(Pocket-lint) - The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have been out for almost a year now, but stock is still extremely hard to come by in both the US and UK.

This is down to a number of electronic component shortages affecting all manner of goods, not to mention the general demand and popularity of the latest consoles.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently indicated that the supply issues would continue to prove to challenge at least for the rest of the year, and into the early months of 2022, as well.

So, that's where this guide comes in. Below, we'll be showing you the best prices through our live widget, as well as providing quick links to the most popular retailers. Enough talk, let's find you a Series X or Series S.

Xbox Series S live prices and availability

This is the console for those who don't want to splash out on the Series X but do still want to upgrade from their current console and leap to the next generation. It likely won't offer the staying power of the Series X as the generation's games develop, but it's an extraordinary pickup for the next few years, at least.
