Xbox One will be the only console to finish in the 50 millions so far.

It seems Nintendo Switch won't be launching relevant games anytime soon to boost its sales as Monster Hunter is doing now...

I find it strange that people are celebrating a milestone which is the less accurate data here, this number might be off by +/-10%.

Good for Xbox One crossing the 50 million mark. It probably will get discontinued not long after the last game for it ships, like the OG Xbox in 2005, and Xbox One in 2016. So assuming it gets discontinued in mid-2022, it can probably climb to like 50.5-50.8 million.

I don't believe there are that many ps5's out there. Of all the people I know, know one has seen one or know's anyone that has one.

I guess PS5 shipments are exactly at 7 million as well by the end of the quarter since there is none. I wonder if it will reach 10 million by the end of June

EDIT: Why the downvotes ?

It still takes time (2-3 weeks) for consoles to ship from the manufacturer to retailers/warehouses around the world. The giant container ships aren't exactly the fastest.

Shipping times are around 4-5 weeks. This does not include transfer times from/into harbours.

Sony should be disclosing their Q1 '21 (Jan thru Mar) financials soon. And Sony, along with Nintendo, still provide actual real sold-through to consumers (not just units shipped) numbers for their consoles every time. I would expect that we will hear exactly where PS5 is for lifetime sales (as of 3/31) then.
