Xbox One X, the new powerful console of Microsoft will make its debut in a few days on November 7th precisely, but some retailers are wondering if there are enough units to accommodate any requests.
In this regard, the UK site of MCV contacted some local stores and it seems that the concern about the number of stocks is well limited.
Some retailers are talking about lower units than what happened with the launch of Xbox One, others seemed more optimistic, saying that after the day one launch of the console, more stocks of Xbox One units will be out:
“We are seeing very high demand for Xbox One X and while we are doing our best to keep up with that demand, unfortunately, it is the case that, as with any new console launch, there is a limited amount of stock available. This is not specific to independent retailers and we are finding that every retailer would wish to have more Xbox One X stock for launch, which is reflective of the strong pre-order performance we are seeing.
What we are doing is working very hard to keep the supply flowing in the weeks immediately following launch, and we are hopeful that additional stock will be available in the subsequent weeks.”
Regarding this issue, the director of Xbox UK and Ireland, Harvey Eagle, confirmed that the demand for Xbox One X is very high and the company is doing everything in its power to deal with the problem:
“We are seeing very high demand for Xbox One X. We are doing our best to keep up with that demand but unfortunately it is the case that, as with any new console launch, there is always a limited amount of stock available at launch,” Eagle stated.
“We are doing everything we can to address retailers’ short-term requirements for launch, as well as working very hard to keep the supply flowing in the weeks immediately following the launch. Please check delivery dates with your retailer when pre-ordering Xbox One X so you are clear when the product will be available,” Eagle concluded.
Xbox One X will debut on November 7 next month at a price of $499.
