The PlayStation 5 is going to sell a lot better than the Xbox Series X|S this year.
That’s according to Piers Harding-Rolls, an analyst with London-based data and analytics firm Ampere Analysis. In a video that was tweeted by the company earlier this week, Harding-Rolls shares his belief that Sony’s next-generation console will outsell Microsoft’s alternatives “two-to-one” in 2022 as supply increases over the course of the year.

“It looks like the availability of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles is going to improve slowly over the year, and our expectation is that Sony will outsell Microsoft two-to-one,” Harding-Rolls said before giving his thoughts on which console will make it out on top this year.
“But actually the biggest selling console in the market is going to be Nintendo Switch at 21 million units, and that will be driven by demand for the new Nintendo Switch OLED,” Harding-Rolls predicted.
Sony has called the PS5 its fastest selling console ever, while Microsoft has claimed that its Xbox Series X|S consoles have sold faster than any of its previous-generation systems.
