There may be an Xbox Series X Console Shortage until June

Looking to buy an Xbox Series X console as soon as possible? Well, you may have a problem if you are trying to get your hands on one and you may have missed out. It’s one word that nobody wants to hear and it’s a shortage.

According to a statement in an interview from The New York Times by Mike Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s investor relations, the Series X will probably remain supply-constrained until June 2021. The Series X has proven to be in extremely high demand, with every console sold to the market in Q4, 2020. Microsoft has even asked the company AMD for help solving the issue by hinting that they need AMD to produce more of the GPU and CPU chips that are used in the series X.

The brand new Xbox Series X released back on November 10th, 2020 for the price of $499.99 and comes with a ton of next-generation powerful features such as:

  • 4k Gaming
  • Up to 120 FPS
  • 8k HDR Dynamic Range
  • XBOX Velocity Architecture
  • Original Classics like Halo: Combat Evolved play best on the Series X
  • Quick Resume: Switch Between Multiple Games

There have been many reviews out on the new console and overall the response has been positive. In general, the positive aspects include high performance with backward compatibility for old times, a quick resume feature, and 120Hz modes really smooth gameplay.

What has been most criticized is the fact that the stand is non-removable and looks really strange when you stand it up horizontally. Also, the expandable storage options tend to be quite expensive for the average gamer. A big issue is that there have not really been any AAA launch games yet but there is a bright future ahead.

What games are coming to Xbox Series X?

There are a ton of new games releasing on Xbox Series X like MLB the Show 21 on April 20th, 2021 along with a slew of popular franchises including:

  • Resident Evil Village – May 7th, 2021 by Capcom
  • Outriders – April 1st, 2021 by Square Enix
  • Back 4 Blood – June 22nd, 2021 by Turtle Rock
  • The Gunk – September 2021 by Thunderful Publishing
  • Rainbow Six Quarantine – Unknown 2021 by Ubisoft Montreal
  • Senua’s Hellblade 2 – Unknown by Ninja Theory
  • Far Cry 6 – Unknown 2021 by Ubisoft 
  • Halo Infinite – Unknown 2021 by 343 Industries & Microsoft
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 – Unknown 2021 by Paradox Interactive

We will have to wait and see what happens with the shortage. Microsoft and AMD are poised to make a lot more money if the trend keeps up!
