The Xbox Series X/S has left the PS5 for the first time - says Microsoft

Microsoft has long since no longer published sales of their Xbox systems. On the one hand, this has to do with the fact that the brand has been hanging behind the Playstation and the Nintendo Switch for a long time, but on the other hand, also with the fact that hardware no longer plays the very big role in the plans of the publisher. However, the financial report for the last quarter makes you take notice and claims that the Xbox Series X/S lead the next-gen this year.

the Xbox Series X/S is so good

In the first quarter of 2022 (January to March), Microsoft was able to implement $ 3.74 billion with the Xbox department. This is an increase of 6 percent compared to the previous year. According to CEO Satya Nadella, the company was able to win market share for the second time (via Eurogamer). According to business insider Daniel Ahmad, the Xbox even celebrates the best quarter without Christmas business ever.

Ahmad shows how sales divide-the hardware sales make up around 19 percent:

Xbox in front of PlayStation: It should be even more important for Microsoft that in 2022 they are so far "in the USA, Canada, Western Europe and Great Britain. In short: the Xbox Series X/S brought in more money in the first quarter of the year than the PS5. The switch is probably not one of the next gene devices.

Potential is far from being exhausted: Let's be honest, the new generation of consoles has not yet really started for Microsoft - at least as far as the software is concerned. Most of the many studios that have joined (and will still) have come to the Xbox team in the past few months and years could either only produce small or yet no exclusive titles for the Xbox Series X/S. The coming years will show how much the Game Pass and Exclusive like Starfield will strengthen the console.

The Series X is also available in halo design:

How meaningful are the numbers really?

But there is a big one when we talk about the sales figures of the new consoles: Both Microsoft and Sony cannot produce enough consoles at the moment because of the scarcity of semiconductor chips. This means that we don't know exactly how many devices the manufacturers could actually stop. Despite all of this, Microsoft's internal increase shows that the Xbox Series X/S is on the right track.

Do you think the Xbox Series X/S can the PS5 reach the water in the long run?
