If you’re like millions of other Xbox gamers, you’ve jealously tried one(or maybe even an Xbox Series S) since the console’s launch on November 10. However, demand far outstripped supply and sold out within minutes at every major store. There have been a few additional drops in inventory in the weeks since, but in all cases, few customers managed to get hold of a unit. That̵
Currently, there is nowhere to stock, despite a handful of stock declines at stores like Walmart and Best Buy in recent weeks. In the meantime, Twitter remains a source for many gamers to check for news, but it’s hard to say how credible the tweets are. For example, recently an unaffiliated Twitter account posted @YtNextGenGaming that new inventory would be dropping at retailers such as Best Buy, Costco, Target, Newegg and Walmart. We will contact you if and when we receive additional information regarding this or other restocking.
We’ll keep an eye on Twitter and other news sources and keep you updated on what retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Target are up to. Still, it’s best to keep our expectations under control: Microsoft confirmed that in November.
What follows is a list of the most important retailers selling the Xbox Series X. Our advice is to look for the retail price of $ 500 and avoid those expensive shopping bundles (which include external controllers, accessories, and games). Even better, if you don’t have a 4K TV and don’t expect to get one anytime soon, try theinstead to save $ 100.
Xbox Series X: Check the stock replenishment
Best Buy was the last retailer to withdraw in the pre-order days of September, but is now ready for your Xbox Series X purchase if stock permits.
Amazon sells the Xbox Series X and the cheaper Series S from the same product page.
GameStop had hailed “a very limited number of Xbox Series X and S console bundles for sale,” but they are currently out of print.
Walmart does a good job of listing availability windows for PS5 and Xbox on its Twitter feed. You may also want to visit the store’s Xbox landing page for both new consoles.
If you want to get the latest Xbox Series X news, there’s probably nowhere better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X homepage. Here you will find the latest specifications, announced game titles, details about the new controller and more.
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.
Are you getting desperate yet? Are you willing to pay a premium of hundreds of dollars over the list price? Listen, we wouldn’t do this and we don’t recommend that you do it. But if you want to go that path, StockX is a reputable eBay-style site that lets you buy and sell new Xbox and PS5 models – as long as you’re willing to shell out over $ 650.
