Microsoft tries really hard not to say the next Xbox could be delayed by coronavirus

Re: Obvious certainty of massive sales

Possibly that said i would be just as likely to believe that they will hold back launch until there is suitable stock levels in distribution centres just to safe guard the PR wins they have had this far against PS5. Cant see iphone false scarcity to be a good look at christmas for what will by and large be gifts for kids, "here is your xbox iou card, now wait till easter till you can plug it in, thats your lot..."

When they launch they will want to ensure that any one with 5-600 quid in pocket has the ability to walk away with a new xbox thats in stock rather than a ps5, and given how the ps4 has dominated this generation MS will not let a chance to get a clear lead at the start of this refresh cycle slip them by.
