GameStop will have Xbox Series X restock in stores nationwide today (June 16). The retailer confirmed the event on the GameStop Twitter account over the weekend. Both the Xbox Series X and Series S will be in stock.
Console restocks have mostly occurred online. On a few occasions, gamers might have had to pick up their console in-store, but the actual purchasing of the console happened online. So this will be the first in-store-only Xbox Series X drop we've seen. It's a major announcement just as Prime Day deals start to ramp up.
Xbox Series X: $499 @ GameStop
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft's new flagship console. It features 12 teraflops of graphics power, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and Blu-ray drive.

Nevertheless, it's fair to say hardcore gamers will probably form a line at local GameStop stores extremely early, so you'll likely need to get down to your chosen store before opening.
Keep in mind that the last most GameStop restocks have offered bundles in place of standalone consoles. The bundles have includes games, an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 3-month membership, and a GameStop gift card. This may also be the case with this in-store restock.
