Some Halo Infinite players need to use the Xbox Development Kit for their first major tournament

Microsoft has had major problems procuring Xbox consoles as some players have been forced to play with the Xbox Series X Development Kit at the first major Halo Infinite tournament (via Kotaku) in Raleigh, NC. And it seems. Game development kits consist of the hardware used by developers to create games that are not normally open to the public, not to mention used in official game tournaments. Tahir Hasandjekic, 343 Industries’ Halloe Sports and Viewership Lead, tweeted a pre-tournament tweet and warned some players to play with the Xbox Series X Development Kit instead of the real thing. He states that the development kit is “functionally identical and runs in a retail” mode “.” Players can maintain the “exactly the same experience” as any other player playing on a standard console, but the hardware is clearly different overall. As a reason to use the development kit, Hasandjekic frankly explains that “the lack of a global supply chain is a reality.” The lack of
chips makes it difficult to find everything from PC parts, game consoles, vehicles to even home appliances. In September, Xbox CEO Phil Spencer said supply chain restrictions could continue until next year. Not only is Microsoft struggling to get enough of its console, but Apple’s senior vice president of services, Eddy Cue, doesn’t seem to get the new Xbox either. Queue followed @XboxStockAlerts, a Twitter account that posts about the Xbox console population, and proved that even the best connections can’t guarantee access to the console.
