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? In the UK, only a few retailers have stock of the Xbox Series S, while the Series X still remains incredibly hard to find. There's a real shortage in the US, too, with hardly anyone having stock that's not overpriced by third parties.

Australian gamers can currently pick up a Series S from JB Hi-Fi, Microsoft Australia or EB Games.

Sadly, these shortages won't be sorted before the end of the year.

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...
