Here's a rare deal: if you're still struggling to find an Xbox Series X or PS5 in Australia, you might want to consider an Xbox Series S in the meantime. Why? Because it's currently on sale for a cool AU$424.15 on eBay, via the Big W Online store. That's down from the usual AU$499 RRP, which we haven't seen budge since launch.

Some caveats: you'll need to be an eBay Plus member, but you can always sign up for a free trial. You'll also need to use the code PLUSFL15 at checkout.

The Xbox Series S has been widely available in Australia for several months now, unlike the more powerful new-gen consoles. And yeah, it is underpowered compared to its bigger siblings, but it's still a brilliant piece of kit. In our Xbox Series S review we admired its small form factor and impressive backwards compatibility.

Still, it's a compromise. If you're still on the look out for the heftier new-gen boxes, you can check out our guides on where to buy a PS5 in Australia, or where to buy an Xbox Series X.
