The Xbox Series X is available at Walmart (Update: Sold out)

Update June 17th, 4:15PM ET: Walmart appears to have sold out of Series X consoles for today. I hope that you got one!

Microsoft’s next-gen console may have arrived, but getting your hands on an Xbox Series X isn’t exactly easy. Much like the PlayStation 5, Microsoft’s console remains in short supply due to increased demand and ongoing chip shortages, a problem that will likely extend into 2022. Thankfully, if you haven’t managed to secure either console, the Series X is available at Walmart right now for $499.99. (Walmart is releasing new waves of consoles every 10 minutes for now, so check again if you strike out.)

If you’re not sure how the Series X differs from the more affordable but weaker Series S console, there a few things to consider. First, unlike the Series S, the Series X features a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive, which allows it to play physical games and other media. The Series X also has a 1TB SSD instead of the 512GB SSD found on the Series S, and it renders games in native 4K at 60fps. The Series S targets it 1440p and features a slimmer build, but otherwise, the machines are essentially the same.

Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s flagship console, serving as its most powerful (and biggest) option that costs $499.99. While the Series S is aimed at smooth 1440p performance, the Series X is focused on fast 4K gameplay.

If you do manage to pick up either console, there are a few more accessories to consider if you want to make the most of your next-gen console. Although the highly anticipated Halo Infinite was pushed to an undisclosed date in the fall, popular Xbox One titles like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5, and Assassins Creed Valhalla have received graphical updates designed to leverage Microsoft’s next-gen hardware.
