Buy Xbox Series X: Xbox boss comments on the tense delivery situation

Buy Xbox Series X

Even almost a year after the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, interested gamers have to be very patient in order to be able to buy one of the consoles - the dealers' stocks are still out of stock in the blink of an eye. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that the situation will not change anytime soon. The manager told The Wrap that the delivery situation should not improve significantly in the coming months. One of the reasons for the slow production is a worldwide shortage of semiconductors and chips.

However, the problem cannot be blamed on the current chip shortage alone, says Spencer. He continued, "When I think about what it means to get the parts that a console needs today and then bring them to the high demand markets, there are some hurdles to the process." Spencer adds that this state of affairs could probably continue for several months, "definitely until the end of the calendar year and into the next year as well". The biggest disappointment about it is that it disappoints the fans. "Gamers want the new generation of consoles - they are good consoles, gamers want the new functions," the Xbox boss said.

Xbox: Edge browser now supports Discord, keyboards and more

A major update for the Edge browser on Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One is on the way. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1380568,1380466,1380486,1380282'; Microsoft is working hard to bring new consoles to the market. However, it is a challenge that the company will be busy with for a while. The demand for the Xbox Series X / S (buy now € 549.00) and PlayStation 5 is huge: The allotments available to dealers are always sold out after a few minutes. After all: In the past few weeks, the shops had the consoles in their range more regularly. The market seems to be far from the fact that PS5 or Xbox Series X can be easily ordered anywhere or bought in a branch.

There have been a few Xbox Series X restocks over the past few days, but it seems that supply levels are now dwindling once again.

Here is the latest restock information for every major U.S. retailer.

Amazon Xbox Series X Restock

You are currently unable to get an Xbox Series X from Amazon unless you are willing to buy from a third-party reseller.

There are multiple opportunities for purchasing second-hand units on the marketplace, but these are invariably overpriced. For instance, there is a used console listed right now for $899 and it does not come with any accessories or games.

There is no word yet on when the next official Amazon restock will be taking place. Dedicated console trackers like @GYXdeals, @XboxStockAlerts and @mattswider on Twitter will notify their followers as soon as more information becomes available.

Shortly after we published our last update, GameStop released a new Xbox Series X bundle.

The next-gen console shipped with an extra wireless controller, a digital gift card, a 3-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and a copy of Madden NFL 22.

The entire package cost $694.46 and was initially reserved for those on GameStop's 'Power Up Pro' loyalty scheme. The sale eventually opened up for non-members as well.

Best Buy Xbox Series X Restock

After organizing a series of in-store restocks at 'flagship' locations on September 23, Best Buy was then accepting online orders the following day.

From 11 a.m. ET, you were able to buy an Xbox Series X on the Best Buy website, although these units were not for delivery. Instead, you had to travel to a nearby store to collect your purchase.

There are no longer any Xbox Series X units available at Best Buy.

Walmart Xbox Series X Restock

Walmart restocked on the Xbox Series X late in the evening of Thursday, September 23.

Given that the retailer typically leaves a couple of weeks between its drops, it is unlikely that there will be another one until October 7 at the earliest.

Generally speaking, Walmart's restocks occur every other Thursday at 3 p.m. ET but there are occasional outliers that diverge from this pattern.

On September 24, Microsoft's official storefront replenished its Xbox Series X inventory.

This was the third consecutive Thursday that the outlet managed to coordinate one of these restocks, indicating that its drops could be more regular from now on.

Speaking of which, the last three Microsoft Store restocks have all occurred sometime between 6 p.m. ET and 8 p.m. ET. As such, it might be worth keeping an eye out for another one taking place this evening (Thursday, September 30).

There have been a few next-gen consoles available from Newegg this week, but today's Shuffle consists solely of PC components instead.

These daily lottery draws are often one of the best ways to get Xbox Series X units in the U.S., as they are much harder for scalper bots to exploit.

While you wait for the contents of the next Shuffle to be announced, you can always try browsing the rest of Newegg's website to see if there are any second-hand consoles for sale.

It is worth bearing in mind that, if you do manage to find a used Xbox here, it will be traded by a third-party scalper for an inflated price.

Target is no longer coordinating nationwide drops for the Xbox Series X and is instead allowing individual locations to organize their own restocks.

It is therefore quite difficult to forecast when the merchant will next have the console available, as it will be different for each region.

You can check the supplies levels of stores nearby to you on the Target website, where there is an option for searching via ZIP code. It is generally best to do this first thing in the morning, as that is when most outlets will update their inventories.

Antonline released a new Xbox Series X bundle on Friday, September 24 but this stock was rapidly depleted.

While the Xbox Series X is now unavailable, you still have the opportunity to pick up one of the less-powerful Series S models from the retailer. These cheaper units are packaged with spare controllers (in a variety of different color options) and Nyko Core wired headsets.

If you do decide to shell out for one of these Antonline bundles, it will cost you $364.99.

You can no longer buy either version of Microsoft's next-gen hardware from Sam's Club.

The Xbox Series S was available in a bundle when we published our last update, but even those supplies have now been exhausted.

Neither the Xbox Series X nor the cheaper Series S model are available from Costco at the time of writing. If there is a surprise restock in the future, the likes of @GYXdeals, @XboxStockAlerts and @mattswider will update their Twitter followers.
