The video game market has always been divided, with console and PC players, but in turn among those who decide to bet on consoles, there has always been a division of the market according to the company of the device. In this sense, today we have 3 companies that dominate the market, although to tell the truth, only 2 of them compete for the same type of user: PlayStation and Xbox.
There is no doubt that this competition benefits us gamers, achieving innovation in our sector, this being especially notable on the Microsoft side, since, except for a large part of the Xbox 360 and PS3 generation, it does not usually manage to surpass PlayStation in sales. In this way, we have been able to see, over the years, different ways in which Microsoft has tried to win more and more usersThe result of this is Xbox Game Pass, a service that includes some of the best Series X games, for example.
In this generation it seemed, until now, that things were more close, judging by the data that we were receiving from time to time, but now a new report has come out that indicates the opposite. Next we tell you all the details.
PlayStation 5 is ahead of Series X | S
We are talking about a report brought to us by Ampere Analysis, in which video game market data is analyzed, including console sales. In this we can see that PS5 would have sold about 30 million unitswhile the Xbox Series X | S would be around 18.5 millionbeing this a quite considerable gap.
Of course, we are not talking about a debacle, and the numbers are positive for Microsoft, especially due to the disappointment that Xbox One turned out to be in sales, but the truth is that we did not expect the difference to be so big.
In addition, as a separate piece of information, this report specifies that Xbox gamers prefer to buy Series Xinstead of the Series S. He explains that yes, during the past year the console with the worst features sold more, but this was mainly due to the stock problem of its older sister, so this trend should change in the next few years. next months.
