This month saw the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S worldwide. The two next-generation consoles launched to record-breaking sales, according to VGChartz estimates.
Vandal has now reported on the launch week sales for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in Spain. The PS5 was the higher selling console selling 43,000 units in the country. 38,000 of the units sold of the PS5 were for the more expensive disc version, while the Digital Edition accounted for 5,000 of the units sold.
The Xbox Series X|S sold 14,100 units in its launch week on sale. 10,500 of the units sold were the Xbox Series X, while 3,600 were the Xbox Series S.
The PS5 launch figure is higher than other previous PlayStation console launches. The PS4 sold 38,000 units at launch, the PS3 sold 35,000 units, and the PS2 sold 40,000 units. The biggest PlayStation launch in history in Spain is the handheld, the PSP, which sold 54,000 units at launch.
The Xbox Series X|S figure is almost exactly the same as the Xbox One and Xbox 360, which sold 15,000 and 14,900 units, respectively at launch.
It should be noted the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S are completely soldout and launch sales could have been much higher if more consoles were made available.
The PS5 sold an estimated 2.1 to 2.5 million units worldwide when you add up its two staggered launch dates, while the Xbox Series X|S sold an estimated 1.2 to 1.4 million units worldwide on its launch day.
