Xbox Series X in Stock on Microsoft Website

by Jagosaurus Thu Jul 21, 2022 9:57 pm

While I've seen a ton of Series S, still yet to see a new Series X at retailers after trying (casual yet consistently) for 20 months. This looks to vary greatly by area but...

Finally snagged one from Microsoft's site just now 8) . Still in stock:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/store/b ... g21nnh47f6

You're able to buy it outright with a MS account. No HaaS financing or insider programs needed.

Reportedly Best Buy & Wal Mart also saw restocks today. Check your areas.

Hope this helps some RB members.

I would like one, but I’m more interested in getting a Mister together and running. I’ll make due with my One X for now.

Running Retro Arch within dev mode was actually a pretty big draw for me on XB Series platform.

I was looking at SBC or Nvidia Shield Pro TV options for a "consolized" emu station. This allows both...

I'll be plating Atari 7800 through 4K HDR new releases on a single machine 8)

No 2600? :(

Let me know if it’s tough setting up Retro Arch in dev mode. I’m potentially interested in doing that too.

I played the 2600 a bit growing up, but little to no nostalgia for it.

I really enjoy the 7800. I have a lot of nostalgia for the NES era. With the 7800, I always have that "wonder what if" vibe... if Atari had actually done a full US release in '84 as originally intended vs sitting in warehouses until '86.

Also just think the 7800 games are more NES & arcade-like vs the 2600. River Raid & Pitfall are fun though 8)

Still on my to-do list to get RA running on XBS-X! Been swamped.
