Hardware isn’t particular surprising. Have to imagine that Spain is fairly low on Microsoft’s priority list, combined with the fact that more PS5’s are being produced than Xbox’s for one reason to another.

I would say, however, that it’d be a serious reach to take these numbers and conclude that Xbox is “irrelevant” like many are want to do.

Sony bought 80K of AMD's wafer share, literally the Lion's share, Xbox SX|S got 40K out of 120K:



This is early on, now Sony is pushing for even a bigger share as aiming for 14.8M consoles in the second fiscal year.
That was for Q4 2020.
We don't have Q1 2021 shares yet but I expect similar shares.

Xbox can't even outsell ps4 in Spain and the ps4 is more supply constraint then the Xbox. Despite this big online campaign by Xbox guru's it's still tumbling into irrelevance in most of the world.
I think it's going to be very difficult for Microsoft to reclaim ground in continental Europe. They don't have much market share there at the moment.
and Nintendo just laughs at Sony. lol
Why would Nintendo be laughing at Sony? They can both be successful (and currently both are very successful).

I was under the impression Sony was making almost no PS5 Digital consoles. The loss on those have to be huge for them.

I kind of wish I had gotten the digital version, as I'm pretty much decided to just go digital from here on out.

I'm surprised too, I thought the digital SKU would be a much smaller %. I wish they'd give us the Switch split as well since it would be interesting to see how well the Lite is doing.

It's just the news cycle. Right now MS is announcing things (or having positive things rumoured) and Sony isn't. But I bet in a month's time the opposite will be happening.

and very coincidental it is happening now that reliable sales numbers are coming out, and right before Q4 financial reports will be released which will (and notably wont) say exactly how many consoles have been sold

Crazy how well Sony is producing PS5's considering how much Microsoft is struggling.
In Spain there is stock of Series S everywhere. The sold out ones are Series X, both PS5 SKUs and sometimes PS4.

the funny thing its the spanish xbox fanbase makes a lot of noise,they are very rabid and toxic,and after the fucking reallity exploding in their faces they will go worse
Are you sure it's only in Spain? Go and check how any Gamepass and Jim Ryan threads are in Neogaf or Resetera and compare them vs the real market numbers to see how much Gamepass and evil Jimbo actions are destroying PlayStation.

DE is better so Sony surely? No preowned games. So they can afford the loss.

The Digital PS5 is THE PS5 and you can clearly see it by the design. The disc version is there for markets with crap internet and the hardcore that would’ve thrown a fit if there were no disc version. The media would’ve thrown a party if they had done that mistake, imagine all the clicks.

Digital locks people into the ecosystem. If you’re purchasing the games of course, because ironically enough services like PSNow and Gamepass actually make it much easier to move ecosystems...

I bought the disc version for 2 things:

1- Maybe one day I see a bluray UHD in person and wanna try it. Or try a game from my brother before buying it digitally.
2- I want to minimize Sony's loss in console and maximize it by buying only digital and buy gift cards from Sony directly then buy PS+ from their store with no discount.

If the astroturfers are to be believed xbox has a blank check to do whatever it is they want. Console Sales, game deadlines, review scores, software sold, none of that matters. Its just a bottomless pit to absorb losses to get the rental service up and running.

No one seriously holds this position; you've made up a boogeyman in your head to be angry about. Try to relax, Playstation will be just fine, better even.

Those god damn Xbox shills and astroturfers making Sony close the PSP, Vita and PS3 stores, wind down Japan Studios and forcing the MLB to release a Sony game on Game Pass.

Good luck lads. Meanwhile I'll be on my couch playing my Ps5 like every other Spaniard privileged enough to get their hands on one. Tbh if I'd had the last 10 years Xbox fans have had I'd probably be so board I'd happily sign up to spreading the Gospel of Phil too.

It's not. The past 5 years solid we've had this pro Xbox agenda by the bought out media. I guess it resulted in Xbox getting 10% next gen share instead of 5% lol.

The past 5 years? Do you not recall the shit Microsoft got last year at their showcase? Or just this year when they tried to increase the price of gold?

Is it really anathema to some people here that Xbox is doing well, and that people are actually happy about it? Not everything is some dastardly scheme to kill Playstation, come back to reality.

Where is B Bodomism ?

That's not very many XBox's getting to the UK and it's a key competitive market....
These numbers are for Spain, if I'm not mistaken. Still not good, but I would imagine the difference isn't as drastic in the UK.

Sadly, I agree. But it wont be just spanish xbox fanboys... Its only gonna get worse with the entire xbox fanboy squad the rest of the generation.

Hold on to your butts.

Some of us tried to explain to certain folks that just because they personally dont hear about the DE getting bought doesnt mean Sony isnt making any.

In some insane, weird way to try to dismiss the $399 console.

AH, so it is... I'm terrible for glancing at things too fast.

I do wonder about UK numbers...
Likely that Playstation is ahead, for a variety of reasons.

I'm more so curious as to the numbers we'll get at the end of the generation, and whether or not the gap will tighten between Xbox and Playstation, especially in the key markets such as the UK and the USA. I expect the Playsation to sell roughly as many PS5s as they did PS4s, and Microsoft to sell roughly 360 numbers, barring any catastrophic mistakes by either side.

I got the disc version for movies too. I'm probably the only nutball who still has 3D blu ray movies, lol. (you can watch 3D content with PSVR.)

As long as it means consoles continue to be the dominant way to play games.... and there is some growth, I think that's great!

Sony would like to take the opportunity to thank the people of Europe. Everyone gets a free FIFA.


It's very easy to dominate the world and the narrative when you're controlling the biggest sport event in the world, UEFA Champions League, since 1997:









The number 1 sport watched in the globe, and this is the number 1 sport event watched out of all other competitions collectively. That's one of the many reasons it's dominant. Ads everywhere, xbox only pays shills to do cheap, budget marketing instead of using traditional advertisement. And youngsters watch their football stars playing on PlayStation like Messi and Ronaldo.

It's not doing well. In terms of positive threads and articles sure. But that's the influence a trillion dollar company can buy. In terms of sales and games releasing it's doing worse then ever.

There are Pro-xbox voices out there but I don't think the media as a whole is Pro-xbox. Microsoft has been criticized by the media plenty of times.
13 Nintendo published games in the top 40. Talent wins.
Plus 4/5 in France, 6/10 in Switzerland and 12/20 in Germany. Nintendo has very strong first party sales Europe, and hoping the success of Monster Hunter Rise means we'll see more third party Switch success in the future as well.

In fairness Xbox bought fifa game rights for a few years and even bundled it. That didn't do diddly squat. Is Europeans are like the Japanese. Nintendo and PlayStation for life. Pc healthy too.

I'm not really sure I can agree with you; Xbox One was a pretty damning time for Xbox as a whole, hell you could argue that the tail end of the 360 gen wasn't too hot either. Comparatively, the Series X and its prospective pipeline at least looks promising.

And seeing as Series X's are selling as fast as Microsoft can produce them, I don't think they're doing all too poorly sales wise either.

If you choose to believe that every positive article and thread is covert Microsoft shilling, you are free to do so, but I think you'd be taking all this a bit too seriously if that's the case.

Yeah we tend to lean to Japanese products in general as Toyota and Nissan are the only truly cars that are made to last and sustain the heat around here and do actually preproduction tests of their 4x4 here. Others like Honda and Mazda are good as well, but Koreans are taking over with Chinese cars as well for offering more for less money even though reliability isn't the same but the bargain is usually is too good.
