Xbox Series X restock updates: What’s available at Best Buy, Target, GameStop, Walmart and more

Although it’s been months since Microsoft released the new Xbox Series X and Series S, demand is still far outpacing supply. If you’re one of hapless many who are still waiting to get your hands on a new console, you know the drill by now: You log on precisely when there’s an inventory drop at a major retailer like Best Buy, GameStop, Target or Walmart. You click maniacally. You add the system to your cart — only to get the dreaded “sold out” message right before you complete your purchase. The whole routine is starting to feel a lot like the movie Groundhog Day.

But don’t fret! Luckily, there are ways to boost your chances of scoring an Xbox Series X. Check the store inventory links yourself, daily or even several times daily — don’t wait until you hear an update about an Xbox inventory drop. (We’ve got them all lined up below.) If you happen upon an available Xbox, it’s time to jump on it. Use as many web browsers and devices as you can. On a desktop, for example, you could open the store page in Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Then you could do likewise on your phone and tablet. It’s like with lottery tickets: The more you have, the better your chances of winning.

Twitter remains a useful resource for many gamers checking on restock news, but even when the leads are credible, there’s rarely more than a few minutes’ warning and inventory sells out within minutes. Even so, better times are ahead.

One tip: Seek out the $500 retail price and avoid those costly 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, get the Xbox Series S instead and save $200.

Currently, there’s no inventory to be had anywhere, but we’re keeping an eye on Twitter and other sources of news, and we’ll keep you up to date on what retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Target are planning. What follows is a list of the major retailers selling the Xbox Series X.
