Microsoft does appear to be able to meet demand for the $ 299 Xbox Series S, however. At the time of publication, the Xbox Series S is in stock at Amazon in the UK and Best Buy in the US. Speaking just after the Xbox Series X / S launched in 2020, Xbox chief Phil Spencer said The edge that the company had built more Xbox Series X consoles than the S Series, but ultimately the lower price of the S Series would win out.

“We can actually build more of the S series [chips] in the same [chip] die space as we can the X series, ”Spencer said. This is one of the main reasons we are seeing a stable stock of Xbox Series S, alongside Microsoft’s decision to quietly discontinue the Xbox One S in favor of its next-gen consoles.
