An analysis report of the console market showed that the PlayStation 5 “PS5” had shipments over its rival Xbox Series X; Which officially launched around the beginning of this November.
According to VGChartz, the Sony PS5 console sold almost twice as much as Microsoft’s Xbox Series X; Total sales of 2.5 million units in all countries in which it was launched.
As the total sales on November 13 – the start of the launch – ranged between 1.3 million to 1.6 million PlayStation 5 devices; According to statistics, from 800,000 to 900,000 devices were sold on November 19, that is, after their launch in the rest of the world.
On the other hand, the report showed that the Xbox X series achieved sales between 1.2 million to 1.4 million units that were sold within 24 hours of the official launch on November 10.
Sony thanked its fans immediately after the launch of the new generation of the games console, announcing the biggest start for the PlayStation unit ever. These figures are promising for the Japanese company, especially since many PlayStation fans and fans have not had the opportunity to acquire them during the last period. They are still hoping to be available in retail stores before the end of the year.
Microsoft had previously expected that it would not be able to keep up with the demand for its new devices, but despite this, Sony still surpassed them in terms of sales, as the report shows.
