The Xbox Series X little brother can be yours for $ 300 – if you can find it in stock
The Xbox Series S was released back on November 10, but you would hardly know from the major retailers’ product pages and store shelves This is the $ 300 sibling of the $ 500 Xbox Series X: it plays the same games , but is limited to 1440p (versus 4K) resolution, doesn’t have an optical drive, and only has half the space (500GB versus 1TB) – but this can be expanded with add-on drives, and Microsoft loads automatically less extensive textures to better optimize storage space.If you don’t have a 4K TV, this is the smart choice as it is affordable and doesn’t write many checks that your TV can’t cash
But the S Series sold out quickly on the pre-order day in September, and most of us had to wait until launch day, November 10, to claim a console. Then, if you didn’t get one, you must ask: How will there actually be a lot of inventory this week? That’s hard to say as Microsoft said little about how many units it will have for sale
So much is true: while Sony’s PS5 launch was only online, both versions of the Xbox were initially available both online and in-store The S Series sold out quickly and we expect limited quantities for the rest of 2020
While most retailers have not been very clear (or not at all) telling customers when they expect units to be on sale, some stores have been more open to Walmart, for example, has informed customers exactly when new inventory will be deleted via Twitter We know that your next chance to buy an Xbox Series S or Series X tonight, November, at Walmart will be 25 to 6 pm PT (9 Sm ET) The sale is only online
That’s not all. We also know that Walmart will have some availability for the sold out Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle today at 4 p.m. PT (7 Sm ET)
Walmart isn’t the only retailer to use Twitter Antonline is doing the same and is only attracting less attention The retailer tweets availability at the time of the drop and contacts customers and players directly A representative from Antonline also said: “We have a strict policy on a customer and we do a lot of checks to get that into the hands of real gamers, not scalpers.” Here is the retailer’s most recent tweet about a drop. As you can see, you probably want the retailer so that the tweets are useful:
We are very grateful for our family #antfarm today Here is another drop for the #XboxSeriesX ☺️https: // tco / oCWdXxl0rm picTwittercom / jmuCK1lbRd
