Microsoft’s strong performance at Gamescom 2021
The Xbox series X is still not found in stock online. Since its launch in November 2020, delays in the manufacturing process and a global shortage of microchips have brought production of Microsoft’s next-gen console to a screeching halt.
While it’s easier to find the less advanced Xbox Series S in stock, the more powerful Xbox Series X sells out as quickly as new stock appears. Knowing when the Xbox will be restocked is key to grabbing one before everyone else.
So if you are wondering where to buy an Xbox Series X in the UK today, or when the Xbox is back in stock, our live inventory tracking blog is here to help. We’ll let you know of the latest stock drops as they occur, as well as any updates on planned restock dates, new games and accessories, and milestone events.

Here’s how to get an Xbox from BT
This is to avoid website overloads and automated shopping bots, which grab all available inventory before someone else can take a look.
Codes are emailed quite infrequently, and you still have to pay the full £ 449, but using any of these codes will give you an edge when trying to secure an Xbox Series X.

BT has restocked the Xbox series X for its customers

This offer is exclusive to BT customers and requires you to enter your code before you can proceed to checkout.

When will John Lewis & Partners restock the Xbox?
John Lewis & Associates has apparently given up on trying to get another Xbox X series allowance. The retailer hasn’t sold any consoles since July 12.
Mr. Lewis usually restocks products at 7 a.m. sharp, so we can now safely assume that the historic department store won’t be selling any Xboxes today.

The Xbox Series X Limited Edition ‘Halo Infinite’ Brand
Speaking of Game, the retailer is also one of only two places where you can pre-order the Infinite halo Xbox Series X Limited Edition Pack.
The game last stocked this limited-edition Xbox on Wednesday, August 25, and last sold the plain Xbox Series X August 13. Both types of console, you guessed it, are sold out.
We will notify you immediately Game receives a stipend from either of these Xboxes.

Does the game offer Xbox All Access?
It’s a quiet morning for Xbox restocking. Almost too quiet…
Although not available now, throughout September Game regularly had the Xbox All Access program in stock. With Xbox All Access, you pay £ 28.99 per month for 24 months instead of £ 449 up front, and you get two years of Game Pass Ultimate.
There is no catch. It’s an interest-free loan that requires a credit check with Klarna, and over the two years it’s actually slightly cheaper than buying the console and Game Pass Ultimate separately.
Microsoft is taking advantage of this because it gets a guaranteed Game Pass Ultimate subscriber for two years – you’re much less likely to cancel it after you’ve had it that long – and it knows you’re not a bad scalper to sell the console back to. profit.

Where to buy a PS5 today?
If there is a silver lining for Microsoft, it’s that the company’s biggest rival, Sony, faces the same production line issues.
The PlayStation 5 is about as hard to find in stock as the Xbox Series X, although in recent weeks the console has been restocked with increasing frequency. In fact, we expect some restocking of PS5 at the start of the week.

What Happens With Amazon’s Xbox Series X Stock?
Amazon should have the Xbox Series X in stock – it has it all, right?
Aside from a brief restocking on September 9 – so small it almost didn’t happen – Amazon has been sold out of the Xbox X series for months now.
The console will occasionally appear on one of Amazon’s European sites. The Xbox was in stock at Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain, and Amazon France in September, for example.
The point is, importing the Xbox from the EU comes with a hefty amount of taxes, shipping, and fees, and returns can be complicated and expensive. We’ll always notify you when the Xbox is in stock in Europe, but expect to pay at least £ 100 more to buy an Xbox this way.
If you’ve given up on waiting, Amazon currently has the less powerful Xbox Series S in stock (£ 249, Amazon.com).

When will the next Argos resupply?
While all is calm on the restocking front, let’s continue to check with some popular retailers.
Argos hasn’t restocked the Xbox Series X online for two months, but throughout the past week there have been in-store restockings in random locations across the country. These are sometimes listed on the Argos site as available for click and collect, then enter your zip code to check your local area for the elusive black box.
The easiest way to buy an Xbox Series X from Argos when dropping is through the app. Add the console to your Wish List, which lets you slip the Xbox into your shopping cart ahead of time for quick checkout when the time comes.

Highly predicted to restock the Xbox Series X tomorrow
On the last two occasions Very Restocked the PlayStation 5, the retailer restocked the Xbox X series at the same time. This is unusual behavior – buyers usually only want one of the next gen consoles, and selling both must be a huge strain on their website – but it helps us narrow down some scheduled dates for the next Xbox restock.
Very should restock the PS5 on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday this week, between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. That’s according to Twitter user @StockCheckerUK. If the retailer sticks to their custom, we should see more Xbox Series X inventory as well.
