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 this, 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.
