The Xbox Series consoles managed to overtake the PlayStation 5 and even the Nintendo Switch as the top-selling consoles in the first quarter.

After more than a year and a half since their launch, the Xbox Series game consoles have finally managed to outdo their competitors and become the top-selling consoles on the market.

Thanks to the high availability of Microsoft consoles in March, according to the NPD Group, it was the Xbox Series that became the market leaders for the entire first quarter, beating both the PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch. However, only in terms of money. In quantitative terms, the Nintendo console still remained unattainable.

Also last March was the best for the Xbox in 11 years, which indicates a successful current generation of consoles.

At the same time, analysts note that while Microsoft did have excellent supplies in March, they were able to meet only part of the demand. That is, if there was no shortage of consoles, sales would be even higher. But this applies to all current set-top boxes in the last year and a half.

As for the rest of the data from the report, we can note Elden Ring, which remains the best-selling game since the beginning of the year, and the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, which remains the best-selling gaming accessory since the beginning of the year.
