Sony's latest video game console, the PlayStation 5, has outsold the lifetime sales of the original Xbox, according to VGChartz estimates.
The PS5 had sold an estimated 24.98 million units worldwide through October 22, 2022, while the original Xbox sold 24.65 million units lifetime.
Up next for the PS5 is the Atari 2600 with 30 million units sold, followed by the Nintendo 64 with 32.93 million units sold and the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive with 34.06 million units sold.
A real shame the best Xbox sold so little.
Microsoft was a lot better hungry than glutinous pigs. Still enjoyed the console.
The console that introduced me to Max Payne. Halo, Rainbow 6, Fable and Kotor. Great times indeed!
PlayStation outsells XBOX each generation. Fixed.
Yeah, let's trust VGChartz more than Sony.
Didn't Sony just announce they've sold 25 million as of last September.
So who the f cares that VGChartz put it on 24.98 million 3 weeks later?
Because of the original XBOX the generation after never felt truly "Next Gen" for the first few years. The transition was almost as insignificant as the PS4/XBOXONE to PS5/XBOXSERIESX has been, barely.
After you played graphically impressive games like the Splinter Cell series, Chronicles of Riddick, Doom 3, Halo 2, Burnout Revenge, and Thief 3, you sorta became numb to what came after.
