The component shortage And, therefore, of electronic devices dependent on these is very real and covers different strata of the industry. The most recent example of this has just been seen in the last tournament of Halo Infinite, for which Microsoft itself has had to pull development kits from the console.
It sounds a bit extreme, but it has been, according to what is told in Kotaku: Microsoft has had to resort to the use of Xbox Series X development kits to stock devices to the first major tournament that has been held around one of the star titles of the new generation of your console, Halo Infinite.
«The shortage in the global supply chain is real«, Sentenced about this’ anecdote ‘the leader of the 343 Industries eSports firm, Tahir Hasandjekic, one of the organizers of the Halo Championship Series’ Raleigh Major affected by this fact … but affected in quotation marks, because as indicated by himself Hasandjekic, it’s the same deep down.
«Attention players: this weekend you will be playing on the Series X development consoles. They are functionally identical and will be operating in “Personal” mode, so it is exactly the same experience, they just look a little different«, Hasandjekic pointed by Twitter. The performance does not change, but the data weighs and the image of the event has assumed it.
