So, the ps5 was over 30 million on 31 of December? They are way off the reality. Sony told and the end of 2022, not in the last day of the year... Much less after Christmas.. Unless thousands went trade the console they got for a ps5

trunkswd134d ago (Edited 134d ago )

It doesn't meant it passed 30 million on December 31. But sometime during the week ENDING December 31. It will be around 30.3 to 30.4 million at the end of 2022.

pay rider no mind, he thinks all numbers are wrong... even famitsu.

Maybe Sony reported sold to suppliers. It will still be sold so it doesn’t matter.

I’m really shocked the switch is still selling as good as it is. You would think by now the sales would be surpassed by the other consoles but it’s trudging along very nicely. Still sales are not as high as they used to be I remember when around Christmas time all consoles would sell at least million each. Just shows things are still not 100% back to normal.

"Maybe Sony reported sold to suppliers"

The gap Sony is gaining when Xbox does release some games there wowon'be enough consoles sold to catch up.

Aloymetal133d ago

The gap will continue to grow regardless if they can’t garner as much appeal outside of North America as Sony/PS does. It’s highly unlikely Microsoft could ever release a more ''successful'' console than Xbox 360, let alone cross the 100 million mark like its fellow competition has done multiple times.

I don't think MS will Catch up to Sony this whole gen, unless something miraculous happens. I personally think this a gen where MS actually competes and leave behind the Xbox one stain.

Strategy and some not liking them aside, they have already made a slight shift away from Xbox one it terms of presentation & message. Last gen was a hands down run-away for Sony on every level, from games, sales and presentation..current gen seems like there is an actual fight happening...IMO.

Xbox definitely won't catch up to PS and that's fine. They'll be much more competitive though once the games start rolling.

Sgt_Slaughter134d ago

Any second now. Just got to wait a little longer. Right around the corner.

To be fair Xbox has multiple big games launching in the first half of this year. Starfield, Forza Motorsport, and Redfall.

Destiny1080134d ago

once the S hits 169 with 2 games bundled, sales will start to pick up

obidanshinobi133d ago

Xbox won't catch up, they're repeating the same mistakes as the XB One i.e. lack of quality AAA exclusive games to drive to your platform.
Xbox Series consoles have been out for over 2 years yet the only big AAA exclusives have been Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite. It's not enough compared to the exclusives Playstation manages to release fairly regularly.
Xbox is run by idiots and their studios are on the MS gravy train because they have deep pockets.

AmUnRa134d ago not a reliable source, so take this not serious, they overtracking the Xbox and undertracking the Playstation, and thats the truth...

darthv72133d ago

why not address your feelings to trunkswd up there? He is the one who runs that site. And he's been doing a much better job lately than years prior.
