If you’re hoping Xbox Series X’s stock shortages will end soon, don’t hold your breath
If you’re hoping that the Xbox Series X will be more readily available in the coming months, we’ve got some bad news for you. AMD CEO Lisa Su has predicted when the global chip shortage that has affected both PS5 and Xbox Series X stock levels will be over. And unfortunately, this scarcity of critical components is expected to continue into next year.
Su said: “We’ve always gone through cycles of ups and downs, where demand has exceeded supply, or vice versa. This time it’s different. It can take 18 to 24 months to put in a new plant, and in in some cases even longer than that. These investments may have started a year ago”.
The comments come as Xbox boss Phil Spencer also warned that the Xbox Series X’s stock shortages aren’t going to end anytime soon.
Spencer said: “I think it’s probably too isolated to just talk about it as a chip problem.
“When I think about it, what does it mean to get the parts needed to build a console today, and then get it into the markets that are in demand, there are multiple kinds of bottlenecks in that process. And I think unfortunately it’s going to be months and months with us, certainly until the end of this calendar year and into the next calendar year.”
While Xbox Series X additions are few and far between in the UK, there are still opportunities for gamers to buy the console.
The Xbox Series X is on sale today (Monday, October 11) in the official Microsoft Store, but according to Stock Informer, the stock sold out in minutes.
If you missed this quick restock, Smyths Toys says on its website that it expects another Xbox Series X restock sometime this month.
