Hunting down where to buy the Xbox Series X in the U.K. this week looks to be tricky as restocks are few and far between. 

If you're happy to make do with the Xbox Series S, then it's available at Currys and Box. Otherwise, it's not looking promising for people who've yet to find Microsoft's flagship console in stock. 

Do check out the retailers we've listed below as well as some of our picks for the alternative retailers that could have Xbox Series X stock. You never know if you might strike it lucky and stumble across a quiet Xbox Series X restock. 

Where to buy Xbox Series X UK: Latest updates

As of July 29, there's no Xbox Series X restock available in the U.K. Amazon had a restock a the start of the day, but it sold out very quickly. And it's not looking likely there'll be much more of a restock before next week. 

Do bear in mind that you can get an Xbox Series X for a monthly subscription fee of £28.99 as part of the Xbox All Access programme. That gets you the console and access to Xbox Game pass for a regular fee over the span of 24 months. The Xbox Series X can be had for £20.99 for the same 24-month subscription plan. But these deals are still hampered by a lack of console stock.

Despite our best efforts to bring you timely updates, Tom's Guide can't guarantee you'll be able to purchase Microsoft's flagship console.

Where to buy Xbox Series X UK: Avoid the scalpers

One of the reasons for Xbox Series X and Series S stock shortages is down to scalpers snapping up large amounts of next-gen consoles in one big swoop and then selling them on for extortionate prices. 

VGC reported that a now infamous PS5 scalper group going by the name of CrepChiefNotify managed to snap up 1,000 Xbox Series X consoles as soon as they became available at U.K. retailer Very. And the group boasted about it online; there are select words to describe such people but they aren’t suitable for publication. But Very has the last laugh by Very cancelling 1,000 Xbox Series X pre-orders

As frustrating as it can be to find an Xbox Seires X or Series S, we suggest you avoid buying a console from these scalpers. Paying massively over the odds for a console that doesn't have a huge range of new Xbox Seires X games isn’t a shrewd move in our opinion. If you can hold out until 2021 Microsoft should have more Xbox Series X units to ship, as well as the promise of more exclusive games for the console, making it a much better time to get one.
