Microsoft Explains Why It Isn't Releasing Xbox One Sales Numbers Anymore

Microsoft Explains Why It Isn't Releasing Xbox One Sales Numbers Anymore

What wasn't clear, however, was by how much.

"Turning to our expectations for fiscal 2019, we expect sales of current-generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony to continue to be strong, with the installed base growing to 130 million consoles by the end of calendar 2018 from 103 million at the end of calendar 2017".

So, assuming that if EA's Predictions are correct, then the Xbox One should have sold 29.4 million units by December 31st, 2017 already, considering that Sony itself estimated to have sold 73.6 million PS4 units by that same date.

A little math is required to figure out the breakdown, but the 103 million combined sales leads to a clear answer. In the Sony's recent fiscal year ending on March 31, revealed that it has sold 76.1 million PS4 consoles since launch.

Microsoft Explains Why It Isn't Releasing Xbox One Sales Numbers Anymore

For a while now Microsoft has refused to release sales numbers of its latest generation console, the Xbox One, and in an interview with Variety, it reaffirmed the reason why.

Electronic Arts has provided us with more official sales data about the current-gen consoles, which is always something relevant as Xbox One sales data haven't been officially released for years now. Switch sales stand at 17.79 million, as of the latest financial report, and there's high expectations for the rest of the year as well.

Independent studio Saber Interactive has announced that NBA Playgrounds 2 will arrive on May 22, 2018, for $19.99 on the PS4, XBOX One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC. According to Phil Spencer at the time, active user numbers were far more important than sales.
