How to Get an Xbox Series X Right Now
While you can’t get the Xbox Series X right now, if you don’t want to mess with a retailer or waiting for pre-orders to start back up when small amounts trickle in, you can look for a reseller on eBay. People are already reselling their Xbox Series X pre-orders on eBay for a several hundred dollar premia.
Be careful to read the listing, we’ve already spotted someone selling a piece of paper pretending to be a PS5, and there will doubtlessly be other questionable listings. eBay is pretty good at closing those down on pre-orders like this, but just be cautious.
