Sony Has Sold 5.21 Million PS5 Consoles, Microsoft On 3.51 Million – Report

Despite a tumultuous generation with the Xbox One, the Xbox Series X and S hardware from Microsoft has sold 3.51 million.

When looking region to region, North American gamers have bought 2.47 million PS5s and 1.98 million Xbox Series consoles, while in Europe the numbers stand at 1.73 million and 1.05 million respectively.

In Japan, where Microsoft has traditionally struggled to gain a foothold, PS5 has sold 0.34 million while Xbox stands at just 0.03 million.

This is all despite supply constraints from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as scalpers that are hoarding consoles to sell at a profit.

As we reported recently, a private member's bill called the "Gaming Hardware (Automated Purchase and Resale) Bill 2019-21" is aiming to stamp out scalpers, at least in the UK.
