Demand for Microsoft’s consoles is expected to outstrip supply for the foreseeable future, with Xbox head Phil Spencer recently suggesting Xbox Series X/S shortages will continue into spring 2021.

UK technology retailer Box is holding ballots to decide which customers will be able to purchase new Xbox Series X/S stock when it receives it later this month.
