Microsoft CEO Praises 'Market Leading' Sales Of Xbox Consoles In 2022

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.
