Xbox Series X and Series S Are Back in Stock

Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X preorders began at 11 AM ET/8 AM PT in the US and sold out extremely fast. Amazon’s pages kept blinking in and out of existence, but if you were quick (and you follow @IGNDeals on Twitter), you might have grabbed one. After a few hiccups, Best Buy’s Xbox preorders came and stuck around for a while, but the page for the Xbox All-Access program is live on Best Buy (although it’s not yet available).Newegg, Target, Walmart and Sam’s Club have sold out of Xbox Series X preorders, most of which came and went in record time. The Series S, too, disappeared quickly. However, Amazon’s Xbox Series S page never went live with orders, so we expect those could be available any time.

GameStop has implemented a digital queue for preorders, and had a few on-hand at its physical locations. We’re updating this page as preorders come back online, but for more immediate updates, make sure to follow IGN Deals on Twitter.

The Xbox Series X has an estimated retail price of $499, while the Xbox Series S has an ERP of $299. Both consoles release November 10. UK users, click here to find out about your preorders.
