Those struggling to score an Xbox Series X in the UK flocked to Amazon today as the Microsoft console was finally back in stock.
Prior to today's Xbox Series X restock, the online retail giant last restocked on 4th Jan 2022. The latest Xbox Series X drop went live just after 8am and remained in stock until late afternoon/ early evening. This was the longest time Microsoft's next gen console had stayed in stock at Amazon - probably since launch. For those who have been patiently waiting for a console, it was an incredible opportunity to finally get one.
An Xbox Series X costs £449.99 - that includes the Xbox Series X console and the new Xbox Wireless controller. Aside from all the cables and perhaps a free trial for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, no other extras will be included. Here's the Digital Foundry review should you want to see how the console performs.
An Xbox Series X bundle was also in stock at Amazon today that included the console and a copy of Back 4 Blood for £473.08. Buying the game and console separately on Amazon totaled to the same price, and the game is available on GamePass- but for those planning to pick up a physical copy of the zombie-killing FPS anyway, this bundle was worth purchasing out of ease.
On this occasion, customers didn't need to be a Prime member to be able to place an order.
If you were able to snag the Xbox Series X before it went out of stock on Amazon today, then huge congrats! You're probably going to need some new games or a Game Pass subscription with your new console, along with some extra accessories like a second Xbox controller or a controller charging dock. You can find the best offers on all of these and more over on our dedicated Xbox deals page.
