Forums - Sales Discussion - XS Outsells PS5, Switch Comfortably in 1st - Global Hardware Mar 13-19

While a lot of it is due to there being less PS5 supply the shift compared to the same week in 2015 is still insane. And I wonder if 200k+ would be the current baseline for the Xbox Series if there was always ample supply.

When was the last time Xbox substantially outsold PS in a week?
The week before a PS4 price cut or remodel? The 7th gen?



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

The launch of the Xbox One X.

Ah, how silly of me, that should've been obvious. That's what I get for posting before my morning coffee. XD

At any rate, nice to see both XS and PS5 get a boost. XS even managed to outsell Switch in America, though Nintendo's system still dominates globally.

XBox is kicking ass this week.  PS5 is only just slightly ahead of X|S in Europe, and that is supposed to be their best territory.  In the Americas X|S is even ahead of Switch this week. 

In general, XBox is doing extremely well and they haven't even released any of their Bethesda or Activision exclusives yet.  I think they are going to be a force to be reckoned with this generation.

Yup, that's what we've been trying to say for a while.

We don't expect them to beat Sony and the ps5 but the race will be much closer.

I’m not even an Xbox owner or fan, but even I’ve been interested to see where they’re going. I know some people don’t like the idea of greater exclusivity, but in an era with such large volumes of software releases (like 25-50 a week on Switch alone), there’s a lot more room for high numbers of exclusives compared to the N64 and Gamcube era where you might not get 25-50 games in the first half of the year.

I like the idea of competition and diversity of vision. Xbox is turning into something more than a PS Clonebox. I think they’ve been seeking their own identity since last generation, but the Kinect thing just didn’t work out.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Still the general consensus is " I can't find a ps5". Massive shortages issue. The xbox series s has been easy to find ever since launch. They should break down the series s/x sales just so we can see how series x is doing against ps5. But both will be have supply issues for sure.

I'm still amazed Xbox One is still selling? Didn't they discontinue in 2020?



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.
