The best Xbox Series X deals in 2022: where is it in stock?

In fact, Microsoft is the only retailer that lets you add your Xbox Game Pass subscription right into the basket so you can start playing online immediately once it arrives in the post. Pick up the Series X on its own for £449 directly from the site, but if you want to bundle it with a game or additional gear Microsoft will recommend you to head over to other retailers for purchase. 

The Series S is also available to buy on its own for £249.99 if you want to go down that route or check out its own recommendations for where to pick up elsewhere. 

Oh, and you can buy both consoles on a monthly contract, which should make it a significantly more affordable purchase if money is tight. 

Amazon Xbox Series X stock

Thankfully for Xbox fans, both of Microsoft’s consoles are more readily available online, so you can actually find both the Series S and Series X on Amazon. Both will be the standard RRP and come with a controller as standard (though older Xbox controllers will still work with these newer devices). 

There aren’t any dedicated bundles right now but, as it’s Amazon, you can just buy games, controllers and peripherals at once, and if you’re signed up to Amazon Prime, you can get it all together on next-day delivery. If you’re still one of those people who doesn’t have Prime, you can get a free month when you sign up with a new email, or just get it for £7.99 a month and you’ll easily make that back in delivery fees.

Game Xbox Series X stock

If you like getting cash back or discounts on your gaming gear then Game is a good option to make one of these bigger purchases. Both consoles are available to buy, either standalone or as a bundle with games, carry cases and Xbox All Access Game Pass, and any money you spend will accrue points to knock off a few quid on anything else you buy. 

Most of the bundles are a console with a free t-shirt or cap, and while we love adding some stuff to our wardrobe, it’s the games we’re concerned with here. So you can pick up the Series S with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, or the Series X with either FIFA 22 or Forza Horizon 5 for around £500. 

Very Xbox Series X stock

Frustratingly, if you head over to Very’s site right now it will merrily announce the Series X is in stock, but dig a little further and you’ll see that’s actually not true. Neither console is available, although there are plenty of offers on games like Call of Duty: Vanguard, FIFA 22 and Forza Horizon 5, as well as gaming chairs, webcams, and controllers. 

John Lewis Xbox Series X stock

The Xbox Series S certainly isn’t the most powerful of the current generation of consoles, but is worth paying attention to for three simple reasons. 1) It’s a very affordable entry into Game Pass, Microsoft’s absolutely brilliant game subscription service which will add Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite before Christmas. 2) Games still look great, even if they’re not running in 4K on the machine. 3) You can actually buy one. Crucial, that last one. From £249. At amazon.co.uk
