Microsoft admitted that Sony PlayStation 4 had more than doubled in Xbox One sales

For a long time Microsoft has not disclosed the sales volume of the last generation's Xbox One game consoles. Now it has become known that the competing PlayStation 4 Consul has outrun the Xbox One, and has done so more than convincingly.

Microsoft stopped publishing data on Xbox One console sales at the beginning of the 2016 fiscal year, focusing instead on Xbox Live indicators. This means that from that point on, it was only possible to assume how successful Microsoft devices competed in the market. Many analysts were inclined to believe that Microsoft consoles by volume were in third place and were inferior to Sony and Nintendo consoles.

Now, information on this issue has been found in documents that Microsoft has submitted to the Brazilian Antimonopoly Service, as described in Microsoft.

As of March of this year, Sony has implemented 117.2 million PlayStation 4. Although Microsoft does not disclose accurate sales data on Xbox One, it is clear that the company has marketed less than 58.5 million Xbox One devices. This is consistent with Ampere Analysis, whose specialists estimated that Microsoft had sold about 51 million Xbox One consoles at the end of the second quarter of 2020. According to the source, Nintendo has now sold about 111.08 million Switch consoles, and it appears that this year the company can outrun PlayStation 4.
