Oppdater: The Xbox series X is in stock at certain Argos stores right now
Since it launched in November last year, de Xbox series X has been consistently sold out everywhere in the UK. A global shortage of microprocessors, coupled with local and international supply chain problems, has slowed production of the new console to a crawl and left shoppers wondering where to buy the new Xbox.
The cheaper and less powerful Xbox series S is more readily available to buy online, but the more advanced Xbox series X sells out within seconds of new stock appearing. Knowing when and where the Xbox will be restocked next is key to successfully getting hold of one.
If you want to know where to buy an Xbox series X in the UK today, du har kommet til rett sted. Our stock tracking liveblog will update you with the latest stock drops as soon as they happen, as well as any news on predicted restock dates and milestone events.
Check stock from UK Xbox series X retailers below:
Will Amazon restock the Xbox today?
Amazon treated us to a tiny restock last Thursday. This was both the first time the retail giant had restocked in the UK in almost two months, and the first time it restocked later in the week than a Wednesday.
This revelation tipped everything we know about how Amazon restocks the Xbox on its head. Now anything is possible: a mid-morning Friday restock? A drop on a Sunday night at 2am?
Amazon currently has the less powerful Xbox series S in stock (£249, Amazon.co.uk).
The Xbox series X is in stock at Argos
Argos has restocked the Xbox series X at many of its branches around the country this morning.
Check now to see if your nearest store has the console in stock.
Will Currys PC World restock the Xbox series X?
We’re predicting a potential Xbox restock at Currys PC World denne morgenen.
There’s an outside chance that the retailer could drop some consoles on us in the next few hours, based mostly on previous restocking patterns. Currys last had the Xbox available on 7 september, when it sold several thousand consoles shortly before 9am.
That restock came in waves, with new stock reappearing precisely every half an hour, which was a fun and not-at-all stressful way to buy consumer electronics.
Good morning, Xbox hunters!
Welcome to Friday’s Xbox stock tracking liveblog. Heya!
Today – as we do every day – we’re tracking every UK retailer at once for any sign of Microsoft’s elusive black cuboid, to bring you live Xbox restock updates as they happen.
If you’re on the hunt for an Xbox on this bright and sunny Friday, stick with us.
Xbox stock trackers, standing down
That’s all from us today. Thank you for joining us on the Xbox stock tracking liveblog. No really, we mean it. You did great.
Less great is the abject lack of new stock drops to report. Setting aside the comprehensive Spill restock, no other UK retailers have dared raise their head above the parapet.
This only strengthens our resolve to find more consoles and bring them to you. Will we see a rare Friday Xbox restock tomorrow? Dare we dream?
Join us again tomorrow morning to be the first to know if it happens.
The best VPN for the Xbox series X
The Xbox series X has impeccable built-in security when playing games online, but there reasons besides security to install a VPN for the Xbox.
If you use your Xbox as your main entertainment hub, a virtual private network allows you to spoof your location and access telly shows and movies not normally available in your country, such as those found on American Netflix, which is full of amazing things they don’t want British people seeing. You can’t install a VPN directly to an Xbox series X, but you can install one on your internet router to anonymise all of the web traffic in your home in one fell swoop.
A slow VPN will hinder your online gaming, so to keep your Xbox series X running at peak performance you’ll want to make sure the VPN you choose is fast and responsive enough to avoid lag and dropouts when playing online. Check out our round-up of the best VPNs for torrenting, streaming and gaming.

The best Xbox series X games to play right now
We’ve actually had our own Xbox series X for a while – running this stock tracking liveblog every day is an entirely selfless act – so we put together a list of the best Xbox series X games we’ve been playing in 2021.
It’s been a slow start to this console generation, with the pandemic putting the brakes on the development of a bunch of new and original next-gen games, so a lot of the best Xbox series X games right now are remasters of classics from the Xbox One era and beyond. If you’ve got your Xbox series X ordered and are looking for something to play, have a quick browse.
Wondering what to play next? Here’s our list of the best Xbox series X games of 2021, from Forza Horizon 4 to Halo: The Master Chief Collection
What’s the difference between Xbox series X and series S?
When the Xbox series X is this scarce, maybe it’s time to reconsider whether the Xbox series S could be your next console.
Very much the Liam Hemsworth to the series X’s Chris, the cheaper Xbox can play all of the same games as the top-of-the-range Xbox series X. On the less powerful console the overall graphics quality will be dialled down. The Xbox series S also doesn’t have a disc drive, has just 512GB of storage and can only play downloaded games.
The main thing the Xbox series S has going for it is that it’s much easier to find in stock than the more popular series X. It’s also cheaper, and costs just £249 (Amazon.co.uk). We also think it looks way cooler, but maybe that’s just us.
Here are the comparison specs.
Xbox series S specs:
- CPU: Custom Zen 2 8-core CPU
- GPU: 4 TFLOPS, 20 CUS
- Memory: 10GB GDDR6
- Storage: 512GB SSD
- Resolution: 1440p at 60fps
Xbox series X specs:
- CPU: AMD 8-core Zen 2 @ 3.8 GHz
- GPU: 12TFLOPS, 52 CUs @ 1.825 GHz
- Memory: 16GB GDDR6
- Storage: 1TB custom WD SSD, optional 1T
- Resolution: 4K at 60fps
Does ‘Deathloop’ have a release date on Xbox?
Deathloop launched on PS5 and PC earlier this week. Arkane’s time-bending assassination game has been met with widespread critical acclaim, but when will Deathloop launch on Xbox series X?
Not for a while yet, we’re afraid.
Sony snapped up the exclusive rights to Deathloop on console while the game was still in its development phase, meaning it won’t appear on Microsoft’s next-generation console until September 2022 at the earliest.
Curiously, since that exclusivity agreement was made Microsoft acquired Deathloop’s publisher, Bethesda, for the sum of $7.5bn. The takeover hasn’t overridden the existing exclusivity arrangement with Sony however, meaning the game will remain PS5-only for at least a year.
Turns out there are some things that $7.5bn can’t buy.
