UK Retailer Currys to Have Xbox Series X|S in Stock Tomorrow - News

UK retailer Currys has sent out an email to customers saying they will have Xbox Series X and S consoles available in stock tomorrow, November 24 at 1:00 pm GMT. The next-generation consoles will be available at this link starting at 1:00 pm GMT.

The Xbox Series X and S consoles launched worldwide on November 10 and quickly sold out in the majority of the 40 countries it launched in. 

In the US, Walmart will have limited stock of the Xbox Series X and S, and PlayStation 5 online on Wednesday, November 25 at 7:00 pm ET / 4:00 pm PT. 

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S sold between them an estimated 1.2 million to 1.4 million units worldwide in its first 24 hours, according to VGChartz estimates.

Xbox chief financial officer Tim Stuart expects the Xbox Series X and S to be in short supply through the first quarter of 2021 with more of the demand being met in the following quarter. 

"I think we'll continue to see supply shortages as we head into the post-holiday quarter, so Microsoft's Q3, calendar Q1," Stuart said at the time. "And then when we get to Q4, all of our supply chain continuing to go full speed heading into kind of the pre-summer months.

"And that's where I start to -- I expect to see a little bit of the demand -- the supply profile, meeting the demand profile. You'll be outside of a holiday window. We'll have supply cranking over the next, what, 4, 5, 6 months. And that's when I expect to see really that demand profile start to be met, which will be really, really great.

"And really, what that's going to do is, once we get into that world of a great high end, call it, a great high-powered console, plus that lower-end SKU for value, I think we're going to start to see some real velocity kick up, which I'm really excited to see."

The Xbox Series X and S had a global launch across 40 countries, with Xbox All-Access launching in 12 countries.

I will try, but most likely the scalpers and their robots will get the majority of the units

Ended up being a bit of a tease. I couldn’t even see the listing until after they had sold out.

Queues probably won't be near the PS5 one, but close enough to crash the site.

I think the Xbox is more popular in the UK than Playstation.
