Forget Xbox Series X Inventory: This is the Best Time to Buy the Console

The Xbox X Series is here – if you can get one. However, if you’re trying to find the next generation Microsoft console, I’ve got some good news: You do not really need one yet. Since the Xbox Series X plays the same games as the Xbox One (or a good gaming computer), you can safely wait until next year and complete your backlog in the meantime.

Still, if now is not the time to buy an Xbox Series X, when will it be – if it is at all? This question is relatively easy to answer for the PS5 (“When more exclusive games appear”), it’s harder to do for the Xbox Series X. This is because the Series X is merely one element in Microsoft’s larger gaming ecosystem, not necessarily the focal point.

The truth is that buying an Xbox Series X is almost entirely random, as you have access to most of the same games on gaming systems you currently own – and soon you will not need a gaming system at all.
