An industry insider has estimated how many Xbox Series X/S consoles have been sold so far and the number might surprise you.

It has been very difficult for customers all around the world to buy the Xbox Series X/S models. However, this hasn’t stopped the consoles from flying off the shelves.

Total Worldwide Xbox Series X/S Sales Figures – October 2021

The Xbox Series X/S was Microsoft’s most successful console launch ever and the sales keep on rising. This has later led to record earnings from Microsoft.

However, the company is quite secretive regarding the actual numbers of console sales. Luckily, industry expert Daniel Ahmad has provided a reliable estimate on how many Xbox Series X/S consoles have been sold so far.

He believes that Microsoft has sold over 8 million Xbox Series X/S consoles worldwide as of October 2021. Microsoft has not confirmed this figure, but it is likely to be a very good prediction.

This is an extremely impressive number, and one that has surely been boosted by the limited edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X. However, this figure pales in comparison to its main console rival, the PS5.

Xbox Series X/S vs PS5 Sales So Far

Back in June, we reported that the PS5 revenue was 90% higher than the Xbox Series X/S. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft’s console is still lagging behind in sales now.

Sony’s new earnings report revealed how many PS5s have sold so far and it is millions more than the Xbox Series X/S.

We will have to wait and see whether Xbox can ever catch up. It seems insurmountable right now, but things can quickly change.
