According to a report by the Spanish website Vandal, Sony is said to have sold around 43,000 PS5 consoles in Spain in the week of launch. Competitor Microsoft on the other hand is said to have only sold a good 14,100 Xbox Series X / S.
Xbox Series X / S sales in Spain similar to previous generations
According to Vandal, the two Xbox Series consoles sold similarly to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 in 2013. On closer inspection, the Xbox One was able to sell 15,000 times in the week of its market launch and the Xbox 360 around 14,900 times in Spain. According to Microsoft, the launch of the Xbox Series consoles was still the most successful Xbox console release worldwide. Of the 14,100 Microsoft consoles, 10,500 are said to be the Xbox Series X, while the driveless Xbox Series S has sold 3,600 times in Spain.
A similar picture emerges with Sony and the Playstation 5. 38,000 of the approximately 43,000 Playstation 5s sold are the version with UHD Blu-ray drive, while only 5,000 customers have bought the PS5 Digital Edition, which is 100 euros cheaper. With the 43,000 PS5 consoles sold, Sony is said to have clearly beaten the PS4, which had sold 38,000 times for release in Spain. Only the portable PSP was able to sell 54,000 times more frequently in Spain at its market launch in 2005.
