According to the latest estimates released by market research agency Ampere Analysis, Microsoft has sold a total of 18.5 million Xbox Series S|X game consoles. Microsoft no longer officially announces the sales of Xbox console, the above data is the agency’s estimated value.
For a better comparison, attached is the official data released by Sony in its latest financial report: PlayStation 5 sales have exceeded 32 million units.
Ampere Analysis analyst Piers Harding-Rolls believes that supply chain and other issues will cause many challenges in the game console market in 2022. Revenue in the global console games market will drop from $60.9 billion in 2021 to $56.9 billion in 2022.
Sony’s 2022 market share (including console hardware, games, and services) will be 45%, down 1.3% from 2021. Microsoft has grown its market share from 25.5 percent to 27.3 percent over the same period, thanks to increased spending on console hardware and services like Game Pass.
