Microsoft confirms there is an Xbox controller shortage in Europe



After Reports Appeared Online Of People Unable To Buy Xbox Series X Controllers | S in Europe, Microsoft has now confirmed that there is a shortage.

Talk to VGC, the company confirmed that “supply shortages” are currently affecting inventory, with many major retailers completely sold out. Users on ResetEra recently shared their inability to pick up a new Xbox controller across Europe, and if there was, it was in very limited supply or through resellers.

“We know it can be difficult to find Xbox Wireless Controllers right now due to supply disruptions,” a Microsoft spokesperson told VGC. “We are working as quickly as possible with our manufacturing and retail partners to improve this. Please check availability with your local retailer.”

At the time of writing, there appear to be no proprietary wireless controllers available from major UK retailers such as GAME, Argos and even the official Microsoft Store. Many retailers carry the Elite controller, as well as third-party controllers, but the former is very expensive, and the latter can suffer wear and tear more easily.

As VGC pointed out, Amazon UK is one of the few retailers where you can currently buy a first-party Xbox Wireless Controller for the recommended retail price. But third-party sellers charge almost double that, with prices starting at $115 (£93.99).

There don’t appear to be any current stock issues in the US, with the Microsoft Store and Best Buy still selling controllers. Although, as VGC points out, Amazon US and GameStop only sell used controllers, which means there could be some stock issues in places.
