The Xbox Series X and Series S systems have been extremely difficult to find since they launched in November, and stock hasn’t improved much at the major retailers. However, head of Xbox Phil Spencer said he’s taken some steps to ensure the console will be more plentiful soon.
Talking to Xbox Live’s “Major Nelson” Larry Hryb on his podcast (via VGC), Spencer explained that Microsoft has been making new consoles as quickly as possible, but he’s also working with their production partners to further increase output.
“It really is just down to physics and engineering. We’re not holding them back,” Spencer said. “We’re building them as fast as we can. We have all the assembly lines going. I was on the phone last week with Lisa Su at AMD [asking], ‘How do we get more? How do we get more?’ So it’s something that we’re constantly working on, but it’s not just us. I think gaming has really come into its own in 2020.”
