We’re keeping tabs on all the retailers carrying the devices and have live tools to track inventory and prices for the premium Series X and more affordable Series S – and the best deals as they go live. .

Which stores sell the new Xbox?
Xbox Series X and S consoles are going fast, and while Series X is in stock right now, it might not be forever.
If you can’t find it in stock at one of our automated tools retailers, there are other stores to try. These are the top US retailers to check out, with all in stock at full price unless otherwise noted:
If you’re based in the UK, here are the retailers to look out for:
Naturally, the consoles are also available on eBay if you don’t mind taking a risk on a dodgy deal.
Buy Xbox Series X/S with monthly plans
If you can find it in stock, you’ll also be able to purchase the consoles on a monthly basis through the Xbox All Access program, which bundles the system with 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $24.99 / £20.99 per month with no upfront cost. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $14.99 / £10.99 a month if you pay for it separately, so it’s a pretty good deal indeed.
Both 4gadgets and Game offer the consoles through All Access, and both are in stock at the time of writing.
BT also announced that its broadband and mobile customers can purchase Xbox Series X (or Series S) through their MyBT account, while existing EE customers can spread the cost of new Xbox consoles by adding it to their mobile contract.
Buy a Series X via Xbox Insider
US Xbox One owners can apply to purchase a Series X or Series S directly from Microsoft through the new console purchase pilot, open to members of the Xbox Insider program.
If you’re not already an Xbox Insider, you can sign up by downloading the Xbox Insider Hub to your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.
Conveniently, this is also the app through which you can sign up for the console purchase pilot, although not all applicants are accepted.
Hopefully this pilot will be a success and Microsoft will roll out the system worldwide – but in the meantime, if you’re an Xbox One owner already, it makes perfect sense to join Xbox Insider now to be ready if and when the system reservation is growing.
