Microsoft probably has to pop the champagne as we write these lines. After recording excellent results in February 2022, with sales of Xbox Series X / S having exceeded those of the PS5 for the 1st time in Europe, the manufacturer continued its momentum in March 2022.

In any case, this is revealed by the latest study by the market analysis firm NPD Group. In effect, the Xbox division had its best March ever, in terms of units sold and dollar sales. Specifically, Xbox surpassed its previous sales records set in March 2011 (in terms of units) and March 2014 (in terms of dollar sales).
