Unfortunately, the console drought will last until at least early 2023. Sony and Microsoft are plagued by chip shortages and other issues. Getting a new game console has never been more difficult than it is today. So here are some practical tips to always be able to brand an Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series X and S were released on November 10, 2020. As stiff as the Xbox One launch in 2013, Microsoft’s consoles are now doing very well. The Xbox Series X in particular is hard to find and is barely in stock. It’s no secret that the Xbox Series X and S are easier to get than the PlayStation 5, but here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
As soon as we hear that there are Xboxes in stock somewhere, we’ll immediately report it on Twitter. With just a few clicks, you’ll have an Xbox Series X in your shopping cart. It can also be useful to enable notifications, so that you are aware of a new drop as soon as possible.
It is always useful to stay connected to the store site. You can order as soon as possible when you get a signal. If you still need to sign in and fill out payment information, chances are good that the Xbox will be claimed by someone else.
Don’t immediately give up if the website says there is no stock. Sometimes after a few refreshments you suddenly have the option to buy one. So don’t immediately give in to the bad news.
Sometimes stores get inventory that is only physically available in the store. You cannot view this stock online. So it may be beneficial to visit some physical stores and just ask them if they have the Xbox in stock. Especially in small towns and villages, sometimes you have a chance to be successful.
It might be tempting to buy an Xbox from a random guy for a little more money. In the end, you get ripped off. Certainly the Xbox is with a little effort to do well. By buying a scalper, you are only shooting yourself in the foot and in your bank account.
If you really don’t have any patience, then buying an Xbox Series S is also an option. Okay, the S series is definitely not an X series. Microsoft’s budget console is less powerful, doesn’t have a disk drive, and has less memory. For the less fanatic gamer, the S Series offers a great next-gen experience. The console plays the same games but in a lower resolution and sometimes a lower frame rate. If you don’t appreciate it, this is the way to go. And that too for 200 euros less. The biggest advantage is that it is easy to go everywhere. Want all the next generation bells and whistles? So you’d better go for the X series.
