It doesn’t stop there. According to Microsoft leadership, the Xbox Series X/S console duo is breaking new sales records since the system released in 2020. “We sold more Xbox Series X/S consoles life to date than any previous generation of Xbox, have been market leader in North America in the last three quarters across next-gen consoles,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in the company’s Fiscal Year 2022 earnings call.

This reflects previous comments from Nadella, who had previously said the Series X/S gen was the fastest-selling generation.

“Xbox Series S and X are our fastest-selling consoles ever, with more consoles sold life-to-date than any previous generation,”Nadella said last year in a FY2021 earnings call. The CEO had also said that Microsoft is “all in on gaming” at the time.
