According to an article posted on Ludostrie, Sony is continuing to largely dominate the Xbox Series X/S in European regions, specifically France, where the PS5 is reportedly closing in on a 90% market share compared to Microsoft’s current-generation offering.
The report states that the PS5 has seen sales explode in 2023, which makes sense considering the shortages that plagued Sony’s flagship console since launch are thankfully a thing of the past. Not only that, but sales of Xbox formats in France have seen a major decline in September 2023 despite titles such as Starfield launching
The Nintendo Switch is excluded from the data in the report, however, and we should mention that Ninty’s console has remained very popular in France and current holds a major market share. Still, PS5 seems to be fending off its main rival in the country, and with PS5 Slim just around the corner, Sony’s console should see even more success in the run up to the holiday season.
The PS5 launched in November 2020 in the US, UK, Europe and other major regions, and has shipped over 40 million units worldwide.
