PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, Spencer: "The problem is demand, not supply"

Author and references

According to the New York Times, for Phil Spencer the demand for Xbox Series X and PS5 is higher than the current stocks present, making both consoles one of the most sought after on the market today. According to Microsoft's number one, the shortage of materials is not the only cause of the scarcity of consoles on sale.



After recent statements regarding the severance of relations with Activision, Phil Spencer now has his say about the incredible demand for new next generation consoles, which saw stocks empty in no time. According to the statements made in the interview, the sale of Xbox Series X consoles has far exceeded all sales of previous consoles.

According to what was declared, the huge demand from users was so great that it greatly exceeded expectations, which then created a shortage of consoles of all kinds, which would therefore not be particularly due to the stock crisis, according to the head of the Xbox division, but to the enormous growth of the gamer community that is increasingly ready to act as early adopter of the new generations.

Obviously, the fact remains that both Sony and Xbox have not managed to curb the demand with a sufficient amount of stocks, even if the situation is increasingly being resolved.

Also in the same interview, the head of Xbox also confirmed, in part, the enormous success of the new console, stating:



At this point, we have sold more of this generation of Xbox, which is Xbox Series X and S, than with any previous version of Xbox.


It therefore appears that for Phil Spencer the real reason for the lack of stocks of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles lies in the huge demand from users, a much higher demand than originally imagined.
