The scarcity and hard-to-get-hold-of nature of the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 has become something of a meme over the past year plus. The new generation of hardware makes lofty promises to consumers, but most are having a very simple problem: they just can’t get hold of the damn machines.
That isn’t impacting the sales of the hardware that is available, though. In a new interview with the New York Times, Microsoft has confirmed Xbox Series X/S systems continue to sell faster than any previous generation of Microsoft consoles. Take that, supply chain issues.
We know the Series X/S have been selling well for a while now; back in January last year, we heard that Xbox Series X/S was the top-selling platform in the UK (though, following that, it was reported that the PS5 outsold the Series X/S 2:1 in Q1 of the same year).
