It's Cyber Monday, and that means major markdowns on games and other tech across many of the internet's most popular retailers. Unfortunately, there won't be any discounts on the recently released Xbox Series X but many stores have refreshed their next-gen consoles stock just in time for the upcoming holiday shopping spree.
Much like every past console launch, Microsoft's latest gaming system has been in short supply. Microsoft executive Liz Hamren acknowledged that "not everyone was able to get an Xbox Series X immediately," in a November 13 statement. However, she reassured customers that the company was "working tirelessly" to get more out the door as soon as possible.
While Microsoft and many retailers haven't confirmed that there will be a Cyber Monday restock of the Series X, Hamren encouraged shoppers to regularly visit retailers' websites to check for availability. Store traditionally restock hot-button items during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so there's hope that the console will go on sale sometime on Monday.
Anyone trying to lock down a Series X for themselves or as a gift should look to these specific retailers during Cyber Monday. But act fast and refresh often because all next-gen consoles are flying off virtual shelves.
