Tech Powerup - Xbox Outsells PlayStation in the US by $200 million in June, Sets Hardware Sales Record
 
“According to NPD data, Xbox just set a new hardware sales record the past month of June in the U.S., outselling PlayStation to the tune of a cool $200 million. The Xbox division cumulatively brought in a total $401 million dollars in the past month of June, marking a year-over-year (YoY) revenue growth to the tune of 112%.
 
Impressive as that record (and outselling PlayStation specifically) are, hardware really is one of the lesser sources of revenue in the gaming landscape. Hardware gaming sales for the first half of 2021 totaled $2.3 billion for Hardware (consoles) and $1.2 billion for Accessories - but the brunt of the revenue flows from Content (which includes software sales, DLC, and subscriptions), which brought in some $25.4 billion in revenues in the same timeframe.”
 
 
Both Xbox and PlayStation probably would have exceeded these sales figures if they had been more readily available for purchase.

    Think the PS4 overtook the XBox last get, this is only fair.

    The console wars are so close every generation but I think the consensus is correct with the series X holding a slight edge

    This^^^

    It is 100% down to availability. It's who ever has more to actually sell for the month is who is going to sell the most.

    There has been a few PS5 exclusive games this gen that have justified my console for me. Demon souls and Returnal have been fantastic.

    I think a lot of it is the great Game Pass option for Microsoft but I personally think PlayStation had better exclusives last generation. It will be interesting to see how that plays out this generation.
