News PlayStation PlayStation 5 PS5 PS5 Sales PS5 Shipments Sony Xbox Series X/S

The PS5 Has Shipped An Estimated 5x More Units Than The Xbox Series X/S In The Last Quarter

When the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S first launched all the way back in 2020, console sales were not what either platform manufacturer wanted them to be. The pandemic slowed things down more than ever before, even though in the case of each next-gen console, all the units that were manufactured, sold.

Of course that didn’t last, and soon manufacturing limitations on the consoles were a thing of the past, and sales started to leap forward. For one next-gen console platform, at least.

It’s been clear for a while now that the PS5 outsells the Xbox consoles, though numbers from PlayStation’s latest quarter, according to Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, suggest the PS5 outsold the Xbox Series X/S with nearly 5x more units shipped.

“The PlayStation 5 shipped 4.5 million units in the last quarter. According to our estimates, this is almost 5x more than the Xbox Series X/S shipped in the same period.”
