The Xbox Series X and S have been flashing in and out of stock for quite a while now. As supply grows, so do your chances of grabbing a great deal. Here's where can you find the best new Xbox Series X deals...

The latest? The Series X remains incredibly hard to find, especially in the US – Walmart did restock before Christmas, followed by Target, but both immediately sold out. In the UK you can buy one from Currys, but only as part of a bundle, which makes it more expensive. Or you can pick one up at 4Gadgets as part of Xbox All Access, which includes 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate and charges £28.99 a month.

The Series S is much easier to find in both the UK and US.

Australian gamers can currently pick up a Series S from EB Games.

Sadly, these shortages won't be sorted before the end of the year. Even Apple execs are turning to Twitter bots to try and find a Series X console. 

There have been plenty of stock drops this year so far, but stock never lasts long. The good news? Stock drops are frequent, if not regular.

Of course, you could turn to auction sites like eBay and StockX but you might have to pay over the odds. For reference, the top-tier Xbox Series X console, which supports 4K gaming, carries a recommended retail price of £449 ($499, AU$749). The all-digital Series S, which doesn't have a disc drive, debuted at £249 ($299, AU$499).

Right, here are today's best Xbox Series X deals, plus the latest availability info...
