So, I’m in the market for an Xbox Series X, but I refuse to pay scalpers for one. What would be the best way to acquire one of these consoles? I did have Twitter alerts on for PS5 stock updates, but I don’t think that included XSX too.

Sadly, best thing right now is to have some patience.

The same twitter folks who track PS5 drops also track the XsX. It’s definitely easier to get now.

Get in to insider program. Or wait like me.

There should be some drops in August, September, and holidays. Look for them during these time.

I am waiting mid 2022. I see no reason to get both systems now. Nothing big to play. Only side dishes.

Follow Matt Swider on Twitter, he's been great in giving people heads up on XSX/PS5/GPU restocks.

The 2nd method is how I got my XSX a couple of weeks ago. It gonged notifying me that Microsoft had it in stock on their site. You have to be really quick though.

Dunno, I paid $720 for mine through StockX about 3 months ago, and just wanted to tell people that the website is legitimate if they're willing to pay over retail.

You pay StockX, the shipper ships to StockX, they verify it, and release both the money and product.

Follow stock alerts in Twitter with the notifications. Wario64 for example. Hope for the best. UK just got a XSX shipment so maybe some are coming near you soon too. Join discords with stock alerts and all that.
 
set up a few deal/stock checkers and you’ll have one pretty quick, i use hotukdeals in the uk and lots of members post back in stock alerts. or buy a series s for the time being, they are in stock at lots of stores here too.

before anyone thinks i’m trolling about series S.

Scalpers are the scum of the earth, The problem with having more people on the internet. I don't remember last gen being this bad.
