Forget Xbox Series X restocks: Here’s when you should buy one


The Xbox Series X is here — if you can find one. However, if you’ve struck out in your attempts to find Microsoft’s next-gen console, I have some good news: You don’t really need one yet. Since the Xbox Series X plays the same games as the Xbox One (or a good gaming PC), you can safely wait until next year, and finish up your backlog in the meantime.

Still, if now isn’t the right time to buy an Xbox Series X, when will it be — if that time comes at all? While this question is relatively easy to answer for the PS5 (“when more exclusive games come out”), it’s harder to do so for the Xbox Series X. That’s because the Series X is simply one element in Microsoft’s larger gaming ecosystem, not necessarily its focal point. 

The truth is, when you buy an Xbox Series X is almost totally arbitrary, since you’ll have access to most of the same games on gaming systems you currently own — and soon, you won’t need a gaming system at all.
