Xbox Series X restock supplies have been notoriously low since the console launched last November. However, we must stay vigilant and persevere at all times, as stock drops can occur increasingly randomly - but also have some patterns we can tap into still, potentially. Whatever happens, our dedicated bargain-hunters have been busy scouring retailers and consulting with every Xbox stock tracker we can find to help you get hold of the machine. As such, we've got advice on the stores to check first (not to mention the ones you should prioritize) right here.

Xbox Series X restock updates: June 9 2021

What's potentially happening on the Xbox Series X restock front this Friday? Do we see the week go out with a bang?

Well, maybe. The UK retailer Currys recently had Xbox Series X bundles, so we can only hope that that might be a good sign for other UK retailers, and worldwide retailers overall if there is stock-going-to-sellers floating about. 

For today in particular, though, in the US, we're looking firmly at Best Buy and Walmart, who both have previous form in dropping stock on Fridays (but also Thursday, admittedly - though this could mean unsuccessful stock or lucky relistings drop today, too). it might be worth keeping tabs on Target too, just in case they have anything going.

Firmly in the maybe/probably not pile are GameStop and AntOnline as they very rarely go on Fridays. As always, though, keeping their tabs open and trying when you can is no bad strategy.

And it's always worth keeping an eye on Amazon no matter the time. It often drops an Xbox Series X restock when we least expect it, and the only way to stay ahead is to visit the site every now and then.

With that in mind, generally, your best bet would be to watch these retailers but also keep abreast of all that are listed below.

And also don't forget about the upcoming Prime Day PS5 deals, Prime Day laptop deals, Prime Day TV deals, and Prime Day board game deals that are right around the corner.

Xbox Series X ($499.99) | Check at Amazon
This is easily the most popular version of the new Xbox. Besides being more powerful thanks to superior graphics that offer super-sharp 4K resolutions, it comes with a disc drive that allows you to play disc-based games, DVDs, and Blu-rays. It has 1TB of storage space as well.

Xbox Series S ($299.99) | Check at Amazon
This streamlined take on the new Xbox is pretty tempting if you want to save some money along the way; it's a lot cheaper than the Series X and still offers a 'next-generation' experience. However, be aware that it's not as powerful and doesn't include a disc drive. That means you'll have to buy all your games digitally, which tends to be more expensive. What's more, it only has 500GB of storage.
