Console hunters can head over to GAME UK or Amazon UK to buy an Xbox Series S console today, March 20.
GAME is offering a number of different bundles, including combos with additional video games and controllers.
The Xbox Series S can also be bought through Xbox All Access, with other options available for deliveries, with the official site adding:
“Our Warehouse team are working hard to process all orders whilst operating in line with strict guidance on social distancing.
Another option is Amazon UK, which is offering a more streamlined bundle collection over GAME.
The current options are limited to just consoles, although there are discounts available on Xbox Game Pass.
It should also be noted that there are major differences between buying an Xbox Series X and an Xbox Series S console.
This includes storage space and graphical options, with Microsoft confirming: “Xbox Series S delivers the same next-generation speed and performance that define Xbox Series X. It is similar in CPU and has the identical I/O performance as Xbox Series X, making it easier for developers to deliver the same great performance while rendering at a lower resolution.
“In addition, Xbox Series S includes 512GB of custom SSD storage and is powered by the Xbox Velocity Architecture, delivering more than 40x the I/O bandwidth of an Xbox One resulting in faster loading times, steadier frame rates and Quick Resume for multiple titles.
“The primary difference between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S is in resolution. Through talking to our customers, we found that many of our fans prioritize framerate over resolution, so we wanted to build a console that didn’t require a 4K TV.
And the news is that if you were waiting for the chance to buy an Xbox Series X console, something should be coming this week.
At least one more Xbox Series S stock update is expected before the end of the month, with Argos, GAME and Smyths the most likely.
The Microsoft Store may also be another place to check before April, as this has also received a number of updates in March.
As always, the Xbox Series X will be restocked regularly but will not include enough to keep up with total demand.
This is expected to happen during 2021, but not until later in the year, possibly during Summer.
