Microsoft confirms that Xbox One sales were less than half those of PS4

Microsoft has kept exact details on Xbox One sales close to its chest for several years, but the company has confirmed that its console outsold the PS4 by a very wide margin.

Sony recently confirmed that it was winding down production of the PS4 and would no longer report shipments of its next-gen console, which had lifetime sales of 117.2 million in March 2022. That would mean Microsoft sold fewer than 58 .5 million units. , which is roughly in line with a report by Ampere Analysis that estimated the Xbox One install base to be 51 million units as of Q2 2020.

The good news for Microsoft is that its Xbox Series X|S sales appear to be improving, even surpassing PS5 sales in Japan this year. Over 1 million consoles have been sold in the UK alone, with overall sales figures sitting at around 12 million units shipped as of January this year. However, ongoing supply chain issues caused by global semiconductor shortages are also likely to play a role in this.

Sony’s PS5 continues to sell well, although the sales gap between the two devices has narrowed dramatically compared to the Xbox One and PS4 era. Microsoft’s Phil Spencer confirmed that the Xbox Series X|S is the best-selling Xbox platform of all time during its first year.

With the proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard in the spotlight around the world, Microsoft and Sony have revealed a number of interesting facts through court documents that have been made available to the public.

Sony has claimed that its users could jump to Xbox if Microsoft owns the Call of Duty franchise, something the Xbox company has disputed, while Microsoft has responded by claiming that Sony pays “blocking fees” to prevent games from appearing on its service. Game Pass subscription.
