Idle Sloth has shared a slide from the ID@Xbox Developer Accelerator Program that reveals over 21 million Xbox Series X|S consoles have been sold since their release in November 2020. The number seems to confirm that Microsoft’s hardware isn’t selling anywhere near as well as Sony’s, whose PlayStation 5 is listed with global sales of over 38 million, per data from VGChartz, although Nintendo Switch blows away both, with a figure of 126 million. Another slide suggests that in-game advertising is coming to Xbox games soon.
