It’s a fresh week for Xbox Series X/S hunters and we’ve got new intel about an upcoming restock wave from September 20-26.
September hasn’t been a great month for Xbox restocks so far. In fact, for the first time since the console’s launch back in November 2020, it’s probably harder to get hold of a Series X than a PS5 right now!
Recently, Microsoft put a lot of time and effort into its Limited Edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X devices.
But now that the Halo Xbox Series X pre-orders appear to be over, regular consoles aren’t appearing again all too quickly.
And with Xbox about to announce another major studio acquisition, there’s going to be more reason than ever to buy a Series X/S! After all, Bethesda games being exclusive to the platform now is a blow to PlayStation fans everywhere.
Find all of last week’s Xbox Series X/S restocks here!
And without further ado, here are all the Xbox Series X/S restock drops we know about from September 20-26.
All Xbox Series X/S Restocks September 20-26
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: September 23 (In-Store)
Recently, a leaked email revealed a massive Xbox Series X restock at Best Buy coming this week. It seems that the major retailer has been quiet for a reason, and this could be one of the biggest drops we’ve ever seen for the next-gen console.
It seems that Best Buy may well be adopting Target’s sales method, where buyers get to place an order online for curbside pick up. LordOfRestocks reports that Best Buy also appears to be attempting a new anti-scalper queue system that will prevent users from buying an Xbox if they’ve done so before.
Early reports indicate that some stores have over 100 Xbox Series X units to sell! If this proves correct, we expect that a lot of Xbox fans will be in for a good day later this week.
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Week after week, Microsoft continues to go live with Xbox Series X/S stock, making the store one of the most reliable places to buy your console. Of course, it makes sense for the Xbox manufacturer to have first dibs on stock to sell, but that’s not always the case.
For the last 2 weeks, Microsoft has been one of the few stores to actually have the Series X in stock. And we expect that more restocks are on the way.
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock
Antonline Xbox Series S Restock Date: September 23
Lately, Antonline has been putting new Xbox drops online almost every week. However, for the last 2 drops, the online retailer has been limited to Series S stock only.
We expect that another Xbox Series X restock will arrive this week. Bear in mind that if it does, you’ll need to pay a slightly higher price for the company’s console bundles.
We’ve seen evidence that Xbox bundles do prevent scalpers from snatching up the stock early, at least.
Excitingly, Antonline is also confirming that it will have the Limited Edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X in stock for pre-order too!
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: September 23 at 9am PT / 12pm ET
Although Walmart didn’t have an Xbox Series X/S restock last week, the store has consistently been dropping next-gen consoles. However, it’s worth noting that Walmart appears to be selling consoles that it doesn’t have yet.
If Walmart does drop stock again this week, buying it will effectively put you on a waiting list for a Series X/S. Expect to be waiting for a few weeks for your new purchase to ship.
Also bear in mind that while Walmart does drop stock regularly, its new Press & Hold button system is causing problems.
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: September 23
Although GameStop did assure us that another pre-order of the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X and Wireless Elite Controller Series 2 was on the way, it’s been quiet in recent weeks.
However, last week the retailer did have Xbox Series X consoles available, albeit only through the All Access deal. We hope that GameStop returns with another Xbox restock this coming week.
You’ll likely need to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro member if you want to take advantage of any upcoming drops here though. Signing up for the membership will give you not only early notice about restocks but also the ability to buy them before the general public.
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Recently, Target made big changes to its next-gen restocks, which will hopefully lead to more consoles being available at the major retailer.
Be sure to check your local stores regularly, as Target no longer drops in nationwide restocks like other retailers. Instead, the Target site will have Xbox Series X/S stock available as soon as it arrives in-store.
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Finally, we come to Amazon, the single most unpredictable of all the retailers. Recently, Amazon has been making edits to its Halo Infinite Xbox Series X page, with no sign of putting pre-orders live.
On top of that, Amazon recently had 2 separate PS5 restocks, without putting Xbox stock live at any point. We hope this will change in the very near future, but there’s no way to tell when it might happen.
That’s all we know about the Xbox Series X/S restock wave from September 20-26 for now! We’ll be sure to update this page with more details as they arrive.
Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass is getting 13 new games before the end of the month! Be sure to check them out for yourself.
And in case you missed it, Phil Spencer recently talked about the end of Xbox One support!
