Xbox Series X: Microsoft confirms new cover design - this is what the covers look like now

Xbox Series X

Microsoft is updating the design of the game cases for Xbox Series X. After the US retailer Best Buy had already included the new cover motifs in its product database in the past few days, Microsoft has now confirmed the small optical makeover. The design of the new packaging looks slimmer and tidier. The Xbox logo that was previously attached to the top is moving from the case to the cover motif, which means that the graphic generally takes up more space on the case. In addition, the game platforms will from now on be printed on a white background.

According to Microsoft, the covers have been redesigned to bring the actual game artwork into the foreground. In addition, the changes are intended to better highlight the supported platforms, for example. Fans had recently criticized the crammed cover motifs and complained, among other things, of the many logos that Microsoft placed on the motifs. The new graphics now appear much flatter and tidier.

Xbox Series X Restock Update for GameStop, Antonline, Walmart, Sam's Club, Best Buy and More

Xbox Series X restocks are anticipated at certain retailers this week.

Unlike the incredibly elusive PS5, there are a handful of next-gen Xbox units available to purchase. That being said, the consoles are still very limited and often quite pricey as a result.

After Sunday's E3 showcase confirmed that games like Starfield and Redfall will be Microsoft exclusives and that the Game Pass service is getting several high-profile releases upon launch, many are expecting demand for Xbox hardware to go up.

To help you stand a chance of getting your hands on either an Xbox Series X or an Xbox Series S, here is the latest restock information.

GameStop Xbox Series X Restock

All next-gen Xbox consoles are out of stock at GameStop. Analysts predict that this could change at any point during the week, following reports the company has just replenished its nationwide inventories. The general consensus among trackers is that these new units will probably be added to the online store tomorrow (June 16).

In addition to this, there are also rumors of special events taking place next Tuesday and Wednesday at GameStop outlets, which will allegedly see both Nintendo and Xbox consoles added to their store shelves.

You can actually buy an Xbox Series X from Walmart at the time of writing, but it is going for an inflated cost of $928—and that is not even a bundle. Given that new stocks are expected at GameStop sometime this week, it might be worth waiting until you can get a better deal.

Elsewhere, the Xbox Series S console is in stock for $424.00.

You are currently unable to add an Xbox Series X to your Amazon basket in the U.S, but you can place an order for the less-expensive Xbox Series S.

While the latter is technically not in stock right now, a message on its product page indicates that the inventory will be updated shortly, and that you purchase it in advance.

Sam's Club had the Xbox Series X available yesterday, bundled in with a PDP ultra-slim charger and a RIG 400 Headset. This package has now sold out, although there are still a variety of Xbox Series S bundles up for grabs.

Antonline did add a new Xbox Series X bundle to their store page yesterday. Packaging the 1TB SDD console with two wireless controllers, an Xbox One copy of Forza Horizon 4, a digital code for Immortals Fenyx Rising and a 3-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, the item was going for $844.99.

This bundle has since sold out and there are no other Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S supplies at Antonline. The retailer has yet to indicate when its inventory will be refreshed, but it is worth following dedicated tracker accounts like @Wario64 on Twitter, as they usually get the news out first.
