Including this one, Microsoft’s machines have been quite a bit less popular than Sony’s for 2 generations of consoles. Still, the Xbox Series X is even harder to find than the PS5.
What is funny to say the least is that the Xbox Series S, the little sister of the Series X unable to send 4K, is the only next-gen console whose stocks can hold up. All the others, the Series X first, are eating the great shortage of electronic components head-on.
According to leading analysts on the issue, no return to normal is expected before 2023. Should you give up hope? No: with patience and determination, anything becomes possible. Although the event is rare, Xbox Series Xs return to stock from time to time. Our job is also to keep you informed of this.

To prepare for the next gen, it is always possible to purchase the official storage space extension, which is very easy to plug in behind the console. This is a 1TB SSD produced by SanDisk in close collaboration with Microsoft.
Let’s take a quick look at what the Xbox Series X is. The Velocity architecture connects RAM, SSD, and processor for unparalleled compute speed on a home console. 12 teraflops on the clock, an 8-core processor clocked at 3.8 GHz, 16 GB of GDDR6 … Microsoft’s latest console is a war machine.
A custom SSD is integrated into this swift configuration for 1TB internal storage. With 1TB, you have room to stall a lot of titles, even greedy next gen games. With an SSD, loading times are almost reduced to zero. It’s a bit magical.
The console displays games in 4K with no problem and can even go up to 8K for compatible movies and games. But that’s not all ! For the few games for which this will be possible, the Xbox Series X also has enough in its belly to send 120 frames per second, even in 4K. Obviously, this Xbox Series X is looking to the future.
In addition to its own internal resources, Xbox is in a strategy of external growth which consists in taking over numerous studios in order to integrate them into the Gamepass service.
If you are a PC gamer, you are bound to know GamePass, a sort of Netflix for video games, which allows you to download tons of games, including the very latest titles from Micosoft, for a monthly subscription. The Xbox Series X is a powerful machine, certainly, but also designed for GamePass: its interface is specifically designed to integrate service at the heart of the user experience.
