Trailer for upcoming Xbox Game ‘Forza Horizon 5’
The Xbox series X is almost impossible for shoppers to find in stock. The console is now nine months out from launch, and continues to suffering supply chain issues stemming from the global shortage of microchips.
The less powerful Xbox series S is easier to find in stock at most UK stores, but the more advanced Xbox series X is in higher demand. New stock appears without warning and sells out in minutes.
The console is currently sold out across the board, but if you want to know where to buy an Xbox series X today, we’ve got you covered. 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:
When will Asda have the Xbox series X in stock?
Though the retailer occasionally receives fresh stock of the PlayStation 5, Asda rarely restocks the Xbox series X. Rude.
It’s been at least six months since we last saw Asda’s “buy now” button light up. We’ve all but given up hope that the supermarket chain will restock the Xbox, but we’ll keep checking all the same.

Is the Xbox series X in stock at John Lewis?
The store is currently sold out of the Xbox series X, but unlike most other retailers – who like to take us by surprise – John Lewis tends to restock at precisely 7am. This makes it one of the easier online stores to monitor for new Xbox series X stock, though no new consoles have appeared there in several months now.
If you’re up and about at 7am, it’s worth casting an eye over John Lewis to check for any early morning stock drops.

Game could restock the Xbox series X today
Keep an eye on Game today.
The retailer has illuminated its big purple “buy” button again – you can click it until you’re blue in the face, but there’s no Xbox stock available.
So why do we care? Well, Game often activates its “buy” button just before dropping fresh Xbox stock. The console is usually sold exclusively through the pay-as-you-go Xbox All Access programme rather than the basic £449 purchase.

When will Amazon restock the Xbox series X?
It’s been 43 days since Amazon last restocked the Xbox series X, though supply was so limited the console was only on sale for around two minutes.
Whereas Amazon restricts sales of Sony’s next-generation console to Prime customers, the Xbox gets no such protection. As such it’s exposed to automated bots and unscrupulous resellers and sells out in the blink of an eye.
You have to have fast fingers to get one into your basket. Make sure you’re signed into your Amazon account, and ensure your payment and delivery information is up to date. If you haven’t already, register for a 30 day trial of Amazon Prime in case the Xbox series X is exclusively available to those hallowed customers.

Here’s the limited edition ‘Halo Infinite’ branded Xbox series X
Announced yesterday, the Halo Infinite branded Xbox series X (£479.99, Microsoft Store) boasts “a custom console design imprinted with stars as seen from the surface of Zeta Halo – extending onto the fan behind a blue vent inspired by Cortana.”
It also makes Halo sounds when you turn it on, which is nice. We want one.
Microsoft has the temerity to call this Xbox a “limited edition”, as if every Xbox isn’t a limited edition right now.
We’ve tuned our Xbox stock trackers accordingly and will alert you if pre-orders are available.

‘Halo Infinite’ release date announced
After a year of delays, Halo Infinite (pre-order for £54.99, Game.co.uk) finally launches on 8 December. Microsoft announced the release date at last night’s Gamescom showcase.
Microsoft’s blockbuster FPS is limping over the finish line, arriving without two major features: co-op multiplayer and the series’ favourite Forge mode. Both will be added later.
Here’s a multiplayer trailer to gawp at.

How to buy an Xbox series X from Argos
Argos has been quietly restocking the Xbox series X for collection at certain local shops around the country this morning. If you haven’t already, enter your postcode on the console’s product page to check your nearest branch for available stock.
These Xboxes aren’t available for delivery nationwide, so you can’t buy them online as you normally would. You’ve got to get on your bike (literally) and chase that dream (metaphorically).

The Xbox series X is now out of stock at Game
The Xbox series X was briefly restocked at Game at 8pm yesterday evening. Microsoft’s next-gen console was available to buy through the Xbox All Access programme.
Not to toot our own stock predicting horns, but we called this drop three hours before it happened. We could feel it in our waters.
