Xbox Series X|S Pre-Orders: Where To Buy The New Consoles

Xbox Series X|S Retail Price – How Much Do They Cost?

The official price for the Xbox Series X is £449/$499, while the Xbox Series S sells for £249/$299. If a retailer is listing a standalone console for more than that, you may wish to wait for more stock to appear elsewhere.

Of course, Microsoft's Xbox All Access scheme offers another way to pay – more details can be found below.

What Is Xbox All Access?

Xbox All Access allows you to pick up a brand new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S by paying monthly, with no upfront cost. The package also includes 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, meaning you'll have two years' worth of new games to play without putting in any extra effort.

The scheme costs £29/$35 a month for an Xbox Series X console, or £21/$25 for an Xbox Series S. If you can't afford to drop the full amount day one but know you're happy to be subscribed to Game Pass for 24 months, it's certainly an interesting option.
