Another day, another attempt to try and find a next-gen console. Today, we're here with all the stock updates you need and all of the Xbox news for April 8.

GTA V Comes to Game Pass

Arguably the biggest piece of Xbox news for April 8 is that GTA V returns to Xbox Game Pass today.


It was available as part of the service a couple of years ago, before being removed, but it is back.

This comes as we continue to look forward to the next-gen version of the game.

Anyone who subscribes to the service should be able to download the game today for no extra charge.

Kojima's Next Game Coming to Xbox

According to VentureBeat this morning, the legendary producer is in talks with Xbox to have his next game launch on their system.

"But the biggest piece of evidence I have that Abandoned is not a Kojima joint is that Kojima is in talks with Microsoft about publishing his next game, according to a source familiar with the matter."

I'm sure we'll here more about this soon.


Series X | S Stock Updates

Below, we'll run you through all of the stock updates for the Xbox Series X and S in both the US and UK.


At the time of writing, the Xbox Series S is in stock at Currys and has been available for a little while now.

Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be any other Xbox stock available in the UK today.

The console (the Series X in particular) is proving to be even harder to get your hands on than the PS5 at the moment.



After Antonline had some stock yesterday, today is looking very quiet for Series X and Series S stock in the US.

As we said, getting a Series X is proving to be very difficult.

Since we're still pretty early in the US day, we'll update you later today as and when any new stock details surface.

Games Releasing Today

Aside from GTA V coming to Game Pass, a couple of other titles are coming to Xbox today. You can check them out below.
