If you’re like millions of other gamers, you’ve been anxiously awaiting an Xbox Series X since the product launch back on Nov. 10 (and probably for the year before that, ever since it was first announced). But enormous demand, anemic inventory, and focused attacks from bots and resellers have kept most people from getting one of the sought-after consoles at ordinary retail prices. There have been a few additional inventory drops in the weeks since, but in every case precious few customers managed to snag a unit. 

Twitter remains a resource for many gamers to check on restock news, but even when the leads are credible, gamers rarely get more than a few minutes’ warning and inventory sells out within minutes. Even so, better times are ahead — just not this week. 

Our advice is to seek out the $500 retail price and avoid those pricey retailer bundles (which include extraneous controllers, accessories and games). Even better: If you don’t have a 4K TV and don’t expect to get one anytime soon, try the Xbox Series S instead to save $200. 

Currently, there’s no inventory to be had anywhere, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon: Microsoft confirmed back in November that Xbox inventory could be tight through April 2021. But we’re keeping an eye on Twitter and other sources of news, and we’ll keep you up to date on what retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Target are planning. What follows is a list of the major retailers selling the Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X: Check inventory restock

Best Buy was the last retailer standing back in the preorder days, but now stands ready for your Xbox Series X purchase as inventory allows. 

Amazon is selling the Xbox Series X and the less expensive Series S from this same product page. 

GameStop had touted “very limited number of Xbox Series X and S console bundles for purchase” but those are currently sold out.

Walmart does a solid job of noting availability windows for PS5 and Xbox on its Twitter feedYou might also want to visit the retailer’s Xbox landing page for both new consoles. 

 

If you want to get the latest on the Xbox Series X, there’s probably nowhere better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X home page. Here you’ll find the latest specs, announced game titles, details on the new controller and more. 

This is Target’s product page for the Xbox Series X. 

This is where you can purchase the Xbox Series X at Newegg when the retailer has inventory. 

Are you already getting desperate? 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 you do it, either. But if you want to take that path, StockX is a reputable eBay-style site that will let you buy and sell new Xbox and PS5 models — as long as you’re willing to pay upwards of $650.
