Even though the Xbox Series X stock situation has improved greatly as we head into 2022, but consoles are still not readily available in stores at a moment's notice. The good news, though, is that Microsoft's latest Xbox isn't selling out in a matter of seconds so your chances of getting one when there is a restock are much higher. To get you in the best position possible, we're here to ensure you're kept up to date with where to buy the Xbox Series X.

Latest: The Xbox Series X is currently unavailable to buy in the US and the UK - we're waiting for the latest batch of consoles to reach retailers. Last week the console was available to buy at Walmart. When we hear of any news on future restocks for the Xbox Series X console in 2022 we'll be back to update this page.

If you're getting particularly desperate to buy Xbox Series X, it can be tempting to head to a reseller site. You will be able to get your hands on a console at some point, and even though restocks are selling fast it is still possible to scoop up the new console. That's why we recommend sticking to retailers you know and trust. Check-in during this year's Boxing Day sales to see if any retailers are holding off for that event.

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 the new 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 so you're at the mercy of online retailers for now.
