People have been struggling to get their hands on the latest Xbox Series X since it dropped last November, similarly to the rival PS5, which has also been plagued with stock issues

During testing, we found the newest console from Microsoft sits at the forefront of technology, with the premium design offering players faster gaming and better graphics than the previous models.

Why is it so hard to find the Xbox Series X?

As with most things, Covid-19 plays a huge part in why it’s been so hard to find a console, as manufacturing and shopping times have been stretched with many factories shutting halting production further. 

The lack of Graphics Cards (graphic processing units) has also stunted production, as well as the current semiconductor shortage, as both these tiny chips are vital for creating electronics like the Xbox Series X. 

While hunting down Microsoft’s newest release, also make sure that you’re always buying from reputable sources that you recognize and trust. Check verified purchasers comments and keep a wary eye on adverts that look suspicious and have an inflated price, it’s better to wait for the restock than risk accidentally playing into a scam. 

If you’re someone waiting to get their hands on the Xbox Series X but haven’t had any luck, you could look at investing in the cheaper Xbox Series S. The console plays all the same games, and is significantly cheaper. The only downside is that it’s not as powerful. Despite that we found it is still an ace product giving it 4.5/5 in our in-depth review.
