A new report from Ampere Analysis analyzes the sales of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S from launch to today, the analysis highlights how the Sony console is selling more than the Microsoft platform and provides some pretty interesting data.

Xbox Series X / S would have placed 2.8 million consoles by November, about 100,000 units less than the Xbox One which in the same period had reached 2.9 million units. Sony has instead sold 4.2 million PS5s, numbers in line with those of PlayStation 4 in the same time frame.

According to the analysis, PlayStation 5 could have sold over five million pieces to date in case of regular stocks. Ampere expects PS5 to reach 7.6 / 8 million consoles sold by the end of March, surpassing the 7.5 million PS4s distributed as of March 31, 2014.
