All US states – with the exception of Alaska – are confirmed to be carrying console units ready for collection.
It’s likely to be an incredibly busy time, with long queues expected in the more populated cities. So, if you’re after an Xbox Series X this morning, our best advice is to head out to a Best Buy location near you nicely and early to avoid any potential disappointment; no one wants to line up for over an hour just to leave empty-handed.

Xbox Series X restock: Buying advice
Aim for bundles: To avoid any upset, we generally recommend aiming for a bundle that could include some games or the best Xbox Series X accessories, like the best Xbox Series X headset. This is because the standalone console tends to be the first thing to go. Make sure that you’re getting the best deal you can, but only if the system is packed in with something you actually want.
Be prepared: We recommend having your debit or credit card ready to go as you near the front of the lines, especially as it’s likely to get chaotic once you’re through those doors; this goes double for those of you living in the capital cities of your respective states.
Be patient: Xbox Series X restocks are fairly common, happening usually at least once per week, so if you happen to miss out today, we would advise waiting for another trusted online retailer to have a drop rather than paying over the odds to a scalper or secondary source. Remember, an Xbox Series X costs $499, don’t pay more than you have to.
