The console was also reportedly in stock at Game and the Microsoft Store earlier on Monday but is currently listed as sold out at both retailers.
While Xbox Series X and PS5 were released almost 18 months ago, both continue to suffer from stock issues as a result of a global chip shortage, although recently Microsoft’s console has been more readily available than Sony’s.
The CEO of Intel warned this month that the global shortage of semiconductors will now likely last until 2024.
Microsoft reported in April that its gaming business had posted record revenue for a non-holiday quarter during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
During an earnings call, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella also claimed strong Xbox Series X/S sales had seen the company capture market share for two quarters in a row.
“We are the market leader this quarter among the next-gen consoles in the United States, Canada, the UK and western Europe,” he said.
Microsoft expects gaming revenue to decline during its current fiscal quarter due to lower player engagement and “constrained console supply”.
