Interesting, but it's hard to put a lot of stock in early sales figures, because of supply constraints.

Are there a bunch of XSXs sitting on the shelf, or are they all sold out?

I am from Spain and I ordered XSX, and I wanted to order PS5 lately. But it turned out that XSX was impossible to buy, it was sold everywhere, then LUCKILY I got the PS5 even without preorder on the release day. Now I am still waiting the preorder XSX to arrive to my house

I can't even find Xbox games and accessories among the biggest retailers over here, so this number is a lot more bigger than what I was expecting.

  • Near 20.000 units that will arrive by December 15th.
  • Retailers do not expect to have units of PS5 consoles on shelves until March-April.

Before we laugh too hard, and rejoice at this epic victory form our benevolent and allmighty Sony lords, let’s take into account that there’s not a single XSX available for sale in the entire Iberian peninsula. Not online, not in retail. Apparently MS, may our Sony Lords confuse them, sold every single one that was allocated here.

Spain is always PS country iic. With the later production shortage of SXSS, i don't think MS allocated too much over there. So it makes sense for each of them to select their battles 🤷‍♀️

I wonder if somebody named their child Playstation Fifth or something.

But the best launch for a Sony console in Spain is for the PSP with 54 200 units
So even then people already started to go after portables...If Sony did not discontinue PSP it would be trading blows with Switch these days. Probably not, but still it would sell. Though, the problem was that PSP/Vita had a separate set of games unlike Switch.

Xbox fan base is pretty loyal. Would’ve expected even less considering the horrible years they’ve had, with an uneventful 2020 in terms of software and a 2021 that looks like like one of the worst droughts in recent memory.

Hates? Or just doesn’t have a good history of good enough games for them to want it?

Well, it goes back to the 360 era, when Xbox was at it's most poular and had great exclusives. So there must be more to it 🤷‍♂️

Some cultures are just more susceptible to brand loyalty I assume (See japan and Nintendo for another example). It's only really the US and UK who don't have any brand allegiances.

Here in Norway, they are both sold out.. but PS5 was sold out before day one, while you could still get and Xbox series x this week at some places.

Well, Spain is sonyland. Older people even call any console "la plei" (the play), no matter if it's an Xbox or a 3DS. If that ever changes, which I doubt, it sure as hell won't happen overnight. Sony has even published a 15 minute-long ad where you could see several celebrities (youtubers and streamers, actors, comedians, big names in sport, etc) talking about PS5. We will never see something like that with Xbox.

That said, Xbox sold as much as it could possibly sell given the lack of supply, which was very short because Microsoft doesn't really believe it has a chance. Hopefully they will improve their numbers after the disaster that were Xbox One's numbers here.

And yeah, that DBZ opening is the best thing ever. :messenger_relieved:
