Xbox Series X-Lager – live: Asda, Argos, Currys, Game and other Restock news today
Update: Xbox All Access is available at Asda. Read on for more details.
Xbox Series X is this year’s hot ticket gift. Launched in November 2020, the next-generation console is in short supply and in high demand, with what little inventory is almost sold out as soon as it appears.
Bottlenecks in the global supply chain coupled with a lack of components have slowed production of the console, leaving UK buyers wondering where to buy an Xbox before Christmas.
The cheaper and less powerful Xbox Series S is easier to find in stock, but the more advanced Xbox Series X is in higher demand and sold out within minutes of launch. Knowing when and where your new console will be replenished next is key to snapping one up before they’re all used up.
That’s why we started our Xbox stock alerts live blog. If you are wondering where to buy an Xbox Series X in the UK before Christmas today, please do not hesitate to contact us. Below we will keep you informed of the latest live replenishment updates as they occur, as well as all the news on predicted replenishment dates, new games and accessories, and milestone events.

Razer Kaira for Xbox: Was € 149.99, now € 111.13, Amazon.de
This was recognized as the best wireless gaming headset for Xbox in our guide to the best gaming headsets. It’s a “crisp little headset that is comfortable to wear, decent sound, and a crisp, crisp microphone that belies its relatively low price,” our author noted. It’s currently reduced by 25 percent on Amazon too, so it’s a breeze.

Differences between Xbox Series X and Series S
There are a total of two next-gen Xboxes, the less powerful Xbox Series S and the more advanced Xbox Series X.
Both run the same next-gen games (as well as older Xbox games due to backward compatibility), but the cheaper Xbox Series S has less processing power under the hood. This means graphics won’t look as detailed and performance may be a little slower.
Because of this, the Xbox Series X is considered the “real” next-generation console here – but both consoles are great slot machines. The Xbox Series S has another great advantage that it is much easier to find in stock than the Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series S is £ 249 (Argos.co.uk) which looks positive compared to the Xbox Series X at £ 449.

Can you install a VPN on an Xbox?
When you stream Netflix on your Xbox, a virtual private network allows you to spoof your location and access movies and TV shows that are normally not available in your country.
You can’t install a VPN directly on an Xbox Series X, but you can install one on your laptop and route your console’s internet connection through it. You can also install some VPNs on routers to cover all of your devices at once.

Where is the Xbox Series S in stock?
While the fans are screaming to get their hands on the most of it progressive As a member of the Xbox family, the demand for the inferior Xbox S series is much lower and so the console can be found in stock practically everywhere.
The Xbox Series S is a brilliant gaming machine, however, and a viable alternative to the more expensive Xbox Series X. The console is backward compatible and runs the same next-gen Xbox games, but with some of the fancier graphics options. It doesn’t have a disc drive so you can only play downloaded games. The hard drive is also half the size.
There is now an official Xbox Series S + Fourteen days + Missile league Bundle on the shelves too, costs £ 24. You can find it at Very, Game, Amazon, and more.

Even Microsoft doesn’t find the Xbox in stock
You’d think Microsoft would be able to source enough Xbox Series X consoles to host the first Halo infinite Championship, but as Eurogamer reports, even the console manufacturer does not find the Xbox in stock.
Instead, Microsoft had to use Xbox Series X development kits – non-retail versions of the console that software developers use to create and test their games – to make sure every gamer has a console to compete with.
The problem, as always, is the bottleneck in the supply chain caused by the brief standstill of the entire global shipping infrastructure earlier this year.
