December 2022 is the 26th month the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S has been available for. In the latest month, the gap grew in favor of the PlayStation 5 when compared to the aligned launch of the Xbox Series X|S by 1.22 million units.
In the last 12 months, the PlayStation 5 has outsold the Xbox Series X|S by 4.19 million units. The PlayStation 5 is currently ahead by 10.11 million units.
Gap increase in a single month by 1.22 million is pretty strong for the PS5. Although what the real worldwide numbers are, we can only speculate.
Supply meeting demand. Or did anyone really think PS5 owners were giving up their PlayStation libraries to switch to Xbox.
