Excitement among Xbox fans for the upcoming Xbox One X is running high, and it appears that has translated to solid demand for Microsoft's next console as well. In a recent interview with CNBC, Panos Panay, Microsoft's corporate vice president of devices, said demand is "super high."
Panay shied away from exact numbers, but he elaborated, saying:
I won't compare it to other consoles. What I'll say is the demand for Xbox One X right now is exactly where we anticipated, even more so when you see that excitement for the product... this is something that resonates with gamers.
That demand has been visible in the ebb and flow of availability since preorders for the new console went live. We saw the console quickly sell out at a number of retailers ahead of launch, though preorders are once again available at Amazon and have remained so at Microsoft.
If you're planning on skipping preorders and picking up an Xbox One X on release day, you might run into some trouble — at least in some regions. Microsoft UK recently said to expect shortages on launch, though new stock is expected to be delivered to retail stores each week through Christmas.
