In terms of dollar sales, the Xbox series consoles were the best-selling US console of March 2022, and they’re also the best-selling US console of 2022 so far according to NPD. Microsoft had its best-ever March performance in terms of console sales for both units and dollar sales, beating the previous records set by the Xbox 360 in 2011 (units) and the Xbox One in 2014 (dollar sales).
It was beaten by the Nintendo Switch in both categories in terms of units sold, though, although all consoles are currently hit by shortages. The Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller was also the best-selling accessory of March and continues to be the best-selling accessory of 2022 so far.
The Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S (collectively, the Xbox Series X/S) are home video game consoles developed by Microsoft. They were both released on November 10, 2020, as the fourth generation of the Xbox console family, succeeding the Xbox One. Along with Sony’s PlayStation 5, also released in November 2020, the Xbox Series X and Series S are part of the ninth generation of video game consoles.
The Xbox Series X has higher-end hardware and supports higher display resolutions (up to 8K resolution), along with higher frame rates and real-time ray tracing; it also has a high-speed solid-state drive (SSD) to reduce loading times. The less expensive Xbox Series S uses the same CPU, but has a less powerful GPU, has less memory and internal storage, and lacks an optical drive. Both consoles are designed to support nearly all Xbox One games, controllers and accessories, including those games from older Xbox consoles supported by Xbox One’s backwards compatibility.
At launch, Microsoft positioned their first-party games and several third-party games to be available for both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One to help transition between generations, providing the “Smart Delivery” distribution framework to freely provide further optimizations of an Xbox One game for either the Xbox Series X or Series S. The consoles are also compatible with the gaming subscription service Xbox Game Pass, as well as the cloud game-streaming platform Xbox Cloud Gaming.
