There are many concerns around where to buy Xbox Series X right now, after restocks have been slow to hit the shelves and fast to sell out. However, there’s hope as we have been seeing a few stock refreshes from major retailers in the days since Microsoft’s next-gen console first took to the market.
Not only that, but stores like GameStop in the US are announcing more chances to buy Xbox Series X in the coming weeks, with Black Friday being the next major date to hold in your calendar.
Until then, however, we’d keep searching all the retailers below if you’re still looking for where to buy Xbox Series X this weekend. You never know when more stock will become available and you’ll need to be in the right place at the right time to claim it.
We’re bringing you all the latest updates on where you can buy Xbox Series X right now, as well as our top tips for securing that console as soon as possible – so keep this page bookmarked for more over the next few days.
In the UK, we’ve seen Microsoft, Amazon and Very leading the charge on Xbox Series X stock, but we’d keep checking in with Argos and Currys as well.
The Xbox Series S has been selling at a similar rate to the fully fledged Xbox Series X, which means it’s just as difficult to get hold of this weekend. Still, keep checking those retailer links below for all the latest stock updates from your favorite retailers.

Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Amazon
We haven’t seen any Xbox Series X stock hitting Amazon’s lofty aisles so far, so stay tuned for more updates. When it does land, word will spread quickly so make sure you’re at the front of the line.
Xbox Series X: check for latest stock updates at Best Buy
Best Buy is the second retailer we’re yet to hear from in this wave of launch stock. The retailer remained quiet over the release period yesterday, with the console listed as ‘out of stock’. Keep checking for the latest stock updates to be one of the first to know when those consoles do become available.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: where should you check first?
Microsoft has been flashing in and out of stock over the last few hours, so we’d recommend checking in frequently if you’re having difficulty buying Xbox Series X. Not only that, but you can also grab a console using the All Access scheme at Microsoft – allowing you to buy Xbox Series X for $34.99 a month.
Best Buy is offering a discounted controller when you buy Xbox Series X, bringing the new gamepad’s price down to $44.99 from the usual $59.99. However, we’re yet to see the Xbox Series X live on the site.
When stock does arrive you’ll be able to grab a discounted Xbox controller, though you can also pick one up for the full price right now.
B&H Photo won’t be the first place many look when trying to buy Xbox Series X. While that does mean you’ve got a better chance at beating the crowds here, B&H Photo is likely to have less stock on the shelves compared to some of the bigger tech giants.
Newegg’s initial Xbox Series X pre-orders were limited, but we’re holding out hope that we’ll see more stock when other retailers open their doors. Microsoft has named the retailer as one carrying day-one stock, which means you’ll want to keep an eye out here as well.
Walmart’s pre-order stock was snapped up in seconds earlier this year, which means you’re going to have to fight if you’re looking to buy Xbox Series X here.
If you’re really struggling to buy Xbox Series X today, there is another option. StockX is a marketplace retailer that allows sellers to post an asking price, buyers to post a buying price and an immediate transaction when both requests match. Prices are, obviously, a little higher here, but unlike eBay StockX ships all products to its warehouse for inspection before sending them on to you. We’d recommend waiting this first wave of stock out a little longer, but if you’re desperate there’s plenty of stock making it a reliable option today.
Where to buy Xbox Series X in the UK
Over in the UK, we’ve seen a few more stock refreshes. We’ve seen the opportunity to buy Xbox Series S pop up a little more often than the fully fledged console, with Currys and Amazon bringing more stock to the table since release day.
However, we’d keep a close eye on Very as well – this retailer likes to reserve consoles for higher value orders – so you might have a better chance to buy Xbox Series X if you’re willing to pay for Game Pass or an extra controller on top of your order.

Xbox Series X: Check for latest stock updates at Amazon
Amazon just launched 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
Why keep your eye on Very for more chances to buy Xbox Series X? Well, Very often holds stock back for higher value bundles – which means you’re more likely to be able to buy a new Xbox if you’re willing to grab a Game Pass subscription or extra controller alongside it. That means this stock lasts a little longer than other flashes of stock in general, giving you more time to get to checkout.

Where to buy Xbox Series X: which UK retailers should you check first?
If you’re looking to buy Xbox Series X at launch, and have fast and free shipping you’ll want to head to Amazon. Not only are you likely to get the best delivery times (if you’re a Prime member that is), but we saw a good amount of stock holding on at Amazon over the pre-order window as well.
Amazon is also now stocking new Xbox controllers as well.
Microsoft launched its own Xbox Series X stock early , giving those with eagle eyes the opportunity to buy Xbox Series X ahead of launch day. While stock does remain out at the moment, we’d keep checking in as we were seeing units flashing in and out all the time. You can also save 20% on a second wireless controller when you buy Xbox Series X through Microsoft as well.
Very was one of the first retailers showing you where to buy Xbox Series X at launch. On Tuesday November 10, Very had a good supply of both stock and higher value bundles which lasted a few minutes. In the world of Xbox stock that’s a long time, so keep checking back for the next round.
Very is also now stocking new Xbox controllers as well.
Currys hasn’t made its move in terms of Xbox Series X yet, however we have seen the cheaper Xbox Series S grace the shelves before dropping out over launch day. That’s means we’d stay tuned here, as there’s likely to be some consoles in that warehouse waiting for shipping.
Argos may not have a landing page for those looking to buy Xbox Series X just yet, but it’s certainly one of the best places to head to once that stock does land. That’s because the highstreet retailer organises its stock by region, which means you’re competing against a significantly smaller pool of shoppers. Nevertheless, that does mean that stock will run out faster as well.
You’ll also find new Xbox controllers in stock right now.

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.
Just when that is, however, is a little tricky to plan. We’re likely to see more Xbox Series X stock hitting around Black Friday as retailers use the console launches to bring more shoppers to their sites over the biggest shopping weekend of the year.
If you’re still looking for where to buy Xbox Series X in a couple of weeks, then, we’d recommend circling November 27 on the calendar. After that, things might still be rough until the holidays are through and we expect things will settle down towards the beginning of 2021.
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, however Game is honouring pre-order collection.
