Xbox Warns to Expect Series X/S Shortages For A While - IGN Now

Microsoft's CFO has said to expect shortages of the Xbox Series X and Series S well into 2021. But, that's kind of a good thing as it means sales are robust enough for demand to outpace supply.

I’ve been trying since October to buy both PS5 and XSX with 0 luck. Then I won a Series X from Taco Bell. I had more luck with a bean burrito and a Baja Blast than with a credit card. Still can’t get a PS5 though. I need to hit up Burger King for that I suppose. Probably have a better chance there than just buying one. Next gen consoles are going to give me type 2 diabetes

Both companies should allow the purchase of next gen on an established online gamer tag (1 year of service)within their online store. This way only the people buying your games are granted the access to new system. Happy consumers spend a lot more trust me I do.

And PlayStation lost my business when they said sign up for an email when you can preorder and then was like naaa F it - I like to have all systems so I don’t miss out on any games but this generation I will be skipping PS5.

This is funny . Reminds me of a stepchild . Nobody is talking about xbox shortages . Mainly ps5 is making headlines about shortages . So microsoft took it upon them selves to say hey we are having console shortages too . In so many words . Lol that's funny

I have a 1X with an SSD and a PC with a 2080. I’m in no hurry. I’m planning on holding off till next summer just cause they have no exclusives anyway.

Be mad at retailers for not combating resellers, it is not Sony or Microsoft's fault that scalpers are ruining this. The manufacturer sells to the retailer and the retailer sells to you, unless you buy them direct, that is how it works.

When called my retailers in west Michigan the tech departments for multiple stores have pre recorded message about the availability of the Xbox Series X. They are shipping them out as fast as they can make them the demand is unprecedented. Im a massive halo and gears fan and I’m happily surprised to see the Series X do this well with how big of a failure the Xbox one was imo.
All of the installments of gears and halo on the Xbox one were also lacking.

Unacceptable!!! How do you allow your systems to sell out time after time after time. Why don’t you have super mass production for these systems when the supply is so high!!!’ Doesn’t make sense and in all honesty is just disgusting

Why don't retailers create waiting lists and let you buy it when your name comes up or say that it's not currently in stock but let people go ahead and buy it, put your purchase in a queue and when your the next in line, ship it out. People might not get it immediately but at least they would get it sooner or later.

I don't believe it. Both xbox consoles are very different from each other so there's literally 2 (different) skus to choose from. I think Microsoft is just pulling a Nintendo and creating the illusion. They said the same thing the last two times pre orders went up then the week after there was another order date.

This news is only for customers run to the stores before the console disappear from the stores. That is basic market strategy.

How about confiscating the merchandise that the scalpers took! It should be illegal
All For One&One For All
All For One&One For All - 9 dager siden
It IS illegal, that’s what’s hilarious about this; Buying a product, and then reselling that product at higher then market price, violates so many copyright laws it’s hilarious. Sony and Microsoft could honestly take any scalper to court for this and they’d have zero ability to fight back because they’re dirt poor compared to a gaming company

Let's face it, This issue isn't just Series S or X.
It's PS5 Disc, PS5 Digital, RTX 3070, 3080, 3090 and now AMD has said to expect shortages too.

I've decided atm it's not worth the stress going on a goose chase trying to track one of these down. Sounds like it might be best to wait another 3-4 months with the new consoles.
