If you are looking for an Xbox Series X in the UK, there is good news: it is currently in stock at Amazon UK for £449.99. The console has been available since launch day on some UK websites for a very limited time, so while things may seem steady, this drop could finish at any moment as the console is in high demand. Knowing how long this will be available on Amazon is unpredictable, so it would be wise to catch one as soon as possible.
Also, the Xbox series S, which is the less powerful version for this generation, is available on Amazon for £242.99 until stock last.
Why is it so difficult to find an Xbox Series X?
The reason behind the low offer is a shortage of semiconductors and other essential parts. However, factories and suppliers expect to return to their usual production in the future. Also, if we don't have enough problems with the lack of semiconductors and low production, there is another one that we have to add to the list, the so-called "scalpers". Using bots, scalpers buy large quantities of units as soon as the retailers drop consoles on their websites and then resell them on platforms such as eBay at inflated prices.
