Xbox Series X stock news from Microsoft
Xbox Series X shares are hard to come by in the UK right now, and Microsoft has confirmed it won’t get any easier in the coming months.
While things aren’t expected to get more complicated, Xbox’s Phil Spencer has confirmed that the delivery issues will continue.
This means companies like Microsoft will find it impossible to keep up with consumer demand in 2021, and it looks like the problems will continue into 2022.
There are plenty of reasons not to buy an Xbox Series X right now, and it’s not just Microsoft that has problems.
Sony can’t keep up with the demand for its PS5 console and many other hardware manufacturers are facing the same issues.
Spencer delivered the latest Xbox Series X stock update this week, telling: the cover:
“I think it’s probably too isolated to talk about it as just a chip problem,” Spencer said. “When I think about it, what does it mean to get the parts needed to build a console today, and then get it to the markets that are in demand, there are multiple kinds of bottlenecks in that process.
“And I think unfortunately it will stay with us for months and months, certainly until the end of this calendar year and into the next calendar year.
“The most disappointing thing is just the disappointment of the fans,” Spencer admitted. “People really want this new generation of consoles – they’re good consoles, both from us and from the other platform holders – and they want the new functionality.
“We’re working hard to bring them to market, but it’s going to be a challenge that we’ll be working on for quite some time.”
The UK is certainly one of those bottlenecks and it looks like next-gen consoles will remain hard to come by for the next year.
There’s no word on which retailer will be next to restock the Xbox Series X, but there’s some hope Amazon UK will be one of them.
This is based on the news that Amazon in Spain has regularly restocked the console online this week and it could be the UK next time.
Knowing when an Xbox Series X replenishment is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles their shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to buy a PS5 or Xbox console from leading UK retailers:
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and not being able to complete purchases when there is a lot of site traffic. Inventory trackers recommend using the Argos mobile app and keeping an eye on local store listings.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer offering the most regular stock updates for PS5 and Xbox consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. The next stock update for the PS5 and Xbox Series X is expected in October.
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM: Amazon UK works better under tension, but still has a few kinks worth noting. Creating an account with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wish list before checking out. More Xbox Series X consoles could arrive in October, but nothing has been officially confirmed.
