Microsoft Working to Supply the Xbox Series X/S Demand
Microsoft has officially made a statement regarding the shortage of Xbox Series X/S consoles in the market since it released over a week ago. Microsoft is apparently working tirelessly to keep retail partners stocked up with the new Xbox consoles, but it’s likely that COVID-19 supply issues are slowing things down for Microsoft currently. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings the Game Pass lineup from the current generation of Xbox to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at no additional cost to the $15 per month subscription fee.
“There has been overwhelming global demand from our fans for the next generation of Xbox, and we are working tirelessly with our retail partners to replenish Xbox hardware as quickly as possible,” said the official Xbox Support Twitter account. “Please check in with your local retailers directly for more details on availability.” Considering the next-generation consoles released so recently, it’s no big surprise that both Xbox and PlayStation are struggling to keep up with the demand, but we hope that everyone who wants an Xbox Series X/S for the Holidays is able to get one.
While many Twitter users took to the comments of this official statement from Xbox to troll, we can appreciate them making a statement rather than staying silent as to how long gamers will have to wait before their local retail outlets are resupplied. Many supply chains are being impacted by COVID-19 and it’s unquestionably an interesting time to release new consoles, but we’re looking forward to seeing store shelves stocked with Xbox Series X/S consoles.
