It's raining Xbox Series X restock today. Amazon and Walmart still have the console in stock. Amazon, for instance, has the Xbox Series X available for $499 via this link. This restock is for Prime members only, so you'll need to sign into your account to make the purchase. (It'll arrive as fast as next-day). 

This is the second restock we've seen from Amazon this week. On Wednesday, the retailer offered PS5 restock for Amazon Prime members.

Amazon isn't the only retailer with Xbox restock today. Walmart has the Xbox Series X in stock for $499. There is no Walmart Plus membership requirement to purchase the console.

Refurb Xbox Series X: $459 @ GameStop

GameStop has refurbished Xbox Series X consoles for $459. That's $40 off and the cheapest price we've seen for the XSX. 

Xbox Series X consoles have become somewhat easier to find these days. Bundles, in particular, tend to remain in stock for days after their release. Additionally, Microsoft has even started selling refurbished Xbox Series X consoles.

The Editor's Choice Xbox Series X was originally released on November 10, 2020. While it was impossible to find in stock the first year of its release, stock of the consoles appears to be more steady now. 

In our Xbox Series X review, we called the current flagship the Xbox to rule them all. It loads games in seconds rather than minutes and Microsoft's new Xbox Wireless Controller is a neat evolution of its predecessor. Small improvements like textured triggers and an improved D-pad take a familiar controller and simply make it better. 

We also recommend you dole out an extra $14.99 a month for access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It provides access to Xbox and PC games, as well as cloud streaming and save syncing between all three platforms. It's a fantastic deal and quite possibly the best deal in gaming
