The Xbox Series X|S console platform is the fastest-selling Xbox of all time, with total sales reaching an estimated 6.5 million units in sales.
From the period from launch until now, the Xbox Series X|S is the fast-selling Xbox console family, according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella during the company’s earning call.
This achievement for the Series X|S–as well as the PS5 (which is also the fastest-selling PlayStation console ever)–are notable due to the ongoing chip shortage.
Xbox also had a strong quarter with total gaming revenue, having it rise by 11%, or $357 million for the period. Xbox hardware sales surged even higher, by a whopping 172%. However, content and services has declined by 4% due to lower third-party game sales.
