If you’re like millions of other Xbox gamers, you’ve tried one(or maybe even one ) since the console’s launch on November 10. However, demand far outstripped supply and sold out within minutes at every major retailer. There have been a few additional inventory drops in recent months, but in all cases, very few customers managed to get their hands on a unit. That’s partly because of one routinely beat the average consumer.
Twitter remains a source for many gamers to check for news, but even if the leads are credible, gamers rarely get more than a few minutes of warning and stock will sell out in minutes. Currently, there is no inventory anywhere, and we don’t expect this to change any time soon: Microsoft confirmed that in November. Even Twitter is currently on silent, and no significant stock declines are expected this week.
But we’ll keep an eye on Twitter and other news sources, and we’ll keep you updated on what retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Target are planning. 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 recoil in the pre-order days, 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 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.
