If you are looking for one– and honestly, who doesn’t – I have some bad news for you. Despite debuting nearly two months ago, Microsoft’s next-gen console has been virtually impossible to find ever since. A few retailers have had some stock drops leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but that wasn̵
Currently there is no inventory to be found anywhere. There have been a handful of inventory declines in stores such as Walmart and Best Buy in recent weeks. Just before the holidays, Best Buy even announced some consoles for sale, which unsurprisingly sold out immediately. Walmart had its own stock drops two days in a row, both of which run out faster than it took me to type this. This means that all retailers are sold out for the time being.
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 planning. 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 seller to withdraw in the September pre-order days, but is now ready for your Xbox Series X purchase, stock permitting.
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.
