Xbox Series S: Where to buy in the UK

Xbox Series S is a lower-cost alternative to the Xbox Series X that and has been available since 10 November 2020. Here's a list of UK stores where you can buy the Series S now..

On 10 November, Microsoft launched not one, but two new Xbox consoles. In addition to the gaming powerhouse that is the Xbox Series X, customers also have the option to buy a lower-cost, all-digital variant dubbed the Xbox Series S.

While less powerful than its bigger brother, the Series S can still play all Xbox Series X games – just like this generation’s Xbox One S compared to the Xbox One X.

With a UK retail price of £249, the Xbox Series S is about £200 cheaper than the Xbox Series X at launch, making it a great choice for parents and budget-conscious gamers. Here are the sites you need to need to hit up for yours!

How much does the Xbox Series S cost?

As mentioned, the Xbox Series S costs £249 in the UK. We think this is a very attractive price point for what you’re getting.

By contrast, the Xbox Series X sells for a heftier £450.

Which Xbox should you buy?

If you want the most powerful games console that money can buy, the Xbox Series X is the version to get. If you’re buying for kids or trying to save money, the Series S is arguably a better option.

Brand-agnostic gamers may also want to consider the Sony PlayStation 5, which is expected to launch around the same time as Microsoft’s new consoles.
