1. Amazon

No surprises here. The world’s biggest retailer is home to a number of Xbox stockists and as a result, you can regularly find consoles available. With a near-endless selection of products, Amazon is the go-to for Xbox Series X games and gaming accessories. It also provides access to international sellers, particularly from the US.

2. Microsoft Store

When in doubt, go straight to the source. The Microsoft Store is the most likely place to find new Australian Xbox Seris X stock, with the site regularly updated to reflect new drops. As recently as June, Microsoft updated the allocation levels, producing a second wave of Xbox Series X consoles available to purchase online. Importantly, the brand won’t usually announce new drops, so you’ll have to vigilantly check-in yourself.

Telstra

Interestingly enough, Telstra’s Xbox All Access program lets existing Telstra customers purchase an Xbox Series X or Series S bundled with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for a monthly fee over a two-year period. The deal costs $46 per month to own an Xbox Series X and $33 a month to own an Xbox Series S. Importantly, the telco is officially sold out of Series X stock, but the Series S is available.

4. Harvey Norman

The Xbox Series X Harvey Norman connection is fairly strong. But despite the retailer plugging its gaming resource strongly, it hasn’t resulted in greater stock levels. The brand is currently out of stock, however, new drops are expected as early as September.

Ebay

5. eBay

Another obvious one, eBay is home to a number of resellers. While you might get lucky and score an unwanted console, it’s likely that these sales will be far above market price. If you aren’t concerned with cost, eBay is a great way to get your hands on the console ASAP.

Jb hifi

6. JB Hi-Fi

A favourite stockist for gamers, JB Hi-Fi has an influx of Xbox Seris X consoles, to begin with, but has quickly run out of allocation. According to XboxStockAlertsAU, it’s unlikely that there will be another stock shipment for JB until mid-August. That being said, the retailer does offer an extensive Xbox Series X pre-order option.

7. The Gamesmen

A smaller retailer that serves a niche market, The Gamesmen offers a vast array of consoles. While the flagship Seris X is not available, the retailer is currently hocking the Xbox Series S console for an affordable AUD$499.95.

Eb games

8. EB Games

Another obvious choice, EB Games is renowned for its sales and stock levels. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case with the new console. The retailer has already exhausted its allocation, mainly through pre-orders from the original Xbox Series X release date, however, that isn’t to say, you won’t stumble across a gem. Twitter user Blake Van Der Spek reportedly found a new drop of consoles at an EB Games in Cairns, so it’s worth following up.

Target

9. Target

A family favourite, Target is one to look out for in terms of Xbox stock in Australia. As one of the largest games retailers in the country, it’s likely that Microsoft will send a large number of consoles Target’s way, meaning it’s a fair time to get on board with a pre-order. Some Twitter users have already noted that the Xbox Series X is listed on the Target website, but is not yet clickable, it should only be a few weeks before that changes.  One to watch!

10. Big W

If you are looking to score the Xbox Seris X Big W is hocking, you’re out of luck. While it is listed on the company’s site, it’s unfortunately still unavailable until a new drop is unveiled. That being said, Big W is currently offering the Xbox Series S for AUD$429.

11. Kogan

Kogan has a little bit of everything, so it’s no surprise the brand has its fingers in the Xbox pie. Here you’ll find a wealth of Microsoft gaming accessories, however, the actual consoles are still on their way. As Kogan works with a number of facilitators, this could be a good avenue for an Xbox Series X pre-order in Australia.

13. OzGameShop

You might not have heard of it, but OzGameShop is a leader in entertainment products. The retailer has a huge range of quality tech, gadgets and accessories and while it may be out of stock now, it should have a new drop of Xbox Seris X consoles coming shortly. Definitely, one to check back in on.

Xbox Series X Pre-Order Australia

As outlined above, the current Xbox Seris X stock Australia has on hand is relatively thin. Many stockists have already exhausted their levels and as such, the best way to get your hands on the console is to pre-order. Xbox Series X pre-orders in Australia already quickly piling up, so while it may be a chore, it’s best to get in early and secure your gaming device. Otherwise, you might not be seeing your next-gen console until early next year.

Xbox Series X Release Date and Price

In Australia, the Xbox Series X release date was November 10, 2020. Arriving just in time for the end of year holidays, the next-gen console offered a major gifting option for families and avid gamers, and as such was a huge hit upon release. Better still, the Xbox Series X price was remarkably and somewhat unexpectedly affordable, at AUD$749. Microsoft also recently confirmed the lower-cost Xbox Series S which will sell for AUD$499.

Xbox Series X Restock Australia

As stated, a number of key retailers and stores where you would normally buy Xbox Series X stock have already run out of allocation. Like the PS5, this is mostly due to the continued semiconductor shortage which has affected industries ranging from video games to medical equipment. Additionally, the high-interest level for the product has seen the consoles fly off the shelves as soon as delivered.

The best way to ensure you get a console when the Australian Xbox Seris X restock hits is to stay up to date with the lists. Twitter user XboxStockAlertsAU has created an entire feed based on updated users with information on restocks and drops.
