If you’re on the hunt for an Xbox Series X/S, make sure to check out the latest restock wave between October 25-31!
Last week was a disappointing time for next-gen console hunters, and we can only hope that stock levels are improving this time around.
Thankfully, we’ve got our eyes on a few upcoming drops as we close out October 2021!
It appears that recent shortages are down to retailers saving Xbox Series X stock for Black Friday 2021. On top of that, scalpers are still a major issue plaguing the limited Xbox drops.
Reselling is so much of a problem that scalpers are even driving up the price of the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge to insane numbers!
Recently, we found out why there’s a shortage of Xbox Series X/S consoles in October!
But there’s another chance to get your hands on an Xbox Series X/S restock between October 25-31.
Find all of last week’s Xbox Series X/S restocks here!
All Xbox Series X/S Restocks – October 25-31
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Recently, we saw Best Buy supposedly lock next-gen consoles behind a $200 membership fee. However, it’s worth noting that the company has since dropped PS5 stock with no membership requirement!
Now Best Buy TotalTech members are angry at the company for NOT holding stock behind a paywall.
Regardless, since Best Buy had new PS5 stock to offer last week, it could well go live with Xbox drops this time around. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like you’ll need to be a member to benefit either.
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: October 26-28 (Rumored)
It’s been another week of issues for Microsoft’s store, as it seems that scalpers may have the site down to a science. Recent drops have been snatched up in seconds, so we’re not particularly optimistic about this week’s restock.
However, Microsoft does have Xbox Series X consoles available week after week for those who are fast enough to the drop. Save the console in your cart and you’re often easily able to checkout in future restocks!
Recently, Microsoft’s store has also been triggering restock trackers everywhere, even when it’s not going live. Hopefully, the Xbox publisher will be able to get it together before the Christmas rush.
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
If you’re a GameStop fan, you’ll be glad to hear that we’re overdue a restock at the major retailer. We did recently get 3 days of Halo Xbox restocks at GameStop, but it’s been a while since the regular Series X was seen.
With that in mind, we expect the store to go live again soon. But after all 3 Halo restocks were plagued with issues, let’s hope that GameStop is able to do better next time.
If GameStop has a new drop this week, we’ll know about it in advance so check back soon for updates. And it’s worth signing up to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro member early if you’re hoping to take advantage of the upcoming restock!
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
After 2 weeks of no Xbox Series X/S restocks at Walmart, we can be almost certain that a drop is coming soon. After all, Walmart appears to sell consoles without having them in stock, so we know a shortage won’t stop the retailer.
However, it appears that Walmart is currently hoarding next-gen consoles in preparation for a major holiday.
And with this leaked Walmart Black Friday advertisement revealing Xbox Series X/S sales, perhaps the store is waiting to put a massive drop live after Thanksgiving.
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
If you’re not checking Antonline each week, you’re missing out on a guaranteed Xbox Series X/S restock! Every week, the online-only retailer has Xbox Series S consoles to offer, and last week it had a second drop for the Series X.
However, it’s worth noting that Antonline always sells next-gen consoles in bundle-form. Buying from the online store will mean you need to pay a little extra for the device, but bundles do help put off scalpers.
We also know that Antonline will have the Limited Edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X for pre-order, ahead of its November 15 release date. With that said, there’s only a limited number of weeks left for that drop to go live.
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: Varied
You might have already seen rumors but it’s now confirmed: Target is moving to in-store Xbox Series X/S restocks! What this means is that the retailer will no longer sell its Xbox stock in nationwide waves.
Instead, you can simply walk into any Target store and buy an Xbox console, provided they have stock.
We recommend checking first thing in the mornings when looking for a walk-in purchase!
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
To say that Amazon is well-overdue an Xbox Series X restock is an understatement. It’s been months since the last Xbox Series X drop at Amazon but the retailer did have Series S in-stock last week.
One thing to note is that Amazon is still yet to go live with its Limited Edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X pre-order. With only just over 2 weeks left until the console goes live, there’s sure to be a drop coming in our near future.
What’s interesting is that Amazon actually announced its most recent restock in advance. Here’s hoping that it does the same again this time around.
That’s everything we know about the Xbox Series X/S restock wave from October 25-31 for now. We’ll be sure to update this post with new information as it drops, so check back regularly for the latest details.
This week we finally got new details about the Xbox VR headset which may be further away than you’d think.
And on top of that, there’s some incredible new Saints Row gameplay featuring the wingsuit!
Finally, Phil Spencer recently talked about the end of Xbox One support!
