We've been seeing great news about Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S sales throughout the year across various regions, and in the United Kingdom specifically, it sounds like it could even become the best-selling console of 2022.
This is according to Chris Dring of GamesIndustry.biz, who reports that "just 20,000 units" separate the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, and therefore December is going to have a massive influence on the winner.
"Which console comes out top in the UK in 2022 is going to come down to December. Currently PS5 leads but just 20,000 units separates the 3 main platforms. I couldn’t call it."
November helped a lot with sales of Xbox Series X|S in the UK thanks to Black Friday week, with saw both consoles discounted across various retailers. In fact, 40% of all consoles sold during that week were the Series X and Series S.
We'll keep an eye out for the final data at the end of the year, as well as more information about how well the Series X and S have sold in the US, Japan, Europe and various other regions. In any case, it sounds like it's been a great year for the two consoles in the market, especially in recent months!
