The Xbox Series S Is Actually In Stock Right Now, Get Your Order In ASAP
Luckily, Walmart currently has sufficient stock of the Xbox Series S this morning. We say "sufficient" because the console has been available to purchase online for at least the past two hours and has shown no signs of going out of stock. The console is of course priced at $299 with free shipping to your home. Unfortunately, the console will arrive after Christmas if you order today (it's showing a Saturday, December 26th delivery for us).
The Xbox Series S is the lesser member of the new Xbox family, and comes with a less performant Zen 2-based Ryzen processor and RDNA 2 GPU. That means that the Xbox Series S is targeted to play games at 1440p rather than 4K like the beastly Xbox Series X. So, while you'll be able to play next-generation games, they won't look as good as they do on the Xbox Series X.
And speaking of the Xbox Series X, unfortunately Walmart doesn't have that console in stock. We'd imagine that demand is probably a lot greater for Microsoft's flagship console, which is why it still isn't available in significant numbers. But if it does manage to make its way back online, we'll be sure to give you a heads up.
