Console shortages likely to continue in 2022 according to Phil Spencer (Xbox)

We are not yet at the end

You found it was complicated to get new generation consoles in 2020/2021? Well this is not finished according to the Xbox boss.

In an interview with The Wrap, Phil Spencer explained that in addition to the flea shortage necessary for the manufacture of Xbox Series X / S are added other items, also hard to find in these times of pandemic.

I think talking about a flea problem is probably too narrow. When I think about what it means to get my hands on the pieces needed to make a console today and then bring it to the markets where the demand is, there are several types of pinch points in the game. process. And I regret that it will stick to our skin for months and months, sure until the end of this calendar year and into the next.

What is most disappointing is simply the disappointment of the fans. People really want this new generation of consoles – they’re good consoles, both ours and the competition – and they want the new features. We are working hard to bring them to the market, but it’s going to be a challenge that we’re going to have to fight for for quite a while.

Of course, these statements also apply to the PS5, which also continue to face the same shortages. Conclusion: we will have to be very patient for the situation to regulate itself, as with everything related to the pandemic.
