Theis the result of several years of development and engineering, and sometimes it seems like it takes so long to actually buy one again. It debuted on November 10 last year and has been largely out of stock since then. There are two next-generation Microsoft consoles to choose from: the $ 500 Xbox Series X, the console of choice if you want 4K video at 120Hz, as well as the , priced at a much more reasonable $ 300 for gamers without a 4K television. Regardless of which one you prefer, regular restocking sells out quickly.
Check here regularly for the latest restocking updates. You can also track Xbox availability yourself; Twitter is a popular (if not entirely reliable) source of stock replenishment rumors. But here at CNET, we occasionally get word directly from retailers and other informers about upcoming stock replenishments, and when we do, we’ll immediately distribute it.
This is true: it will likely take months for normal stock levels to show up in stores, so getting your own Xbox for the summer will likely be challenging.
Here’s a list of all the major retailers (and high-profile resellers) where you can track inventory and availability.
Possibilities for replenishing Xbox Series X
You can find both the Xbox Series X and the cheaper Series S on the same Amazon product page.
This is the product page for the Xbox series on GameStop.
Here you can find the Xbox Series X at Best Buy (when the stock goes down).
You may also want to visit the store’s Xbox landing page to see both new consoles, but here’s the product page for the Xbox Series X.
If you want the latest Xbox Series X news, there’s probably nowhere better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X homepage.
This is Target’s product page for the Xbox Series X.
Here you can buy the Xbox Series X from Newegg if the retailer has stock.
We highly recommend that you wait for stock to appear at regular retailers so that you can purchase an Xbox Series X at its regular retail price. But if you just can’t wait, keep in mind that the average price of the Xbox Series X on eBay is about $ 800.
Are you willing to pay a premium of hundreds of dollars over the list price? We don’t recommend doing it, but StockX is a reputable eBay-style site that lets you buy a new Xbox – as long as you’re willing to pay $ 650 or more.
