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.
