Both Xbox Series X and toned-down Series S consoles have been scarcely available around the world since launching in November 2020. Recently, both Flipkart and Amazon had restocked the Xbox Series S console few weeks ago, but it was sold out within days. The company had previously said that the shortage in supplies would last till at least June this year. The production has taken a serious hit due to the unavailability of semiconductors. Similarly, Microsoft Xbox’ biggest competitor PlayStation 5 by Sony is also unavailable around the world due to a shortage in parts.
The Microsoft Xbox Series X supports 120fps gameplay in 4K (Ultra-HD) resolution. Further, the Microsoft console supports up to 8K HDR resolution and comes with other video features like Auto Low Latency Mode, HDMI Variable Refresh Rate, and AMD FreeSync.
