Xbox series X stock – live: today’s UK news on the restocking of Currys, John Lewis, Argos and more
Microsoft Flight Simulator will occupy 100 GB of your Xbox storage
Update: Xbox Series X is now sold out at Curries.
Now eight months after its launch, the Xbox Series X continues to be mired in supply chain issues, making it nearly impossible for buyers to find Microsoft’s next-gen console in stock online.
The cheaper Xbox Series S is easier to find in most UK stores, but the more powerful Xbox Series X is more in demand. New stocks appear sporadically and sell within minutes.
If you want to know where to buy an Xbox Series X today, we’ve got you covered. Our live inventory tracking blog will keep you up to date with the latest inventory drops as they happen, along with all the news on planned replenishment dates and milestone events.

So, the legendary Currys PC World replenishment materialized this afternoon, just as the oracles predicted.
What else have these shrewd oracles thrown up in their oracle sleeves? Well, with Currys having finally caught on, we’re now looking further down our list of retailers to those three: Very, Amazon, and Argos. Maybe with a little AO.com for good measure, these guys are absolutely painful for an Xbox restock.
Join us again tomorrow morning to be one of the first to know when the Xbox Series X makes another appearance. We promise that we
will not be accidentally linked to Google docs will work with our IT team to fix any crazy bugs that broke our last “buy now” link.
Until then, good evening!

Xbox Series X is now sold out at Currys
The retailer repeatedly added more consoles to its inventory, causing the Xbox Series X to arrive and run out of stock on several occasions. Bundles were also available, though, again, availability was skyrocketing all over the place.
We recommend that you keep an eye on the product page for a while, in case more stock comes in. Other buyers can also remove the Xbox Series X from their cart, which frees you one up.

More details on ‘Fifa 22’ on Xbox Series X
EA revealed a lot more details on the upcoming FIFA 22 on Xbox series X – one more reason to keep looking for your next-gen upgrade.
On the EA Blog, the game developer revealed some of the features intended exclusively for next-gen consoles. The main one is a more detailed commentary, in which the milestones of individual players, goal records, winning streaks and your team’s performance in the league are all noticed by the commentators.
FIFA 22 will also simulate one of the most obnoxious fan behaviors. No, not the torch thing. Crowds will start to come out of the stadium early if you play poorly.
The Xbox Series X version of FIFA 22 launches October 1 and is available for pre-order now (£ 69.99, Argos.co.uk).

Can we expect an Xbox restock at John Lewis?
The department store hasn’t had an Xbox restock for many months. But don’t lose faith: John Lewis & Partners is still selling next-gen consoles. There was the PlayStation 5 in stock as recently as last week, so we expect some moves on the Xbox Series X front soon.
The retailer is an early bird, preferring to restock between 7am and 7:30 am, so set your alarms.

Here’s how to play Xbox games on your laptop
Maybe not even need an Xbox Series X, have you ever thought about that?
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now play a limited selection of Xbox games on their PC using Microsoft’s cloud streaming service.
You don’t even need a gaming PC, just a pretty fast internet connection. Xbox Cloud Gaming streams games from Microsoft’s servers to your laptop or phone, through your internet browser or the Xbox app. You’ll need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription (£ 32.99, Argos.co.uk), which unlocks on-demand access to over 100 games.
Fortunately, decent laptops are much easier to find than the Xbox X series. If you’re considering an upgrade, check out our list of the best laptops in 2021.

Differences between Xbox Series X and Series S
There are a grand total of two next-gen Xboxes, the less powerful Xbox s series and the most advanced Xbox x series.
They both run the same next-gen games (along with older Xbox games thanks to backward compatibility), but the cheaper Xbox Series S has less processing power under the hood. This means the graphics won’t look as detailed and performance can be a bit slower.
For this reason, the Xbox Series X is considered here as the “real” next-gen console – but both consoles are excellent gaming machines. The Xbox S series has another big advantage in that it is much easier to find in stock than the Xbox X series.
The Xbox S-Series costs £ 249 (Amazon.co.uk), which looks pretty good compared to the Xbox Series X at £ 449.

Where to buy a PS5 today?
A small consolation for the Xbox bigwigs is that their biggest rival faces serious supply chain issues as well. The PlayStation 5 is in high demand, but it’s a bit easier to find on the shelves than the Xbox Series X.
We’ve got a good idea of which retailers are most likely to restock Sony’s next generation, but you still need to be quick to grab one when they appear.
