Xbox Series X restock supplies have been notoriously low since the console launched last November, but don’t you worry: Our dedicated bargain-hunters have been busy scouring retailers and consulting with every Xbox stock tracker we can find to help you get hold of the machine. As such, we’ve got advice on the stores to check first (not to mention the ones you should prioritize) right here.
Xbox Series X restock updates: June 2 2021
What’s happening in the Xbox Series X restock world today? Well, with Best Buy being the latest to have dropped stock at the end of last week, they might hold on for now and go again on a Friday. But, equally, they have been known to offer stock unexpectedly – we know, it’s hardly ideal. With that in mind, generally, your best bet would be to watch the retailers listed below.
Although it’s been quiet so far, it is only Monday and this could change without warning – GameStop has a history of dropping deals; though this largely happens on Wednesdays.
As for Target and Walmart, we’d still probably say they are likely for a Thursday drop. Both stores usually get Xbox Series X restock deals on Thursday, so you can at least rest easy where they’re concerned.
And it’s always worth keeping an eye on Amazon no matter the time. It often drops an Xbox Series X restock when we least expect it, and the only way to stay ahead is to visit the site every now and then.
Xbox Series X ($499.99) | Check at Amazon
This is easily the most popular version of the new Xbox. Besides being more powerful thanks to superior graphics that offer super-sharp 4K resolutions, it comes with a disc drive that allows you to play disc-based games, DVDs, and Blu-rays. It has 1TB of storage space as well.
Xbox Series S ($299.99) | Check at Amazon
This streamlined take on the new Xbox is pretty tempting if you want to save some money along the way; it’s a lot cheaper than the Series X and still offers a ‘next-generation’ experience. However, be aware that it’s not as powerful and doesn’t include a disc drive. That means you’ll have to buy all your games digitally, which tends to be more expensive. What’s more, it only has 500GB of storage.
