Back on November 10, Microsoft introduced the Xbox X series ($ 500) and his little brother, a Xbox S series ($ 300). Equally impressive next PS5, has so far proved impossible to reach them. This is really bad because the Xbox Series X is basically a gaming PC that you connect to your TV, offers almost full compatibility with the Xbox One game library, smooth 4K gaming, and allows you to pause and resume up to four games at once. Even though the inventory has been gloomy so far, there are still some options for getting a console in the coming days.
While most retailers were not very transparent about when to expect units to sell, a couple stepped forward. Walmart, for example, has been constantly informing customers about when to drop the new stock via Twitter. We know the next time you buy the Xbox X and S series online will be here Walmart tonight, Nov. 25, 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET).
That’s not all. We know that Walmart will also have some access to the packed Nintendo Switch Black Friday package today at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET).
Walmart is not the only retailer that communicates availability. Antonline does pretty much the same thing, with less notice. The retailer tweets the availability at the time of the downturn and contacts customers and players directly. A spokesman for Antonline also said, “We have a strict, customer-by-customer policy and we do a lot of checks to get these into the hands of real players and not scalers.” Here’s the retailer’s latest drop from a drop. As you can see, you may want to follow the merchant to make your tweets useful:
Best Buy and GameStop are also teasing Xbox availability on Black Friday week, but without any particular details.
Unlike Sony, which is a online boot for PS5 only, Microsoft also stored the shelves online and in stores. But as you search for inventory online and in the mortar, ease your expectations: They’re nowhere to be found and don’t seem to be improving: Microsoft is saying this now The Xbox inventory may be scarce until April 2021.
If you still want to try your luck, here is a list of the major retailers who sell the Xbox Series X. Our advice is to find the retail price of $ 500, and avoid those expensive retail packages (which include foreign controllers, accessories, and games).
Best Buy was the last retailer to return in the September pre-order days, but is now ready to buy the Xbox Series X as the kit allows.
Amazon sells the Xbox Series X and the cheaper S-Series on the same product page.
Walmart does a serious job of noting the windows for PS5 and Xbox availability Twitter feed. You may also want to visit the retailer’s Xbox landing page for both new consoles. For clarity, Walmart says you will have the next opportunity to buy Xbox online Ma 18:00 PT.
It was GameStop advertised “a very limited number of Xbox Series X and S console packs are available for purchase,” but they are currently sold out.
This is Target’s product page for the Xbox Series X.
You can buy the Xbox Series X here in Newegg when the retailer has an inventory.
If you want to get the latest on the Xbox Series X, there’s probably nothing better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X home page. Here you will find the latest specifications, advertised game titles, details of the new controller and more.
Already desperate? Are you willing to pay a premium of hundreds of dollars above the list price? Listen, we wouldn’t do that, and we don’t recommend you do that either. But if you choose that path, StockX is a reputable eBay-style site that allows you to buy and sell new Xbox and PS5 models – as long as you’re willing to pay over $ 750.
