Xbox Series X/S Worldwide Shipments Reportedly at 3.5 Million Units

Microsoft's duo of new Xbox consoles seems to be trailing the PS5's shipment numbers by not that large a margin.

Microsoft and Sony have both got off to excellent starts with the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 respectively – especially where sales are concerned – with the Xbox Series X/S having sold more at launch than any other previous Xbox console, and the PS5 having shipped 4.5 million units worldwide as of the end of December.

Given the fact that Microsoft hasn’t been providing sales figures for its Xbox hardware for a few years now, we don’t have an exact idea for how the new pair of Xbox consoles is doing, though thanks to Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad, we might have a rough idea.

Ahmad recently took to Twitter and suggested that the Xbox Series X/S’ worldwide shipments so far are trailing the PS5 by about 1 million units, which would put the new Xbox consoles at around 3.5 million units in global sell-in numbers. These are far from exact numbers, but in the absence of official sales figures being provided by Microsoft, exact numbers are probably going to be hard to comeby.

Meanwhile, it looks like supply constraints are going to continue for both PS5 and Xbox Series X/S for the foreseeable future. Microsoft has said stock shortages will likely continue until at least June of this year, while Sony, too, is predicting manufacturing constraints due to a shortage of components.
