If you're wondering how to buy an Xbox Series X, you're not alone. Xbox Series X stock has been tremendously difficult to find ever since initial orders went live. The console itself finally officially released on November 10 and there was a small amount of day one Xbox Series X stock available, but it was gone in a flash.

However, as expected, some retailers are drip-feeding stock to us as and when they get more in. Next up is the UK with Currys emailing customers to say Xbox Series X stock will be coming back from 1pm on November 24, with this listing page due to be updated once it's live. And Walmart is officially getting stock in later on November 25 at 9pm ET (including the Series S). Walmart has form of announcing the times it plans to have stock online recently and, to be fair, it has kept to these times. Be warned though, stock is still snapped up within minutes, so you should get online beforehand, get signed in, make sure you've got your correct account details added, and so on. 

The next chance to buy an Xbox Series X may well be announced in advance by other stores, but we think the smart move is to keep checking as often as you can. sure you can set up stock alerts but we've generally found by the time they land in our inboxes, it's already too late. We wish we were exaggerating.

Another quick update on Walmart. A recent ad-scan revealed it also expects to get Xbox Series X stock and PS5 stock in for their big sale starting November 25. One to watch if you aren't able to buy an Xbox Series X beforehand then. Otherwise, check out the retailer links below.

Our pro tip today for finding Xbox Series X stock is to open up the retailer tabs and just keep refreshing them. We will of course be updating this page as soon as we hear about any updates on when you'll be able to buy an Xbox Series X or when to next expect stock. Do keep an eye on those prices though as we've seen some third-party merchants on Amazon and other sites go past the usual asking price.

Picking up a spare controller or one of the best Xbox Series X headsets might be a smart move sooner rather than later just-in-case stock shortages on these items become an issue the closer we get to Christmas. 

Away from the direct links to retailers mentioned earlier, our price-finding tech is constantly scouring the internet for the latest prices, no matter where you are, for both the consoles. We'd certainly advise checking out the links above as you'll be able to see the most up-to-date picture of what's happening. We'd certainly avoid most eBay prices for now too as they're all a bit overpriced.
