Hard to believe it's been more than a year since Microsoft launched the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S. Since then, the console has seen stellar releases from Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 to Psychonauts 2 and Microsoft Flight Simulator. This isn't even taking into account the quality third-party and indie titles available to play.

Microsoft is not messing around either, purchasing Fallout developer Bethesda as well as Call of Duty maker Activision Blizzard, meaning some of the biggest gaming properties in the world could soon be home exclusively to the Xbox. A monumental game-changer if we've ever seen one.  

Of course, actually getting your hands on the consoles is another matter altogether. While the all-digital Xbox Series S is a reasonably straightforward purchase from most retailers, the Xbox Series X has proven troublesome time and time again. With chip shortages and manufacturer issues expected to continue well into 2022, T3 thought it better to step in to help consumers hunt down the console and start playing the latest, greatest games as soon as possible. 

The official T3 Xbox Series X tracker is frequently updated to bring you the latest information to secure the new next-gen console. Naturally, there are a few more steps you can take ahead of time to best prepare for any unexpected restocks – such as having your details saved across major retailers, utilising social media and opting for bundles when available – but check back regularly here to find out the latest stock information. 

Where to buy Xbox Series X in the UK

Amazon has Xbox Series X stock live right now for the first time since January. This is the standalone console with next-day delivery available for anyone with a Prime membership. The retailer still has Xbox Series S bundles live.

GAME has Xbox Series X stock live now with lots of bundles up for grabs – including an extra controller. You can also get the standalone Xbox console too via Xbox All Access, meaning no need to pay for any games for two years.

EE has an Xbox Series X bundle live now with a 24-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, so in theory, you wouldn't need to buy another game for two years. You have to be an account holder to access the purchase page and add it to your pay-as-you-go contract.

ASDA has Xbox Series X stock coming in and out of stock quite regularly at the minute, however, it can only be purchased by taking up Xbox All Access. This gives you access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for 24 months, with over 100 games and access to first-party titles on launch, plus more benefits.

Smyths Toys
Smyths Toys has more Xbox Series X via Microsoft's Xbox All Access program. This gives you access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for 24 months, which features over 100 games and access to first-party titles on launch, plus more benefits.

Argos last had a limited number of Xbox Series X stock available on January 26. Only a handful of stores across the country had some of the consoles up for sale with the bundle arriving with an extra Xbox controller and Forza Horizon 5. 

Currys had Xbox Series X up for sale on December 27 last, offering bundles with either a 1TB hard drive expansion or an additional controller. It does have a number of standalone Xbox Series S consoles available, however. 

Why not buy directly from the source? The Microsoft store last had an Xbox Series X restock on December 17, with its highly sought after Halo Infinite limited edition console up for sale. Naturally, it sold out incredibly fast. 

Online tech store BOX has an Xbox Series X bundle go live on December 16 last. It consisted of a standalone console, Forza Horizon 5 and "Playseat Challenge cockpit", which appears to be a chair. 

Very had a restock of Xbox Series X consoles on December 13. We recommend going through the app to speed up the process. More stock is expected soon. 

BT Store
BT last went live with Xbox Series X stock for anyone that holds an account with the firm on December 13. Just like PlayStation, BT sends out a batch of codes to its customers which can then be redeemed and used to make the purchase.  

Studio Xbox Series X stock is expected to return in the future. It has a dedicated page that anyone can sign up to show their interest in making a console purchase. 

ShopTo has been pretty good with Xbox Series X stock, enforcing a one per customer rule (bad luck, bots). Hopefully, another restock should be soon.
