Welfare from ResetEra estimating Xbox Series X|S shipment figures of ~6.4 million as of June 30, 2021. We have sold through sales of 5.82 million for July 3. I'd say our estimates are pretty dang close. 

Never understood why MS is not publishing any sales data anymore, even if Series X/S are doing better than their previous consoles launch aligned.

And what about subscriptions data, nothing??

Also, does the data for revenue includes the Xbox One?

It does include Xbox One revenue, but at this point Xbox One hardware is a drop in the bucket. I wish Microsoft would share Xbox Series X|S sales figures. 

They did say Xbox Game Pass continued to grow in the latest quarter, but they didn't say the total number of Game Pass subs.

As HW power is a strong selling point for both PS5 and XS, I suspect that a thing that can damage both Sony and MS is the fact that multiplats must run also on the crippled XS base model so the HW power of the best Sony and MS models is quite considerably underused.

As Xbox Series S has a solid state drive and the same CPU as the X just at a slightly lower clockspeed, and graphics are highly scalable, it shouldn't be as big a anchor as raw Teraflops might suggest. Games can simply use lower graphics settings on the S and higher ones on X and PS5 in the same way that the PC versions of games are already designed to run on a wide range of hardware power specs.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

MS Flight Sim runs pretty dang well on my Series S. We shouldn't be seeing too much any issues for many years with it.

The Bethesda console exclusivity and Xbox series S maybe Microsoft better positioned this gen. And I believe total sales of the twins(Xbox and PS) stabilize, not more go down, because India market. Let's see...

Low market entry with Gamepass is a good proposition on stationary consoles. 



Sony just confirmed on twitter 10 million ps5 sold as of 18 july. So the estimation here is on track

Fairly on track, but I'll admit we are one week ahead of Sony's report. We have it at 10 million as of July 10. 

"We are thrilled to announce that as of July 18th, 2021, we have sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles globally."

Congrats on the accurate tracking! Amazing job.

Thank you. Being roughly 1 week off is pretty good. They do say over 10 million, so it is entirely possibly it crossed 10 million a handful of days earlier. I will adjust our PS5 numbers down a hair so it tops 10 million week ending July 17 rather than July 10. Right now we have PS5 BARELY above 10 million as of July 10.

not on track, is overtracked. But excellent work in estimates, so close.

Only by one week, which is still pretty good. I'll make the necessary adjustments to have it topping 10 million a week later.
