Xbox Director Apologized for Insufficient New Gen Consoles In the Store

Microsoft executive vice president Phil Spencer gave a speech at GlitchCon, which he attended. In his speech, he apologized for the lack of console in the stores. Spencer also stated that they are working hard to meet the demand. Microsoft‘s Xbox Series X and Series S consoles were recently released. It seems that the console’s sales are going pretty well too. In fact, Microsoft executive vice president Phil Spencer apologized for the shortcomings caused by the depletion of consoles.

We need more consoles,” Spencer added at GlitchCon. Spencer said the most common complaint he has been receiving recently is that it is very difficult to buy the console. Spencer stated that they have been producing the console for two months and have dispatched as many consoles to the stores as possible, but the demand is very high. Microsoft executive vice president said that the COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the whole world. In addition, he added that 2020 is a very challenging year in terms of developing and releasing games to a new platform. Spencer said he is also proud of the third-party developers, his team and Sony employees who were able to release games this holiday season.

Xbox Broke Sales Record

The Xbox Series X and Series S had their most profitable opening for Microsoft to date. According to the news in Gamespot, Microsoft managed to sell more consoles than ever before in various countries within the first 24 hours. Xbox One, which was released in 2013, had 1 million sales on its first day. The Xbox Series S, which we can refer to as the younger brother of the Xbox Series X, became the most popular console among gamers who bought an Xbox console for the first time. Microsoft also stated that 70% of Xbox Series X and Series S consoles are subscribed to Games Pass. Game Pass seems to be one of Microsoft’s most important weapons in the next generation consoles.
