Looking for where to buy an Xbox One console right now? Between gaming demand shooting through the roof and inventories beginning to wind down for the next generation, retailers are struggling to hold onto their stock of One S and One X consoles right now.

We're running through all the first retailers you should be checking when you're searching for where to buy an Xbox One, as well as keeping you updated on their latest stock levels.
With Xbox Series X firmly on its way, these older consoles have been subject to considerable price drops over the last few months. The surge in demand may have changed that, however, as more players have the chance to check out Microsoft's library.

Where to buy an Xbox One in the US: all the retailers with stock
Newegg is the source of the super cheap Xbox One S All Digital Edition deal above, but if you're looking for a disk tray you'll find plenty of great prices on Xbox One X consoles here as well. Regular Xbox One S prices aren't competing well with the 4K version here, so you're better off going for the X model.
Shopping directly from Microsoft means you're picking up the latest bundle deals straight from their source. You'll find plenty of stock on the latest discounted Xbox One X bundles and Microsoft is the only place you can get stuck in with the unique Xbox Design Lab. You're saving $100 on your new console, which means plenty of room to pick up a discounted custom controller as well.
You'll find a smaller selection of Xbox One X bundles available at Kohl's, but plenty of Xbox One S models on offer. They are currently sat at the same price as the 4K console, however, so if there's cheaper stock elsewhere and you really don't want to pick up the beefed-up version, you might want to shop around. Stock on these consoles and plenty of cheap accessories is plentiful, though.

Very has a particularly limited collection of Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundle deals in stock right now, and even these are selling fast. Nevertheless, Very has also been quick to update its stock over the last few weeks, so it's always worth checking in every now and then for the latest offers.

So why buy an Xbox One now? Well you're still picking up an excellent machine, and if you choose the Xbox One X, one capable of 4K gaming for a brilliant price.
