Finding Xbox One this Holiday Season

By Major Nelson
Since it launched, Xbox One has been flying off store shelves and is sold out at most major retailers. The Xbox team is working hard to meet consumer demand and we are delivering consoles to retailers as fast as possible this holiday season. If you’re hunting for one, you haven’t missed your opportunity. Here are some tips and tricks to finding Xbox One this holiday season – you don’t want to miss out.

  • Sign up for email newsletters and alerts from your favorite retailers and follow them on Twitter and Facebook for real-time updates.
  • Call your local retailers to find out which day of the week they receive shipments. You can check in each week to see if they have new stock.
  • Use retailers’ online stock checkers to find a store with Xbox One in stock near you, although we recommend calling to confirm.
  • Check with stores outside of densely populated areas – you may have more luck in smaller locations. 

You can also use tracking sites to help. Here are a couple I’ve found:
