The Xbox One is back in stock at Amazon after selling out earlier this month and unlike many Xbox One sales in December there is no Bundle required which allows shoppers to buy an Xbox One for $499 with delivery as early as Wednesday with overnight shipping.
Newegg also offers an Xbox One in stock without the need to pay high bundle prices that the retailer offered earlier this month and in November.

Over the weekend the Best Buy advertised the Xbox One and PS4 in stock at retail locations with lines and wristbands, but with the Amazon Xbox One shoppers don’t need to bother with the hassles of buying in store.
The Xbox One is $499, but it is selling for several hundred more on eBay and many retailers are offering bundles with accessories and games that push the Xbox One price up to almost $2,000.
It will be tough to find and Xbox One in stock this holiday season with many stores selling out within minutes, so if you think you need an Xbox One for a gift or for yourself it is better to order and then think about it, than to do comparisons and research now.
In our Xbox One review we came to the following conclusion,
“Overall, it’s a good console and its full of potential. It delivers a decent gaming experience and a future-proof entertainment experience when it’s not bogged down by bugs and an inconsistent user interface choices.”
The Xbox One and PS4 face off this holiday season for an early lead on the new generation of gaming, but with limited launch titles the overall value of both the PS4 and Xbox One will come over the next five to eight years when games arrive to take full advantage of the power and system updates deliver better performance and new features. If you want a Xbox One this holiday season you will need to be ready to order fast on deals like this, or be ready to hassle with eBay or Craigslist, just make sure you don’t pay $600 for a picture of the Xbox One.
