Update (7:30PM): After briefly offering stock, both Currys and Game have now confirmed their Series X supplies have been exhausted. The next opportunity will come via a limited amount of stock at Argos, available "EARLY tomorrow morning" (emphasis theirs), on Wednesday the 25th of November. Follow @dealsfoundry for more stock updates as we have them. Original article continues:
Trying to find an Xbox Series X? Game currently have pre-orders of the console in a range of bundle deals, making this a good chance to pick up a Series X and whatever games, accessories or merchandise you planned to buy in one fell swoop.
The Xbox Series X is also available to purchase via Xbox All Access, which hasn't been available since the chaotic initial per-order period in September. (All Access bundles the console with 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate for £28.99 a month, making it slightly cheaper than buying both upfront.)
Most bundles seem to be shipping by December 24th when you choose 'Priority Insured' delivery, so you won't have a games console immediately but at least you won't have to worry about trying to find one in the run-up to Christmas!
Here are the links you'll need:
You'll likely need to go through a short queue to place an order (for us, it was around 12 minutes but I've seen reports of a four-minute queue or no queue at all).
At the time of writing, the cheapest price we've seen the Xbox Series X is in a bundle with a t-shirt and hat for £480. You can also pick up the Series X with the clothing and three months of Game Pass Ultimate for £500. However, if these two options are exhausted, there are many more bundles available here.
While the Xbox Series S has been relatively easy to get ahold of, it's worth mentioning that Game also have stock of the cheaper Xbox console, both by itself and available in a range of bundles. For example, you can get the Series S with a hat and t-shirt for £280.
Assuming that all of the Series X stock at Game sells through, the next opportunity we expect to order the Series X will be at Currys PC World, who emailed customers to say that they'll offer Series X and Series S sales at 1PM later today (November 24th).

Digital Foundry specialises in technical analysis of gaming hardware and software, using state-of-the-art capture systems and bespoke software to show you how well games and hardware run, visualising precisely what they're capable of. In order to show you what 4K gaming actually looks like we needed to build our own platform to supply high quality 4K video for offline viewing. So we did.
Our videos are multi-gigabyte files and we've chosen a high quality provider to ensure fast downloads. However, that bandwidth isn't free and so we charge a small monthly subscription fee of $5. We think it's a small price to pay for unlimited access to top-tier quality encodes of our content. Thank you.Support Digital Foundry
