Want to repair/upgrade your Xbox? Soon you can!

Hopefully, by the end of 2022, Microsoft will allow and supply parts for their customers’ consoles to repair or upgrade. In the past, it wasn’t exactly not allowed to do so, but it was rather difficult to find parts, as Microsoft wouldn’t sell spare parts to anyone to repair their device unless it was by an authorised repair partner.

However, according to recent reports, Microsoft is planning on starting an environmental and social benefits scheme that will make it easier to repair devices. This is expected to kick off by the end of 2022. Till then, they are setting up studies to look into the benefits of giving their customers better access to parts to upgrade and repair, just to see how much of a benefit it will have to reduce carbon emissions and waste.

If these studies prove to be beneficial for consumers when repairing their products, Microsoft will officially authorise the start of their repair network and launch their findings by May 2022, and only then will they start to provide parts for your Xbox.

So, over the next year or so, keep an eye out for any potential Microsoft news and hope to see some positive environmental impacts that will benefit both us as gamers and our planet.
