If the consoles of Nintendo largely dominate this classification as usual, the other Japanese manufacturer cannot smile so much. The PlayStation 5 and its version without a disc drive are pale figures against the sales of American giant Microsoft lately, and especially this week. It’s here second timeafter a week in May where 6,120 Xbox Series S had sold against 2,963 PS5, that Microsoft beats Sony on its home turf.
Sony must start to feel the tide turn at home
Microsoft still has a long way to go. Indeed, if we take into account the cumulative console salesthe sales of Microsoft machines, Xbox Series X and Series S cumulated, do not even reach the number of sales of the PS5 Digital Edition. Compared to the classic PS5, they are even very, very far from catching up with it. But a console generation is judged over the long term, and Sony should start worrying to see today more Series S and more Series X sold that of PS5 + PS5 Digital Edition together. What is certain is that it is not Nintendo who has anything to worry about, far from it…
