Xbox Series X|S sales are behind Xbox One Sales compared by same post-launch timeframe

Microsoft Approaches Purchase of Activision Blizzard
Written by Ankit Gaba

According to a recent report by Ampere, Xbox Series X and S combined sales are around 2.8 million currently, which is lower than the amount of Xbox One sales during the same time-frame. Microsoft stopped giving updates on Xbox Sales a while ago because they are focusing on their Live Services more, such as Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Gamepass. So I do not expect them to announce official numbers or anything unless they decide to start sharing updates again, which most likely won’t happen. I think the main reasons for the sales being lower are the production shortages. A thing you should know about this data is that Ampere Analysis claims that their data focuses on the consoles directly sold to consumers and not the ones shipped to retailers.

On the other side, PlayStation has managed to match to catch up by selling 4.5 Million Units of PlayStation 5 despite the production shortages. Sony is aiming to sell 8 million units by March 2021. I really hope the production shortage ends soon, but I doubt it will happen until June-July. AMD CEO has also said that these types of shortages might continue until Mid-2021, and they might even last longer due to the increasing demand for Next-Gen Consoles.
