Attention, Xbox fans: $ 500(along with $ 300 , his less powerful little brother) was officially released on Tuesday, November 10th. Gamers around the world can now buy the new console, which Microsoft advertises as “four times the processing power of the Xbox One.”
Unlike Sony, which held, Microsoft stores the shelves both online and in stores. But as you search the web and inventory stores, lower your expectations: They’re nowhere to be found and don’t seem to be improving: Microsoft is already saying that .
If you still want to try your luck, here is a list of the basics retailers selling Xbox Series X. Our advice is to look for the retail price of $ 500and avoid those expensive merchant packages (which include foreign controllers, accessories, and games).
Best Buy was the last retailer to step down in the run-up to September, but is now ready for your Xbox Series X purchase, as inventory allows.
Amazon sells the Xbox Series X and the cheaper Series S from this same product page.
Walmart is doing a solid job of noting the availability windows for the PS5 and Xbox in its Twitter feed. You may also want to visit the merchant’s Xbox landing page for the two new consoles.
GameStop advertises “a very limited number of Xbox Series X and S console packages to purchase,” but they are currently sold out.
This is the Target product page for the Xbox Series X.
Here you can buy Xbox Series X from Newegg when the dealer has inventory.
If you want to get the latest versions of the Xbox Series X, there’s probably nowhere better than Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X homepage. Here you will find the latest specifications, announced game titles, details about the new controller and more.
