We cannot verify if the retailer has any available Xbox stock right now — all we know is that Very has opened up its queuing system for the second time today.

Xbox Game Studios teased (the de-teased) the new ‘Fable’
Microsoft seemed to tease a major Fable announcement on Twitter before quickly deleting the tweet, walking back the tease and putting the genie back in the bottle.
“We’re excited to kick off something special tomorrow!” tweeted the Xbox Game Studios account. '(Just give us one more day to prepare the chickens.)🐔”
“We’d call it our Fable Anniversary, but that name was already taken.”
A long-awaited new entry in Microsoft’s beloved fantasy RPG series (which features, among other things, chickens) is already known to be in the works. It will be developed by Playground Games (van Forza Horizon) but so far no details have been spilled.
It’s not clear what the now-deleted tweet was actually about, or whether it really was alluding to any kind of Fable announcement. In our professional opinion, we think it was a clumsy reference that spiralled out of control.
Xbox fans, misinterpreting tweets and spiralling out of control? Say it ain’t so.

The retailer dropped the PS5 at the same time as the Xbox this morning, so presumably there a huge numbers of shoppers still trying to get through. We advise you don’t refresh the page, and don’t try to open the store link in more tabs.
PlayStation 5 fans are now being allowed out of the waiting room to find that their preferred console is in stock, giving us hope that we could see the same for the Xbox soon.
You just gotta believe.

AAN briefly listed the Xbox series X as in stock – as a standalone console as well as part of a £599 bundle – but within sekondes the product listing was removed again. Augh.
We’ll keep checking the retailer’s product listings in case the Xbox reappears.

“Try using the Very smartphone app instead. We’ve heard of shoppers who have been able to navigate through the virtual queuing system more quickly using the app. Soos dit staan, we’re not sure how much stock Baie added to their site this morning, but if the app can speed things up then we think it’s worth a try.”

Here are some more tips for the waiting room.
Very uses your IP address to determine your position in the queue. Refreshing too many times can cause the site to kick you out or even block you, so don’t open too many tabs on the same device.
You can give yourself more chances of getting through the waiting room by using your phone (on mobile data), or using another device on a VPN (which disguises your IP address).
The best advice? Just be patient and wait. Last time Very dropped, we saw shoppers being released from the waiting room up to an hour after first clicking the link.
