Xbox Series X stock – live: Latest UK restock news from Game, Argos, Asda and more
Update: Xbox Series X is in stock for customers at EE. Read on for more details.
Xbox Series X is over a year old, but global supply chain issues triggered by component shortages are gone MicrosoftThe next-gen console has been constantly out of stock since launch.
As last year drew to a close, UK retailers released thousands of stock consoles to meet consumer demand, with the likes of Very, Smyths Toys, Game, Argos, Asda and Amazon sell the Xbox Series X in droves. But January has been a drier affair so far, with only a handful of retailers receiving additional stock.
When it appears, the Xbox Series X sells out in minutes, as customers pick up available units as soon as they arrive. That’s why we’ve launched our Xbox Stock Tracker live blog, where we follow all UK retailers at once to bring you live stock alerts as they happen.
We’ll also bring you tips and advice for beating the crowds to buy an Xbox Series X, including where to pay attention, where Xbox might restock next, and how to register your interest in new consoles before they go on sale. .
Which UK retailers stock the Xbox Series X?
How to Buy an Xbox Series X Online
While there are no new restocks to report, let’s go over some basic tips when it comes to securing a console. Preparation is the key to success, and there are plenty of things you can do right now to make sure you’re ready for the next restock.
- Create an account and save your payment information at each of the retailers that stock Xbox Series X. They are listed in the main article above.
- Are you a BT customer or do you know someone who is? Register your interest on the BT site to get exclusive access to BT’s next delivery
- Download each retailer’s app (if it has one) and add Xbox Series X to your wishlist or “save for later” list
- When the console drops, use the link in your wishlist to add the Xbox to your cart – this usually has a higher success rate than browsing the website
- Note the package prices to ensure you get a good deal. In summary, the console itself is £450, controllers are £50, the official headset is £90 and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is £11 per month. The newly released game costs £60, but retailers usually bundle older games with the console
- Pay-as-you-go Xbox All Access program is great value, as long as you don’t already have a Game Pass subscription

And the curries? Can I buy an Xbox from Currys?
No, sorry. Your local store may have the odd console in stock if you’re very lucky, but curries has been out of stock online since December 22. When it is in stock, we advise you to add the console to your wishlist and try to complete your purchase via the Currys app.

Can you buy an Xbox from Microsoft?
Yes, but guess what? He’s worn out. The Microsoft Store last had Xbox Series X stock on December 21. But, as always, the consoles sold out quickly and we haven’t seen one since. Hopefully Microsoft will have a restock before the end of January.

When will the Xbox be available again from Amazon?
Amazon last restocked the Xbox Series X on January 4, although supply was so limited that the console was only on sale for about two minutes. While Amazon limits sales of Sony’s next-gen console to First customers, Xbox has no such protection. As such, it is exposed to automated bots and unscrupulous dealers and sells out in the blink of an eye.

For Asda, it’s the Xbox All Access scheme, which costs £28.99 a month for two years. For EE, existing Phone Network customers can add an Xbox Series X to their bill for £31 a month, after two years.

Xbox Inventory Tracking, Closing
Well, that’s it for us for Wednesday. It’s been an uneventful day of Xbox stock tracking in the UK, with this EE Bundle still floating around and AsdaXbox All Access is still available for anyone who likes to fill out forms.
There are more Xbox consoles to come, we’re sure. Yesterday’s spectacular restocking at Very was proof enough, and we expect heavy hitters like Amazon and Game to return to the Xbox restocking fun before the end of the month. To be the first to know when the next drop is, join us tomorrow when we resume the search.
Until then, we are out. You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.

Read our review of the new Nintendo Switch OLED
If handheld gaming is more your thing, check out our review of the new Nintendo Switch OLED. The console features an OLED display for the first time, which is larger than before and produces more vivid colors and deeper blacks. There’s also a redesigned kickstand and double the internal storage of its predecessor.
Our reviewer said of the £309.99 console: “The bigger screen is fantastic and playing games in handheld mode is an absolute joy. The kickstand is so sturdy and makes us never want to look at that little rocker on the back of the original Switch again…it’s absolutely the best version of the console yet.
