Amazon-faithful is gearing up for the next restock following a disastrous, scalper-filled shipment last month.
Here’s everything we know about the next restock coming to Amazon in 2022.
Amazon has no Xbox Series X consoles in stock from Microsoft at the time of writing.
Several other sellers have listed the Xbox Series X console on Amazon with a variety of perks and statuses. One listing reads “Renewed” while another offers an extra controller and sticker skin as a bundle. These may be a bit too steep for some fans, however, with payment plans above $50 every month for the next year.
Those willing to take the plunge and purchase from a seller outside either Amazon the brand or Microsoft on its storefront are welcome to do so at their own risk. Otherwise, they will have to wait for a restock.
There have been no new restocks of the Xbox Series X console on Amazon from Microsoft since the start of 2022 at the time of writing. However, this doesn’t mean the console is not available—it is, just not from Microsoft.
The retailer’s last shipment happened around the end of December. Unfortunately, according to user reports, this particular restock was overrun with scalpers and bots that left honest buyers in the dust. Amazon does tend to ship at least one restock per month, however, and, with the beginning of February looming, that date may be closer than one would think.
Amazon does not have a favored date or, really, a strict schedule regarding its restocks. Nor does it announce them when they happen. Therefore, it’s up to users to track the shipments and be aware of restocks through tracking accounts and/or their trusted news outlets.
The Xbox Series X typically costs $499.99 from Amazon, directly. However, with the current chip crisis making it difficult to manufacture stock and the supply/shipping line issues causing packages to be delayed, getting items to retailers has become a daunting task.
This has made the recent climate a proverbial playground for resellers and scalpers who are listing their consoles at almost double the price—around $800 at the cheapest.
