Xbox Series X supply for Black Friday weekend? Check stock on Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy and Target


That’s part of the story Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift selections provide expert advice, reviews and recommendations on the latest technology gifts for you and your family.

Earlier this month, Microsoft debuted at Xbox X series ($ 500) and his little brother, a Xbox S series ($ 300). But like the same elusive PS5, they are more or less impossible to obtain. This is unfortunate because the Xbox Series X is a huge beast. Connect it to your TV and it offers a smooth 4K game, almost full compatibility with your Xbox One game library, and allows you to pause and resume up to four games at once. But nonetheless Black Friday came and went, and the inventory landscape has been bleak so far, there may still be some opportunity to buy a console in the coming days.

While most retailers had no particular significance about when more pieces were expected to be sold, some moved forward. Walmart, for example, warned customers via Twitter exactly when to drop the new stock. The last inventory drop at Walmart was on Wednesday (Thanksgiving night) and we look forward to Walmart’s next announcement on Twitter.

Walmart isn’t the only retailer open about its stock. Antonline he does pretty much the same thing, with only fewer remarks. 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 is Antonline’s Thanksgiving Eve’s tweet about a drop. As you can see, you may want to follow the merchant to make your tweets useful:

GameStop has implemented a stock reduction on Xbox models November 25, but – as usual with GameStop – it was an expensive package. Still, it ran out within minutes.

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 supply may be tight 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 step back 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 PS5 and Xbox availability windows Twitter feed. You may also want to visit the retailer’s Xbox landing page for both new consoles.

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.

Are you desperate yet? 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.
