Xbox Series X, Xbox Series SSource: Matt Brown | Windows Central

Walmart has announced plans to restock Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, providing the latest opportunity to score Microsoft's latest generation of consoles amid ongoing shortages. The company looks to provide a time for U.S. customers to purchase the devices on March 25, tied up in its Xbox All Access financing options.

Xbox Series X is Microsoft's latest and greatest console in early 2021, delivering up to 4K resolution and 120 frames-per-second (FPS) gameplay, going head-on with PlayStation 5. Microsoft also has a budget-friendly alternative in Xbox Series S, a compact, lower-powered machine geared toward 1080p and 1440p experiences. They usually cost $499 and $299, respectively, but Xbox All Access provides an alternative way to pay in monthly installments.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S stock hits Walmart.com on March 25, 2021, at 3 p.m. ET. They'll only be available while supplies last.

Xbox Series X is Microsoft's new flagship, as its most powerful console with over 12TF GPU performance and a custom SSD. It boasts up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS, full backward compatibility across four generations, and ray-tracing support.

Microsoft serves the next-generation for less with its budget-friendly Xbox Series S. The console packs the same high-performance CPU and SSD technology as Xbox Series X, while scaling back the GPU and removing the disc drive.

Xbox All Access is a 24-month financing program direct from Microsoft, available from top retailers worldwide, including Walmart. It allows buyers to purchase Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, with the all-inclusive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, at a low monthly fee with zero interest. It costs $35 per month for Xbox Series X, while Xbox Series S costs $25 through the program. It's a formal contract handled by agencies like Citizens One, which ties you into fixed monthly payments over the two years.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S saw record launches in November, with high demand leaving both next-generation devices hard to find in early 2021. Current world events have seen interest in gaming steadily climb, with shortages expected to continue throughout the year.
