PS5 Restock – Xbox series X stock – live: Latest UK restock updates from Argos, Game, Currys, Smyths and more
Microsoft’s great showing at Gamescom 2021
Update: The Xbox series X is in stock at certain Argos stores right now
Since it launched in November last year, the Xbox series X has been consistently sold out everywhere in the UK. A global shortage of microprocessors, coupled with local and international supply chain problems, has slowed production of the new console to a crawl and left shoppers wondering where to buy the new Xbox.
The cheaper and less powerful Xbox series S is more readily available to buy online, but the more advanced Xbox series X sells out within seconds of new stock appearing. Knowing when and where the Xbox will be restocked next is key to successfully getting hold of one.
If you want to know where to buy an Xbox series X in the UK today, you’ve come to the right place. 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:
Is the Xbox in stock at Asda?
Whereas Tesco appears to have given up on restocking the Xbox series X entirely, Asda still occasionally receives stock of Microsoft’s new console.
The retailer is currently in the midst of one of the longest dry spells on record however. It’s now been 84 days since Asda last had stock.
The retailer restocks so sporadically that it’s difficult to predict when the Xbox might crop up there again. But don’t worry: we track every UK retailer, regardless of how often they drop.

Is the Xbox series X in stock at Very?
How out of stock is the Xbox at Very? Very. It is very out of stock.
Very restocked the Xbox series X earlier this week on Tuesday, 14 September.
The retailer has restocked the Xbox roughly once every four weeks for the last three months, and always on a Tuesday or a Wednesday. Based on this pattern, we forecast another drop at Very on 12 October or 19 October.
We know, right? That’s ages away.

Could Game restock the Xbox today?
For whatever reason, not many retailers restock consoles on a Friday, but Game regularly bucks this trend with surprise late-week Xbox drops.
The retailer has had Microsoft’s console available through Xbox All Access almost every day since Wednesday last week, as well as stock available to buy in stores around the country. The last online restock was on 25 August, when Game sold pre-orders of the Halo Infinite limited edition Xbox series X bundle.
To date, Game is the only retailer besides the official Microsoft Store to sell pre-orders of the starry, Halo themed console and controller.

Does AO have the Xbox series X in stock?
You might not think you have anything in common with AO, the Bolton-based electrical retailer, but you do: neither of you have an Xbox series X.
AO last restocked the Xbox on 1 September, and before that on 3 August, which puts the retailer into a nice and predictable monthly-restocking pattern.
As neat a pattern as that is, it means we’re less likely to see the Xbox restocked at AO until the beginning of October, two weeks from now.
Did you know that AO is short for Appliances Online? Well now you do.

Will Amazon restock the Xbox today?
Amazon treated us to a tiny restock last Thursday. This was both the first time the retail giant had restocked in the UK in almost two months, and the first time it restocked later in the week than a Wednesday.
This revelation tipped everything we know about how Amazon restocks the Xbox on its head. Now anything is possible: a mid-morning Friday restock? A drop on a Sunday night at 2am?
Amazon currently has the less powerful Xbox series S in stock (£249, Amazon.co.uk).

The Xbox series X is in stock at Argos
Argos has restocked the Xbox series X at many of its branches around the country this morning.
Check now to see if your nearest store has the console in stock.

Will Currys PC World restock the Xbox series X?
We’re predicting a potential Xbox restock at Currys PC World this morning.
There’s an outside chance that the retailer could drop some consoles on us in the next few hours, based mostly on previous restocking patterns. Currys last had the Xbox available on 7 September, when it sold several thousand consoles shortly before 9am.
That restock came in waves, with new stock reappearing precisely every half an hour, which was a fun and not-at-all stressful way to buy consumer electronics.

Xbox stock trackers, standing down
That’s all from us today. Thank you for joining us on the Xbox stock tracking liveblog. No really, we mean it. You did great.
Less great is the abject lack of new stock drops to report. Setting aside the comprehensive Game restock, no other UK retailers have dared raise their head above the parapet.
This only strengthens our resolve to find more consoles and bring them to you. Will we see a rare Friday Xbox restock tomorrow? Dare we dream?
Join us again tomorrow morning to be the first to know if it happens.

The best VPN for the Xbox series X
The Xbox series X has impeccable built-in security when playing games online, but there reasons besides security to install a VPN for the Xbox.
If you use your Xbox as your main entertainment hub, a virtual private network allows you to spoof your location and access telly shows and movies not normally available in your country, such as those found on American Netflix, which is full of amazing things they don’t want British people seeing. You can’t install a VPN directly to an Xbox series X, but you can install one on your internet router to anonymise all of the web traffic in your home in one fell swoop.
