Xbox series X stock – live: latest UK replenishment updates from Very, Game, Argos and more
Vampire – The Masquerade – Swansong – Emem Character XBOX Trailer
The Xbox Series X is still incredibly difficult to buy, despite its launch in November 2020. Delays in the manufacturing process and a global shortage of microchips have halted production of Microsoft’s next-gen console.
While it’s easier to find the cheaper but less powerful 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.
If you are wondering where to buy an Xbox Series X in the UK today, or when the Xbox is back in stock, this 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.

Is John Lewis a good place to buy an Xbox Series X?
In short, no. Normally we recommend John lewis as a large retailer of expensive electronic devices like game consoles, due to the included two-year warranty. You can even add two years of accidental damage coverage for Â£ 15. But, while all retailers have struggled with Xbox Series X inventory, John Lewis has had a particularly tough time.
According to our information, John Lewis has only had three restockings of Xbox Series X since the start of the summer, on June 22 and July 7 and 12. There has been no more stock since. And, while the odd console may have landed in a physical store since, the website currently states that inventory information at local stores is not available. So while the two-year warranty is a nice bonus, we recommend IndyBest readers to shop elsewhere for their Xbox Series X.

When was the last time Game had an Xbox Series X restock?
Game has had more Xbox restockings than most other retailers this year. There were no less than six (six!) Until August, followed by more on September 8 and 24, although these were made through the Xbox All Access program.
Speaking of All Access, the monthly payment plan was available – with the Xbox Series X, nothing less – for much of September. This allows players to pick up a Series X for Â£ 28.99 per month for 24 months. Along with the console, this also includes Game Pass Ultimate, giving you access to plenty of games to play without purchasing them individually.
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.

Does Amazon have Xbox Series X shares?
We all know Amazon sells just about everything. But does it have Xbox Series X stock? No. In fact, the retail giant hasn’t offered much Xbox at all compared to its rivals, with only a few restockings in September and two in August (but only on its French and German sites).
While it’s possible to purchase an Xbox Series X from Amazon’s international websites (when they have stock, at least), this will incur additional taxes and shipping charges, often on the order of of Â£ 100. So unless you are desperate we recommend that you wait until Amazon UK receives more stock. Whenever it can be …

Don’t forget to check your local Smyths Toys store
Smyths Toys is due to be restocked online this month, but we urge readers to check their local stores as well. Stock sometimes arrives without notice, so if you have a branch nearby you should make a habit of calling to check. The retailer also has a tool on its website to check inventory in physical stores. This currently shows zero stock of Xbox Series Xs across the UK (what a surprise), but don’t give up hope – we’ve seen the odd console pop up there in the past.

When will Smyths Toys restock the Xbox Series X?
Smyths Toys is currently sold out in the Xbox X series, but lately the retailer has restocked the console in small numbers and at seemingly random branches of its stores across the country. If you are passing by a store, it is worth checking out the Xbox – Smyths often restocks in-store without listing availability online.
As for online stock, the retailer says the new Xbox Series X stock will arrive at some point in October, without offering a specific date. Smyths last has an Xbox restock on September 9 and 24, but the former only includes a handful of consoles and the latter is via Microsoft’s Xbox All Access.

When was the last time Currys PC World had an Xbox restock?
You would think that a big electronics retailer like Currys PC World would be a sure bet for the stock Xbox X series. But no; Like many others, Currys has struggled to consistently deliver the console in demand. The retailer last had a restock of the Xbox Series X on September 7, and before that, we saw three on August 4, 9, and 19.
As with most retailers, the Xbox S Series is available for purchase from Currys right now, at its retail price of Â£ 249, but the X Series is currently not available.

Will Very be restocked today?
Exceptionally, Very tends to add new Xbox Series X stock to its website at the same time as the PS5 stock. We can only imagine what this must do to the poor website, but it’s a technique Very seems happy to follow. According to Twitter account @StockCheckerUK, Very will have a PS5 restock on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday this week. So if the retailer sticks to their usual strategy, Xbox Series X inventory could arrive on the same day, potentially even today.
The retailer’s website currently says stock for the Xbox X series and S series is coming soon.

Which retailers have had a restock in October so far?
The month has been calm, with BT the only UK retailer to have had an Xbox Series X restock so far. We expect to see more throughout the month, of course, but predicting who might be next isn’t easy. All eyes are on Very, which is expected to be restocked at some point this week. It’s been as long as Currys PC World had an Xbox restock (September 7th) and AO is also not expected to be far, having had no restocking since September 17.

Hello and welcome
Hello, Xbox hunters! Welcome to another day of trying to buy an Xbox Series X. We know it’s been a struggle for months now, but restockings are happening – you just need to be quick. Sometimes restockings can come as a total surprise, like the one we’ve seen from BT yesterday, the first in five months from the telecommunications company.
Today we were hoping to see a restocking of the Xbox Series X of Very, so we’ll keep our eyes open for that.

Xbox action trackers, sign out
That’s all from us, thanks for reading the Xbox Inventory Tracking Live Blog today!
Today we had the first drop of BT since we started this blog five months ago. The telecommunications and broadband provider has an allocation of Xbox consoles available to all BT customers who previously had have expressed interest in Microsoft’s next-generation machine.
If you are a BT customer or know the person whose email address is associated with your BT account – your parents, your roommate, your cat – the code for buy xbox x series should be sitting in their inbox right now. There are only a few consoles left, so by the time you read this, the Xbox may already be depleted.
Did you miss it? Well, join us again tomorrow when we pick up the hunt for Microsoft’s new console again.
