Where to buy Xbox Series X: all the latest restock updates

Click here to refresh the page and get the very latest updates on where to buy Xbox Series X as soon as stock information comes in. 

Xbox Series X restocks are still quiet this week, with retailers across the US and UK running short in their supplies of the next generation console. Many are not only wondering where to buy Xbox Series X, but how long this lull in stock will last. With supply issues leading all the way back to the manufacturing stage, recent admissions from Microsoft that Xbox Series X stock shortages could last well into the summer may well ring true. 

There is light at the end of the tunnel, though. With a handful of Xbox Series X restocks hitting Amazon UK over the last week, it seems there are consoles on the move. It's just a case of making sure you're at the front of the line when those chances to buy are finally presented. 

They have to let us buy Xbox Series X at some point, and as soon as that stock does drop we'll be bringing you word right here. Bookmark this page, then, and keep checking in because more consoles could be on their way at any moment.

Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Amazon
Amazon had Xbox Series X stock available over the last few weeks, but it sold out within about 5 minutes. That means you'll want to keep the hunt going, but check back here regularly as things are going to move quickly when those consoles return.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: where should you check first?

Amazon
Amazon hasn't had many Xbox Series X restocks over the last few weeks, but we'd keep checking for stock because word is likely to travel fast once more units do hit these lofty shelves and you'll have to be at the front of the line to grab one.

Microsoft
Microsoft held on pretty well in the first wave of stock, lasting longer than other retailers with quick refreshes. We saw more stock landing at the start of the Black Friday week here, but since then there hasn't been much movement. Keep checking in though, because you can also grab discounted controllers here as well.

Best Buy
Best Buy offered the chance to buy Xbox Series X on November 22, and again on November 28, but stock is still pretty hard to come by. We may well see more units hitting the shelves soon, however, so keep your eyes peeled as Best Buy is throwing in a discounted controller with these orders as well.

Walmart
Walmart has been restocking Xbox Series X far more frequently than other retailers - but that stock is being snapped up incredibly quickly. The next restock is scheduled for 'Black Friday', so it's anyone's guess when you'll be able to buy Xbox Series X and we'd keep that refresh button hot.

Xbox Series X: Check for latest stock updates at Amazon
Amazon had more Xbox Series X stock in the UK, which then ran out in five minutes. You'll need to move quickly if more becomes available then, so keep checking that link for the latest updates.

Xbox Series X: Check for latest stock updates at Very
Very had another quick flash of stock, with the chance to buy Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S briefly glimpsing into view. That's now all gone, however, but keep an eye here as things are obviously moving in the right direction.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: which UK retailers should you check first?

Amazon
Amazon hasn't seen too many Xbox Series X restocks over the last few weeks, but we'd still keep a close eye over the next few days. Any stock that does appear here is going to move quickly, so you'll need to be fast to catch it.

Microsoft
Microsoft was offering the chance to buy Xbox Series X at the start of the Black Friday week, but we haven't seen much of a return since then. It's worth noting, however, that the Xbox Series S managed to stay in stock a lot longer here so it's worth keeping an eye on if you're after the cheaper console.

Very
Very has offered another chance to buy Xbox Series X in the last few weeks, with higher value bundles also available. That means stock of the individual console tends to sell out here as fast as you would expect, but if you're happy to pay for extra controllers or Game Pass subscriptions you might have an easier time picking up the console here.

Currys
Currys has fallen quiet since offering the Xbox Series X on the shelves last month. Keep checking in though because more units could be on their way at any time.

When will you be able to buy Xbox Series X?

Of course, these stock issues can only last so long - you'll be able to buy Xbox Series X for a non-inflated scalper price relatively easily at some point in the future. We don't know when these stock issues will ease, but expect regular Xbox Series X restocks over the next few weeks.

How to buy Xbox Series X: our top tips

1. Find your retailers
The lists above offer up all the latest updates on which retailers are likely to bring more chances to buy Xbox Series X over the next few days. Prioritise larger retailers as they're the most likely to offer up more Xbox Series X stock and are also already set up for fast shipping as well. 

2. Prepare your wallet
We're sure you've already prepared to spend some cash, but having your details at the ready will save you valuable time when that first wave of stock hits. Better yet, if you're comfortable saving your payment details or using PayPal you're in for a much less stressful experience.

3. Sign in
Many retailers will need an email address alongside your shipping information to allow you to checkout, and this is causing many shoppers looking to buy Xbox Series X to lose valuable seconds. Be sure to sign into these retailers if you already have an account or create one if not. Of course, if you're not comfortable signing in or creating an account, keep your email address and shipping information handy for a quick copy and paste when you're against the clock.

4. Find the product page
We'll be linking you straight to the product page of either the Xbox Series X or the Xbox Series S when stock does arrive. However, if you're going it alone you'll want to make sure you're on the correct product page ahead of time to avoid spending those crucial seconds searching for the console itself on a retailer website. Plus, if demand skyrockets, sites run the risk of crashing which can be particularly frustrating if you're still trying to navigate the virtual aisles. 

5. Don't give up
If all is going to plan but stock runs out at the final hurdle don't give up. We've seen retailers like Best Buy replenishing their stock every few minutes when they go live with a new batch, which means quick refreshes can get you back in the game in seconds.

Can you buy Xbox Series X in store?

In the US, in-store stock varies by region, but we are seeing some success with Target. Be sure to check in-store stock levels early in the morning and head down straight away if you spot consoles available. Stores are allocating what little stock they have on a first come first served basis, but it is possible to buy Xbox Series X in person. 

If you're in the UK, things are a little different. Obviously the current lockdown has scuppered many plans to buy Xbox Series X in store.
