The Xbox Series X is in high demand, and although it is not as elusive as the PS5, it continues to sell out immediately. Walmart and Best Buy restocked the Xbox consoles this week, but both retailers are now out of stock of the Xbox Series X.

If you missed the restocks this week, there is still hope—especially if you don't mind settling for the Xbox Series S. Keep on reading for the latest Xbox Series X restock updates and tips on how to get yourself a console.

Walmart Xbox Series X Restock

Walmart restocked the Xbox Series X online yesterday at 3 p.m., giving gamers a heads up an hour before, and the Xbox Series S was available online at Walmart as of 10 a.m. ET.

However, the Xbox Series X is unavailable, and when searching for the console, users were met with: "Oops! This item is unavailable or on backorder."

Microsoft Store

The Xbox Series X is currently unavailable at the Microsoft Store, though it has a tool to check availability at Target, Walmart, GameStop, and Best Buy, so it would be worth regularly checking the Microsoft website.

Otherwise, follow Xbox Series X alert accounts on Twitter and turn on notifications to be alerted when more stock is available.

Best Buy Xbox Series X Restock

Best Buy does not currently have any Xbox Series X consoles in stock. The retailer sold out on Tuesday following a restock that was announced on Tuesday. To be alerted when Best Buy releases more next-gen Xbox consoles, follow the retailer on Twitter.
