The effects of Covid-19 made it immensely difficult to get enough Consoles to produce in advance. Bottlenecks were the order of the day. None of this was available at the console launch of the PS4, or only to a small extent.
The Xbox Series X can do it together with the Xbox Series S sold to 2.8 million Consoles since the launch in November. This leaves it just behind the Xbox One, which at this point had already been sold 2.9 million times.
Sony can this numbers Outbid again: With 4.2 million sold PS5 consoles they clearly beat the competition, but fall short of their own expectations. Compared to the times numbers the PS4 is Sony completely on par. And that despite an immediate launch in Japan, which did not happen on the PS4. Even with the hype that the PS5 had the result for Sony turn out a little sobering.
