PlayStation remains the king of console sales, continues leading Xbox and Nintendo Switch

Both released in November 2013; just how many units have the PS4 and Xbox One sold so far? See PS4 and Xbox One lifetime sales reports.

Although Microsoft no longer reveals how many units of Xbox it has sold in a particular period, it released a statement confirming that PlayStation is the undisputed king.

In a document that the company shared with Brazil’s national competition regulator, it conceded that its previous gen Xbox One console sales were nowhere near the numbers that PS4 put up.

“Sony has surpassed Microsoft in terms of console sales and installed base, having sold more than twice as many Xbox in the last generation,” the statement, translated from Portuguese to English, read.

Xbox One sales numbers stopped appearing in reports in 2016, almost three years after the console was released. Instead, Microsoft chose to report Xbox Live numbers, its online multiplayer gaming and digital media delivery service.

The Verge estimates that if PS4 lifetime sales were at 117.2 million units as of March 2022, it means that Xbox One has sold less than 58.5 million units. With Nintendo Switch (released in 2017) already pulling figures like 11.08 million lifetime sales, then Microsoft’s gaming tool sits in third place.

In fact, the Nintendo Switch could surpass PS4 by the end of the year. However, both Sony and Microsoft have set their sights on the future. With both companies now focusing more of their marketing on their respective next-gen consoles, it is expected that their ‘ancient’ gaming boxes would see sales decline.

And when it comes to next-gen gaming gadgets, Microsoft still lags, but not by much. As of the end of 2021, Sony had shipped 17 million units of PS5, which is only about 1.6 times the number of Xbox Series that Microsoft had sold, according to market analysts Ampere Analysis.

Still, Microsoft is not giving us any official numbers report. Its admission in Brazil is only due to a dispute with Sony over Call of Duty acquisition.
