Sony’s new console is the main contributor to the increase in console sales

I still remember the day I was able to get my hands on my PS5It seems unbelievable the number of hours that I had to take care of her to be available in certain establishments. Since then, I have enjoyed like a little girl every time I started playing a game because the experience is sensational. Until recently, it was almost mission impossible to get the new Sony console and this was due to the great lack of stock.

And today, after a few weeks where, finally, PS5 units increased in all establishments, more and more players are done with theirs. On another side, Xbox and Nintendo Switch console sales are down compared to last year 2022.

This is why PS5 sales are skyrocketing

  • Since the launch of the PS5 and throughout 2022, units were practically rare.
  • The increase in these in establishments since March 2023, drove the increase in sales to 67%.
  • Instead, sales of Xbox Series X and S, fell up to 13% compared to last March 2022.
  • For its part, the console Nintendo Switch, also suffered a drop in sales of up to 19%.
  • Total console sales during the first quarter of 2023, they increased by 41% compared to the first quarter of 2022.
  • This console sale is led by the PS5, which got a year-over-year sales increase of no less than 369%followed by Switch with 18% less and Xbox Series X | S with 10%.
  • Those data met through the GSD, where the sale of games and consoles is recorded.

The PS5 also saw the sale of its accessories increase

Just as the console’s sales increased out of sheer madness, so too did its accessories. These sold nothing more and nothing less than 1.5 million unitsbe the DualSense controller the main protagonist.

The increase in PlayStation 5 sales is something that cannot be much doubted. If you still don’t have your console and want to get yours, I didn’t hesitate.
