Microsoft’s next-generation console has been out of stock since it was released in November. Here’s what we know about when retailers will drop new inventory. Dave Johnson Jan. 25, 2021 2:31 p.m. PT Best Buy Jump to details See at Best Buy Amazon Jump to details See at Amazon GameStop Jump to details See at GameStop Walmart Jump to details See at Walmart Microsoft Jump to details See at Microsoft Target Jump to details See at Target Newegg Jump to details See at Newegg StockX Jump to details See at StockX Show more (3 items) If you’re still frantically hitting “refresh” on your browser hoping to find an Xbox Series X , allow me to paraphrase a scene from the movie Aliens, in which Hicks admonishes Ripley to ease down on the throttle: It’s sold out — you’re just grinding metal. Microsoft debuted the Series X (along with its sibling the Xbox Series S) back on Nov. 10, and it sold out more or less instantly. A few retailers have had some inventory drops in the three months since the product launch, but it wasn’t remotely enough to satisfy demand, especially when ordinary users have had to compete with bots and resellers .

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 review: Game Pass is the secret weapon Xbox Series X vs. Xbox Series S: It’s all about 4K vs. 1440 The best Xbox Series X games you’ll need to play PS5 vs. Xbox Series X: The next-gen consoles we’re buying and why Xbox Series X: Check inventory restockBest Buy
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. See at Best Buy Amazon
Amazon is selling the Xbox Series X and the less expensive Series S from this same product page. See at Amazon GameStop
GameStop had touted “very limited number of Xbox Series X and S console bundles for purchase” but those are currently sold out. See at GameStop Walmart
Walmart does a solid job of noting availability windows for PS5 and Xbox on its Twitter feed. You might also want to visit the retailer’s Xbox landing page for both new consoles. See at Walmart Microsoft
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. See at Microsoft Target
This is Target’s product page for the Xbox Series X. See at Target Newegg
This is where you can purchase the Xbox Series X at Newegg when the retailer has inventory. See at Newegg StockX
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.
