Following yesterday's Microsoft earnings report for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, Microsoft Executive Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella had a few things to say about the report from an Xbox perspective, and it's all good news!
In his follow-up, Nadella mentioned that Xbox Series X and S "have taken share globally for two quarters in a row," and they were also "the market leader this quarter among next-gen consoles in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Western Europe."
In a nutshell, as pointed out by our friends at Push Square, Nadella is implying that the Xbox Series X and S have potentially outsold the PS5 for the past two quarters, and recent sales charts in the UK and US have suggested as such.
Of course, there's a bigger picture to all this in terms of the stock issue surrounding next-gen consoles, and the PS5 is really struggling in particular, but it's nevertheless great to see Xbox doing so well from a hardware sales perspective again. In the earnings report, it was confirmed hardware revenue for Xbox is up 14% year-on-year.
