Xbox Series X Stock Updates

It is tough to get an Xbox Series X at the moment. Smyths has changed their listings from "Expected April" to "Expected May" and this pretty much sums up the scene as a whole. There isn't a lot of next-gen console stock out there.

You might get lucky at a local, in-person retailer, but online it's pretty bare.

Looking at StockInformer confirms our suspicions. As it stands, there isn't any Xbox Series X stock available at any major UK retailer. What's worse is that it doesn't look like there's going to be any more for a little while yet.

Alternatively, you can always look to CEX and eBay for second-hand Xbox Series X consoles. These will be a bit more expensive, and you'll need to be careful on eBay, but they are the only two places that seem to have consistent stock.

We recommend waiting to get a new console for the RRP, but CEX and eBay are there if you can't.

Sea of Thieves Season 2

Let the swashbuckling continue! Sea of Thieves Season 2 is right around the corner and we've got new information about when the Server Downtime is being planned to implement the update.

Sea of Thieves is going to be offline from 05:00 EST / 10:00 BST on April 15th until around 07:00 EST / 12:00 BST.

This isn't all, though, you can also get your hands on the ROFL Emote before the Server Downtime tomorrow for free from the Pirate Emporium.

A new Resident Evil Showcase is being aired tomorrow which should showcase more gameplay footage for the upcoming horror title. Will we get an Xbox exclusive demo, though? We're not so sure... We can hope, though.
