If you’re still on the hunt for an Xbox Series X/s restock, we’ve got some retailers to watch between August 16-22.
So far, August has been a little disappointing when it comes to Xbox Series X/S restocks. Thankfully, we’ve got some news about another week of Xbox drops for you, to help you find that next-gen console.
In case you missed it, there’s a new Limited Edition Aqua Shift Xbox controller on the way. And this is more than just a simple gamepad – it needs to be seen to be believed!
What’s more, it’s been a big week for Halo fans, as every gun weapon & grenade in Halo Infinite is here! On top of that, we’ve got new images of the never-seen-before Halo Infinite Multiplayer maps for you too!
In the past, Microsoft has claimed that the Xbox Series X/S shortage is almost over! But with a lack of drops so far this month, that certainly doesn’t seem to be the truth.

All Xbox Series X/S Restocks August 16-22
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock
Walmart Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
If there’s one retailer guaranteed to drop Xbox Series X/S stock this week, it’s Walmart. Every week, Walmart appears to go live with more Xbox stock – but think twice before locking in your purchase.
It appears that Walmart is restocking Xbox and PS5 consoles without shipping past orders! And because of this, the store is selling consoles that it doesn’t have just yet.
Some buyers are only just getting their orders from June, and many units are still waiting to ship from back in July. However, we’re also seeing reports that Walmart is secretly restocking Xbox consoles in-store for select U.S. locations.
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock
Best Buy Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: August 17-19 (Rumored)
It’s been a staggering 4 weeks without a Best Buy Xbox Series X/S restock and we’re ready to see the retailer return to form. Before the last month though, Best Buy was one of our most regular restockers.
If the store has Xbox stock to sell, expect the drop between Tuesday and Thursday this week. We’ll update you with more details as they arrive.
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock
Antonline Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
This one is almost a sure thing, as Antonline seems to go live with new Xbox Series X/S stock with every passing week. However, the online store doesn’t like to keep things consistent when it comes to days of the week, so be sure to hit the notification bell on the company’s Twitter.
Last week, Antonline only had Series S stock once again, and it’s becoming a trend. However, the online retailer does occasionally have Series X units too, for those after the more powerful gaming device.
Thankfully, Antonline is at least one of the easiest retailers to buy from, provided you get there early. Plus, selling consoles exclusively in bundles is a great way to stop scalpers from grabbing the Xbox first.
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock
GameStop Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: August 17
Somehow, GameStop is killing it with PS5 restocks and struggling with Xbox Series X/S. It’s been some time since our last Xbox restock here, but we’re hoping that GameStop brings us a new drop as we head into the second half of August.
If GameStop gives us notice that it’s going live, we’d recommend signing up for the company’s PowerUp Rewards Pro membership. Doing so will always net you a better chance at the Xbox Series X/S restock.
UPDATE: GameStop will have stock today, August 17!
We’d also note that LordOfRestocks on Twitter confirms that Apple Pay is “GameStop’s weakness” and that using the payment method will certainly give you an advantage at checkout.
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock
Microsoft Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
In recent weeks, Microsoft has been as reliable with Xbox Series X/S drops as Antonline has! The publisher had a week off a couple of weeks back, but it’s been smooth sailing otherwise.
Last week, however, Microsoft only had Series S units on offer, so we hope the Xbox Series X returns this time around. After all, the best place to purchase your next-gen console is directly from the company that makes it!
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock
Target Xbox Series X/S Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
In case you hadn’t seen at this point, Target recently revealed that it’s making big changes to its Xbox Series X/S restocks.
Now, Xbox units will no longer get restock waves at Target. The consoles will just appear when they arrive in stock, proving that we’re truly coming to the end of the Xbox shortage.
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock
Amazon Xbox Series X/S Restock: This Week (Rumored)
It’s been quite some time since Amazon last went live with an Xbox restock – but the online retailer is seemingly impossible to predict.
Given that the last Xbox restock took place on Amazon Prime Day, we’re certain that another drop is coming soon. But if it is, we certainly don’t have a way of predicting a more precise date.
All we can do for now is wait and be quick on the mark if stock does go live at the world’s biggest online retailer.
That’s all we know about the Xbox Series X/S restocks from August 16-22 right now, but be sure to stay tuned for updated information as it arrives.
Excitingly, Xbox just confirmed that it’s working on more story-based games than ever! If you’re a fan of a strong narrative, it’s worth keeping your eyes on the platform’s upcoming line-up.
After all, Bethesda’s upcoming space RPG Starfield is an Xbox exclusive now.
And Phil Spencer is already teasing future Xbox acquisitions, meaning that more big exclusives could be coming soon.
