Want the best Xbox Series X price? Looking for Xbox Series X deals? We've got bad news - it's almost impossible to find stock for this next-gen console. It's been a bit of a mess, to be honest; most of us would forgo a 'deal' in exchange for being able to buy Xbox Series X in the first place. 

However, that doesn't mean you should give up hope. It is possible to find stock if you know where to look, and we're here to help with that. Besides manually searching for the best Xbox Series X price ourselves, our bargain-hunting software is updated every 30 minutes with any Xbox Series X deals that are available. Basically, it's very much a case of playing the waiting game. Don't expect Xbox Series X bundle deals with discounted games and accessories, though. There's not much incentive for retailers to knock prices off items selling as well as the next-gen consoles.

Just move fast when you see an Xbox Series X deal. These things will get snapped up fast, so you'll need to be very quick if you want to secure one for yourself. Make sure you've signed up for stock alerts, too; that'll give you a much needed heads-up as to when you need to be hitting that refresh button.

With that in mind, we're hoping some will turn up before the end of the year, and we'll be sure to call out any red-hot deals on this page if that happens. Feel free to bookmark us and check-in at your leisure.

The latest Xbox Series X deals

Regardless of the store you choose, you're going to be up against some fierce competition. More specifically, the next-gen console is getting snapped up within minutes whenever and wherever it becomes available. The Xbox Series X price you want to make sure you're not paying over is $499.99 in the US, £449.99 in the UK, and AU$749 in Australia. A positive reception overall (one shared by our Xbox Series X review) has built up hype even more.

No matter what happens, it'll be interesting to see how Microsoft does in the coming months. How will Series X sales compare to the cheaper Xbox Series S? Will it do better than its rival, the PS5? With the PS5 price being identical to the Series X, it may be a close-run race.

Either way, we win as gamers. For starters, the Xbox Series X price and PS5 cost won't break the bank as much as we'd feared. Secondly, the wealth of new games we're getting for both systems are looking fantastic. That includes the Viking-themed Assassin's Creed Valhalla, a brand-new Fable that returns the series to its roleplaying roots, and Obsidian's latest RPG, a first-person fantasy adventure called Avowed.

Xbox Series X deals and bundles - US

Xbox Series X | $499.99 at Amazon
As the biggest kid on the retailer block, Amazon is likely to get more stock in for Xbox Series X. But there's a downside. Because it's the go-to destination for most shoppers, competition will be fierce. That means you'll need to be quick, so keep refreshing the page every now and then and be ready to pounce if more consoles become available. 

We'd also recommend having a few alternatives up your sleeve. As it happens, we've got a couple below...

Xbox Series X | $499.99 at Microsoft
If in doubt, go straight to the source. In a turn of events that will surprise precisely no-one, Microsoft has been one of the most consistent when it comes to Xbox Series X stock. It's also likely to get more in before everyone else, so keep an eye out. 

Plus, we've spotted a few bundles via their official store. If you want an extra controller to go with your console, this is a good way to get it.


View Deal

Xbox Series X | $499.99 at Best Buy
As one of the biggest retailers in the country, Best Buy is a good bet for stock when it comes to the Xbox Series X. It's a shopping mainstay, and that means it's sure to get lots of the console in. 

What's more, it has the option of in-store pickups as well. That makes it a real contender, and one to consider if you don't think you'll be home for delivery of your next-gen console.

Xbox Series X | $499.99 at B&H Photo
While it's an unusual choice of retailer for Xbox Series X deals, that may actually work in your favor. You see, other shoppers might not think to look there, giving you an advantage when it comes to securing your own console.

That said, we don't expect B&H Photo to have much stock. That means you'll need to move fast to ensure you don't miss out.

Xbox Series X | $499.99 at Newegg
As one of the biggest retailers in the country, Best Buy is a good bet for stock when it comes to the Xbox Series X. It's a shopping mainstay, and that means it's sure to get lots of the console in. 

What's more, it has the option of in-store pickups as well. That makes it a real contender, and one to consider if you don't think you'll be home for delivery of your next-gen console.

Xbox Series X deals and bundles - UK

Xbox Series X | £449.99 at Amazon
Amazon is always a solid bet when it comes to console deals, and we don't expect it to disappoint with the Xbox Series X. Well, when it gets more stock, that is. The retail giant has been struggling to get more Xbox Series X in, so it's worth checking back every now and then to see if any offers are available. 

As ever, you'll need to be very quick to secure them - we suspect more than a few people will be camping on the listing page to see if pre-orders come back into stock.View Deal

Xbox Series X | £449.99 Microsoft
For the best chance of an Xbox Series X pre-order, we'd suggest Microsoft. It was the most reliable source of deals when pre-orders started, and stock lasted the longest there as well. 

With that in mind, we expect its online store to get more stock in ahead of the November 10 release date. After all, this is the company behind the machine. If anyone is going to get more consoles ahead of launch, surely it'll be Microsoft.View Deal

Xbox Series X | £449.99 Currys PC World
Currys is a good choice when it comes to Xbox Series X pre-orders. Thanks to its size and presence on the UK high street, it's likely to get more stock in before the November 10 launch date. 

That's in spite of the pandemic, too. It consistently offered deals throughout the Covid-19 lockdown on rare items like the Nintendo Switch, a console few other retailers seemed able to secure.View Deal

Xbox Series X | £449 at John Lewis
John Lewis may not be the first retailer you think of when it comes to Xbox Series X, but it's definitely one to keep in mind. It offers a two year warranty as standard on electronics, whereas most retailers only provide one. That makes it a real winner in our books, especially because new consoles can be so unpredictable. 

A word of caution, though. Surprisingly, the store wasn't well stocked with PS5s when pre-orders for that console started, so it might be missing some Xbox Series X deals too.View Deal

Xbox Series X | £449.99 at Argos
As another mainstay of the UK high street, Argos is going to be a retailer that's probably going to get more Xbox Series X stock on launch day and beyond.

However, as with every other retailer here, expect there to be fierce competition for new consoles hitting shelves. You'll need to be very quick to get your hands on any stock that comes in. View Deal

Bundle deals

Will some Xbox Series X bundles appear over the next few months? You can bet your bottom dollar on it. We don't know for sure what will be included, especially on the US side of things, but it's possible to make a few educated guesses. A certain little game called Assassin's Creed Valhalla is out now, for example, and it's closely followed by Cyberpunk 2077. They're strong candidates for bundle inclusion as a result.

Don't expect big discounts on software in launch bundles, though. We don't normally see price-drops in the early days of a console's life-cycle, so Xbox Series X deals are probably going to be a similar price to buying the console and games separately. If anything, it's more likely that retailers will slash prices on extras like Xbox Live Gold deals or a few free months of Xbox Game Pass.

Don't expect Halo Infinite to arrive alongside the console this fall either. The game has been delayed to 2021, so Master Chief's latest mission won't team up with any bundles or Xbox Series X deals this year. The same can be said of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 due to its vague release window.

Still, there are other ways to save money if cost is on your mind. More specifically, some games will cross the generational gap. For example, you can get your hands on a next-gen upgrade of games like Avengers for free if you already own a copy on Xbox One or PS4. That's an easy way to save on cash right away, and it's also something we hope to see more of as launch day draws closer. Especially because Microsoft is reportedly telling developers that Xbox Series X game upgrades have to be free.

For other possible bundle inclusions, take a look at our roundup of upcoming Xbox Series X games for a clearer picture.

What's the difference between Series X and Series S?

Should you pick up an Xbox Series X or a Series S? And just what is the difference, anyway? As we explained in our Xbox Series X vs Xbox Series S feature, it's a lot simpler than it seems. In a nutshell, both run the same next-gen games... but the Series S can't display them in super-sharp 4K resolution. What's more, it doesn't have a disc drive.

Why? It's all about accessibility. In short, the Xbox Series S is designed as an entry-level console or for those on a budget - it makes next-gen accessible for as many people as possible. That's why Microsoft has thrown some features overboard. The tech dedicated to making 4K possible isn't needed, so ditching that extra power lowers the overall cost. Similarly, removing a disc drive is likely to shunt the cost down even further.

All the same, we wouldn't say the Series S is the 'better' choice. Although the Series X is more expensive, it's arguably the full next-gen experience. If you have a 4K TV, games will look better with the Series X. There are no two ways about it. We have a suspicion they may load faster and run ever so slightly better, too.

In addition, the lack of a Series S disc drive isn't ideal. Digital games are almost always more expensive than physical ones in the long run, so it's actually not as good value for money as it seems. Especially because the console's internal storage is only 500GB. In fact, it's more like 350GB once you remove operating system demands. Considering how games like Call of Duty Warzone take up almost 200GB by themselves, it necessitates splashing out on an extra hard drive. That, or constantly deleting your old games to make room for new ones.

It's gonna usher in resolution and framerates we've never seen before.

The Series X is a superior choice if you want to future-proof yourself, too. We'll be in a far better position to enjoy the advanced games that'll come later in the generation with a Series X. Namely, its specs are to die for. Much like the 4K-ready Xbox One X before it, the Series X features eight Zen 2 CPU cores at 3.8GHz, a mighty 12 teraFLOPS of graphical power, a 1TB NVMe SSD, and 16GB of DDR6 RAM.

Wondering what all that means? For starters, it'll result in a smoother and more detailed experience than you've ever seen on a console before. Additionally, your games will have shockingly fast loading times. We're talking seconds instead of minutes, here. That's a huge deal.

What's more, the AMD Zen 2 computer processing unit and Navi chipset are apparently 10% better than the already powerful GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card. This will allow the new Xbox to pull off real-time ray tracing, a more realistic lighting system that's usually the preserve of high-end PCs. This is a machine that natively supports up to 8K resolution and 120 frames-per-second, too. According to Microsoft, the Series X's blisteringly fast RAM will also "usher in resolution and framerates we've never seen before."

Honestly, we're lucky that the Xbox Series X price isn't higher with such an impressive spec sheet - its tech puts the Series X on par with the very best gaming PCs.

How to save money on Xbox Series X

Alright, $500 / £450 / $749 is a hefty chunk of cash to spend on a next-gen console. But you don't necessarily have to pay it off in one go. Enter Microsoft's fancy Xbox All Access system. This is a payment plan, and it allows you to get an Xbox Series X for a monthly fee spread over two years. It'll set you back $34.99 per month in the US, £28.99p/m in the UK, and $46p/m in Australia. 

Interestingly, Xbox All Access doesn't just get you the console. It also offers 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate as well. Because Game Pass is a bit like Netflix for gaming (with well over 100 games and counting), that's a solid deal. Particularly due to the fact that new Xbox exclusive games like Halo will appear on Game Pass for free on the day of release. 

Thanks to this, Xbox All Access might be one of the more sensible options when it comes to buying an Xbox Series X. Indeed, it saves you money in the long run. Sure, you're only getting a small amount knocked off the overall price, but it's still cheaper than buying the console and two years of Game Pass separately.

However, be advised that you won't find Xbox All Access in many stores besides Microsoft. GameStop fills that role in the US, and Game or Smyths have the honor in the UK.

Accessories and games

As we laid out in our overview of PS5 vs Xbox Series X, a $499 / £500 price point for both consoles puts them on a level playing field. Xbox has one major advantage, though. The sting of the Xbox Series X price could well be softened by Microsoft putting so much stock into supporting Xbox Series X backward compatibility

Think about it. After paying for a console, you'd normally have to factor in a couple of launch games purpose-built to sell the system along with new controllers, subscriptions, and whatever extras the publishers are pushing. With Xbox Series X, all of your existing Xbox One peripherals and services are forwards compatible. That means all your achievements, progression, controllers, service subscriptions, Xbox One headsets, and other accessories move forward to Series X. We've already started rounding up the best Xbox Series X headsets too as many of the top audio-brands have confirmed which current models will work on the new console.

The console will also let you play existing games via both the optical disc drive and digital download, not to mention Game Pass. That allows you to save a couple of hundred dollars right off the bat. Particularly if you were holding off for next-gen versions of Cyberpunk, Assassin's Creed, or Avengers.
