If you want to buy an Xbox Series X, look inside the tube: The new Microsoft console is out of stock in many places. In one current financial report says Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella that the new X / S models have got off to a strong start. No other Xbox console sold more often than the Xbox Series X / S at launch. Nevertheless: A fair comparison to other Xbox launches is not given, after all, Microsoft released two console models at the same time for the first time in November 2020. It is not known how many devices were eventually sold.

Nadella goes on to say that Microsoft's hardware sales have risen by 86 percent – the launch of the Xbox Series X / S represents the lion's share. CFO Amy Hood comments that the sales figures could have been higher if all interested parties could have been served with a console. The demand is still huge. Hood adds that availability may continue to be tight in the current quarter. Those interested should keep an eye on our bargain guide, which will inform you immediately when the Xbox Series X is available. (buy now )
