Black Friday Xbox stock shortages are frustrating, but here's how you can give yourself the best chance of buying an Xbox Series X this weekend...

But try finding an Xbox Series X in the Black Friday sales and you'll likely come up blank.

Both the Xbox Series S and top-of-the-line Series X have been in short supply since launching on 10th November 2020?

In the case of the Xbox Series X, the situation is so dire that simply finding Xbox Series Black Friday X stock is a 'deal' in itself.

We'll reveal them in a moment, but first, let's answer the question that has plagued store managers for the last 12 months: why is the Xbox Series X in short supply.

In February 2021, Microsoft's head of investor relations, told The New York Times that Microsoft had "sold every Xbox unit it had last quarter," adding that supply was "likely to be constrained at least through June.".

Later that month, US President Joe Biden – an unlikely Xbox fan – took matters into his own hands, announcing an investigation into stock shortages and promising legislation to boost the supply of semiconductor chips used in both the Xbox Series X and PS5.

And by September 2021, even Xbox boss Phil Spencer had announced that "Series X stock issues will last into next year"

Finding an Xbox Series X deal is still difficult..
