Xbox Series X reportedly getting 500GB storage expansion card
The Xbox series X is almost one year old, but since launching has been consistently sold out everywhere in the UK. A worldwide shortage of microprocessors, combined with collapsing supply chains at home and abroad, has slowed production of Microsoft’s newest Xbox consistently.
The cheaper and less powerful Xbox series S is easier to find online, but the more advanced Xbox series X sells out in minutes or even seconds of new stock appearing. Knowing where the Xbox will be restocked next is key to grab one in time.
If you’re wondering where to buy an Xbox series X in the UK today, our stock tracking liveblog is here to help. We’ll update you with the latest stock drops as soon as they happen, as well as any news on predicted restock dates, new games and accessories and milestone events.

When will Currys restock the Xbox series X?
Currys PC World is another retailer we believe may restock the Xbox series X today or tomorrow.
Previous restocking patterns suggest that Currys has restocked the Xbox series X three times in August, but only one in September so far.
When a drop happens, the main Currys site usually gets hammered with traffic, so you may have a better chance at getting through and complete your purchase using the retailer’s app.

Are you on the hunt for a PS5 as well?
While we wait for more Xbox series X stock to drop, this is your daily reminder that we also have a PS5 liveblog to track restocks of Sony’s latest console.
Generally speaking, the Xbox series X has been harder to get than the PS5, with fewer restocks in the UK in the last could months.

When will Smyths restock the Xbox series X?
Smyths Toys does not currently have any Xbox series X stock available, but the retailer has been restocking the console slowly but steadily at various branches around the country.
If you’re passing by a store, it’s worth enquiring about the Xbox availability, as Smyths often restocks in-store, even if the console is not available online.
The initiative allows customers to avoid paying full price for the console, instead letting you pay in monthly instalments over two years.

When will Game restock the Xbox series X?
Game was undoubtedly one of the most prolific retailers of the past few months as far as Xbox series X restocks are concerns.
The video games retailer restocked the Xbox series X six times in August alone, as well as twice in September already.
Will Game will restock the Xbox series X once again before the month is over?
