Xbox Series X will be in short supply until at least June, Microsoft admits

Recommended Posts

Well more bad news, but if you were hoping to get an Xbox Series X anytime soon, you may not be able to until June. The reason why? A GPU shortage. It seems as if that's the issue for everyone currently, even on PlayStations side, and many pc manufacturers. I guess this past year and this year, there's been a lot of pc item shortages. So it could be even longer for all we know. 😞

PlayStation and other companies have said the same quite recently so it's an overall shortage. One of the main reasons is the shortage of chips that these devices use and the Covid regulations make it difficult for shipment and other procedures to occur.

Honestly, the amount of XBOX drops I've seen being done lately (here in the UK at least anyway) I wouldn't have been able to tell. The PS5 has been the harder one to get in my experience, took me about 5 weeks of trying to get one, I know people who have been trying to get one for months! I really feel like they shouldn't have released the consoles though until they had some idea around continuous stock but It's all fed into the hype and Sony/Microsoft will love that I suppose!

The fact that it's 2021 and we can't just have a backorder system on Microsoft.com is insane.

You can go buy a phone or laptop from most other major companies out there, and they will give you an estimate about when you'll receive it. Sometimes it's week's or months out if there is demand. But you can still place your order and wait your turn.

I got so lucky and got mine when there was hardly any of them in stock. Surprised at the fact that stock came in and then it would go out almost immediately. I added it to my cart and stock went out. I couldn't believe that. But I managed to click buy right as stock came in on microsofts site and got lucky. Microsofts main site was the only place I could get one and it's still the best place to try.

Starting to see this console in stock, its either getting the needed parts in to be made or people aren't on board buying it like the PS5. 

It's actually supply levels that have gone up since mid 2021 so we're starting to see more PS5s available...
