As Microsoft pushes on in pursuit of wrapping up its Activision Blizzard acquisition, countries around the world are continuing to scrutinize the deal. Brazil is one such country, where a regulatory body in the South American nation has been has been looking at Microsoft, and various other third parties, in relation to the deal. Now, Brazilian court documents from the authority have revealed something interesting about last-gen console sales.
Spotted and translated by Game Luster, court papers from August 9th, 2022 discuss console sales and how Sony has a much bigger market share in that regard. Here's the translated quote:
Sony has surpassed Microsoft in terms of console sales and install base, having sold more than twice as many [as] Xbox in the last generation
Given that as of March 2022, Sony's final PS4 sales number sits at roughly 117 million, that'd put Xbox One at around 50-60 million units sold overall. It's a respectable number, but yeah, the system was a ways off PS4 by the end of the last generation.
Still, this generation, things are looking good for Xbox. Xbox consoles are selling better than ever in Japan, and sales across Europe seem healthy too. We'll have to wait and see where things lie at the end of the generation, whenever that may be!
Do you think Xbox Series X|S will outsell Xbox One overall? Let us know down below.
