Following allegations that individuals in Europe were unable to acquire Xbox Series X|S controllers, Microsoft has acknowledged that there is a supply constraint.

According to VGC, the stock is presently being affected by supply interruptions, with a huge number of significant sellers entirely sold out. Users on ResetEra recently expressed their difficulties to obtain a new Xbox controller in Europe, and those that were available were in extremely limited quantity or only available via resellers.

Since the debut of the latest Xbox and PlayStation generations, console scarcity has been widespread, prompting Sony to produce more PS4s than intended apparently. However, accessories have typically been inexpensive. Microsoft’s response does not address the core cause of the supply disruption, but perhaps this is just a blip on the radar rather than a hint of larger supply concerns to come.

“We understand it could be difficult to locate Xbox Wireless Controllers right now owing to supply problems,” Microsoft acknowledged in a statement to VGC. “We’re working as quickly as we can with our production and retail partners to fix this. Please confirm availability with your local retailer.”

Amazon UK is one of the only places where you can get a wireless Xbox controller, otherwise, third-party sellers charge nearly twice as much, with prices beginning at $110. Despite wireless Xbox One controllers being available, there are variations between the prior generation and current generation controllers. Microsoft should identify and remedy this deficit as soon as possible.

In the United Kingdom, the situation is very similar. Nobody knows why this is happening, but perhaps the company’s official controllers are indeed unavailable. The controllers are still available from third-party retailers, however, the authorized wireless controllers are no longer available. Leading retailers in numerous locations are totally sold out of Xbox Wireless Controllers as of now, and the accessories appear to be particularly expensive in Europe.
