Xbox series X stock – live: latest UK restocking updates from Currys, Game and more
Microsoft’s great performance at Gamescom 2021
Xbox Series X is still sold out across the UK. Persistent supply chain problems resulting from the global shortage of microchips have nearly halted production of Microsoft’s console, leaving buyers wondering where to buy the new Xbox.
The cheaper Xbox Series S is less powerful and more widely available, but the more advanced Xbox Series X sells out within minutes or even seconds of new stock appearing. Knowing when and where the Xbox will be restocked next is key to getting one.
If you want to know where to buy an Xbox Series X in UK today, you have come to the right place. Our live inventory tracking blog will keep you up to date with the latest stock drops as they happen, as well as any news on planned replenishment dates and milestone events.

That’s all about us today. Thank you for joining the Xbox Inventory Tracking Live Blog, and please accept our sincere apologies for no Xbox to report.
It’s a bit like a safari: sometimes you don’t see the elephant (the Xbox series X), so you just have to settle for the less powerful and more accessible zebra (the Xbox series S).
But if a striped horse doesn’t cut the mustard, join us here tomorrow morning when we resume our research on Xbox Series X. Until then!

Differences between Xbox Series X and Series S
There are two next-gen Xboxes: the less powerful Xbox s series and the most advanced Xbox x series.
They both run the same next-gen games (along with older Xbox games thanks to backward compatibility), but the cheaper Xbox Series S has less processing power and storage space. This means the graphics won’t look as detailed and performance may be a bit slower, and you’ll have to use an external hard drive or delete and re-download games to free up space.
For this reason, the Xbox Series X is considered the “real” next-gen console here – but both consoles are great gaming machines. The Xbox S series has another big advantage in that it is much easier to find in stock than the Xbox X series.
Xbox S series costs £ 249 (Amazon.com), which looks positively advantageous over the Xbox Series X at £ 449.

The best VPN for Xbox Series X
The Xbox Series X offers top-notch security when gaming online, but there are other reasons why you might want to install a VPN on an Xbox.
For example: if you use your Xbox to watch movies and TV shows on platforms like Netflix, Disney + and Amazon prime, a VPN allows you to spoof your location and access content that is not normally available in your country. In order for your Xbox Series X to maintain peak performance while using a VPN, you need to make sure that the service you choose is fast and responsive enough to avoid online game delays and dropouts.

Read our full Xbox Series X review
If you can’t buy an Xbox Series X, why not do the best thing to do and read all about it?
Our most advanced Xbox review to date describes a powerful machine that’s still waiting for truly next-gen games to take advantage of hardware. The pandemic has slowed down more than just the production of game consoles. Many video games have seen their development schedules delayed by the sudden switch to remote work in 2020, which means the launch dates for major titles have had to be pushed back.
Still, the Xbox Series X is impressive. As our reviewer put it, “Inside the black box are some very powerful components, corresponding to a high end gaming PC in a chassis the size of a Hovis loaf”.

Does “Deathloop” have a release date on Xbox?
Arkane’s assassination game was a huge hit on PS5, but when Death loop to launch on Xbox series X?
Not before 2022 at the earliest.
Sony has purchased the exclusive rights to Death loop while the game was still in development, meaning it won’t appear on Microsoft’s next-gen console until September of next year at the earliest.
The game is also available on PC.

How to buy an Xbox Series X online
Sometimes we’re so busy thinking about or buy the Xbox series X, that we forget How? ‘Or’ What to purchase the Xbox Series X.
Here are some general tips for packaging Microsoft’s next-gen console when it appears in stock.
- Register accounts at retailers most likely to restock, such as Amazon, Currys PC World, Smyths Toys, Argos and Game
- Add your payment information and shipping address in advance for fast payment
- Download each retailer’s app and add Xbox Series X to your wishlist (or “save for later” list)
- When the console drops, use the link in your wishlist to add the Xbox to your cart – this usually has a higher success rate than website browsing
- Write down the prices of the packages to make sure you get a good deal. All in all, the console itself costs £ 450, the controllers £ 50, the official headset £ 90, and the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs £ 11 per month. The recently released game costs £ 60, but retailers typically bundle older games with the console
- Xbox All Access pay-as-you-go is great value, as long as you don’t already have a Game Pass membership
