The semiconductor crisis has reached all technological sectors, which is why companies such as Nintendo or PlayStation have re-evaluated their estimates in order to anticipate what could be a more persistent problem than we thought. Phil Spencer has joined these valuations and believes that the shortage of last generation consoles will remain in 2022 , but now we could be seeing the same situation in the controls of Xbox Series.
We are working as quickly as possible with our manufacturing and sales partners to improve this Microsoft In recent weeks, United Kingdom players have found difficulties to get one of the Xbox devices. Following this trace, VGC has asked Microsoft about the current stability of the stock in its controls, which has resulted in a official confirmation : We know that it may be complicated to find wireless Xbox controls right now due to interruptions of supply , explains a company spokesman.
We are working as quickly as possible with our manufacturing and sales partners to improve this. Please check the availability in your local stores , the message concludes. At the moment, the official Microsoft store in the United Kingdom indicates that the Xbox controls have been exhausted , although the inhabitants of the country can request custom devices via Xbox Design Lab.
How is the situation in Spain?
Components’ shortage is a problem that affects worldwide, so we can expect repercussions similar to those of the United Kingdom. For example, if we look for an Xbox command in the Microsoft Store we will see that, as we explain a few lines above, they are also exhausted by these parts. However, stores like Game or Amazon still have stocks.
Of course, the estimates of large companies do not predict anything good around the semiconductor crisis. In this sense, Intel worsened his first forecasts and warns that the problem will continue until 2024 , so it is very possible that we continue to drag these complications for a long time.
