that you can expect things to function at least as well as the initial March-to-July lockdown when deliveries continued largely as normal, minus some understandable delays due to sudden unprecedented demand.
