Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad has indicated that PS5 has gained an early lead over the Xbox Series X in terms of sales, suggesting Microsoft’s console is just over one million units behind the Sony system.
Yesterday, Sony announced that it had shipped 4.5 million PS5s in 2020, which is the first official figures we’ve seen since the console’s November 2020 launch. Microsoft has’t said anything yet other than the Xbox Series X was the biggest Xbox launch in history.
However, posting on Twitter, Ahmad responded to Ryan McCaffrey’s pondering on how well the Xbox Series X has performed so far compared to PS5. From the look of things, Microsoft’s machine is just over one million units short of its lead competitor.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X both launched within one week of each other in November 2020, although stock has been in limited supply after the initial launch batch sold out.
